Class: Rope

Phaser.GameObjects. Rope

A Rope Game Object.

The Rope object is WebGL only and does not have a Canvas counterpart.

A Rope is a special kind of Game Object that has a texture that repeats along its entire length. Unlike a Sprite, it isn't restricted to using just a quad and can have as many vertices as you define when creating it. The vertices can be arranged in a horizontal or vertical strip and have their own color and alpha values as well.

A Ropes origin is always 0.5 x 0.5 and cannot be changed.


new Rope(scene [, x] [, y] [, texture] [, frame] [, points] [, horizontal] [, colors] [, alphas])

  • number
Since: 3.0.0
Inherited From:
Source: src/gameobjects/components/AlphaSingle.js (Line 68)

alphas :Float32Array

An array containing the alpha data for this Rope.

Alphas should be given as float values, such as 0.5. You should provide two alpha values for every point in the Rope, one for the top and one for the bottom of each quad.

You can modify the contents of this array directly in real-time, however, should you need to change the size of the array, then you should use the setAlphas method instead.

Type:
  • Float32Array
Since: 3.23.0
Source: src/gameobjects/rope/Rope.js (Line 149)

angle :integer

The angle of this Game Object as expressed in degrees.

Phaser uses a right-hand clockwise rotation system, where 0 is right, 90 is down, 180/-180 is left and -90 is up.

If you prefer to work in radians, see the rotation property instead.

Type:

blendMode :Phaser.BlendModes|string

Sets the Blend Mode being used by this Game Object.

This can be a const, such as Phaser.BlendModes.SCREEN, or an integer, such as 4 (for Overlay)

Under WebGL only the following Blend Modes are available:

  • ADD
  • MULTIPLY
  • SCREEN
  • ERASE

Canvas has more available depending on browser support.

You can also create your own custom Blend Modes in WebGL.

Blend modes have different effects under Canvas and WebGL, and from browser to browser, depending on support. Blend Modes also cause a WebGL batch flush should it encounter a new blend mode. For these reasons try to be careful about the construction of your Scene and the frequency of which blend modes are used.

debugCallback :function

You can optionally choose to render the vertices of this Rope to a Graphics instance.

Achieve this by setting the debugCallback and the debugGraphic properties.

You can do this in a single call via the Rope.setDebug method, which will use the built-in debug function. You can also set it to your own callback. The callback will be invoked once per render and sent the following parameters:

debugCallback(src, meshLength, verts)

src is the Rope instance being debugged. meshLength is the number of mesh vertices in total. verts is an array of the translated vertex coordinates.

To disable rendering, set this property back to null.

Type:
  • function
Since: 3.23.0
Source: src/gameobjects/rope/Rope.js (Line 240)

debugGraphic :Phaser.GameObjects.Graphics

Inherited From:
Default Value:
  • null
Source: src/gameobjects/components/Pipeline.js (Line 17)

depth :number

The depth of this Game Object within the Scene.

The depth is also known as the 'z-index' in some environments, and allows you to change the rendering order of Game Objects, without actually moving their position in the display list.

The depth starts from zero (the default value) and increases from that point. A Game Object with a higher depth value will always render in front of one with a lower value.

Setting the depth will queue a depth sort event within the Scene.

Type:
  • number
Since: 3.0.0
Inherited From:

dirty :boolean

If the Rope is marked as dirty it will automatically recalculate its vertices the next time it renders. You can also force this by calling updateVertices.

Type:
  • boolean
Since: 3.23.0
Source: src/gameobjects/rope/Rope.js (Line 177)

displayHeight :number

The displayed height of this Game Object.

This value takes into account the scale factor.

Since: 3.23.0
Overrides:
Default Value:
  • false
Source: src/gameobjects/rope/Rope.js (Line 1049)

flipY :boolean

The vertically flipped state of the Game Object.

A Game Object that is flipped vertically will render inversed on the vertical axis (i.e. upside down) Flipping always takes place from the middle of the texture and does not impact the scale value. If this Game Object has a physics body, it will not change the body. This is a rendering toggle only.

Type:

Type:
  • boolean
Since: 3.23.0
Source: src/gameobjects/rope/Rope.js (Line 187)

ignoreDestroy :boolean

This Game Object will ignore all calls made to its destroy method if this flag is set to true. This includes calls that may come from a Group, Container or the Scene itself. While it allows you to persist a Game Object across Scenes, please understand you are entirely responsible for managing references to and from this Game Object.

