How do I use VectorX the proper way

Get help using Construct 2

Hi guys,

this might sound stupid, but I'm not sure if I use the "Set vector X" action right.

I'm trying to make an attack where the player moves fast forward, so I decided to set the vector x of the player to 500 (in order that the player would move 500 px in a second).
This works fine for "Set Vector Y" but however the player just moves a little. Even if a set the value to 100000 it still just moves a little bit.

I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. Thank you!

I suspect your events are being negated by the player's max speed setting in the platform behaviour. I suggest you temporarily increase the max platform speed to enable this (and maybe change the deceleration as well).

Thanks for your reply. That's what I thought as well. I'll try to make a workaround for it.
Thank you!
