Was looking to do something like that to you type in catapult in the tutorials there's not even one reference to it you look for the examples and no file has catapult on it. So for the people who are sending us off on wild goose chases please keep your comments to yourself we are trying to learn here ! or if it's a link we can't find post it Thanks

The example built into C2 is exactly like angry birds...

I don't see the problem using that, as was suggested.

The forums are to help creators who need help, not create the needy...
As long as I can move left, right and fire, I'm Happy...

First of all, if you want help fast and useful, you should explain more what you need, and never ask someone else to do it for you. The point of the "How do I" forum is to learn by asking others for tips, not for the complete job.

There is no example called "catapult", but there is a lot of physics examples that could help you too.

That said, let's just think about what is a catapult and how to do it.
There are 2 part : the catapult and the boulder. Catapult is a simple sprite, playing an animation when you click the "lanch" button, or whatever the event is in your case. The boulder is a sprite too, with physics. When the catapult lanches it, just apply a force on the boulder, depending on the settings you want for the catapult.

Here is the simpliest capx I can think of to demonstrate this.

The manual states:

"There are many examples in Construct 2's Examples directory. Click Browse all examples to see them. There are over 40 which go through things like making a simple platformer and physics demos. It's highly recommended to look at all the examples. Commonly asked questions like "How do I set up custom controls?" have examples showing how it's done in the Examples folder."

If everyone did this, they would then have a far greater understanding of the mechanics of C2, and could then tailor their questions more specifically, rather than asking for someone to do it for them.
If your vision so exceeds your ability, then look to something closer.

This is what us newbies are talking about Links. There must be no angry birds examples in the Beta version cause I'm looking and I'm not seeing. So a huge thanks for the links. Please I'm not asking for anyone to do it for me or I won't learn I just wanted an example to get me going nothing more. What I had in my examples wasn't was what you guys were telling me, there are a few but nothing like the ones in these links. Cheers