Default Value:
  • null
Source: src/gameobjects/components/Pipeline.js (Line 28)

points :Array.<Phaser.Types.Math.Vector2Like>

An array containing the points data for this Rope.

Each point should be given as a Vector2Like object (i.e. a Vector2, Geom.Point or object with public x/y properties).

The point coordinates are given in local space, where 0 x 0 is the start of the Rope strip.

You can modify the contents of this array directly in real-time to create interesting effects. If you do so, be sure to call setDirty after modifying this array, so that the vertices data is updated before the next render. Alternatively, you can use the setPoints method instead.

Should you need to change the size of this array, then you should always use the setPoints method.

Type:
Since: 3.23.0
Source: src/gameobjects/rope/Rope.js (Line 93)

renderFlags :integer

The flags that are compared against RENDER_MASK to determine if this Game Object will render or not. The bits are 0001 | 0010 | 0100 | 1000 set by the components Visible, Alpha, Transform and Texture respectively. If those components are not used by your custom class then you can use this bitmask as you wish.

rotation :number

The angle of this Game Object in radians.

Phaser uses a right-hand clockwise rotation system, where 0 is right, PI/2 is down, +-PI is left and -PI/2 is up.

If you prefer to work in degrees, see the angle property instead.

Type:
  • number
Since: 3.0.0
Inherited From:
Default Value:
  • 1
Source: src/gameobjects/components/Transform.js (Line 225)

scale :number

This is a special setter that allows you to set both the horizontal and vertical scale of this Game Object to the same value, at the same time. When reading this value the result returned is (scaleX + scaleY) / 2.

Use of this property implies you wish the horizontal and vertical scales to be equal to each other. If this isn't the case, use the scaleX or scaleY properties instead.

Type:
  • number
Since: 3.18.0
Inherited From:
Default Value:
  • 1
Source: src/gameobjects/components/Transform.js (Line 100)

scaleX :number

Source: src/gameobjects/components/Transform.js (Line 167)

<protected> scene :Phaser.Scene

The Scene to which this Game Object belongs. Game Objects can only belong to one Scene.

Type:
Since: 3.0.0
Inherited From:
Source: src/gameobjects/GameObject.js (Line 38)

scrollFactorX :number

The horizontal scroll factor of this Game Object.

The scroll factor controls the influence of the movement of a Camera upon this Game Object.

When a camera scrolls it will change the location at which this Game Object is rendered on-screen. It does not change the Game Objects actual position values.

A value of 1 means it will move exactly in sync with a camera. A value of 0 means it will not move at all, even if the camera moves. Other values control the degree to which the camera movement is mapped to this Game Object.

Please be aware that scroll factor values other than 1 are not taken in to consideration when calculating physics collisions. Bodies always collide based on their world position, but changing the scroll factor is a visual adjustment to where the textures are rendered, which can offset them from physics bodies if not accounted for in your code.

Type:
  • number
Since: 3.0.0
Inherited From:
Default Value:
  • 1
Source: src/gameobjects/components/ScrollFactor.js (Line 16)

scrollFactorY :number

The vertical scroll factor of this Game Object.

The scroll factor controls the influence of the movement of a Camera upon this Game Object.

When a camera scrolls it will change the location at which this Game Object is rendered on-screen. It does not change the Game Objects actual position values.

A value of 1 means it will move exactly in sync with a camera. A value of 0 means it will not move at all, even if the camera moves. Other values control the degree to which the camera movement is mapped to this Game Object.

Please be aware that scroll factor values other than 1 are not taken in to consideration when calculating physics collisions.

state :integer|string

The current state of this Game Object.

Phaser itself will never modify this value, although plugins may do so.

Use this property to track the state of a Game Object during its lifetime. For example, it could change from a state of 'moving', to 'attacking', to 'dead'. The state value should be an integer (ideally mapped to a constant in your game code), or a string. These are recommended to keep it light and simple, with fast comparisons. If you need to store complex data about your Game Object, look at using the Data Component instead.

Type:
  • integer | string

createBitmapMask( [renderable])

Creates and returns a Bitmap Mask. This mask can be used by any Game Object, including this one.

To create the mask you need to pass in a reference to a renderable Game Object. A renderable Game Object is one that uses a texture to render with, such as an Image, Sprite, Render Texture or BitmapText.

