triggers?

This forum is currently in read-only mode.
  • I have been using Construct for a bit, but I still can't figure out how to make triggers.

  • What kind of triggers are you trying to make?

  • Hmm, 'triggers' is a bit ambiguous. Any condition->action group could be considered a trigger.

    I'll take a stab at what I think you might refer to. In many games, the player walking over a certain spot might trigger an event, or some similar thing?

    For example, a hidden trigger spot can be made by making a sprite to serve as the trigger point, setting it to be 'invisible on start', giving it a private variable 'triggered', then setting a couple of events like so:

    + player: player overlaps trigger

    + trigger: Value 'triggered' Equal to 0

    -> trigger: Set 'triggered' to 1

    -> (do stuff that only happens once, unless 'triggered' is set back to 0)

    OR... for duration effects and such:

    + player: player overlaps trigger

    + trigger: Value 'triggered' Equal to 0

    -> trigger: Set 'triggered' to 1

    -> (do stuff that only happens right when triggered)

    + trigger: Value 'triggered' Equal to 1

    -> (do stuff that keeps happening until you set 'triggered' back to 0 to reset the trigger, or perhaps 2 to make it a one-time only effect)

    Anyway, if I'm way off the mark, you may want to explain in detail what you want to achieve.

  • Thanks for this Silent C. Whether it's what redwhizrd is after or not, it's something I wanted to know.

    Thanks again.
