I'm trying to use a projectile helper but it doesn't come out when the char does the move.

Here's the code of the special:

Here's the helper

edit: Now the hitsparks I added won't show up either.

[State 1605, End]
type = DestroySelf
trigger1 = FrontEdgeDist < -100 || BackEdgeDist < -100

Isn't this making the helper destroy itself too soon? idk, look suspicious..

What trigger would I replace it with for that DestroySelf?

Try messing with > and <, and using positive and negative values, or just null/remove the destroyself only for a test and re-add it after, but this is just a guess. Looking at your code I can't think of anything wrong. What could also be causing the helper to not spawn is the character changing state before it reaches the elem 4 or not having a 4th elem in the anim, but looks like isn't the case here.

No, that's not it, whatever I change it to, the helper still doesn't show

Id take out the backedgedist to be sure. The front edgedist is fine but -100 encompasses quite a lot of the screen f9r backedge.

  • Shame on you!

so if the helper NEVER shows up, change it's state to 200 so it spawns a working state. 
Spoiler, click to toggle visibilty
Test that, see if you get a little mini-me to pop out. If you don't get the mini-me, you know it's what spawns the helper. If you do get the mini-me, ctrl+; to comment out your changestates and destroystates.

Are you getting any debug flood? Use CTRL+D and CTRL+C to see if the helper is spawning but using a bad animation or something. It might be there, but you just can't see it.

Give helper a working anim too. You may have stuffed that up.
