Animations won't play. Help?

  • So i am pretty new to Construct 2, i know how to animate its just i cant seem to have a death animation play when a sprite dies.

    Here are screenshots of all my events. (Remove spaces between gyazo. and com and between https:// and gyazo.

    The 2 main events for animating "Cowbad" (which is the sprite who's animation isn't working on death) are here.

    So what is happening is that when Cowbad's health reaches 0 or less it is supposed to play a 3 frame animation of him dying and such but when his health reaches 0 or less the animation just gets stuck on the first frame. If anyone could help me it would be very much appreciated.

    Thank you!

  • When the health gets to 0 or less then that event will be running every tick and it keeps restarting the animation. You should add a 'System: Trigger once' condition to that event so that it only runs one time.

    I can't seem to find 'System: Trigger once'

  • Check your other events that change the animation to make sure they aren't running when the Cowbad is dead. Event 9 or 10 could be setting the animation back to default. You could add a condition there to check that health > 0.

  • You would probably get a much quicker, and more thorough response if you posted your .capx on here for us to check directly.

    Thanks alot! I got it, i just put a Health is greater or equals to 1 as another condition for event 9 and 10 and it worked! Once again thanks!
