How do I create a dynamic light shadow effect

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Wed Sep 30, 2015 10:02 am

Is there any way that I can do this dynamic light shadow effect with Construct 2? I've created this in Buildbox, but Buildbox doesn't even have an even sheet.. Thanks in advance. http: / /prntscr.com/8m4a1w

Have you had a look at the shadow examples that ship with construct 2?

Can you show as an example of your lighting result in Buildbox?

The light radius is a circular gradient image as a sprite which follows your character (pinned perhaps). This gradient could be used on a layer colored black, and you would use that gradient as a mask to see through the black layer.

Your character also needs a shadow light object to follow it (pinned perhaps), and all the boxes need a shadow caster behavior. Make the shadow casters cast on a layer above the circular gradient light radius, and the effect should be complete.

Perhaps see this for guidance on the light radius effect: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z6h260Fg6H0

What @RamPackWobble already gave you a few posts before is practically what you want. Here is a capx that matches more what you're after:
