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.
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.
