how about if you want to make the dynamic drop shadows a gameplay mechanic, similar to
stealthbastard game

Whats the simplest way to achieve that in construct 2?

I've tried many of the examples in the forum but I've found that it's super hard to get dynamic shadows that perform well in large complex layouts

I guess that sconstruct 2 will never be able to produce a game such as stealth bastards (made with Game maker Studio)
www.stealthbastard.com

I should look into learning game maker then?

Well, just because you haven't found a way to do it yet doesn't mean it can't be done. From what's on these forums there are ways to draw the shadows. There just isn't an example made yet to test if an object is in shadow. As a simple idea the line of sight behavior could be used from the lights to the player and if there isn't a LOS then the player must be in shadow. There are probably other ways though.
