|dir||The direction to move in.|
|maxdist||The maximum distance the object can travel (-1 or 0 a default value of 1000 pixels).|
With this function you can tell an instance to move out of a
collision in any direction and any number of pixels each step, with
a value of -1 or 0 for the maxdist being a default 1000px, ie:
GameMaker: Studio will move the instance continually up 1000
pixels until it is out of collision.
if place_meeting(x, y, all)
The above code will move the instance up 1 pixel each step that it is in collision with any other instance.
