Objects in front of each other?

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Sun Sep 11, 2011 7:57 am

Is there currently a way, without using layers, to choose which objects are drawn on top of each other? i.e. the order of drawing...
How long will I have to wait for this feature to be implemented? (I am not complaining of course, you guys do a great job, but I need to know if I need to use layers for this manner)

Thanks, sqiddster

I guess you want a feature like Z ordering from Classic - I'll see if I can get something in for the next build.

Try out r55, released just today. Have a look at the new Z Order actions. Does that help?

Umm... is it just me, or does the Z-ordering not work, at all? 'send to front' and 'send to back' seem to now work.

@sqiddster can you post a .capx showing what you mean? Remember those actions only affect the object on its current layer, it won't change its layer.

I think it works but perhaps a couple of my objects are glitched out or something - I will re-import them I guess.

It seems to not work for some of my objects... It just seems to not do anything!

I don't have time to upload a .capx... any ideas as to what could be happening?

Yes, it seems to work for some objects and not others.
Wait... does it only wok for specific instances? aha! that must be the problem.
How do I do it universally for all instances of an object?
