How do I make the bow...

Just started using Construct 2? Post your questions here

I feel really dumb for not being able to figure this out on my own, but I can't make it so when the player switches to/spawns a bow, (let's say the player is facing right when he spawns it then turns left) I can't make it so the bow will go to the side of the player that is then facing left, I can make the bow face the same way he is, but it's on the wrong side of the player's body. What events would fix this? (sorry if this is hard to understand)

one method would be to give the player a second image point (on the players hand) so when you switch direction (and I am assuming here you are then mirroring the player and the bow ?) just move the bow to the player image point (hand).

Is the player static ? Have you looked at using pin ? Can you post the capx so we can see where you are at and perhaps give better suggestions for this ?

edit added capx - I bet there is a much smarter way (my excuse is I've not had any coffee yet)

Never mind, I figured out how to attach a .capx,
here it is

Edit: some things, like the 8 Direction behaviour, are for thing which I'll make latter, such as ladders.

So I have V 163 apparently and these files are from V 166 or newer. How do I get a newer version download?
