Introducing the Physics behavior! Powered by Box2DWeb, this allows you to simulate objects realistically in Construct 2-made HTML5 games. Here's a simple demo. It also supports hinge joints, which allows for other cool stuff like ragdolls. Please note the Physics behavior should be considered beta - there may be problems with it. Don't forget to report any bugs!

Physics integrates really nicely with the new collision system - you have the option of using your collision polygon from the image editor as the physics collision mask, or you can override it as a circle (for rolling objects) or simple bounding box. Also, the hinge features use image points to allow you to attach things wherever you like on your object.

Check the Examples directory (linked to in the welcome screen) for five new Physics examples: basics, distance joint, ragdoll, revolute joint and vehicle. Play around and see what you can do with Physics! Have fun!

Changelog

Feature

Physics behavior. Can use collision polygon for physics collisions.

Add

You can now import GameMaker rooms and objects from .gmx projects. See Importing GameMaker rooms and objects to Construct 2 free edition.

Change

Installer: there is now an option to specify whether you want to install the 32-bit or 64-bit versions of Construct 2, or auto-detect (the default). This might be useful if you have a 64-bit computer but want to install the 32-bit version to a USB drive to take to another 32-bit computer.

Change

Improved error message if you run the minifier on export without Java installed.

Change

Removed 'C' keyboard shortcut for centering hotspot since it intefered with renaming image points. You can use the right click menu quick assign instead.

Bug Fix

Mouse: did not detect clicks/cursor over objects with a bounding box

Bug Fix

'Set position to another object' with an image point did not work.
