# Slippery sliding on slope

Get help using Construct 2

### » Mon Dec 24, 2012 8:17 am

Anyone have an idea for the best way to make a platformer slope that pulls you down the hill?

I've tried adding to the X velocity when on slope, I don't think it worked well.

I've tried just doing a +x +y to position when on slope, but it thinks you're always in the air so that doesn't work.

You need to work with gravity.

This: http://www.scirra.com/tutorials/273/how-to-make-a-gravity-based-platformer should fix all your upcoming questions.

Ps: Dont forget to set the players angle like in the Tutorial or it looks like your Player goes stairs down :D

I'm not sure if that tutorial is related? This problem is to do with making a slope that you can slide down, not make you walk around it like in sqiddster's gravity example/tutorial.

Yeah thats what he want but he still need the gravitation to let it look real ;)

Yeah that works, except I should clarify that I'm using the platform movement (not physics).

Yeah, i get that, thought u can kinda mix those two ones- platform and physics:P Give it a try!) Or, manually&without physics, you can either add event that simulates gravity(Like every tick => x=x-dx, y=y-dy, depending on movement angle, and some additional conditions or something, may think on this one later), or you make a Slope family, and then if(player overlaps Slope){player.angle=slope.angle, move player at that angle, add some acceleration}. Huh, hard to figure that out without construct around:D i'll try to play with that ideas when i get back home:)
If that'd be still actual:)JJList2012-12-24 13:43:31

I was trying some complicated ways to do this and then I thought of the most obvious way.
