Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Any chance of someone posting a tilemap tutorial please? I've read through the blog posts and everything else I can find but I still can't figure out how to use it. Thanks for the consideration.

Just insert the tilemap plugin and open the tilemap bar and select the pencil tool. Then you can directly edit tiles inside the area of the tilemap plugin.

Alternatively just drag-and-drop a .tmx in to the layout.

@Alemar - what is the error message?

My problem was that the tilemap bar wasn't showing up even though it was clicked, so I thought I was doing something wrong or couldn't figure it out. I reinstalled construct and this time the tilemap bar is there. Sorry for the confusion (though a more advanced tutorial would still be nice once some more features are added).

Hi Ashley
Well I got import a file I created in Tiled when I drag.The file has just one tileset and 1 layer.But I imported a tmx file to TILED from a program iTileMaps, from iPad.Well it was imported to Tiled nice ( in native tmx) and saved again in Tiled.So I tried drag in C2 but I had this message:
"Error parsing XML file.Check the file is a valid Tiled TMX file."
The file have 2 tilesets and 2 layers.

Can you share the TMX file that did not import? Perhaps there is something in the file format I forgot to support.

I get the same error message when importing a Tiled TMX file. Here is the file: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/16237515/battlefield.tmx

The cause seems to be the multiple tilesets. If I only leave 1 tileset in, it imports the file flawlessly.
