Since it seems that the Chrome 8-directional bug when clicking is not going to be solved anytime soon (not blaming Scirra, it looks like Chrome's fault), I am in need of a way to replicate the 8-directional behavior with events.
Things of issue that I would have troubles with doing it myself:
-acceleration and deceleration
-diagonal movement (not moving faster than vert/hor, etc.)
-not getting stuck in walls when rotating
Thankfully my walls are all one object so I don't have to wait for families.
Any support would be very helpful.
