My first project with Construct 2 was a basic pinball. Today, I've tried to build an improved version from scratch, but I encountered a problem with rotating paddles.
In my first project I used a rotation joint, 0 to 30 degrees, and then applied a +100 impulse towards angle 30 to make either paddle move forward (it was weird for me same angle worked for left and right paddle, since one rotated counter-clockwise and the other clockwise).
In this project, after trying many approaches, I've returned to my previous strategy, but:
- The paddles don't rotate around "origin" distance point. They rotate around image center. I've tried to insert a third paddle (so I could see if the first sprite, duplicated as first and second paddle, was buggy). The result is the same.
- The paddles return to their default position the long way rotating counter-clockwise, even when they could reach it easily by rotating clock-wise (i.e. they "fall" to 0? by rotating +335? instead of -30?).
Weirdest of all, paddles work fine on my older project., with the same settings.
The older, working project is previous to the "auto mirrot/flip" supression (Construct 2 transition from r68 to r69). Does it matter?
