Animations

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Sun Aug 21, 2011 11:52 pm

Would someone please explain to me how to insert animations? I am talking about simple things like an animation of a character walking right when the right arrow key is pressed (with 8 directional movement).

Thanks,

Jason

Hi

Insert new sprite. Notice Animation Frames window below main Edit Image window. Right Click and either Import/Add frame(s) or import sprite strip.

If your vision so exceeds your ability, then look to something closer.

What I mean is, how I make the animation "looped" when when the right arrow key is pressed

Oops Sorry ! I now found the animation properties box on the left side ;)
But a working help function would be great.

Thank your for the info!

Of course ... I understand you, but for me as a new user, it is hard to explore your app terms without help.

Actually, I use an another "non code" game creator, but I've bought because of HTML5 export.

Well, I'll be back when C2 help system is more advanced. :)

Also, I do missing a bounce movement or I have no idea, how doing it.vidi2011-08-28 11:22:50

"I am talking about simple things like an animation of a character walking right when the right arrow key is pressed (with 8 directional movement)."

I tried this simple thing to make since yesterday.
When the arrow keys are pressed, play animation xyz ... else stop animation. I have so many variation tried. Also e.g. with group activation, variables ect. and now I give up.

I'm Sorry, I need help again
How is the simply solution for that ?

Usually events like this are enough to get animations working:

+ On left arrow pressed
-> Set animation to "Walking"

+ On left arrow released
-> Set animation to "Stopped"

And same for right, up and down arrows. That usually will do for the 8 direction movement.

Ah I see, it is wrong with the animation stop action.
Thank you Ashley!
