Get help using Construct 2

Post » Sat Dec 05, 2015 10:18 am

note i have a working game already i got that logic cover i find a word tap each letter if word found it cross out good :) but not professional i want when swipe out draw line same time on match word if found or uid or var.

what i am trying to do over three weeks now IS TO instead of tap on each letter i swipe my finger over each letter while tracing a line over it to mark the word which will make the game look and feel more professional

like in the video on youth watch from 0.40 second

R0J0hound did a working example like this a long time ago. Will take a bit of searching for but it should still be around here.

I'm not surprised at all :D

Edit2:
I still can't find the @R0J0hound example...
is it important to work-without families-and update on touching different instances...
is not hard to set straight ahead action(witout update)..you touch first..then second..set angle..compare angle..etc..

system / on start of layout / stringer / Destroy

touch / on any touch start / system / create object stringer on layer 0 at (touch.x,touch.y)

touch / is in touch / stringer / set angle toward (touch.x,touch.y)
stringer / set width to distance (self.x,self.y,touch.x,touch.y)

how to make it set over the word note if you touch again it join instead of making a new line

can use the following the destory
touch / on any touch end / stringer / destroy


MY HOTHEAD BRAIN GONE BLANK AGAIN stuck

@korbaach

The Rojo example is HERE.

Unfortunately, it isn't touch friendly, but could probably be converted.

Might be of use to someone as an example of the 'Word Search' genre.
