Conveyor belt problem with families

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Fri Sep 14, 2012 10:32 pm


So, right now, it works, but when the characters (platform movement) are up against a wall and being pushed, it jitters madly.

To remedy this I thought I'd simply add in a test to see if they're against a wall, and disable this. Since you can't test directly the underlying platform behaviour, instead I am just testing for collision at offset, however this has disabled the behaviour altogether.



Anyone got any ideas of a better way to do this?

I'm holding off asking too many questions, but this one has me stumped.

You don't need the system-every tick in the first block - because it will check every tick anyway.

And you don't need the "for each gooBlobs" in the subsequence blocks because it will be checking each one anyway. Unless you are attempting to do something more complex than I think you are.

Try removing those. See if that works.

Hmm, it's a little odd - but the for-each was to make sure it was applied to both characters.

Without it, the effect was not applied if two characters were overlapping the conveyor.

I was trying to avoid using too many invisible markers, but I just used an invisible marker haha.

The problem was that the belts were also in the 'floor' family, but due to AI events using the floor family, it was easier just to use a waypoint than figure some convoluted work-around to compensate for the AI needs.

Hello

I am having trouble with this problem. Could someone be kind enough to help me solve the problem?

As shown in the figure above, a thin conveyor belt 15 feet long is drawn tightly around two circular wheels each 1 foot in diameter. What is the distance, in feet, between the centers of the two wheels?

a) (15- π)/2

b) 5π/4

c) 15- 2π
Conveyor Drive
d) 15 - π

e) 2π

the answer is AAlastair

What is this?

Why have you necro-posted in a 4 year old thread?

Please don't pointlessy resurrect old threads - just start a new thread that explains exactly what your problem is, preferably with a .capx or screenshots.
If your vision so exceeds your ability, then look to something closer.
