    Question How do I change the overall speed of my game?

    Hi guys!

    I'm making a tower defense game and I want to allow the user to change the speed of the game (as in most games of this style).

    I've tried with the "timer-based movement", but doesn't work with custom movements. I've also tried increasing the "frame rate", works fine, but I think is not the best way (for obvious reasons).

    So I ask, how I can increase or decrease the overall speed of my game? or what is the best way to do this?

    Thanks!

    timer-based custom movement is the key.. if you stick with it you will succeed (timer delta not runtime options box). one solution is to use a gamespeed value that is reachable by any movement ingame. a global value for example.

    that value can then be modified by any user input.

    Tower defense games normally have the option to set speed to x2, x3 and so forth of the normal speed. You could solve the speed timing by putting all game mechanics in one fast loop, which is run as many times as the game speed is set to (store this in a variable, that is 1 by default, but can be altered during run time by the player).
