Sorry for the shoddy title, not enough space to explain what I mean!
I've been using Construct 2 for about a week and at seemingly complete random the 8 Direction behaviour in all of my projects is changing Vector X / Y 'incorrectly'. What's happening is when I'm moving just left, the Y Vector will set itself to a number above 0. When I'm moving just up or down, the X Vector will also then set itself to a number above 0. I have no idea why it's suddenly decided to do this.
The problem with this is that any events I have using the 8 Direction condition "is moving" now don't work properly. Because the player can be right up against the a wall, press the arrow key into it, and since the Vector Y / X will set itself above 0 for some reason, the player will now play the walking animation into the wall, because they are apparently "moving". (The other Vector works as normal.) Something interesting is that when it's set to whatever number, the character will not actually move in the direction at all. Another interesting thing is that pressing left will keep the Vector Y to 0, but pressing right will set it above 0 for whatever reason.
I looked this up here on Scirra and found only one other person who had this issue (they had submitted a bug report), and Ashley had replied stating it would be something to do with math calculations in the events. I looked through my own events and couldn't find any issues, so decided to make a completely fresh project with no events at all with one single 8 Direction sprite. And to my surprise, this issue happened there as well!
So now I'm guessing I've changed some setting somewhere by accident..? I'm really not sure where to go from here. I can't really go any further with some projects because I can't test anything to do with animations properly whilst this bug still exists.
If you've read all of the above and don't understand what I mean at all, that's okay, I made a 1 minute video to show what I mean visually. Hopefully by watching this the issue should become a lot more obvious to see.
The link got removed for my reputation, so I'll break it up here. "Piece together at your own risk" or something, I guess? "youtube .com / watch? v=LbIhlwR5spQ"
Hopefully this is something obvious I'm missing, I'd really like to get this back to normal, I have no idea what's caused it. Thanks in advance!
