What did you learn today?

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Thu Aug 07, 2014 10:08 pm

Working in C2 is a learning experience.
A lot of times, we'll have a problem that lingers for days without resolution & all we can do is search & wait. Sometimes we'll have a question about how to do something, & then when we get the answer it turns out we won't need that knowledge again for a long time. Sometimes we aren't even looking for an answer, but something unexpected happens & maybe someone else can use it.

So I'd like to start a thread where we can store all those dumb & cool little things we learned along the way.



I'll start:
today I learned that if you want to upload C2 assets to the new store, they have to be in .zip format.
Phase 1: Collect Underpants.
Phase 2: ????
Phase 3: Profit!

WHY is up to you. I generally use them for organizing a project: background on bottom layer, characters in the middle, HUD on top. But you can do whatever works for you.
