Construct RTP

New releases and general discussions.

I think distributing a graphics library is a good idea for beginners and helping people to learn how to make games. Nobody is forced to use a graphics library if one is provided, so the rest of us can safely ignore it :P A sound library would be especially useful, since good sound effects are hard to come by. But that's exactly the problem, good decent sound effects that I'm allowed to redistribute, as well as graphics, are hard work to find. If somebody knows a good pack that would be suitable, let me know...

i'd be in favour of a resource pack, i often think of ideas for interesting things but i never get around to implementing them because i'm missing other components that make up entire games lol

@dhondon: awesome website, i've only listened to one of them (human>indoor crowd) but just from listening to it, i imagine in my head how much livelier a game would be!

Or we could have a section of the forums which hosts images or code for use in Construct projects and Construct can have a built-in browser/search for them which downloads them right into peoples projects. This would allow people to add/update their own graphics to the collection without a need for a new release of the graphics pack. Of course, this would also take Ashley alot of work and server bandwidth to setup.

I agree that is an awesome site dhondon, thanks for sharing :) That should make a good source for the resource pack. The resource pack should also include where the original resources came from so users can find additional resources more quickly on their own.

Soundsnap is a great site, thanks for the link! I'll see if at some point I can get in touch with them and sort out a sound library to ship with Construct.

I have not tried this yet, but, if Construct supports MIDI audio, I could make simple tunes for it. :roll: It's actually starting to sound like RPG Maker all over again.

Maybe we should have a folder structure thought up for when we start compiling the resources?

Directsound can play MIDIs with the Play Music action.
