Been all through the forums trying to find a good answer for what I'm trying to do (no point in posting a cap yet as I've removed all bits regarding the issue).
I'm trying to make a tree bend in a wind storm. Entirely 2D - I figured a distort effect using columns and rows would handle it. I want the bottom of the tree to not move at all and every row towards the top it moves a bit more.
I've tried doing the basic stuff like SINE - but it rotates the whole object. I figured maybe having the code set to grab the x distortion from the previous row and adding a value to it - but the rows above the moving one do not respond to it, they only see the adition value I've added.
Go to 1:47 into the video.
Ghouls n Ghosts for the tg16/supergrafx has the effect I'm trying to go for. I feel like I was close but I screwed something up.
I considered animating the trees but I kinda like this cheesy effect.
Any help is greatly appriciated! I'm not a total noob on here my account wouldn't let me reset the password so I gave up and made a new account (damainman69). I was learning Construct last year by rebuilding the first level of the Black Tiger arcade game :)
Anyhow, Thanks in advance for any help!!!
