In this week’s tutorial, guest writer Ed Maurina explains basic particle emitters and some of the properties which fuel them. Learn how to create effects such as fire, waterfalls, and explosions, all of which are common in game design.
Since the “newEmitter()” display object was introduced in Corona Daily Build #2214, the Corona Labs staff and community members have illustrated various methods for the loading/usage of emitter definition files. However, some users are still unsure about how to create and edit emitters. In this tutorial, we’ll briefly examine emitter authoring tools, the Starling format, and emitter loaders.
Last week, we announced support for Particle Designer 2.0. This week’s tutorial illustrates how to configure, export, and display amazing particle systems within a Corona app. Read further to learn how.
During this week’s Corona Geek Hangout we looked at particle effect demos, talked about Corona apps running on Windows Phone, and discussed app monetization differences between Android and iOS. Listen for the parts about Google Glass, keyword stuffing, and adventurous Canadian border crossings.
We are very pleased to announce support for Particle Designer 2.0, one of the best particle effects editors in the market. Used by major mobile studios and indie developers alike, Particle Designer features 48 fully-configurable properties, multiple emitters, realtime preview, and more.
