toouchscreen controls

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Fri Mar 30, 2012 2:12 pm

I have recently begun building a tower defence game (as noted before) I am trying to build the game to only use touch screen controls so that it can be easily deployed to mobile devices.

I was building the game and I havent seen a 'swipe' command for touchscreen, e.g. if you quickly swipe the screen in some games it might perform an action. I cant seem to find this ability within Construct2's touch screen. Am i missing this or has it not been implemented as an option.

Thanks for the help with the query.

Pode had developped the cutsom unistroke gesture recognizer plugin.
That's probably something you want.

We don't have this implemented yet but if you track the TouchX/TouchY co-ordinates and see if they move quickly enough you might be able to detect a swipe that way.

thanks for the info, ill give Pode's plugin a try before giving tracking a try. Its not essential for my game but would be nice to implement it. :)