If you do not provide a renderable object, and this Game Object has a texture, it will use itself as the object. This means you can call this method to create a Bitmap Mask from any renderable Game Object.

Parameters:
Name Type Argument Description
renderable Phaser.GameObjects.GameObject <optional>

A renderable Game Object that uses a texture, such as a Sprite.

Since: 3.6.2
Inherited From:
Source: src/gameobjects/components/Mask.js (Line 80)
Returns:

This Bitmap Mask that was created.

Type
Phaser.Display.Masks.BitmapMask

createGeometryMask( [graphics])

Creates and returns a Geometry Mask. This mask can be used by any Game Object, including this one.

To create the mask you need to pass in a reference to a Graphics Game Object.

If you do not provide a graphics object, and this Game Object is an instance of a Graphics object, then it will use itself to create the mask.

This means you can call this method to create a Geometry Mask from any Graphics Game Object.

Parameters:
Name Type Argument Description
graphics Phaser.GameObjects.Graphics <optional>

A Graphics Game Object. The geometry within it will be used as the mask.

Since: 3.6.2
Inherited From:

Returns:

This Geometry Mask that was created.

Type
Phaser.Display.Masks.GeometryMask

destroy( [fromScene])

Destroys this Game Object removing it from the Display List and Update List and severing all ties to parent resources.

Also removes itself from the Input Manager and Physics Manager if previously enabled.

Use this to remove a Game Object from your game if you don't ever plan to use it again. As long as no reference to it exists within your own code it should become free for garbage collection by the browser.

If you just want to temporarily disable an object then look at using the Game Object Pool instead of destroying it, as destroyed objects cannot be resurrected.

Parameters:
Name Type Argument Default Description
fromScene boolean <optional>
false

Is this Game Object being destroyed as the result of a Scene shutdown?

Since: 3.0.0
Inherited From:
Source: src/gameobjects/GameObject.js (Line 604)
Fires:

disableInteractive()

If this Game Object has previously been enabled for input, this will disable it.

An object that is disabled for input stops processing or being considered for input events, but can be turned back on again at any time by simply calling setInteractive() with no arguments provided.

If want to completely remove interaction from this Game Object then use removeInteractive instead.

Since: 3.7.0
Inherited From:
Source: src/gameobjects/GameObject.js (Line 461)

getData(key)

Retrieves the value for the given key in this Game Objects Data Manager, or undefined if it doesn't exist.

You can also access values via the values object. For example, if you had a key called gold you can do either:

sprite.getData('gold');

Or access the value directly:

sprite.data.values.gold;

You can also pass in an array of keys, in which case an array of values will be returned:

sprite.getData([ 'gold', 'armor', 'health' ]);

This approach is useful for destructuring arrays in ES6.

Parameters:

removeInteractive()

If this Game Object has previously been enabled for input, this will queue it for removal, causing it to no longer be interactive. The removal happens on the next game step, it is not immediate.

The Interactive Object that was assigned to this Game Object will be destroyed, removed from the Input Manager and cleared from this Game Object.

If you wish to re-enable this Game Object at a later date you will need to re-create its InteractiveObject by calling setInteractive again.

If you wish to only temporarily stop an object from receiving input then use disableInteractive instead, as that toggles the interactive state, where-as this erases it completely.

If you wish to resize a hit area, don't remove and then set it as being interactive. Instead, access the hitarea object directly and resize the shape being used. I.e.: sprite.input.hitArea.setSize(width, height) (assuming the shape is a Rectangle, which it is by default.)

setAlpha( [value])

Set the Alpha level of this Game Object. The alpha controls the opacity of the Game Object as it renders. Alpha values are provided as a float between 0, fully transparent, and 1, fully opaque.

Parameters:
Name Type Argument Default Description
value number <optional>
1

The alpha value applied across the whole Game Object.

Since: 3.0.0
Inherited From:
Source: src/gameobjects/components/AlphaSingle.js (Line 48)
Returns:

Type
Phaser.GameObjects.Rope

setAlphas( [alphas] [, bottomAlpha])

Set the alpha values used by the Rope during rendering.

You can provide the values in a number of ways:

  1. One single numeric value: setAlphas(0.5) - This will set a single alpha for the whole Rope.
  2. Two numeric value: setAlphas(1, 0.5) - This will set a 'top' and 'bottom' alpha value across the whole Rope.
  3. An array of values: setAlphas([ 1, 0.5, 0.2 ])

If you provide an array of values and the array has exactly the same number of values as points in the Rope, it will use each alpha value per rope segment.

