Slingshot like angry birds (capx included)

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Thu Sep 27, 2012 12:34 pm

Ok so trying to get a sort of slingshot behaviour, pretty much like angry birds, here is my capx:

http://dl.dropbox.com/u/73268676/Slingshot.capx

very simple so far as rectangle sprite for the band, a square sprite for a stone

I'm not after actual realistic slingshot, i know someone has put a capx of a can and 2 bands bouncing like a trampoline, but I'm after something much simpler

I'll later apply an impulse to the stone in the angle of the band, simple

My issue is I only want the band to come back so far, but then for them still to be able to move the stone around at different angles, just like angry birds, in my capx you will see I have a condition which checks the distance between the stone and the origin of the band, if its greater than 300 it stops

but thats the problem, once it hits 300 its stuck! i want to be able to keep the mouse down and still move in all angles and have the stone position itself correctly, just not get any further than 300 from the band origin

any help is greatly appreciated here, im sure this is something a lot of people would be interested in doing

thank you
