I'm quite new to Construct 2 and am having multiple issues with my game that appear to be buggy behavior, but more likely are the result of my lack of understanding. It is a fairly simple game with a single sprite attached to a bullet spritebox which is controlled by the direction keys. Here are the issues:
1. Although my 'ship' has an initial speed of 50 it just sits there for about 10 seconds before moving. Seems like a performance issue but I can't imagine that is the problem.
2. I'm using a HUD as a debugger. The ship's angle of direction is 0 but it is moving to the right. Is that the expected behavior? I thought 0-degrees was up (north).
3. In general there seems to be a long delay between keystrokes and when the sprite responds.
Here is my capx: dl.dropbox.com/u/80427523/Battleship2.capx
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
