Drag and Throw Physics

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Wed Dec 14, 2011 6:40 am

Thanks chrisbobs, your catapult project is helping me alot.
I've been trying to add a launch guide upon dragging the pole back. The guide is a long, straight arrow sprite that should stretch out further when the catapult is drawn further back.
Been tweaking the position/angle/width of the 'elastic' sprite just to test, but I still can't arrive at the right formula.
Can I get some help on like arriving at a solution?

It looks like the new links are broken as well.

Though, I gotta say thanks for all the ideas so far. This has been a subject I've been having trouble with for awhile myself.

@Tedg Thanks, mate. I swear I'd look my head if it weren't firmly planted up my bum.

@chrisbrobs You, sir, are a scholar and a gentleman!
