How do I (old question) create a page turning effect

Just started using Construct 2? Post your questions here

Post » Thu Jan 12, 2017 9:11 am

Hi

I have searched around the forum for an answer and these are some of the old posts I have found :

viewtopic.php?f=146&t=89408&p=705960&hilit=page+turn+effect#p705960

viewtopic.php?f=147&t=67834&p=576945&hilit=page+turn+effect#p576945

viewtopic.php?f=147&t=67746&p=576314&hilit=page+turn+effect#p576314

Trouble is because of their age , the links to the capx files on someone of these threads no longer work and wondered if anyone had a copy of these or if the original author(s) could provide a link as I am trying to add such an effect into my project.

I presume from there being no replies that the files in these links are no longer something anyone has, Shame really I would have liked to have been able to do this.

Is there any chance of re-visiting this and finding a way to create this effect please?

@gameglaux

Thank you for your reply, one question, how do install the "page.fx" and if needed the "page.xml" as when I open this project it is stating that there are missing effects and am wondering if these files are needed to be installed somehow in Construct 2.

**EDIT**
Found the effects folder and copied them into that , although Construct 2 still states that there are missing effects , they still seem to work when sliding the bar !?!?!?

@gameglaux I found and downloaded the puslar fx from this thread and installed that but when I re-start Construct 2 and load that capx file I am still getting the same warnings :( . I presume this will not stop the pagecurl from working though.

@timcs

All fx of C2 must be in effects drawer.... this mean you need 2 file inside... for example; effect.fx and effect.xml
to use page fx ; open new project .. insert sprite object .. load picture into this sprite
so select the page fx for this sprite; then you can manipulate fx variables on the left... with mouse object on your project.
every thick parameter 0 to mouse.x/100.0 or something ....

Good luck

@Gigatron Thanks for you reply, I did add both page.fx and page.xml into the effects folder and then I added the other effect after that in the same way. They both appear unders effects, however if I load the example you provided in the original thread, I still get a message stating that there are missing effects.

Any ideas why ?

Also thanks on the hints, I am trying to get the page turn to work just by clicking on the sprite object and for it to completely turn over , any ideas on this as well ?
Regards
