Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Mon Jun 10, 2013 12:34 pm

Hi there,

first, i'd like to apologize if some sentences are gramaticaly wrong since im not a native english speaker.

I'm new to Construct and I took the time to test some things.
I haven't found any content concerning ingame customizable controls, I mean, redefining the keys you use to controls your player in the game.

So I just made a template/example/whateverworksforyou of how i would do it.

Should I submit this as a tutorial ?

Project Example link :

If i could get some feedback on this, it would be awesome.

In the keyboard object, there are some actions like "Key Code Pressed", "Key Code Down", etc. You can use those to redefine keyboard controls in-game.
The keycodes are in Javascript, I believe. You can also use this convenient site to find what the key codes are.

EDIT: Oops... I didn't read through the whole post. My mistake! :P
Personally, I think the example is complicated to read. It's best to keep examples as simple as possible, for instance, a square that appears when you press a key or something like that.Zero62013-06-10 12:54:25

I see what you want to say :)
The project is hard to read because of the "player input" instance, i should just keep the part about redefining the keys.
I'll try working on it when i got some time and uploading a new version
