Orx - Portable Game Engine
Object Lifetimes
28 May 2019

Lifetimes for objects have been enhanced. If you add a lifetime property to an object with a value like:

LifeTime = 5.0

The object will live for 5 seconds.

Orx now supports literals. These are:

  • child
  • fx
  • sound
  • spawn
And of course, these can be combined for rich variations. Read more at: http://orx-project.org/wiki/en/tutorials/lifetime
