Constructor

Phaser. Particle

new Particle(game, x, y, key, frame)

Create a new Particle object. Particles are extended Sprites that are emitted by a particle emitter such as Phaser.Particles.Arcade.Emitter.

Parameters
Name Type Description
game Phaser.Game

A reference to the currently running game.

x number

The x coordinate (in world space) to position the Particle at.

y number

The y coordinate (in world space) to position the Particle at.

key string | Phaser.RenderTexture | Phaser.BitmapData | PIXI.Texture

This is the image or texture used by the Particle during rendering. It can be a string which is a reference to the Cache entry, or an instance of a RenderTexture or PIXI.Texture.

frame string | number

If this Particle is using part of a sprite sheet or texture atlas you can specify the exact frame to use by giving a string or numeric index.

Public Properties

alive : boolean

A useful boolean to control if the Sprite is alive or dead (in terms of your gameplay, it doesn't effect rendering). Also linked to Sprite.health and Sprite.damage.

Inherited From
Default Value
  • true
Source code: gameobjects/Sprite.js, line 111

alpha : number

The opacity of the object.

Inherited From
Source code: pixi/display/DisplayObject.js, line 65

<internal> alphaData :array

A reference to the alphaData array owned by the Emitter that emitted this Particle.

Internal:
  • This member is internal (protected) and may be modified or removed in the future.
Source code: gameobjects/Particle.js, line 51

anchor : PIXI.Point

The anchor sets the origin point of the texture. The default is 0,0 this means the texture's origin is the top left Setting than anchor to 0.5,0.5 means the textures origin is centered Setting the anchor to 1,1 would mean the textures origin points will be the bottom right corner

Inherited From
Source code: pixi/display/Sprite.js, line 22

angle : number

Indicates the rotation of the Sprite, in degrees, from its original orientation. Values from 0 to 180 represent clockwise rotation; values from 0 to -180 represent counterclockwise rotation. Values outside this range are added to or subtracted from 360 to obtain a value within the range. For example, the statement player.angle = 450 is the same as player.angle = 90. If you wish to work in radians instead of degrees use the property Sprite.rotation instead. Working in radians is also a little faster as it doesn't have to convert the angle. The angle of this Sprite in degrees.

Source code: gameobjects/Sprite.js, line 979

animations : Phaser.AnimationManager

This manages animations of the sprite. You can modify animations through it (see Phaser.AnimationManager)

Source code: gameobjects/Sprite.js, line 60

<internal> autoAlpha : boolean

If this Particle automatically changes alpha this is set to true by Particle.setAlphaData.

Internal:
  • This member is internal (protected) and may be modified or removed in the future.
Source code: gameobjects/Particle.js, line 45

autoCull : boolean

Should this Sprite be automatically culled if out of range of the camera? A culled sprite has its renderable property set to 'false'. Be advised this is quite an expensive operation, as it has to calculate the bounds of the object every frame, so only enable it if you really need it. A flag indicating if the Sprite should be automatically camera culled or not.

Inherited From
Default Value
  • false
Source code: gameobjects/Sprite.js, line 87

<internal> autoScale : boolean

If this Particle automatically scales this is set to true by Particle.setScaleData.

Internal:
  • This member is internal (protected) and may be modified or removed in the future.
Source code: gameobjects/Particle.js, line 27

blendMode : number

Inherited From
Default Value
  • PIXI.blendModes.NORMAL;
Source code: pixi/display/Sprite.js, line 68

body : Phaser.Physics.Arcade.Body | Phaser.Physics.P2.Body | Phaser.Physics.Ninja.Body | null

By default Sprites won't add themselves to any physics system and their physics body will be null. To enable them for physics you need to call game.physics.enable(sprite, system) where sprite is this object and system is the Physics system you want to use to manage this body. Once enabled you can access all physics related properties via Sprite.body.

Important: Enabling a Sprite for P2 or Ninja physics will automatically set Sprite.anchor to 0.5 so the physics body is centered on the Sprite. If you need a different result then adjust or re-create the Body shape offsets manually, and/or reset the anchor after enabling physics.

buttonMode : boolean

This is used to indicate if the displayObject should display a mouse hand cursor on rollover

Inherited From
Source code: pixi/display/DisplayObject.js, line 90

cacheAsBitmap : boolean

Set if this display object is cached as a bitmap. This basically takes a snap shot of the display object as it is at that moment. It can provide a performance benefit for complex static displayObjects. To remove simply set this property to 'null'

Inherited From
Source code: pixi/display/DisplayObject.js, line 436

cameraOffset : Phaser.Point

If this object is fixedToCamera then this stores the x/y offset that its drawn at, from the top-left of the camera view.

