How do I: Free-Fall and go a step back?

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Wed Oct 28, 2015 10:03 pm

Hello and first i have to say sorry for my english ;) I'm from Austria and new here (also new with C2).

I think C2 is very powerful and great to realize own projects. I see a lot of great games here and it blows me away when i see, what C2 can do! But thats not the reason why i write here my first posting ;)

I have a problem *g*I want to make (better say, try) a small project - like the "Free Fall" games from Disney (Cinderella-, Maleficent- and Frozen-Free Fall) or Monster Splash or Fruit Link or anything like that - where you have to combine 3 or more objects of the same "color" -> they will destroy -> new objects appear, etc. (I think you will know games like that *g*)

My problem is not to combine the objects or spawn new one - my problem is to de-combine the objects or go a step back, so the player can find another possible way to combine the objects (i hope you understand what i mean).

Here's a link to a small .capx where you can see, how i combine the objects at the moment:I'm sure that I use a very unconventionally way and i know, there's a much better way - I think with Arrays all my problems can be solved, but i have no plan with Arrays ;)
The most Tutorials i don't unterstand (here, fot this posting i need help from google-translate *g*).

I hope anyone can help me :)

Thanks!

I already sent you a PM (where we could write in german), but for all the other nice and friendly and helpful users here, i answer in english ;)

I know and understand your problem - i also have the same with my (at the moment paused) project EYE CRUSH.
Your link does not work anymore, so i think no one can "see" what's your problem.
The next bad news: i also don't know a solution *g*

I think your title is not chosen well, 'couse everyone think you mean a "normal" Match-3-Game, where you change the position of two "Gems" to create a row of 3 or more "Gems" of the same color ...

But in your game (also in mine) the player draws a line (while in-touch) from one Gem to another Gem of the same color - and when touch ends all selected Gems will be destroyed (you can try it in my project EYE CRUSH).

But what we don't know is how to get a "step back" (i hope someone understand what we mean and can help).

Thanks!

Can't download your file, but speaking in general..

before combining your objects set either a dictionary object, variables or an array to the objects (and their position) and on step back, recreate them..
I told my dentist I had trouble with my teeth and asked her to fix it without looking in my mouth..

There is like nothing in that capx.
There is no destroying, no free falling, no new objects appearing.
Not even the graphics for 'new objects' present.
No rules that can lead to combining a certain amount of a certain colour into a certain new object.

Sorry, i can (no one can ?) show how to 'undo' something that is not 'do' yet.
