This is a single chapter from the "Construct Starter Kit Collection". It is the Student Workbook for its Workshop.
  • Link to .capx file:


    Steps to reproduce:

    1. Run project

    2. Test "8direction-movement" behavior of object "P1P1" with arrow keys.

    3. Press "J" for switching to object P1P4

    (it is the nearest to object "Ball")

    4. Close project

    5. Disable toggle actions 23-25 to turn on switching from object "P1P4" to other nearest to "Ball" object.


    6. Add "Else" conditions to events 14,18,22

    Observed result:

    After pressing "J" once, object "P1P3" is active

    It's also impossible to set "P1P4" "8direction-movement" active.


    after step 6 everything works, but sometimes incorrectly

    Expected result:

    After pressing "J" once, object "P1P4" is active

    After pressing "J" once again, object "P1P3" is active


    after step 6 everything is fine

  • Well, here is another version. Just 3 objects,

    and 2 small changes (action by LeftClick and ignorance of user input instead of "8direction-movement" activation)



    Steps to reproduce:

    1. Click left mouse button to control nearest object

    Observed result:

    10% of clicks make no effect

    Expected result:

    100% of cliks make effect

  • Oh my god, That's because I used the condition "when key is down" instead of "pressed". I'm so sorry :))
