I recently got into Construct 2 and am enjoying it so far. I've gone through the shooter tutorial and am now continuing with the tutorial code, adding in various things to learn more about Construct 2.
One of the things I've added is a gun power-up which will enable the player to shoot at full auto for 5 seconds. Currently, I am generating it a specific location every 6 seconds (I'll randomize the location later...makes it easier to debug at the moment). The power-up sprite will only generate if there is not one already on the map. I've gotten the full auto feature to work as well when the player collides with the power-up sprite.
However, I cannot figure out how to limit the full-auto feature to work for only 5 seconds. I've tried a few different things, but, the primary bug is that, while it works great the first time, when the full-auto ends and the player attempts to immediately pick up another full-auto power-up, it will not trigger...I have the code attached. The power-up events are all at the bottom of Event Sheet 1.
