Any non-game projects in construct?

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Mon Feb 25, 2013 4:29 pm

Hey guys,

of course Construct is mainly for game design but i wondered, if there are some projects/programs made with C2, that are no games.
Searching the forum, I found a calculator or a timetable software.

What else is possible? Show off if you like :)

Sry for bad english!

I am making a seamless texture creation utility. It makes alpha maps for common textures like terrain textures. Just the masking is done now, but when I am done it will make the full texture.

This one might be good for a tower defense game.

Please excuse the dark ugly colors. I am testing the lighting, and needed a dark base so the lights would show up better. :



It will pop out a matrix file too, so you can easily re-create your custom matrix in your own game.

Yeah I'm interested as well in making "tools" for games directly with C2
I made some "image editing" tests the other day as I was thrilled to discover you could export transparent pngs with the canvas snapshot

I regularly use construct 2 for making level editors for games, even if I'm making the actual game in a different language just because it's so much quicker to develop and is cross-platform.

Haematite, thats sounds interesting. Are there any examples or tutes on the web of this approach, as I would like to create one for myself?

Are you saving and loading the tile data to XML via an array?

@Pode might do a lot of non-game projects.

I'm doing a presentation on A.I. in two days' time, and have used C2 for all the slidedeck and demos: http://www.meetup.com/NorfolkIndieGameDevelopers/events/104596392/

@Sqiddster - the link to your capx is broken - I'd be interested to compare how you set up the project for your presentation (I use one layout per slide, with a global event sheet that controls transitions between slides and some slide-specific event sheets for interactive demonstrations of the topics on each slide).

I did essentially program with C2 - The last one is a shipment tracking app on iphone and desktop (with node) using mainly my plugins (e.g. dropbox for the database)

Passionate developer

If my work helped you to make your project, please consider making a donation :)
