Pathfinding Behavior

  • I recently started porting an old project of mine (adventure point and click made with wintermute at the time) to construct 2.

    My character is made with spriter and i am using the pathfinding behavior to move it around obstacles (cell size 40, border -1).

    I got 2 strange bugs:

    1. When the character switches direction (mirror) there is about 2-3 seconds delay before the path is calculated, if i continue walking in the same direction, no matter how many obstacles or distance i walk, the calculation is almost instantly.

    I tried increasing the cell block size, or cutting down the sprites obstacles to min 4 instances, but nothing helps.

    2. Sometimes when i switch direction while the character is still moving in the other direction, the character does a strange semicircle shaped sine movement.

    Anybody encountered these problems?

    here is the demo:

  • Which version of construct 2 are you using

  • Latest stable 163, but i checked there were no updates regarding pathfinding in 164/165.

  • I think you're meant to report this as a bug, with an example cpx.

  • I will, as last resort, i wanted to see if anyone has encountered these bugs or already reported them before i do.

  • Seems that the pathfinding object is just turning. Try increasing the turning rate.

  • Great! thanks, it helped!

    I thought that this param only applies when Rotate Object is set to YES, it didn't even cross my mind to check it!

    Thanks again.

    Hey, that actually helped me with my game too! I got so carried away with other things that I kinda glanced over rotation speed since I'm just using the box as a pathfinding device that the characters are pinned to. But now they can turn around the other direction faster. Cool stuff.
