G'day guys,

Checking out what Construct has to offer.

[ HISTORY ]
Artistic ability:
zero

Coding:
BASIC, QBasic, Visual Basic (many moons ago last used VB6)
VBA (not too strong but I've done what I've had to and still do. Mainly data manipulation)
PHP (Main focus since 2002)
A little Javascript thrown in with the web development of HTML and PHP

Games:
Nothing to brag about. A few small things in QBasic and VB. a Few small JS things. nothing much. Nothing ever realised to the light of day or general public
My lack of artistic abillity in any way shape or form has hindered the desire :)

Life:
Married, 5 kids, had my own business.
I.T. technical background with early on pre-I.T. retail roots.
I also really like marshmallows. The look the texture the smell the name, not as fond of the taste though.

[ REASON FOR BEING HERE ]
A friend saw some web based JS games that I'd done. He has game ideas and artistic ability and we embarked on a game making journey. using Game Maker (which I tried many years ago and didn't care for) because he had already done some stuff with it.
Long story short, a year later I've made more games (unfinsihed and unreleased) in game maker than he has (which is none) and I've still not seen any art from him.
[ Yes yes years of similar crap with other people (programs and websites) should have dictated this would be the outcome ].

Anyway I'm at a stage where I have ideas and have thrown the idea of pretty-art out the window and just want to release some stuff.

Not trying to make a billion. Not trying to make a hundred. Just trying to make some people feel some joy by playing something I've created or been a part of.

Enter my first dip into Construct 2 to see if it opens up paths I've not yet had access too.

Thanks for your time. :*

Hello, I'm Jade and I'm from Scotland and I heard about this software through a google search for easy to use game making software because I don't know how to code by hand so I needed the easy option :)

Welcome to all the newcomers of the week!

As you're all new arrivals, please take a look at the How Do I - Frequently asked questions and Tips for posting in the "How do I?" forum before asking for game creation assistance.

Additionally, there are many tutorials you can start learning with hosted here on Scirra's website.

Again, welcome to the community, and happy developing! :)

about that ... It's hard to do a tutorial (platform) when the graphics aren't available. Is there a similar set of graphics (but not the same), no matter how bad they may look, that are the same dimensions, sizes and have the same tile counts? I can't even make mock ones because that info isn't provided....that makes doing the whole tutorial hard to do. (I have searched for mock ones without success)
