Add a trail effect to any object with one line of code! Just call create_trail once (it does not need to go in step or draw event).

Most trail effects are only intended for finger swipes. These path-based trail effects are already set up to work with projectiles and swords!

Unleash the full potential of trail effects!

  • use any sprite as a texture (samples included)
  • create_trail returns the trail object ID so you can modify its properties on the fly
  • modify the trail path directly using Game Maker built-in functions. No need to deal with complicated arrays!
  • Bonus Feature: realistic particle explosions!

Trails need not be straight and narrow! It is possible to create your own path building algorithm inside of the trail_path_update function.
