How do I adjust layout size based on character positions.

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Fri Jan 22, 2016 1:03 pm

I'm working on a brawl/smash sort of game and I have a camera with the scroll to function with a lerp.
When a character is almost at the edge of the view I want the camera to zoom out (Layout size) but the only way I can find is to set the layout size, not to adjust it per second or tick. Does anyone have any ideas how to do this?

You can change the layout scale over time.

Every tick->Set layoutscale to lerp(layoutscale, target, 5*DT)

Target is the layout scale you're shooting for.

Alternately, you could also add or subtract to it over time until a certain condition is meet.

If layoutscale >0.5 ---> set layoutscale to layoutscale-0.2*DT

Meaning it will subtract 0.2 gradually per second until it reaches about 0.5.

Oh god, so dumb of me that I let a simple lerp slip my mind (since I used it for the camera too).
Thanks I'll post back if it has the effect I need, or not, or better I'll just edit this post if there are no more new posts.

Edit: It worked, First I calculated the distance between the characters and stored it into a variable and used that variable to zoom out based on the distance between those objects (players) using the lerp. Thanks, this problem is solved rather quickly.
