ct

ct represents the drawing canvas itself, extended with modules and core libraries. But let's talk a bit about how it all works.

Event sequence

These events are always executed in the following order:

  1. oncreate event, which is emitted when a user starts a game or navigates to a new room;
  2. main game loop occurs:
    1. onstep event is emitted for all the copies in the room;
    2. onstep event for current room is called;
    3. ondestroy is called for all the copies marked to be killed;
    4. all the copies are reordered, the canvas is cleaned here;
    5. ondraw is called for all the copies;
    6. ondraw is called for a room;
    7. input events are cleared. Waiting for a new game loop iteration.
  3. When a user moves to a new room, an ondestroy event is called for current (previous) room.
