stacked arrays match 3 / Candy Crush style game.

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Sun Jan 24, 2016 9:54 pm

Hello everybody,

I am trying to understand using arrays to limit fields of play.
I was reading this http://www.raywenderlich.com/66877/how- ... ush-part-1

where they use 2 arrays to set up the play field and the fill blocks / Tiles

where 0 = empty area and 1 = tile-able area.

where compare cookie = 1 fill tile-able area
where compare cookie = 0 do nothing

Then there is this tutorial that creates a match 3, but does not go into creating board patterns and is just a fill from bottom stacking layer type game.
http://gamedevelopment.tutsplus.com/tut ... medev-9225

which is a nice starting point, But when layer reach top it keeps adding layers. Unlike Candy Crush where file layer stops at all available spaces in array is full.

I know my understanding is limited, but with a basic starting point I can push through this project.
I thought there was a plugin for match 3 style games but did not see it.

Thanks in advanced. Jeremy C.

I would look at using @rexrainbow 's SquareTx and Board plugins.
