Layout size basics (Noob question!)

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Mon Aug 13, 2012 4:37 am

Hey all!

I'm new to C2 and seem to be having some troubles doing something I'm sure it must be quite easy to do. I Googled my problem but couldn't so I assume it's either a really easy question to answer or just a stupid one. Anyhow:
I was trying to make a tall layout (say, 640 X 8000) to create a game in which the player must fly up to the top of the level, but when I changed the layout size it only expanded downwards. I want the window space (within the dotted lines) to be at the bottom of the level, not at the top. I couldn't find a way to customize the starting position of the screen or the direction in which the layout size may be expanded.

Any help would be appreciated . Thanks!
Camilo.

that outline box is just a guide to how big the games view is it has nothing to do with any actual location within the game