If the provided array has a different number of values than points then it will use the values in order, from the first Rope segment and on, until it runs out of values. This allows you to control the alpha values at all vertices in the Rope.

Note this method is called setAlphas (plural) and not setAlpha.

Parameters:
Name Type Argument Description
alphas number | Array.<number> <optional>

Either a single alpha value, or an array of values. If nothing is provided alpha is reset to 1.

bottomAlpha number <optional>

An optional bottom alpha value. See the method description for details.

Type
Phaser.GameObjects.Rope

setBlendMode(value)

Sets the Blend Mode being used by this Game Object.

This can be a const, such as Phaser.BlendModes.SCREEN, or an integer, such as 4 (for Overlay)

Under WebGL only the following Blend Modes are available:

  • ADD
  • MULTIPLY
  • SCREEN
  • ERASE (only works when rendering to a framebuffer, like a Render Texture)

Canvas has more available depending on browser support.

You can also create your own custom Blend Modes in WebGL.

Blend modes have different effects under Canvas and WebGL, and from browser to browser, depending on support. Blend Modes also cause a WebGL batch flush should it encounter a new blend mode. For these reasons try to be careful about the construction of your Scene and the frequency in which blend modes are used.

Parameters:
Name Type Description
value string | Phaser.BlendModes

The BlendMode value. Either a string or a CONST.

Since: 3.0.0
Inherited From:
Source: src/gameobjects/components/BlendMode.js (Line 79)
Returns:

This Game Object instance.

Type
Phaser.GameObjects.Rope

setColors( [colors])

Set the color values used by the Rope during rendering.

Colors are used to control the level of tint applied across the Rope texture.

You can provide the values in a number of ways:

  • One single numeric value: setColors(0xff0000) - This will set a single color tint for the whole Rope.
  • An array of values: setColors([ 0xff0000, 0x00ff00, 0x0000ff ])

If you provide an array of values and the array has exactly the same number of values as points in the Rope, it will use each color per rope segment.

If the provided array has a different number of values than points then it will use the values in order, from the first Rope segment and on, until it runs out of values. This allows you to control the color values at all vertices in the Rope.

Parameters:
Name Type Argument Description
colors number | Array.<number> <optional>

Either a single color value, or an array of values. If nothing is provided color is reset to 0xffffff.

Since: 3.23.0

Type
Phaser.GameObjects.Rope

setData(key [, data])

Allows you to store a key value pair within this Game Objects Data Manager.

If the Game Object has not been enabled for data (via setDataEnabled) then it will be enabled before setting the value.

If the key doesn't already exist in the Data Manager then it is created.

sprite.setData('name', 'Red Gem Stone');

You can also pass in an object of key value pairs as the first argument:

sprite.setData({ name: 'Red Gem Stone', level: 2, owner: 'Link', gold: 50 });

To get a value back again you can call getData:

sprite.getData('gold');

Or you can access the value directly via the values property, where it works like any other variable:

sprite.data.values.gold += 50;

When the value is first set, a setdata event is emitted from this Game Object.

If the key already exists, a changedata event is emitted instead, along an event named after the key. For example, if you updated an existing key called PlayerLives then it would emit the event changedata-PlayerLives. These events will be emitted regardless if you use this method to set the value, or the direct values setter.

Please note that the data keys are case-sensitive and must be valid JavaScript Object property strings. This means the keys gold and Gold are treated as two unique values within the Data Manager.

Parameters:
Name Type Argument Description
key string | object

The key to set the value for. Or an object of key value pairs. If an object the data argument is ignored.

data * <optional>

The value to set for the given key. If an object is provided as the key this argument is ignored.

setDebug( [graphic] [, callback])

This method enables rendering of the Rope vertices to the given Graphics instance.

If you enable this feature, you must call Graphics.clear() in your Scene update, otherwise the Graphics instance will fill-in with draw calls. This is not done automatically to allow for you to debug render multiple Rope objects to a single Graphics instance.

The Rope class has a built-in debug rendering callback Rope.renderDebugVerts, however you can also provide your own callback to be used instead. Do this by setting the callback parameter.

The callback is invoked once per render and sent the following parameters:

callback(src, meshLength, verts)

src is the Rope instance being debugged. meshLength is the number of mesh vertices in total. verts is an array of the translated vertex coordinates.