Inherited From
Source code: gameobjects/Sprite.js, line 153

checkWorldBounds : boolean

If true the Sprite checks if it is still within the world each frame, when it leaves the world it dispatches Sprite.events.onOutOfBounds and optionally kills the sprite (if Sprite.outOfBoundsKill is true). By default this is disabled because the Sprite has to calculate its bounds every frame to support it, and not all games need it. Enable it by setting the value to true.

exists : boolean

Sprite.exists controls if the core game loop and physics update this Sprite or not. When you set Sprite.exists to false it will remove its Body from the physics world (if it has one) and also set Sprite.visible to false. Setting Sprite.exists to true will re-add the Body to the physics world (if it has a body) and set Sprite.visible to true. If the Sprite is processed by the core game update and physics.

fixedToCamera : boolean

An Sprite that is fixed to the camera uses its x/y coordinates as offsets from the top left of the camera. These are stored in Sprite.cameraOffset. Note that the cameraOffset values are in addition to any parent in the display list. So if this Sprite was in a Group that has x: 200, then this will be added to the cameraOffset.x Set to true to fix this Sprite to the Camera at its current world coordinates.

Source code: gameobjects/Sprite.js, line 816

crop(rect, copy)

Crop allows you to crop the texture used to display this Sprite. This modifies the core Sprite texture frame, so the Sprite width/height properties will adjust accordingly.

Cropping takes place from the top-left of the Sprite and can be modified in real-time by either providing an updated rectangle object to Sprite.crop, or by modifying Sprite.cropRect (or a reference to it) and then calling Sprite.updateCrop.

The rectangle object given to this method can be either a Phaser.Rectangle or any object so long as it has public x, y, width and height properties. A reference to the rectangle is stored in Sprite.cropRect unless the copy parameter is true in which case the values are duplicated to a local object.

Parameters
Name Type Argument Default Description
rect Phaser.Rectangle

The Rectangle used during cropping. Pass null or no parameters to clear a previously set crop rectangle.

copy boolean <optional>
false

If false Sprite.cropRect will be a reference to the given rect. If true it will copy the rect values into a local Sprite.cropRect object.

kill()

Kills a Sprite. A killed Sprite has its alive, exists and visible properties all set to false. It will dispatch the onKilled event, you can listen to Sprite.events.onKilled for the signal. Note that killing a Sprite is a way for you to quickly recycle it in a Sprite pool, it doesn't free it up from memory. If you don't need this Sprite any more you should call Sprite.destroy instead.

Returns

Inherited From
Source code: gameobjects/Sprite.js, line 636

loadTexture(key, frame, stopAnimation)

Changes the Texture the Sprite is using entirely. The old texture is removed and the new one is referenced or fetched from the Cache. This causes a WebGL texture update, so use sparingly or in low-intensity portions of your game.

Parameters
Name Type Argument Default Description
key string | Phaser.RenderTexture | Phaser.BitmapData | PIXI.Texture

This is the image or texture used by the Sprite during rendering. It can be a string which is a reference to the Cache entry, or an instance of a RenderTexture, BitmapData or PIXI.Texture.

frame string | number <optional>

If this Sprite is using part of a sprite sheet or texture atlas you can specify the exact frame to use by giving a string or numeric index.

overlap(displayObject) → {boolean}

Checks to see if the bounds of this Sprite overlaps with the bounds of the given Display Object, which can be a Sprite, Image, TileSprite or anything that extends those such as a Button. This check ignores the Sprites hitArea property and runs a Sprite.getBounds comparison on both objects to determine the result. Therefore it's relatively expensive to use in large quantities (i.e. with lots of Sprites at a high frequency), but should be fine for low-volume testing where physics isn't required.

Parameters
Name Type Description
displayObject Phaser.Sprite | Phaser.Image | Phaser.TileSprite | Phaser.Button | PIXI.DisplayObject

The display object to check against.

Returns
boolean -

True if the bounds of this Sprite intersects at any point with the bounds of the given display object.

Source code: gameobjects/Particle.js, line 126

setScaleMinMax(minX, minY, maxX, maxY)

Sets the scaleMin and scaleMax values. These values are used to limit how far this Sprite will scale based on its parent. For example if this Sprite has a minScale value of 1 and its parent has a scale value of 0.5, the 0.5 will be ignored and the scale value of 1 will be used. By using these values you can carefully control how Sprites deal with responsive scaling.

If only one parameter is given then that value will be used for both scaleMin and scaleMax: setScaleMinMax(1) = scaleMin.x, scaleMin.y, scaleMax.x and scaleMax.y all = 1

If only two parameters are given the first is set as scaleMin.x and y and the second as scaleMax.x and y: setScaleMinMax(0.5, 2) = scaleMin.x and y = 0.5 and scaleMax.x and y = 2

If you wish to set scaleMin with different values for x and y then either modify Sprite.scaleMin directly, or pass null for the maxX and maxY parameters.

Call setScaleMinMax(null) to clear both the scaleMin and scaleMax values.

Parameters

minX number | null

The minimum horizontal scale value this Sprite can scale down to.

minY number | null

The minimum vertical scale value this Sprite can scale down to.

maxX number | null

The maximum horizontal scale value this Sprite can scale up to.

maxY number | null

The maximum vertical scale value this Sprite can scale up to.
