# Changing gravity angle problem

Get help using Construct 2

### » Fri Aug 17, 2012 7:49 pm

Hi all,

I have recently started using construct 2 to make games and I am experimenting with changing the gravity. But I have run into a problem.

Lets say there is a platform moving from the left to the right, which is solid and there's a ball that can move according to the platform rules. If I change the gravity angle to 180 degrees, the ball falls to the left on the platform. My problem is: When it is on the platform, it slowly moves up without me touching any buttons. When I move it up, it goes faster then it should and when I move it down, it goes slower then it should. Like something is "pulling" it up.

I do not have this problem when the gravity angle is 90 degrees and the platforms move up. Feel free to ask more questions and please help me.

How are you changing the gravity angle?

Thnx for the link, but there is one problem: I use platform and you use bullet and 8 direction movement. I could try to change platform to those two and see if it works. Boaz2012-08-18 09:27:08

Nevermind, I tried but it won't work. I'll just continue building my game but I'll still be looking for a solution.

Almost. Only the gravity changes from up --> down to right --> left. Another option would be to just spin around the entire thing 90 degrees, but I don't know how to do that. :p
