  1. FierceTiger


    In VB.Net, in my game inside my bullet constructor i would like to have rectangles i guess you could say assigned to each bullet, ship, enemy ect. That way I can do rectangle.intersectwith to figure out collision detection. Would any one be able to help me with the coding for the rectangles?

    help with game

    ok im working on my game in vb.net, ive created a loop for bullets to be created allowing me to fire multiple bullets. But when i try to loop through them again to remove the ones off screen my program freezes up and tells me that the index was out of range. It removes one at a time but if theres more than one bullet on the screen the game freezes. heres my code For i = 0 To bullets.Count - 1 Dim b As Bullet b = bullets.Item(i) If b.loc.Y <= 25 Then bullets.Remove(b) End If what am i missing?

    AI in Vb.net 2003

    How would I create a simple ai for an enemy ship in a game like space invaders, insteaded of just having it randomly fire and move back and forth across the screen. I want the ship to be able to think a little bit, instead of being stuck on a predictable track... (Note: I have no experience in A.I)

    Collision Detection in VB

    Im doing a game in 2d, using graphics ive created myself... I just want to know how to see if the bullet collides with the ships, that way if it does I can make the ship blow up. When Ive tried detecting the collision eiether the bullet goes right through or if it goes past it but not through it then it explodes.

    Posting Again

    I know ive posted several times but i think its the lack of VB usage that has left my questions unanswered. Once again if anyone has used VB and would like to give me some assistance with drawing directly onto a form, or would know a book to buy for game programming using VB it would help alot. THX

Now I know its not the best from what ive been told or most ppl dont use it but I want to be fluent in it enough before i move on to a language like C++.If anyone here has used Visual Basic and would like to help me in game programing using it( simple stuff right now, im thinking about space invaders) i would appreciate any advice. If you want i am on almost everyday and you can eiether post here or send me a private message. THX
