Get help using Construct 2

Post » Sun Oct 18, 2015 10:58 am

Hello

something has changed with the google rules.

Its seems impossible to use google map anymore inside an iframe.
Google map API are not free, when you have more than 2500 download /day of your generated map with API key, you have to pay....

My question is:

in my VERY BASIC APP for android

i need to add google map, where the user see his location, updated every 1min.
i need also to show the place where he has to go.

can someone HELP????
the basic geolocalisation sample inside construct 2 don't help at all.

I made this app

Wat is open?

using the Open Streetmap plugin from the plugin section..
It doesn't use google maps, but is an interactive map updated every minute to show which bars/pubs are open in the area I live..

So what you are trying to achieve is entirely possible, but maybe not as easy as one might think..

There is also a google map plugin I think, which might work for you, although I haven't worked with it, so I can't be sure..

I worked on it for a few months..

To achieve it, add the plugin I talked about to your project..
Create the markers on the spots you would like..
Add Date/Time plugin and base the colour of the markers on it..
Add an "on marker touched" to open the corresponding information..

It's all pretty basic once you've got the hang on it..

Go to the plugin section of this forum and download the appropriate plugin..
Fool around with it a bit untill you understand how to make it do the things you want..
Create your app..
