I just began using Multimedia Fusion 2. I'm trying to create an overhead shooter like Shoock Troopers, wich does not use a twin stick set up but instead a single stick and a strafe button. So far, I have been able to do that, but what I don't know how is to control the rate of fire. If you press the fire button once, you shoot one bullet, but if you keep it pressed, it turns into a mess: a single line of repeated bullets. I dont' know how I could limit the amount of bullets you shoot, so it does not turn into a long line of fire. How could I achieve this?
I have included the file I'm working on.
Controls: move with the arrows, shoot with Z, keep pressing Z plus the direction you want to strafe while shooting.
