How to create 2.5D effect?

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Fri Feb 07, 2014 1:21 pm

Basically I have trees and buildings that you can walk in front of, but I want so when you walk behind them, that they go transparent, but I do not want to have to setup a condition for each individual object, is there an easier way to do what I am attempting? Thanks in advance! -dilk

Alright, so you don't have Families in free version.
What you could do is to simulate families using one Sprite object.
Put all your images into one Sprite - frames or animations, it's up to You.
So you would have one Sprite, let's call it "Objects".
If you go with frames it will look like this
Frame 0 - Tree
Frame 1 - Building
Frame 2 - something else
...
Then in layout editor instead of placing different objects you will place instances of sprite "Objects" with different frames.

I would give you a example capx file, but I'm not at home at the moment.
Maybe someone can make You this one. It's really easy.
