I'm just getting to grips with Construct2 and so far everything is flowing pretty smoothly.
However, my character has an animation for a simple jump straight up, but I'd also like her to perform a different animation if she jumps whilst moving left or right. How best would I achieve this?
Sure - if the Platform speed is not equal to 0, use a different animation
I think this should work:
Player On jump
(Sub-Event)Player platform is moving --> Set animation to "this"
(Sub-Event)Player platform is not moving --> Set animation to "that"
Same for On landed, if you want to have different animations (Idle, Run)
Thank you very much, that's fantastic!
One last question on the same topic - if I wanted to add an animation in for a pre-jump (so the player crouches down and prepares to spring forward) how would I ensure that this plays before the sprite jumps?
On key down "space" --> Set anim to "pre-jump"
On anim "pre-jump" finished --> Similate platform pressing jump
I don't now if this will work, but try it.

Thank you for replying, unfortunately that doesn't work for me
It seems like the pre-jump animation isn't playing at all. However, it is definitely there.
