Sprite mirroring resetting after resize ?

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Wed Mar 13, 2013 7:54 pm

I'm new to Construct and I am working on a game that kept me awake for the last couple of nights until find out the "problem":
After I set mirrored to a sprite then resize it, the "set mirrored" property resets to default. Is this supposed to be by design, or what?
I think the logic way (the way every editing software work) is to keep the previous states of the object and focus on the current one.
I am really not finding the logic behind most of Construct 2 workflow.

This is the game I'm working on....to see I have done my homework and is kind of complex algorithm finding the continuity of the pipes. Now I have to make the water flow through the pipes and I want to mirror and flip the animation representing the water (not shown here).

Is there anyone who can help me a little further making the animation of the water? I can give the capx in private.(but is a biiiiiig mess inside)
Can I use the pathfinding behaviour by any chance?
Thanks.

To answer your question regarding mirroring, when you mirror a sprite, you're essentially settings it's width to negative. So if you have a sprite with a width of 25, and you set it to mirror, its width is -25. So in your example, your resizing back to un-mirrored dimensions. zatyka2013-03-13 20:53:57
