Surfing Event System
Version 1.1
Author: Mjustin

Version History

  • 1.0: Barely functional surfing system.
  • 1.1: Fixed a couple glitches and now it works much better.


This event system allows you to create a controllable surfing scene for use as a minigame, a transition between two continents, or whatever you can imagine!


  • Surf across water, ice, lava, or whatever you please
  • Dodge obstacles that can cause a Game Over


None yet, but I'll get some up as soon as possible.

Author's Notes

  • I don't have a graphic for a surfboard, so I just used a flat rock from the tileset.
  • There is a glitch where your character can get separated from the surfboard. It has no effect on gameplay, but it's still annoying anyway.
  • Thanks to Kipe for bringing some glitches to my attention.

So, download the demo and tell me what you think!

Thanks. I fixed the first two glitches you mentioned just by making the game find the player's map X and suspend certain directions accordingly. It doesn't appear to produce any slowdown so I figured it was the best solution.

As for the surfboard problem, another graphic was exactly what I was thinking, but I'm no good with MS Paint, etc. I suppose it might not be too hard though. What would be really cool is a graphic with a surfboard so it could be used in any situation.

I thought this script was good so I tried making a surfboard for you.
I'm no expert, but here is what I came up with:
