Tutorial confusion...

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Sat Feb 02, 2013 3:14 am

Hey everyone. I'm using Construct 2 free, but I'm walking myself through the platformer tutorial. I'm using my own sprites, so not having the sprite pack ins't a big deal, but I've arrived at a section telling me to:

"Double-click player. Double-click Set position to another object. For Object, click <click to choose> and pick PlayerBox. Leave Image point as 0 (that means the origin). Click 'Done'."

This is referring to tying the player sprite to the playerbox. However, there is no "Set position to another object" behavior :c.

easy solution.

Event and Action's are not the same.

An Event is a condition as in COMPARING or ON SITUATION.
What your looking for is to "add action"

These
Compare height
Compare width
Compare X
Compare Y
Is on screen
Is outside layout

are an Event condition and not an action.

Be sure to read the manual and how events work alongside the tutorials.

Also please, keep the bumps for at least 24 hours (not 24 minutes) and use the "Edit post" function in the "Post options" dropdown rather than multiposting.
