Animation Speed?

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Wed Jan 29, 2014 3:57 pm

Hi guys and gals, Im trying to set up some animations for when the character eats something (collisions with it) the animation starts, he eats it and the other object get destroyed but it happens so fast its impossible to appreciate. I set the animation speed to 1, set the character time object to half and such things but the animation doesnt slow down at all and it happens so fast that the animation cant be seen. Is there any way or trick to do this? Please help me.

Have a look at the manual entry for the editor - check where it says about the animation bar/speed

linky

How many frames are there in your animation? Do you want to post the capx ?RamPackWobble2014-01-29 16:18:31

RamPack, I already looked at that and it doesnt work even setting it up to 10,000. It does show a tiny bit more, but its not enough. I need something else, but... that should work right? maybe its bugged?

in the editor there is an animation speed (along with loop/ repeat count) and a frame speed. What are these numbers ?

There are 8 frames in total

Right now they are: Speed 10000
                    Loop NO
                    Repeat Count 1
                    Repeat to 0
                    Ping Pong: NO

And the images own frame to 10000

But I tried 1 or 5000 and its almost no difference between them. I could post a capx but its a file over 18mb now... and its all my work there. Frostolo2014-01-29 16:38:18

I meant that I tried with 1,2,3,4,10,20,100,500,1000,5000 and 10000 without luck. The animations just happens as a blink to the main character. Its like he turns big (if I didn't do the animation I would say it is a glitch) and blinks for an instant. And that's it. No way to slow it down? Is there any way to slow down the game to show the animation and then keep on going? Tried with Time rules but so far... nothing :/

Could it be your events are set up in a way the animation isn't playing?

Are you sure there isn't a conflicting event setting the animation to another?

That's what I think it is, but without a capx we're just shooting in the dark
