hi, I'm new to construct 2 wanted to know how to rotate an object by holding down a button. thanks
Looking for smooth rotation or by increments (like 45 degrees at a time)?
Smooth rotation, thanks for collaboration
So many ways to do this..
you have the rotate towards angle - action
The rotate towards position - action
the rotate behaviour
All depends on your needs..
(BTW: this topic should be in the How-do-I section of this forum)
Yeah, there are a lot of options, as LittleStain said.
One simple way is to do
Condition: Keyboard -> Key is down -> [Pick the key you want]
Action: [Select the sprite you want to rotate] -> Rotate clockwise or counterclockwise -> By 5 degrees (or whatever, holding the key down will keep it moving)
here you go a few examples on keyboard or automated by Sinebehavior
you can also check the forum for other rotational custom plugins /behaviors but there is no need for them actually
