Feature: Wallclock Wait Action

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Mon Jan 19, 2015 11:59 pm

@Ashley

I noticed that the "WAIT" action in system is dependant on time scale, thus it's impossible to do events like this whilst the time-scale is zero;

Construct 2 example.capx


Currently a way to partially get around this is to set the time-scale to say, 0.00000000001, set the wait action accordingly and maybe add a global variable that restricts certain events from happening while the time-scale is 0.00000000001.

Could you please add a "Wallclock Wait" action in the next build? There is a wallclock time expression in the system expressions menu but no wallclock wait.


Essentially "Wallclock Wait" would be a "Wait" action that is not affected by the time-scale.


If it's not too much of a problem can you please add this in the next build?
Thank you very much!

Actually this would be pretty handy. I usually just set an object's time scale to 1 and get its specific dt for use in timers elsewhere...but it's kind of annoying.

Or, just have the option to make wait not bound to timescale.

"action:wait" will be affected by timescale.
Designer could
1. put an object and set the timescale to 1,
2. add a timer behavior to count the time out
3. use "action: wait signal" to wait the timer timeout.

Here is a sample capx.
