Multi-character (but one player) game engine?

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Tue Jan 01, 2013 10:07 pm

Hey there, I was wondering if there's a way to make a game with more than one character in play. Like a multiplayer game, but where you switch characters? I've seen something like it before, but it's another code. http://opensnc.sourceforge.net/home/index.php is the homepage of Open Sonic, a game based on this idea. Does anyone have any idea how to make something similar to this in Construct 2? Thanks!

Hey, that's great guys! Both are really great! How did you do that?!

One other thing, is it simple enough to make them... interact with each other? Such as bouncing off each other like in New Super Mario Bros. Wii?

1.) They posted the .capx files. You can see the events there, so you know how they did that.

2.) Yes

I really like how those work! I've recreated those myself, and it's actually simpler than I was expecting. Who knew? Anyways, the next step would be to have them help each other out. (What I was imagining was that there were 3 characters, a fast one, strong one, and one who can fly. They could interact in ways like the strong one throws the flier, the flier picks up the runner, etc.) I'll see if I can make these, but I'd like some help if you guys are willing!


... how did you guys upload your CAPX's? I wanted to share mine, but I don't see how to do it.

You need to use an external host, most of us use dropbox (free). There are tutorials on the site on how to upload a file to dropbox, after your file is uploaded you just share the link on the forums.

If you're looking for a way to have your characters follow the currently active character, check out the "How do I - FAQ" thread in this sub-forum, I'm pretty sure there are some examples there.

Oh, I get it! So if I upload it to Google Drive, set it to "Share with anyone with a link", and then paste it HERE...

... anyone can download the file! Thanks!

<15 seconds later...> Ok, maybe it wasn't just like what you guys did... :PSonicSuitMario2013-01-08 04:35:10
