How do I set Drag and Drop horizontal and vertical

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Wed Jul 15, 2015 7:27 pm

Hi,

I want to use the drag and drop as joystick for the 8-direction movement.
Is there a way to set it vertical and horizontal at the same time?
The setting 'both' allows any angle, but I want that the drag and drop can only be moved in X- and Y- direction.
In other words to combine 'vertical' and 'horizontal'
Is there a way to do that?

Thanks!

I'm not sure what you are trying to do..
A "normal" physical joystick also had/has freedom of movement in all direction (although there were only four buttons underneath being pushed)..

As an example, what would you like to happen when first dragging down and then dragging left?
Should the player first go back up to the middle before going left?
I told my dentist I had trouble with my teeth and asked her to fix it without looking in my mouth..
