Hi,I decided to do my game in construct 2 since a lot of bugs in construct classic,but i dont know how to make jumping animation.
How to do it,i want my character jumping when spacebar is pressed.
Also i did character choosing menu,and theres 2 characters-castaway and pirate.
I set that pirate should be mirrored if left arrow is pressed,but it doesnt work,why ?
Heres capx
PS: sorry but this game is going to be made for friends,so it isnt in english.

There is "Is on ground" and "Is falling" conditions in "Platformer" behavior.
Do it like this:
If (Is NOT on ground)
if (Is falling) - set animation "falling"
else - set animation "jumping"

You need to use "Simulate control" action under platform behavior actions for sprite.
Put it in a keypress event with action simulate control platformer jump.

I did some minor tweaking on your capx. It should start at menu now by default and goes to the correct layout when you click a character.
I put the movement behaviors into groups for each character and have it activate/deactivate the other when a different character selected to avoid nasty control bugs (like your lack of pirate control). Both characters mirror and unmirror correctly but the animations need some work :). (click the download arrow in upper right corner of screen)

It is far from optimized but it "works" now. One tip though, I see both characters use the same level layout design wise. Why not simply have one layout instead of two and use a spawn sprite event for the chosen character, would be much more efficient.
