signaljacker: I have actually removed the function and was going to return it later, but as far as I could tell it was. I did just figure out how to use layers in their most basic form though, so I wouldn't be able to tell for sure. Thank you though!
Gearworkdragon: I'll have to check it out, thanks! I'll let you know if it works :3
plinkie: I'm really sorry, I'm still fairly new to the whole forum thing (this is my first post thread thing) so I'm not really sure what a .capx would do. ':<
As I have said, I removed the function so I could focus on the main gameplay, as it's not an absolutely necessary part of gameplay, or at least it's not as important as making the rest of the game work at the moment. I wasn't really planning to use the method I'd figured out since it didn't seem to work. I was mainly asking to see if someone else more experienced than me had figured out anything better. I'm still basically a toddler when it comes to using Construct 2, so I really appreciate everyone's help! Thank you all so much!
