This allows for a texture transform like in mario cart.

To install extract to your "Construct2\effects" folder.

Example capx:

Disclaimer:
While this can do a mode7 type transformation, it is very hard to use. I've also abandoned support for it.

I sense some pseudo3d on the horizon!

Nice! I started to mess with the same idea some time ago, but ended up very busy and didn't have the time to finish it.

I also made a proof of concept for a raycast shader that would work great with this. It still needs a lot of polishing to improve precision, correct some distortions and achieve better performance, but it proved feasible:

Raycast Shader Demo

Controls:
WASD / Arrows - move
Mouse - rotate view
Left Click - draw at cursor
Right Click - erase at cursor
Mouse Wheel - change "angle" of view
M - show/hide map

*There's no mouse lock, so if you rotate too much to one side you need to rotate back to aim correctly. Also the draw/erase only works when you click over the window.

Hopefully I will finish it someday, then we can combine it with mode7 for old school FPSs.Animmaniac2013-01-15 02:39:58

@Animmaniac, looks nice man! I can see Wolfenstein (although I'd prefer Dungeon Master) clones pouring out if you ever release the code to that ;p

Thanks dude.

Only issue I see at the moment is that things in the distance are not filtered nicely (I think it's called mipmapping.)

Awesome! I totally missed this. The star of my game has been in and out of the hospital with a nasty flu, which turned into an ear infection and now a mystery virus :(

Thanks for the awesome plugin! Can't wait to try it...if I can only get a little time now between work and Maddi being sick.

It only took me 2 hours to get the flying level up and running in the CC version of Go!Go!Maddi! Hopefully I can do it the same way!!

Again thank you very much!!!

This is really neat and performs well! But something concerns me; how would someone map sprites onto this to follow the pseudo 3D? this would open up a world of possibilities if we could do that
