Platformer levels

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Fri Dec 30, 2011 1:27 am

Hello everyone !

Just joined today and I really like C2, I followed a 1945 clone tutorial and now I was wondering, this is a bit noobish of me but, how would I go about making a platformer level? I dont know how the "collision" works with the character, how do i make the character go on the "ground" and follow it along the shape. I'll include an example image, I'm sorry if I'm not clear on this. I guess what I want is a guide line to how to make your level for a platformer.

Thanks a lot guys !

Hey there ok well sorry for the link and thanks.

Ok so i'll try to make this clear haha. I want to know how to make a hill, because the example platformer projects that come with C2 are all square pieces. I dont know how to make a sprite that has a curve in it because images are all squares and i coudldnt make a hill with a transparent background because the character would still collide on top of the image and not on the hill itself. I guess it's a bit clearer ?

Thanks alot for trying to help ! very appreciated.

My solution would be to draw a hill.

Then double-click on the sprite so the Edit image window pops up.

Then you'd edit the collision polygon points so they wrap around your hill.
