    I think using the animation behaviour with a series of lighting PNG would be your best bet.

    I was trying to make every instance of lightning random(like real lightning) not using repetitive animations. Like create the lightning with gamesalad

    I don't think you'll be able to replicate that look with the available tools and behaviors in GameSalad. Your best bet, like @Toque mentioned, is to use the animation behavior. Perhaps have several different versions of Lightning animations and randomly choose one to play.

    Here's one approach (demo attached), it's very rough, but if you play around with it you might be able to achieve what you need . . . click anywhere on the screen to spawn a lightening strike.

    @socks Looks like it will help, I will play around and see what I can do. Thanks

    Is there a way to make them go to a specific X position?

    Inside the 'click to spawn' actor change the spawn positions
