Is it possible to "code" A star (A*) algorithm in Construct 2? I know there is PathFinder behavior, but i'd like to kode it in construct events to show in school that contsruct also can do it (not only programming language).
I agree with Ash but if it's just to show off a bit, you can try adaptating r0j0's cap into a capx (you need to download construct classic) http://22.214.171.124/scirra/forum/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=8368&p=63821&hilit=pathfinding I think it's pretty doable, all functionalities you need are in c2 already (except for the foreach ordered... But it's just to set random start and goal on start of layout)Yann2011-12-30 15:23:03
Here is an example for grid based astar pathfinding. It's useful for a visualization of the algorithm, but plugins are better suited for something like this. As it is it's a bit laborious to re-implement it for every project. http://dl.dropbox.com/u/5426011/examples%208/astar.capxR0J0hound2011-12-31 21:21:37
