Hello, I'm new to Construct 2 but I have a game in mind I want to create and it uses Grid Movement. I've searched through the forums and Google, even found a thread from 2 months ago on this topic. However, all the links from the previous thread are inactive so it's not very useful. I've looked at the "How Do I" thread as well, but it seems none of the links cover what I'm looking for.
I've found a video of the movement style I'd like, however I'm not allowed to make links yet. So, if you Youtube pokemon gameplay, it should give an idea of the type of movement.
Basically, I'm planning on using the keyboard arrows for movement, and what I'd like to happen is for the hero sprite to move one grid per press of the proper key, and if the key is held for it to continue moving in that direction but staying with the grid. While the sprite is moved, it is animated, and if the direction key is tapped (rather than held) for the animation to play once fully. In the video, the key is held so it makes it look like the hero is walking. If the button is tapped, it looks like the hero takes one step.
I currently have 8-Direction as my movement, although it's changed to 4 direction and is animated.
Can anyone help me recreate this classic style of movement? Thanks for all your time and help!
