Simulate pressing right or left not working for me

  • Hi everyone,

    just started with construct 2 and I have been doing some tutorials.

    I have been following the tutorial "How to make a Platform game" by Ashley and near the end, I am stuck. More particularly, I am following the directions on making the "enemySnail" sprite automatically move (https://www.scirra.com/tutorials/253/ho ... ame/page-7) but it does not seem to work. The sprite stays idle in its original position

    You can see the event sheet (and the sprite properties) here: http://imgur.com/a/wLtPU

    I should mention that this event sheet is included in the main event sheet

    Things I tried:

    a. tried to make it move on every tick, just to check if that would work, but it did not

    b. turned the default controls on and it would move according to the arrows

    I am certain it is something obvious or simple but my lack of experience is not helping. Any advise would be welcome

  • Took me a while to figure it out, but your level layout is using the wrong event sheet

    Oh god, so obvious in hindsight. Thanks a lot for your help.

    I cannot dare imagine how I would go about debugging a full complex game, even in construct 2

  • Hey, every puzzle is obvious once you know the answer. It took me a while to figure out as well

    It's not so bad! The hard part of debugging is mostly a matter of working out which system is misbehaving. A big complicated game will have a lot of systems, but most of them won't pertain to a particular problem. It's not as hard as you'd think, so don't be scared
