Single bullet loading & ammo counter confusion
« on: June 03, 2015, 05:54:17 AM »
Hey, I just remembered that there was some confusion concerning the ammo counter in this thread but I forgot to post a simple solution I had in mind for it back then.

Let's look at the ammo counter and how it's animated:
I bet most players intuitively assume that bullets are used from the left side first, because that's what it looks like.



But if there was a simple one-frame inbetween animation, the logic would be obvious:
Bullets from right side are used first and the remaining ones move towards the right side, as if pushed by a magazine spring.

I don't know if something like this would be as simple to implement as it is to draw, but if it is, give it a go.

That should definitely be implementable.
Good idea!
