Discuss game development design and post your game ideas

I had a few questions about construct 2 and came here hopefully to seek answers. The project I'm planning on undertaking is a sort of remake, one of the features I wanted to implement was a sort of legacy mode(think like halo anniversary titles and their then and now sort of thing). I wanted to have an option in the in-game menu to be able to switch between legacy and remastered sound/music. would something like this be doable in construct or am I better off dedicating my time and resources to something else in the project.

Also, I was wondering if .SPC sound files work in construct?

The legacy mode could be easily implemented by making sure both sets of graphic and audio files exist in your project, and use a boolean variable to toggle the 2 types. You would just then need an 'If boolean = legacy' then use gfx set 1 and audio set 1.

You can easily try some prototyping using the free version.

Using .SPC (is it SNES audio?) would require a plugin to be created, similar in principle to what Gigatron did for amiga audio - LINK here if interested.

Otherwise, you would need to convert them yourself.
If your vision so exceeds your ability, then look to something closer.
