I tried looking through Construct 2's features for these, as well as searching through the forums and tutorials. Didn't find what I needed, so anyway here's what I'm talking about. Is there a possible way I can do this in Construct 2 normally or any plugins existing that do either of these or both? I'm aware of the Canvas plugin, but I heard it lags on large layouts.
No, not tinting a sprite. Tinting the whole screen, in terms of changing the current red/green/blue/grey values (from -255 to 255) to change the overall tent of the screen. Some screenshots:
Before screen tint (normal)
Making a visual affect where an object that is a source of light (such as a campfire or lamp) has a brighter tint on it compared to the rest of the layout, with a layout traditionally darker than the light source.
Example (look at the streetlamps}
