Easily create and draw a Trail for any object!
This asset includes 4 scripts:
scr_create_trail_full (Added in version 1.0.2)
scr_draw_trail (Modified in 1.0.2)
You have the flixibility to choose the sprite, define how long the trail should be, offset the image to create a changing trail (see rocket thrust in demo), scale the sprite image of the trail, set alpha/transparency,as well as the option to fade and pinch the end of the trail.
In the demo, I also show a way to implement screen wrapping (when the object wraps from one side of the screen to another).
I have used these scripts in my Battlestar Glow Hockey app:
Version 1.0.2. Published January 7, 2016

You can only review assets you've bought.
useless if you want your game to run well.
technically it works well.
but it's poorly optimised. will halve your frames in html5.
Severe Performance Issues
PROS: Definitely easy to pick up and use.
My primary issue is that immediately on the creation of obj_trail there were huge drops in frame rate due to path manipulation. In comparison to it's *free* competitor "draw_tail" which features some frame rate drops, but can still manage to stay stable even during some minor drop offs. Unfortunately, the price doesn't warrant the lack of optimization.
Whoever is using this for your HTML5 game, make sure you have selected "automatic" for WebGL setting from Global Game Settings->HTML5->Garphics.
Very easy to understand code. Thanks for the awesome work.
Is it possible to create tire tracks?
When I try the track moves. Is it possible to make them stick?
great aset ...
