Construct names compared to TGF/MMF ones

Post your own tutorials, guides and demos.

I don't know if it has been done in the past but, here's an equivalence table comparing the objects/options names in Construct and in The Games Factory/MultiMedia Fusion :

I made it myself and you can modify it.

So, now, if you're looking for something in Construct that does the same work a thing does in TGF/MMF, just look at this table (Excel Document) and you'll find how it is called.

Well, I think I've explained in an understandable way what I mean. :)

Looks good but there is a couple of issues I think "Exlorer" is typoed I believe, and for Construct I think you may have the Run All and Run layout reversed.

Also one thing I cannot seem to find is a very simple and useful tool I used in MMF2 Dev which was the Duplicate command on a sprite or object, I could tell it how many rows, spacing, and how many to put in what rows. I cannot seem to find a similar feature in Construct.

Array paste looks like it could or would be the feature, but I am unsure how to use it if it is. It confuses me badly.

Oh, yeah, thanks! :D I had reversed the Run layout and Run all options.
Well, for "Explorer", I know it's the (probably copyright) name of the Windows Explorer but, in both MMF2 and Construct, it is an instance of that Windows Explorer. (I am right?...) So, I think it's the proper name. ...and anyway, I don't know what else to call it.

About the tool you're looking for, I'm really sorry, I don't know that. I am myself new to Construct (1 or 2 months) and I don't remember to have used such a thing in MMF2 neither. I think the best way to find how it works if it exists is to look on the Construct Wiki ( http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/c ... =Main_Page ) or in the forums.

Euh, maybe it's due to the language cause ...I'm lost.
