So I have a space ship. I want it to alternate firing between the left and right guns when I hold the mouse. I've messed with it a lot and have produced a few different behaviors but never the one I want. At one point I had it shooting and alternating correctly but only when I repeatedly clicked the LMB and not when I held it.
I started over and now I can tell the game knows when I am holding the button but there are different problems now. When I hold the LMB the bullet spawns and stays stuck to its spawn point until I release the button, then it flies as it should. However, when I fire another bullet, the old one disappears. I haven't got around to adding a timer yet, as I can't get the initial behavior I want yet. Some advice would be much appreciated. Keep in mind, I'm pretty much an absolute beginner!
[Here is a link to a recorded .gif that shows behavior.]
and here is my code.
#Start of player "action" controller.
var Bullet = preload("res://Scenes/Bullet.tscn")
var alt = 0
var LMB_held = false
var bi = Bullet.instance()
if event is InputEventMouseButton:
alt == 0
if alt == 1:
Ignore the LMB_Held variable. It isn't used right now, I was trying a few things and haven't deleted it yet.
