Hello, I want that when my player jumps for example on the left side of the trampoline I go left, when he jumps through downtown is jumping up and when around the right side to jump to the right ...

use 3 square sprites(set them invisible of course during runtime ) and place them along your trampoline surface.then say
Player on collision with "left sprite"
and platform is falling                    set platform y -500
set platform x -200
Player on collision with "center sprite"
and platform is falling                    set platform y -500

Player on collision with "right sprite"
and platform is falling                     set platform y -500
set platform x 200

In the paid version of Construct 2, this issue can easily be handled with a [URL=https://www.scirra.com/manual/150/containers]Containers[URL].

In the free version of C2, when the trampoline moves, you can define each of the sprites to also move the same way. This would just take more events and actions.

@statham, but if you want more jumping direction without adding additional sprites, you could possibly get the location of where the player collision occurs, the do some maths to calculate the angle the player should bounce.danialgoodwin2014-02-04 22:49:54

Give your ball the bullet behavior and set it to bounce off of solids. You can also use the PIN behavior to pin the 3 "bounce" sprites to the trampoline so that when it moves they move with it.

What kind of example would help?

create three sprites give them pin behaviour
pin them to the trampoline on start of layout

Pretty basic if you ask me,
shouldn't be that hard..
I told my dentist I had trouble with my teeth and asked her to fix it without looking in my mouth..
