Time rewind (Braid)

For questions about using Classic.

Post » Sat Nov 28, 2009 4:35 pm

Hello!

That's right, I would like to record some gameplay action and go back in time pretty much like Braid. I know about TimeScale, but I have no idea on how to implement that.

I am fairly new to Construct but I have grasped many base concepts. Is time rewinding possible, and how? Props and a game credit to who helps me out.

Thanks a lot.

Possible, yes. Not with Timescale, no. You'd have to come up with your own engine that allows time manipulation. It would have to fulfill these conditions:

1.) A way to record all actions.
2.) A way to manipulate all objects in a way these actions can be reversed in all regards.
3.) A way to scale animations with the 'time'. Slow animations down, freeze, reverse etc.

All of the above has to be very accurate; a slight disrespectancy can throw the whole game off its hinges.
