How do I

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Tue Mar 08, 2016 11:35 am

Hi!

First of all, I´m a little angry with Scirra. . . .I mean, when I buy the tool (Personal Edition, by now), it looks great. . . .simply to code, to test and most of all, one buy will be forever, cause actualizations were included too. And the possibility to export to Coccoon.js was what finally convinced me to buy this tool.

BUT. . .

New version doesn´t allow this kind of export. I try withCordova and with the tutorials, but it doesn´t work at all. No sound or no graphics or both. A great advance, yes. . . . ¬¬

So. . . .how do I do it? And. . . how do I test it on the CoccoonjsLauncher?Can anybody help me?

Thanks in advance.

@Ricci - First of all, there are no shortcuts. You can't just make a game in a day as a beginner, unless you are a genius or at least smart. But I think even geniuses don't complain something they haven't learned yet. I suggest you read the manual first and play around.

Scirra Manual:
https://www.scirra.com/manual

Okay now that we are clear on that, Let's proceed.
I did not try CocoonJS but I tried Cocoon.IO . CocoonJS is an oudated version of Cocoon and the new Cocoon Wrapper is called Cocoon.IO which is more compatible with Construct 2 than CocoonJS. Construct 2 removed CocoonJS export because it is very uncompatible with Construct 2.

But if you really want CocoonJS then click this link:

If you want to be updated with better features and performance then try Cocoon.IO which is more compatible with Construct 2 than CocoonJS. Follow this link:

IntelXDK can also be your option, We heard that a better update will be released this month and performance is better according to the beta testers. But this is only during tests. They are still not sure for the final release:
This is actually for Admob + IAP for IntelXDK build but part of it teaches about how to export for intelXDK.

The Things you can create is only limited by your imagination. If you don't have the skills then use your motivation as a natural force to exceed all expectations. Chadori RebornXD

Hi,

@ashley is doing a great job with C2 and so does @ludei
Mostly it's not an issue from C2 or the choosen Wrapper like cocoonio. There are some stuff to know before starting making games. That's why scirra offers an amazing and detailed manual. Moreove do all Wrappers offer documentation, some have good, some have not so good guides. For this you can browse the Tutorial page or ask in the community for help.
Sometime it's just a little thing like a checked checkbox or a wrong setting.

The community here is awesome and everyone gives his/her very best to help others out.

So just let us know when you stuck or have any question :)

Just use the links above :)

Thank you!

Regards
Andy
