Hello! I posted this on the subreddit but haven't had much luck so wanted to try posting it here, too.
I've been following this tutorial.
Where in the tutorial I have reached is the culmination of episodes 1-8 of the series. I will link the episodes I think are relevant to my situation here:
Creating an enemy
I also edited my default animation code to match what another reddit post on the same issue suggested
I have a creature (slime) in my game, which has a little animation that should be playing continually ("default"). When I play the scene for the slime by itself, it animates.
If I put more than one instance of the slime in my main scene (with a dungeon etc), only one of them animates. This has happened both when I drag them into the scene, and when the enemies are tied to a tilemap.
I get no errors when I run the game, until I kill the specific slime that animates. When I do that, the errors I get are:
E 0:00:18:0089 Node not found: ../slime/Sprite:frame
<C Source> scene/main/node.cpp:1382 @ get_node()
E 0:00:18:0099 On Animation: 'default', couldn't resolve track: '../slime/Sprite:frame'
<C Source> scene/animation/animation_player.cpp:243 @ _ensure_node_caches()
These errors are repeated several times.
I looked this issue up on the subreddit and found someone suggesting that the animations are being reset every frame. I set the code to what they suggested. At the moment, the lines of code related to the slimes' animations are:
if not get_node("anim").current_animation == "default":
movedir = dir.rand()
In entity.gd, which slime.gd extends
if TYPE == "ENEMY":
texture_default = $Sprite.texture
texture_hurt = load($Sprite.texture.get_path().replace(".png","_hurt.png"))
Also in entity.gd, when a creature is hurt
if hitstun > 0:
hitstun -= 1
$Sprite.texture = texture_hurt #This triggers
$Sprite.texture = texture_default
if TYPE == "ENEMY" && health <= 0:
var death_animation = preload("res://enemies/enemy_death.tscn").instance()
death_animation.global_transform = global_transform
for area in $hitbox.get_overlapping_areas():
var body = area.get_parent()
if hitstun == 0 and body.get("DAMAGE") != null and body.get("TYPE") != TYPE:
health -= body.get("DAMAGE")
hitstun = 10
knockdir = global_transform.origin - body.global_transform.origin
Thank you in advance for any tips or advice you have!
