List of ideas/suggestions/feedback

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Wed Dec 28, 2011 11:27 pm

Yes, another one of my never-ending lists of ideas/suggestions/feedback

I already expressed my enthusiasm about C2. During the work on my Game for the latest competition which was my first major C2 creation I've kept a list of things, ideas, feedback, etc. Here it is: (I'm sure that some of these were already mentioned)

- Zoom-in/out issues - When the browser is not on 100% zoom level all buttons and fields get out of position
- Follow-Path is needed. There're tons of use for such feature and each time I need one I copy/paste a formula which is simple to re-create but very long
- When adding/creating a new animation the first line (initial animation) is selected
- Suggestion: Rotating a sprite with CTRL pressed will turn the spire in 90 degrees steps
- Suggestion: In image edit window a "Next/Prev" arrows will switch/browse between different sprites
- Cloning an object with the "sine" behavior will not clone/copy the type of sine the original object has
- On export a project a "Create index.html" checkbox would be great. When I already have a working index.html file and wish to make a small change in the program itself I find myself exporting the project to a new directory, copy the files in the new directory minus the index, or copy the index file to the new directory + deleting the old directory. Such checkbox will save tons of repeated ritual
- Same with "re-create all graphics". When I only changed the direction of a bullet (for example) I don't need the whole project re-creating graphics
- A "Play Sound" when uploading new sounds and/or editing current uploaded files
- Quad changes - The ability to change (during run-time) each of the 4 image quads of a sprite. This can bring a whole new wave of special-FX, add a semi 3D games, etc.
- Return on Key press - On my keyboard it's "Enter". Don't know when was the last time I saw a "Return" key. Since we have people from around the globe maybe beginners with a no-return keyboard will have issue with this
- The need for an "OR" is crucial. I often found myself bypassing the no-OR issue. The simple solution is to duplicate a code section but than one needs to make changes in more than one place
- Each time I'm testing a code the whole upload/bar screen is adjusted to the left. When the whole project is uploaded the frame is centered. A simple "align=center" in the "body" tag will solve this annoyance (I think)

That's it for now. Hope it's not too much :)

Almost forgot: It would be great to be able to press on an object/sprite and have a small event sheet open just for that object.

This way objects can be saved and load in a different project. This will include the graphic and general behavior of the object.

This will also help in building an AI "creatures" library which can be shared by C2 users.

It's the first time I don't get any feedback about my list from high ranks. Is this a hint I should stop making these?

Perhaps Ashley's To Do List has had a stack overflow?

From what I've seen, they always appreciate suggestions. They just might be busy.

We already have far too many suggestions to respond to any new suggestions in a reasonable amount of time, but still I'll try to come back to this list in future.

I didn't ask for a response to each and every point I mentioned, just a "Ok, we saw the list, some interesting things there. Thanks" or something like that :)
