Class: Sprite

Phaser.Physics.Arcade. Sprite

An Arcade Physics Sprite is a Sprite with an Arcade Physics body and related components. The body can be dynamic or static.

The main difference between an Arcade Sprite and an Arcade Image is that you cannot animate an Arcade Image. If you do not require animation then you can safely use Arcade Images instead of Arcade Sprites.

  • 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.

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.

  • 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.

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 move 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.

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:

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?

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.)

  • 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:

setCrop( [x] [, y] [, width] [, height])

Applies a crop to a texture based Game Object, such as a Sprite or Image.

The crop is a rectangle that limits the area of the texture frame that is visible during rendering.

Cropping a Game Object does not change its size, dimensions, physics body or hit area, it just changes what is shown when rendered.

The crop coordinates are relative to the texture frame, not the Game Object, meaning 0 x 0 is the top-left.

Therefore, if you had a Game Object that had an 800x600 sized texture, and you wanted to show only the left half of it, you could call setCrop(0, 0, 400, 600).

It is also scaled to match the Game Object scale automatically. Therefore a crop rect of 100x50 would crop an area of 200x100 when applied to a Game Object that had a scale factor of 2.

You can either pass in numeric values directly, or you can provide a single Rectangle object as the first argument.

Call this method with no arguments at all to reset the crop, or toggle the property isCropped to false.

You should do this if the crop rectangle becomes the same size as the frame itself, as it will allow the renderer to skip several internal calculations.

Parameters:
Name Type Argument Description
x number | Phaser.Geom.Rectangle <optional>

The x coordinate to start the crop from. Or a Phaser.Geom.Rectangle object, in which case the rest of the arguments are ignored.

y number <optional>

The y coordinate to start the crop from.

width number <optional>

The width of the crop rectangle in pixels.

height number <optional>

The height of the crop rectangle in pixels.

Inherited From:
Source: src/gameobjects/components/TextureCrop.js (Line 48)
Returns:

This Game Object instance.

Type
Phaser.Physics.Arcade.Sprite

setDamping(value)

If this Body is using drag for deceleration this function controls how the drag is applied. If set to true drag will use a damping effect rather than a linear approach. If you are creating a game where the Body moves freely at any angle (i.e. like the way the ship moves in the game Asteroids) then you will get a far smoother and more visually correct deceleration by using damping, avoiding the axis-drift that is prone with linear deceleration.

If you enable this property then you should use far smaller drag values than with linear, as they are used as a multiplier on the velocity. Values such as 0.95 will give a nice slow deceleration, where-as smaller values, such as 0.5 will stop an object almost immediately.

Parameters:
Name Type Description
value boolean

true to use damping for deceleration, or false to use linear deceleration.

Since: 3.10.0
Inherited From:
Source: src/physics/arcade/components/Drag.js (Line 100)
Returns:

This Game Object.

Type
Phaser.Physics.Arcade.Sprite

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 Description
key string | object

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

data *

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

setDrag(x [, y])

Sets the body's horizontal and vertical drag. If the vertical drag value is not provided, the vertical drag is set to the same value as the horizontal drag.

Drag can be considered as a form of deceleration that will return the velocity of a body back to zero over time. It is the absolute loss of velocity due to movement, in pixels per second squared. The x and y components are applied separately.

When useDamping is true, this is 1 minus the damping factor. A value of 1 means the Body loses no velocity. A value of 0.95 means the Body loses 5% of its velocity per step. A value of 0.5 means the Body loses 50% of its velocity per step.

Drag is applied only when acceleration is zero.

Parameters:
Name Type Argument Default Description
x number

The amount of horizontal drag to apply.

y number <optional>

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

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.

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:

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.

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:

setTint( [topLeft] [, topRight] [, bottomLeft] [, bottomRight])

Sets an additive tint on this Game Object.

The tint works by taking the pixel color values from the Game Objects texture, and then multiplying it by the color value of the tint. You can provide either one color value, in which case the whole Game Object will be tinted in that color. Or you can provide a color per corner. The colors are blended together across the extent of the Game Object.

To modify the tint color once set, either call this method again with new values or use the tint property to set all colors at once. Or, use the properties tintTopLeft, tintTopRight,tintBottomLeftandtintBottomRight` to set the corner color values independently.

To remove a tint call clearTint.

To swap this from being an additive tint to a fill based tint set the property tintFill to true.

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

The tint being applied to the top-left of the Game Object. If no other values are given this value is applied evenly, tinting the whole Game Object.

topRight integer <optional>

setTintFill( [topLeft] [, topRight] [, bottomLeft] [, bottomRight])

Sets a fill-based tint on this Game Object.

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. You can provide either one color value, in which case the whole Game Object will be rendered in that color. Or you can provide a color per corner. The colors are blended together across the extent of the Game Object.

To modify the tint color once set, either call this method again with new values or use the tint property to set all colors at once. Or, use the properties tintTopLeft, tintTopRight,tintBottomLeftandtintBottomRight` to set the corner color values independently.

To remove a tint call clearTint.

To swap this from being a fill-tint to an additive tint set the property tintFill to false.

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

The tint being applied to the top-left of the Game Object. If not other values are given this value is applied evenly, tinting the whole Game Object.

topRight integer <optional>
