    Has anyone TOFTT yet?

    Just wondering: When you tap on the objects / men to shoot, are the shots fired automatically self guided? Saw a video on youtube, and it looked like you just tap on the men, and that's it; they do all the rest...

    Relax dude, this is not a chat... Give people some time to reply.

    Haven't tested it myself yet, but it sure looks promising, so +1 on the initial question.

    here's how it works

    Came across this thread, don't know if any of you have indeed TOFTT yet, so here's how it works.

    Basically, you touch a guy and stroke in the direction you want to shoot, and he shoots in that direction. Yes, I said "touch", "guy", and "stroke" in that order in the same sentence [cue beavis'n'butthead chuckling]. The faster the stroke (drag?), the faster the shot, to some extent (there are a defined minimum and maximum speeds).

    That being said, it's also possible to just tap very near a guy, and the shot will fire, at the defined minimum speed, in the direction calculated from the guy's mid-point to the spot you tapped. This is a highly inaccurate way to play it on the touch screen, but worked really well for me during development, clicking the screen in the simulator.
