Arduino plugin — Now for sale in the Scirra Store!
https://www.scirra.com/store/game-making-tools/arduino-plugin-1993

Control Arduinos with Construct 2. With this plugin you can access the input and output pins of any Arduino compatible board to create games and applications that interface with the physical world.

How about games that interact with desk lamps, fans, curtains or maybe aim lasers - or why not water gun turrets? Or games that you control with potentiometers, sliders, your proximity, heart rate or whatever sensors available?

The Arduino plugin lets you set all digital output pins (high/low), PWM pins for analog output (eg. to control servos or dim light), and read all digital and analog input pins - on any Arduino compatible microcontroller connected to your USB-port.

No Arduino programming skills required. Just upload the included Arduino sketch, run the included server program locally on your computer - and from now on all is done with Construct 2.

You can also use this plugin on mobile devices. Just make sure they are connected to the same network as the computer plugged to the Arduino.

Hi Delgado,

The hack shown in the video seems to use the serial interface on the Arduino. For now, this plugin does not have support for the serial interface, but we’ll take a look at it and try to implement it.

Hello,
How does Construct 2 interface with the Arduino? Bluetooth? Wifi?

This plugin looks very promising!

Hi @jasmattkrz

The Arduino has to be connected to a COM-port (via USB) on a computer running the Construct 2 page. Then - if you wish - other computers or mobile devices can also access it via the local wifi network.

Hope that makes sense.
BR, Jan

Yes, that makes sense. Thank you!

Is it possible to read the tutorial PDF prior to purchase? I'd like to get a better grasp on the plugin's capabilities and workflow.

Hello friend, with your plugin , I could read the temperature (LM35 or another) from a sensor in arduino ?
My idea is to make a "heat meter", to emulate a "Happiness meter" , for an event.
