PLEASE HELP WITH MY DICTIONARY

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Sat Nov 02, 2013 4:18 pm

In a bid to complete my game, i've hit another stumbling block
I know construct is capable, i just don't know how to go about it...
so this is the problem
i need a spell checker... a system that takes the word input and compares it to a dictionary of valid words
i have the input system
and the list of all the valid words in an excel spreadsheet.
i have the csv plugins and i can save an excel sheet in csv..
but how to get construct to search through the csv sheet for the inserted word is my problem
please help!!!

There is a thread or something somewhere that helped me load a dictionary for a game once, but I can't find it right now. No time to dig through my old code right now, I'm heading out to my daughters birthday party.
I did find a couple posts that may offer the same conclusion:

http://www.scirra.com/forum/building-a-wordlist-database-in-construct-2_topic70582.html

http://www.scirra.com/forum/array-performance-need-advice-please_topic55008.html

After you get a word list made, it would just be a matter of searching the list for each word, and if it's not found, flag it.
