For questions about using Classic.

If I could understand the meaning behind the syntax and the specifics of what the syntax is referring to then I could understand what I'm doing lol, but yeah, I realize it must not be that hard a problem to solve. What I'm trying to do seems pretty straight forward, I'm just not sure what commands/syntax to use to get construct to do it. I friggin love construct by the way lol. I'm in University going for a BA in Digital Media and they're trying to find an alternative to Flash to use for teaching basic game production and interactive motion media. I think I may have one of the instructors sold on Construct 2 once it gets proper functionality lol

It helps to not think of it as coding, for me its more like thinking of it as an idea, or mental construct.
What you needed was a graduated timer, and lerp does that, among many other things.
So basically all your doing is saying I'm going to put a graduated timer in here, and input the values I want to use.
Or perhaps you could even think of it as a plugin, within a plugin.
The nice thing about Construct is that, that's exactly how it's set up. It can handle all the syntax for you, and it gives you a list via the user interface of all the possibilities.
Think of it like a WYSIWYG, but instead of what you see, its what you think.

Check out the Wiki, there's a list of all the expressions, and luckily if you have any questions you can ask here.
