How do I Make My Thrown Axe Pin To Objects Reliably?

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Thu Mar 13, 2014 4:43 pm

I am working on a project for my Midterm which is due in 4 days. One of the integral parts of my game is the ability for my character to throw his axe and have it pin to things, and have him pick it up when he runs over it. However, when pinned to objects sometimes the axe tends to wait a few seconds and before "slipping" down and eventually off of the screen. Also, at times the axe tends to embed itself too deeply to be picked up, and other times it refuses to be picked up at all! I have also tried to make it stick blade first into objects to make it more realistic but, I could only figure out how to make it stick at a 145 Degrees, which means that it only acts realistically when thrown onto the top of a horizontal object. Keep in mind that I have been mainly working on the events and game mechanics, so everything else is rough. Any and all help in smoothing out this troublesome problem is appreciated :D !

I have a new issue now :(. Last night stopped working on the test.capx file from before and started my work from the swordthrow.capx file. However when i downloaded it from Firefox I opened it with construct 2 but I did not save it. I got a ton of work done and I saved a lot, but this morning when i went to open the file it was nowhere to be found. The only traces I could find of it was the .capx.autosave file in my temp folder. When I try to open that I get a message that says "The file maybe invalid. Try checking the file in a text editor (Projects are saved in XML format).", but the file isn't empty and I don't wish to redo multiple hours worth of work. Also, it does not seem that Scirra will allow me to post files with the .autosave extension. If anyone has any experience with this sort of problem, please share it with me. I would really appreciate it.

your project requires a plugin, "scml", can you remove it or give us a link for download?

I think this should do it.

The fact that the Axe is referred to as a sword is confusing, I intend to change that I've just been negligent.

You should use the Edit function instead of quadruple-posting. :P

Just so you know, I'm having a look at it and trying to solve your problem. Also cleaning it up a bit, so things are easier to understand.
Will let you know if I get things working.

Anyway I'll post the result here
