create a help window

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Tue May 22, 2012 8:31 pm

Hi guys,

In my game I have several ways to attack the enemy so I need to create a window to show the "help" like any other game (inside the layout I'm using), I was wondering if C2 has a specific way to do this or do I need to use another layout?

thanks for your help

If you want to display it in the current layout, add a layer to the current layout and turn it invisible/visible on need.
This layer will have to be the same in every layouts where it is supposed to be displayed.

Using a second layout will allow you to go from one layout to another but won't allow you to display a "window" over the first layout/ two layouts at the same time.

hmm i have another idea for example some people put sprites for learning like putting click x now or anything some hand touch blablabla... you can make sprite with all these stuffs with speed 0 and put the sprite where you want and change frame as you want and you can make like a hidden button if player collide with it the sprite comes visible if the sprite is invisible

thanks for your replies.

I'm currently using the free version so I'm really limited with the layers, I'll use the zangerous suggestion.

In a few days I'll upload the game, it's just awesome :)
