On Signal Trigger Event Suggestion

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Tue Aug 02, 2016 11:43 am

Hi,

I would like to suggest a new system event, " on signal" which will be a trigger event. So in addition to waiting for a certain signal (e.g. Wait for signal action), there should a trigger for the signal action.

Thanking you,
Warm Regards,
akkthedev :D

You can easily achieve this functionality using variables or groups. I don't see the purpose of having this "on signal" event.

Easily, you just activate/deactivate groups instead of this "On signal" event. Also you can use a variable like "can_begin" with default value at 0. The make the event Compare variable "can begin" = 1 & Trigger once while true. You just have to change the value of the variable wherever you want to "signal" it. Just don't forget to reset it's value if you plan on using it more than once. You can even use functions for that.
