Doodle Jump Template need help

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Sun Oct 20, 2013 2:31 pm

Hi, I originally was going to try a fruit ninja type game but as a rank beginner I was in over my head so I decided to use the doodle jump template and play around with the elements and learn from there.

I loaded a background tile 500, 447 to tile but it seems to blow up the image and only half of it is on screen as it is too big then it does not tile it vertically. The little fellow just jumps beyond it and keeps going.

I know I must be doing something stupidly simple wrong.

Any help is appreciated.

Select the tiled BG, set the size to what you need. It will only tile for as high as you set it there.

Here is a screen capture:

(Sorry about the space for some reason it won't let me post hyperlinks)
Notice how it runs out of background. I would like to lock in that background and have on a different layer other elements that would scroll by as you jump like doodle jump has.

So far so good, now I'm trying to add a 'boing' sound effect when the player lands on a platform and bounces to the next.
I've imported the sound but can't figure out how to attach it to the players actions.

Thanks for the help.

add audio to the project, add audio action to play the sound at the appropriate place in the events/actions

O.K I used another online converter and the sound is working now. Now I'm going to try and make some breakable platforms. Thanks for the help. I'm sure I will be asking a bunch more questions.

Trying to add another sound for falling off the screen but I can't seem to add it in. What are the steps after importing a sound to add it. I tried as an object but that did'nt work.
