Fire Breathing Dragon Help

Okay... i have a dragon(as the player) that i want to breath fire. i have made a weapon(as i was told to do) which is long range, and i set it as bullet from player to target, and i set the animation as my fire. AND... i made an action that, when the player steps onto the first map, should equip this weapon...but it doesnt...or if it does then the animation doesnt show up....Does anybody know why?

Thanks in Advance

P.S. i am using the Wyrm animation as the dragon...

You seem a little vague about exactly where the problem is happening... does the animation not show up because the weapon is not equipped automatically, or because something is wrong with the weapon? If the former, why not just open up the inventory screen and equip it manually?

Incidentally, if you're trying to have it automatically equip a weapon for the player, make sure the weapon is already in the player's inventory (via another event action if need be). If it's not there, he can't equip it. 🙂

I don't know what I'm talking about.
Oh no, here comes another learning experience.
Oderint dum metuant?

ok, i did that, and im pretty sure it equipped the weapon( because it has a high damage and i kill people faster than before now) but it does not make any animation now. How can i solve this?

Check and make sure your animation works. Load the animation by itself on your map as a stamp. Can you see it? If not, then this is your problem. If you can see the animation, then take a look at the weapon. Make sure that you have the ranges set properly(min at 0, max greater than min). Make sure that you did select your animation, and don't have it defaulted at no animation. Make sure the weapon is equipped(look at the player's inventory).

Do this and let us know what you find.

i tried to use it just regular in the map... but it still didnt show up. Is there anything special i have to do to make animations? i took the images and put them how i want them.....it is probably something easy but i cannot get it to work.

Did you check that all of the images met the requirements I posted in now-locked topic? Make sure that every image in the animation works properly...

How did you make your animation? Is this an animated gif or something, or did you take still pictures and link them together within Coldstone's animation editor to create an animation?
