I need to know if there is an action or condition in construct that will essentially make an animation play out entirely no matter what.
so in my game i'm trying to have a block and dodge system where holding the Z key will put you in a block stance, and pressing left or right on the keyboard will make you dodge left and right respectively. So far so good. but the problem comes in with the dodge animation. Right now, the condition I have is this
Condition: Z key is down
Sub-event: Right/Left key is pressed
Action: Set animation to Dodge
So I set this up and because I want the dodge to shoot you left and right rather quickly, I've given the player character bullet movement that is enabled when the dodge animation is playing and gets turned off when it's not.
But here's the problem
Because of my conditions, if i'm not holding the Z key and the right/left key, then the dodge animation just stops halfway through and the bullet movement is still there, so my character just glides across the floor till they hit the wall. If i hold both the Z key and the left or right key until the animation is over, then everything works fine, but if I don't, then i've got problems.
So I essentially need a way to make sure that the entire animation plays regardless of whether I'm holding the z and left/right key throughout the entire animation. I've been trying to come up with some roundabout ways to make this happen, but I just need to know if there is a convenient action that could just force an animation to play out entirely. I'll post the capx. below.
