Layout & control events

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Tue Dec 25, 2012 2:33 pm

Hi,

I am getting into Construct 2 at the moment and I started to make a Jump'n'Run for learning purposes.

I've got 3 questions for now:

1. A level of a Jump'n'Run expands mostly to the right, so I need a very big layout if I want to make levels, which take 10 minutes to complete. I read in the tutorials that you should make a 4000x2048 Layout.

When I do that, I end up with this (sorry for big image):



Do I have to resize my objects, which I have so far? I understand that I need a big X value, but for what is the big Y value?

Which size of objects and which window size is recommended?

2. How to get my control events like moving and handling the Players animation to global, so I don't have to put them in each event sheet?

3. How to create an "object group"? For example when I select "Walls" in the object explorer I automatically select all wall objects.Astrosus2012-12-25 16:28:58

1. Yes that looks right for the size layout. No you don'y need much height. You can make your Y equal to Window Height.

2. Create them in a Controller Event sheet. Then include the even sheet into the layout event sheet.

3. I'm not sure what your saying.

What you are talking about is a "Family", which is a function that is only in the Personal and Business versions of Construct2 (Dont quote me on that)
