Superhero Game Update: 10-21-12

Screen Capture of the Game in Progress
Hey, an update on the game!  Who would have thunk it?  I was sitting at home on a lazy Sunday and decided to crack open Construct 2 again and see if I could make a little progress on my little game idea.  So I started tinkering away with some rough sketches for flight, jumping, and falling.  I don't have diagonal flight animations implemented, but the default one is working fine for now.

Before I started any of that, though, I downloaded the most current version of Construct 2 (103.2). It had been a while for me.  In fact, I think I was still at 100 or 99.  They seemed to have added quite a bit since I was using the program more regularly, but a couple of things aren't working all.

The main problem is that I used to hit the F key to toggle on the flying (8-way movement) and the character would begin where ever he was when I hit the button.  With the new version, the player will sometimes slide ever so quickly to the left or right a couple dozen pixels.  I kind of feel like this has something to do with adjusting some of the other platform problems.  I'll definitely have to find some work around for it.

I'm uploading a bunch of pictures to Dropbox as of this typing.  I'm hoping to post my (very meager) prototype up tomorrow.