If using your own callback you do not have to provide a Graphics instance to this method.

To disable debug rendering, to either your own callback or the built-in one, call this method with no arguments.

Parameters:
Name Type Argument Description
graphic Phaser.GameObjects.Graphics <optional>

The Graphic instance to render to if using the built-in callback.

callback function <optional>

The callback to invoke during debug render. Leave as undefined to use the built-in callback.

setDepth(value)

The depth of this Game Object within the Scene.

The depth is also known as the 'z-index' in some environments, and allows you to change the rendering order of Game Objects, without actually moving their position in the display list.

The depth starts from zero (the default value) and increases from that point. A Game Object with a higher depth value will always render in front of one with a lower value.

Setting the depth will queue a depth sort event within the Scene.

Parameters:
Name Type Description
value integer

setFlip(x, y)

Sets the horizontal and vertical flipped state of this Game Object.

A Game Object that is flipped will render inversed on the flipped axis. Flipping always takes place from the middle of the texture and does not impact the scale value. If this Game Object has a physics body, it will not change the body. This is a rendering toggle only.

Parameters:

setInteractive( [shape] [, callback] [, dropZone])

Pass this Game Object to the Input Manager to enable it for Input.

Input works by using hit areas, these are nearly always geometric shapes, such as rectangles or circles, that act as the hit area for the Game Object. However, you can provide your own hit area shape and callback, should you wish to handle some more advanced input detection.

If no arguments are provided it will try and create a rectangle hit area based on the texture frame the Game Object is using. If this isn't a texture-bound object, such as a Graphics or BitmapText object, this will fail, and you'll need to provide a specific shape for it to use.

You can also provide an Input Configuration Object as the only argument to this method.

Parameters:
Name Type Argument Default Description
shape Phaser.Types.Input.InputConfiguration | any <optional>

Either an input configuration object, or a geometric shape that defines the hit area for the Game Object. If not specified a Rectangle will be used.

callback Phaser.Types.Input.HitAreaCallback <optional>

A callback to be invoked when the Game Object is interacted with. If you provide a shape you must also provide a callback.

dropZone boolean <optional>
false

Should this Game Object be treated as a drop zone target?

setMask(mask)

Sets the mask that this Game Object will use to render with.

The mask must have been previously created and can be either a GeometryMask or a BitmapMask. Note: Bitmap Masks only work on WebGL. Geometry Masks work on both WebGL and Canvas.

If a mask is already set on this Game Object it will be immediately replaced.

Masks are positioned in global space and are not relative to the Game Object to which they are applied. The reason for this is that multiple Game Objects can all share the same mask.

Masks have no impact on physics or input detection. They are purely a rendering component that allows you to limit what is visible during the render pass.

Parameters:
Name Type Description
mask Phaser.Display.Masks.BitmapMask | Phaser.Display.Masks.GeometryMask

The mask this Game Object will use when rendering.

setPoints( [points] [, colors] [, alphas])

Sets the points used by this Rope.

The points should be provided as an array of Vector2, or vector2-like objects (i.e. those with public x/y properties).

Each point corresponds to one segment of the Rope. The more points in the array, the more segments the rope has.

Point coordinates are given in local-space, not world-space, and are directly related to the size of the texture this Rope object is using.

For example, a Rope using a 512 px wide texture, split into 4 segments (128px each) would use the following points:

rope.setPoints([
  { x: 0, y: 0 },
  { x: 128, y: 0 },
  { x: 256, y: 0 },
  { x: 384, y: 0 }
]);

Or, you can provide an integer to do the same thing:

rope.setPoints(4);

Which will divide the Rope into 4 equally sized segments based on the frame width.

Note that calling this method with a different number of points than the Rope has currently will reset the color and alpha values, unless you provide them as arguments to this method.

Parameters:
Name Type Argument Default Description
points integer | Array.<Phaser.Types.Math.Vector2Like> <optional>
2

An array containing the vertices data for this Rope, or a number that indicates how many segments to split the texture frame into. If none is provided a simple quad is created.

setScrollFactor(x [, y])

Sets the scroll factor of this Game Object.

The scroll factor controls the influence of the movement of a Camera upon this Game Object.

When a camera scrolls it will change the location at which this Game Object is rendered on-screen. It does not change the Game Objects actual position values.

A value of 1 means it will move exactly in sync with a camera. A value of 0 means it will not move at all, even if the camera moves. Other values control the degree to which the camera movement is mapped to this Game Object.

