How do I play a cutscene only once?

Just started using Construct 2? Post your questions here

Hi I'm Michael. I'm using Construct 2. I'm new to Construct 2. I've only had it for a week. I am trying to create a cut scene with a character talking explaining how to play the game. That would happen right after the loading screen. Example) 1# Intro) 2# Main menu) 3# Loading screen) 4# Cut scene) 5# Game) My main goal is to make the cut scene happen only once. So whenever the player exits the game and jumps back in the next day. It would take them to the Intro, Main menu then the Game. Instead of playing the cut scene over again each time they play the game. What I'm trying to say is how can I skip the Cut scene layout? I've looked everywhere. Is there anyone that could give me a beginners guide with pictures or whatever you could? I could really use some help Thanks :)

you need to learn how to use local storage, then link to it a variable that you can use as condition to play your tutorial only first time.

Hi @MichaelZeber
Did you ever get this working and how did you make your cutscene?
