Construct 2 Functions

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Thu Dec 22, 2011 12:24 am

Hey guys,

Just being messing around with Construct, and I really like what is going on in here.
I come from a programming background, mostly game programming, so i'm used to having to write some code in order to have something happen.

Got two questions really aimed at the developers of Construct.

1. Is it possible to have a scripting language or section implemented into the Construct 2 Engine, it is probably not a necessity but it could be similar to the event sheet itself, or something separate.

2. Creating custom functions in Construct 2, one thing i've gotten used to is creating functions in order to repeat mundane tasks, is this a possibility in Construct 2 ? or is it a planned implementation.

If number 1 isn't planned, no biggie really because the event sheet sort of works like a programming structure.
However for number 2 it would be great if you had the possibility to make functions/methods to repeat tasks.

Nice, maybe I should have had a look at the plugins section first .

Thanks for this, i'm going to have to look into making my own plugins aswell.

For the making of plugin, and hence using JS as scripting language, be sure to check the SDK manual.

Nothing, the plugin was made before there was an official one. Rexrainbow himself says in his thread that users should no longer use it

This thread was originally posted in 2011, long before the official Function plugin was introduced. I strongly recommend you use the official Function plugin instead.