Please be aware that scroll factor values other than 1 are not taken in to consideration when calculating physics collisions. Bodies always collide based on their world position, but changing the scroll factor is a visual adjustment to where the textures are rendered, which can offset them from physics bodies if not accounted for in your code.

Parameters:
Name Type Argument Default Description
x number

The horizontal scroll factor of this Game Object.

y number <optional>
x

The vertical scroll factor of this Game Object. If not set it will use the x value.

setSize(width, height)

Sets the internal size of this Game Object, as used for frame or physics body creation.

This will not change the size that the Game Object is rendered in-game. For that you need to either set the scale of the Game Object (setScale) or call the setDisplaySize method, which is the same thing as changing the scale but allows you to do so by giving pixel values.

If you have enabled this Game Object for input, changing the size will not change the size of the hit area. To do this you should adjust the input.hitArea object directly.

Parameters:
Name Type Description
width number

height number

The height of this Game Object.

Since: 3.0.0
Inherited From:
Source: src/gameobjects/components/Size.js (Line 131)
Returns:

This Game Object instance.

Type
Phaser.GameObjects.Rope

setSizeToFrame(frame)

Sets the size of this Game Object to be that of the given Frame.

This will not change the size that the Game Object is rendered in-game. For that you need to either set the scale of the Game Object (setScale) or call the setDisplaySize method, which is the same thing as changing the scale but allows you to do so by giving pixel values.

If you have enabled this Game Object for input, changing the size will not change the size of the hit area. To do this you should adjust the input.hitArea object directly.

Parameters:
Name Type Description
frame Phaser.Textures.Frame

The frame to base the size of this Game Object on.

Since: 3.0.0
Inherited From:
Source: src/gameobjects/components/Size.js (Line 103)
Returns:

This Game Object instance.

Type
Phaser.GameObjects.Rope

setState(value)

Sets the current state of this Game Object.

Phaser itself will never modify the State of a Game Object, although plugins may do so.

For example, a Game Object could change from a state of 'moving', to 'attacking', to 'dead'. The state value should typically be an integer (ideally mapped to a constant in your game code), but could also be a string. It is recommended to keep it light and simple. If you need to store complex data about your Game Object, look at using the Data Component instead.

Parameters:
Name Type Description
value integer | string

The state of the Game Object.

Since: 3.16.0
Inherited From:
Source: src/gameobjects/GameObject.js (Line 231)
Returns:

This GameObject.

Type
Phaser.GameObjects.Rope

setTexture(key [, frame])

Sets the texture and frame this Game Object will use to render with.

Textures are referenced by their string-based keys, as stored in the Texture Manager.

Parameters:
Name Type Argument Description
key string | Phaser.Textures.Texture

The key of the texture to be used, as stored in the Texture Manager, or a Texture instance.

frame string | integer <optional>

The name or index of the frame within the Texture.

Since: 3.0.0
Inherited From:
Source: src/gameobjects/components/Texture.js (Line 47)
Returns:

This Game Object instance.

Type
Phaser.GameObjects.Rope

setTintFill( [value])

Sets the tint fill mode.

Mode 0 is an additive tint, the default, which blends the vertices colors with the texture. This mode respects the texture alpha.

Mode 1 is a fill tint. Unlike an additive tint, a fill-tint literally replaces the pixel colors from the texture with those in the tint. You can use this for effects such as making a player flash 'white' if hit by something. This mode respects the texture alpha.

Mode 2 is a complete tint. The texture colors and alpha are replaced entirely by the vertices colors.

See the setColors method for details of how to color each of the vertices.

Parameters:
Name Type Argument Default Description
value integer <optional>
0

Set to 0 for an Additive tint, 1 for a fill tint with alpha, or 2 for a fill tint without alpha.

setVertical( [points] [, colors] [, alphas])

Sets the alignment of the points in this Rope to be vertical, in a column format.

Calling this method will reset this Rope. The current points, vertices, colors and alpha values will be reset to thoes values given as parameters.

Parameters:
Name Type Argument Description
points integer | Array.<Phaser.Types.Math.Vector2Like> <optional>

An array containing the vertices data for this Rope, or a number that indicates how many segments to split the texture frame into. If none is provided the current points length is used.

colors number | Array.<number> <optional>

Either a single color value, or an array of values.

alphas number | Array.<number> <optional>

Either a single alpha value, or an array of values.
