Tutorials section now has 'Capx examples' category

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Tue Dec 10, 2013 3:06 pm

The Tutorials section now has a new Capx examples category. This is intended for example files to be shared without having to write a long tutorial to accompany it. As with other tutorials, there are rankings, difficulty ratings, searchability and more. So this should make a useful new place to share examples and find others to learn from!

Note the minimum word limit for tutorials still applies. A list of attachments with no descriptions is not very useful for anyone - so the tutorial body should just summarise what the attachment is and does, and a sentence or two on how it works and what it covers. This will make it much more useful for anyone looking for examples.

It's starting off empty but if you've got anything to share go ahead and submit it!

Awesome idea, I plan on adding in all my polished examples soon, and probably polishing up some of the more simple ones and sharing them, too.

A question/suggestion: is there any way to group together similar examples? For example, there are many ways to do an on-screen keyboard, some more suitable than others depending on what people want out of them. I foresee a lot of duplicates or similar examples being posted, but if we could have a way of adding additional examples (with their own author and description) to an existing one, that would help to keep things clean.

@GeometriX - I think you can upload multiple files in to one tutorial. So if you have several very closely related .capx files, you can attach them all to the same submission.

Hey thanks. I think this is a great start of a repository :) I don't feel it's a 100% finish goal. But it's a great server side start :). It's a good idea as personally tutorials should be a learning environment where as CAPX repo's only need a description :)

kudo's on the step :)

edit:
as a suggestion. Only CAPX that are targeted at stable releases should be allowed. As the Manuals only update the new features on stable release. The capx should target the stable releases.jayderyu2013-12-10 15:33:41

That's a great idea. I'll think about pulling some of my examples from the forums and sticking them there.

This is a great addition! There are plenty of examples I've made for people on how to achieve different things, and this would be a neat way to share them.
