About this blog

This is my first blog and I will make a First Player Minigame to have all the stuff I need for a bigger game.

I hope I can use most of them with Leadwerks5 later, but it's allways a good training.

 

Since 3 years I have not programmed anything with Leadwerks, that has nothing to do with Leadwerks it was a real life thing.

So I must learn the stuff from the beginning. My natural language is not English, I hope you can forgive me a mistake or two .

If you want test the code you make a new project and a map. I made some test objects to see if climbing fails or not and under which steps I can crouch

and on which step I can jump.

I make this blog for me to save the source code. Two times in my life I lost nearly all my source I programmed by HardDrive crashes.

So it is a nice thing to have that online. And for beginnes to have a start code.

In your project folder, by me in "documents/Leadwerks/Projects/.... <-- here are my Projects"

you have a subfolder also named projects:

"documents/Leadwerks/Projects/ProjectName/projects/"

by me in the folder windows is the VisualStudio 17 project: "ProjectName.sln"  << Start this with Doubleclick, but first install VisualStudio.

 

I delete all the stuff inside main.cpp, App.cpp and app.h

and put the following code in main.cpp

change your mapname  > "YouMapName.map" from your project and compile. I can not say whats the menu names in english because I have the german GUI.

For VisualStudio tutorials look in the Web or YouTube, I am sure there are dozens of them.

}

{ 
	ppos = thePlayer->GetPosition();
	mausdata = window->GetMousePosition();
	mausx += (mausdata[0] - window->GetWidth() / 2) * 0.1;

	}

	//Shift: run
	if (window->KeyDown(Key::Shift) && sdown == 0)
	{
		sdown = 1;
		movespeed = 5.0;
	}

	// not CTRL: stay
	if (!window->KeyDown(Key::ControlKey) && cdown == 1)
	{
		cdown = 0;
		movespeed = 3.0;
		ppos = thePlayer->GetPosition();
		theCam->SetPosition(0,1.65, 0);
		crouch = 0;

	}

	// CTRL: crouch
	if (window->KeyDown(Key::ControlKey) && cdown == 0)
	{
		cdown = 1;
		movespeed = 1.0;
		crouch = 1;
		ppos = thePlayer->GetPosition();
		theCam->SetPosition(0,0.95,0);
	}

	// Walk with movespeed when press Key W
	walk = (window->KeyDown(Key::W) - window->KeyDown(Key::S)) * movespeed;

	strafe = (window->KeyDown(Key::D) - window->KeyDown(Key::A)) * strafespeed;

	// check if player is on ground, this means velo[1] = "y direction" has no velocity = 0
	// in this way the player kann not jump if he is already in the air.
	velo = thePlayer->GetVelocity();
	if (velo[1] == 0.0)
	{
		jump = window->KeyHit(Key::Space) * jumpspeed;
	}
	else
	{
		jump = window->KeyHit(Key::Space) * 0.0;
	}


	if (mausy > 50.0) mausy = 50.0;
	if (mausy < -90.0 ) mausy = -90.0;
	thePlayer->SetInput(mausx, walk, strafe, jump, crouch);
	//void SetInput(float angle, float move, float strafe = 0, float jump = 0, const bool crouch = false, const float maxaccel = 1, const float maxdecel = 0.5, const bool detailed = false, const float maxrotationspeed = 5.0)
	
	theCam->SetRotation(mausy, 0, 0);
	mdat = theCam->GetRotation();
	
}

 

The next step I will made is to put the code into a class.

Use the C Key for toggle crouching and use the CTRL for faster runnig, the I have walk with Key W, jogging with Shift+W and running with CTRL and W.
