G’day from Australia.
I have just downloaded the Ipad version for Ready Maker, and it looks as though it is a great program.
I do have a question please.
In extremely simply terms could you explain how the random number generator works.
As in introduction to the random number generator, I would like to
- Display a stationary object on the screen.
2. Click on object.
3. Choose a random number.
4. Move object random number of pixels (is it possible to move in pixels?), in a random direction.
5. .Wrap around screen if necessary.
loop back to step 2.
Would it be possible for some kind soul to do this for me and show me a screen dump?
Thank you for your assistance and hooroo for now.
Good day from Arkansas!
Welcome to the Ready community Paul! Glad to have you here.
From what you’ve asked, I have done this:
I placed a simple circle onto the scene
This will be our stationary object for this example. Then I added a random number behavior to the circle
In the event section, I did this to code the object to choose a random number once it is clicked. When it generates a certain number, it will move a certain direction. I gave 2 different examples: if it generates a 1 or a 2
Hope this helps! If you have any other questions or there’s something I missed, definitely let me know!
Thank you SOOOO much for taking the time to explain how random numbers work. I also had a quick look at the video link you gave me.
When you posted it was 12.15 am Monday in Melbourne, South East Australia. I guess it would have been quite late where you are
Best wishes in your studies and in your programming.
I am sure I will be back to ask some more questions.
Oh no, it was 9pm (21:00) when I posted- but I do indeed stay up VERY late every night
I’m glad I could help! Thank you for your support as well, I really appreciate it.
If you have any other questions, I’ll be more than happy to help!
