making a tile based game

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Fri Mar 29, 2013 7:06 pm

I'm looking for a plugin or something that allows me to "paint" on tiles to a layout. i tried using the snap to grid feature, but it's so confusing because i can't actually SEE the grid. I want something like stencyl has, where you just click and drag and BOOM, you have a level. It's really hard to make a good platformer when everything is uneven, so please help!

If you turn on snap to grid and show grid, you can see where the objects will snap to.

Also if you look around at the tutorials you will find projects for making tile maps, etc... in COnstruct. You can also import them from other editors, or create your own fairly quickly like this using arrays: Arrays in Construct 2 Including Tile Map Editor
