deadeye is there any hope this tutorial to be completed soon?

this will be a huge thing for users and for construct software, but it still stays the same.

Why hello there, what's this then...?

Why, it's Lesson 6 of the newly remade tutorial!

And that's as far as I've gotten, I'm afraid. I just picked up where I left off a couple of days ago. There have been some problems with working on these:

1. There were some bugs in the platform behavior with collision masks and falling through moving platforms that were keeping me from continuing.
2. I've been really lazy.

After testing things out the other day it seems that the platform bugs have been addressed (thanks, David! :)). Likely they were fixed some time ago, but as you may have noticed I was gone for a while and I hadn't been keeping up properly with the changelog.

As for the laziness, part of that is just inherent in my nature, but more than a bit of it was due to the fact that I was really tired of working on these tutorials. Not only are they kind of a pain to make when I'd rather be doing something else, but changes in Construct have forced me to rewrite the tutorials a few times. I got sick of the stupid tutorials! There, I said it.

Now that I've had a nice long break, I'm going back to continue work on these. I won't be releasing the tutorial until it's completed and I can post the whole thing at once. I have no idea when that will be, but hopefully not too long.

For now, I'm going to go ahead and close this thread. It's out of date, full of obsolete info, and for the past two hundred pages it's mainly just people asking "when will it be done?" anyway. I will start a new thread for the remade tuts when I'm finished.

In short, I am still working on these. I haven't given up. They will be done, eventually.

Thank you all for your patience :)

WoW! That's great. I am still VERY novice at making games, and haven't had too much time to really get into making games. This would definitely be a HUGE plus. If others could come with other tutorials, step by step for newbies that would be a great complement to the manual that's currently being made.

@Azu (and anyone else who's interested).

Deadeye started a new thread HERE that contains his remade lessons 1-5 as well as his old lessons.

Not really that hard to find using search :)zenox982012-01-16 15:33:57
If your vision so exceeds your ability, then look to something closer.

I forgot to comment on this before, but thanks for this conversion. I'm sure it must have been a lot of work and now lots of people can have access to tutorials that couldn't be used for at least a year (Since I joined).

I'll definitely link your post to any beginners asking for help in the future, so once again, thank you!
