MCS Movement Control Script
By GoDevil

Today I am announcing the release of a new Game Guru LUA script designed to allow non-coders to quickly create movement and sound control for GG Classic*. This script is provided as public domain. You are free to use the script without cost. Please note that beyond the included operators manual, there is no additional support provided. * Not yet tested on GG Max.

The MCS script can be attached to non-static entities in Game Guru, allowing the developer to control movements of the entity during game play. The script also includes the ability to move the camera (player) along with the moving entity, allowing the developer new and exciting ways to develop interesting games.

MCS is designed for non-coders. All of the code needed to perform the movements is already complete. The game developer simply enters step by step information, such as direction, speed, ascend/descend rates, turns, sounds, and other controls. Once each of the movement steps has been entered, the resulting script is attached to the non-static entity in the Game Guru editor. During game play the entity can be activated based upon how the movement sequence controls have been set-up.

If interested the script and supporting materials are available in the Scripts section of the forum.

If you'd like to get an idea of some of the things that the script can do:

Many thanks to AmenMoses and Smallg for there many helpful answers over the years. I gave Amen a shout-out in the operators manual for helping me with the sound controls.

Thank you OldFlak. One of these days I'll figure out how to link you tube videos to the forum

As for this video I did it several years ago when I was just starting to work on the MCS concept. It's too long and kind of silly, but you'll get the idea. There are now many additional features to the MCS script I released.
