Dont Starve like Gameplay? (Video Included)

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Sun Jan 20, 2013 6:00 pm

Hi guys! I was trying to make a game with the character movement of Don't Starve and all that. If you don't know what the game is, look at this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ENl-89bY0i4

Okay so I have the random forest generation down, but I cant seem to get the player moving correct. This is what I have:
Bevar in the Wild! CAPX

Apparently what I have doesn't seem to work well. Can someone check it out?

you have 2 options:

-You want that the Player Sprite rotate depending of direcction? then you must change the origin of the sprite to the center, not in bottom

-You dont want to rotate the sprite on moving? then set the angle in the 8 direction behavior to "no".


Another thing is that tree hitbox its too big, try to put the collision hitbox only in the bottom part of the tree, not in the branches.

What I wanted to do, is have that weird type of gameplay where he can go behind, next to, or in front of the trees. I think you can do that with layering and stuff.

You need to right-click on the tree sprite in construct 2. Then go to the toolbar on the left (the one with pencils and erasers). On the bottom of that toolbar the last icon that looks like some lines and circles, click on it. Its the set collision polygon icon. From there choose parts of the trees you dont want to be solid.
