Creating a level from a JSON

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Fri Jun 07, 2013 7:53 pm

I would like to be able to create a level from an array. It would seem what I need to do is use some external level editor, and then export as a JSON and load that JSON into the array object in Construct. Then parse that array intelligently.

Does anyone know of an external tile editor that would export in a friendly format for a construct 2 array?

I know of Tiled, but I have no clue how hard it would be to create tiles in C2 based on that.

The end goal is to have a few different materials (dirt,stone,metal) that can be created in C2 from an array. (Think Terraria style terrain)

The reason I want to do my level creation this way is to enable me to destroy terrain by editing the array. I've also heard of the Canvas plug-in, would this way of doing my levels play nice with that plug-in?

Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks.
