How do I Create Colorful Lighting?

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Wed Apr 30, 2014 7:16 pm

Hi everyone,
I was looking around on the forums for any example that shows how to make Colorful lighting in a decent enough fashion to for us to use for a game.
I havnt been able to find any examples at all.
I have been using @Ashley html 5 lighting method to learn from but im not getting what i need.Im looking for colored lights.
I understand that using distortion out on a white spotlight sprite will create a basic light effect.
But what about adding Color? Ive tried to add a colored spotlight sprite to my demo and all it would do is turn any color i used into a white colored light.
Has anyone ever made lighting effects in this manner,I really need some feedback on how to make it happen.

Sorry If I misunderstand your question, but using colored sprites with screen or dodge blend modes doesn't suffice..?

@eli0s ive never been successful making colored lighting. I tried using the colored sprites inside Ashleys demo he provided.Thank you for making a capX file.
I took a look at your file and i would love to know if this works with Distortion Out?
I will have a black Overlay that will fade in and out.

If this does work with Distortion Out,I would have to say that this is Amazing! Thank you once again for your effort in creating this demo for me @eli0s

@RookieDev

I think you mean destination out, I haven't found anywhere a distortion blend, or webgl effect... This raises a problem, I see your concern. A work around will be to copy/paste all sprites to an other layer above, but perhaps that's not ideal with many lights, for performance reasons. See the following attached file.
