From the Forum – Issue #156

Forum iconWelcome to this week’s From the Forum. In this post, we highlight a few Corona Community Forums posts that cover important topics.

Rotating bullets

Space shooters are popular and trying to give them unique gameplay can be a challenge. In this post, discover solutions for rotating bullets with the ship firing them.

Scratch off

Corona’s graphics APIs make it easy to conceal an image underneath another image and allow the app user to “erase” areas of the top image to see the underlying image — but how do you know when you’ve uncovered a certain portion of the image below? This thread offers solutions.

Not enough time

Corona offers multiple ways to measure time depending on what you need to know. In this thread, learn how to get the elapsed time for the entire game run.

Do you have a particular forum thread that was helpful for you? Let us know about it! Email, put FTF: and the forum title in the subject, and include the URL in the email. We will consider adding it to an upcoming edition of From the Forum.
