Reflecting laser beams off surfaces

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Fri Dec 30, 2011 2:44 am

Hi, I've just started using Construct 2 and I'm looking to add lasers that reflect off selected surfaces. I've been working on it for a while now, and can't seem to figure out how to go about getting this effect.

I'm looking for something very similar to the effect in the demogame "Can't turn it off", only the position of the laser "cannons" will be fixed rather than controlled by mouse movement.

I've tried searching the forums/tutorials with no luck. If someone could help me with this, or point me to an old topic/tutorial if one exists, that would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance, Nimtrix.

Send a PM to Animmaniac if you want his answer. I must admit I also wonder how he did it. I did the same effect on construct classic using a kind of chain reaction with instant hit bullets to get some coordinates and drawing lines between them. But I don't think it's doable like that in c2.

Do you think Animmaniac can share it with the forum? There's a lot of really interesting things in that game! I'm still trying to figure out how to make speech bubbles work correctly and would love to see what makes his game tick.

I think Animmaniac may have did something like this:

Fantastic stuff ROJO. I've seen a couple of capx for lasers and that has to the best so far!
