Just wanna say hey! to everyone here in the forums and hope my name becomes pretty familiar with everyone who comes here. I first found out about construct a while back when I personally thought it was still a bit too early to use. Now I'm finally giving it a go, trying to learn all I can with plans to create a full, well done metroid/megaman-ish platform game. I have lots of ideas I've drawn/written down on paper and once I become proficient with construct I'm going to get to work on the actual project. With that said, I hope some of you guys can help me with my learning construct and I will be more than happy to have people help me on my future project if your willing to be on my team. Heh...I know it may sound like I'm getting ahead of myself but I'm the type of person if i want something done I'll give my all to see it through!

Welcome to the forums! Out of interest, where did you hear about Construct from?

Don't forget to give yourself the best shot at learning Construct well, try the tutorials, and read up on the Wiki documentation!

And go through Deadeyes Platform Tutorial, probably the best learning resource for what you wanna do.

Hello!

I'm your new friendly neighbour Eyeguy! Some people also call me with my real name Eero. I'm a 21 year old student from Finland. I've wanted to create awesome games since elem. school but never really got into coding. I know some Basic, C++ and now Construct!

I'm loving Construct more and more every second! Amazing work devs!

I'm currently working on a game of mixed genres and I ran into some trouble so I thought I'd ask for help on the forum. This is me saying "Hi!" before I run screaming into the help section ->

Hello,
I'm systemofrm, from France, and I'm 15 years old.


I have a lot of gaming culture, especially in Retro-Gaming.

I found Construct one month ago, someone on ExperimentalGameplay gave the link so I clicked and discover that this free software was way better than MMF2 and Game Maker.

The first Gaming Engine is used was Rpg Maker 95, I was 9 year old.
My first game was made on Rpg Maker 2000, and my second with Game Maker 5, I was 11 years old.

After some tried with others game engines, I started to make a real game, for a Rpg Maker gaming competition, I finished the game in 6 monthes, It was a adventure game made with RM2003, it was nominated in 3 category, but I didn't win anything. I was 13 years old.
I made a demo for the second episode of this game, I inscripted It for the RpgMaker competition, and I'm waiting for the result.

Then I discovered Construct and I'm now trying to make a little experiment ( a shoot'em up ) with it.


Also ... I play guitar, I love Mangas, Rock, Hard Rock, Metal, Ice Tea, read books, draw, soad and ozzy osbourne.


That's all for me.

I'm just this guy. From the USA. 25 years old.

I finally tried Knytt Stories earlier this month. Then I was thinking about making a level for it, and browsed through the forums for the game.
I came upon the topic http://nifflas.ni2.se/forum/index.php?&topic=821.0 . Someone had asked about creating games, and one of the moderators mentioned Construct, as well as Game Maker, and Clickteam's programs. If I were a member of the forum there, I might thank him.
I'm glad I gave Construct a try. I have had some problems with it, quirks or bugs, an occasional crash, but it works most of the time, and is pretty easy to work with.

I've composed music for years for fun, in tracker formats (such as s3m and it). I have also dabbled in graphics. A little in making sound effects, as well.

I have messed with game creation programs before, but never made anything serious.

I started on a game engine of a sort using C/C++, but that was doomed. I was intimidated by properly implementing AI, level loading, and whatnot. Learning the proper ways to do it, finding the right tutorials or explanations. I was too intimidated by it.
What I have with Construct so far is far more advanced, and much easier to work with.
Well, other than being unable to turn on or off MOD music channels, but other than that, it's more advanced. ;)

I've always had fun with old games. NES, SNES, Genesis, and whatnot. I still have some favorite old games. I may not have played them in a long time, but I have fond memories of them.
So, I have began to make my own platform game. It is coming along all right. I need to just keep working at it, and add more things.

Hello guys.

Been lurking around here for a week now and decided to sign up. I've always wanted to make games but always give before getting anywhere, mainly due to my complete lack of artistic skills or complete lack of programming skills. Which thinking about it ain't a good combination for game making. :D

Anyway. Hello again. And expect questions. Lots of questions.
