How can I shake the screen or the image sprite? I want the character to shake when there is dammage or an angry reaction for example.

Choose a method: To shake the whole scene (including sprites, not sprites only) you can use the vpunch or hpunch transitions.

Or you can use this old cookbook recipe from the wiki (don't be afraid, it's old but it still works):

Alternatively, you can use an ATL transform. Personally, I think the python shake effect is still the best option.

There is any way to only shake the sprite? not the hole scene?

Look at the example script in the shake effect page.

Code: Select all

# shaking the sprite by placing it at the center (where it already was)
ph "Ng!..."
show phoenix at center, Shake(None, 1.0, dist=5)
with None
When you use the effect in a sprite you only have to add its position (left, center or right). If you don't the shaking sprite will appear at left position.

Ok that was actually really easy to do, tks for the help. When I first found that example It looked really complicated but it was actually quite simple to use.
