What game-tutorial do you need?

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Sat Aug 31, 2013 2:53 am

Hi, it's been a while since I was active in the forums (and with the engine too) and since I will have some weeks off I might give a try on the new features, but since I don't want to develope a game what about a tutorial?

I'm not as experienced as other members here but I like challenges, so if any of you have a idea for a gameplay that hasn't been covered yet post it here...

but please, ONLY GAMEPLAY LOGIC (I know NOTHING about ajax, multiplayer, server-stuff... etc.)

I started my first (and only) tut' because there were unsolved questions on making a fighting game, and although I didn't completed the tut I guess the capx. helped some guys... so that's the idea.

If you can't find help already in the forums post your idea here.



*Type: racing, platform, puzzle, strategy, etc....
*Version: full / free version
*Plugins: native / 3rd party
*any other consideration...


If I get some challenging (but achievable in 2 or 3 weeks) entries I might give it a try. (but can't promise that)

    Some ideas for you:

    Drag and drop -- inventory
    Dialogs
    using functions effectively
    using the debugger
    code reuse
    (look at the last 10 or so betas and see the new features introduced - those probably have the greatest need for tutorials)

    Here are some things that gave me trouble that I have figured out:

    - How to transfer lots of player information from one layout to the next
    (found a forum post suggesting saving the arrays to Webstorage and loading it on the next screen and I went with that)

    - How to interact with two different instances of the same object
    (found a forum post talking about using families and reference Sprite.X and Family.X and it worked for me)

    - How to stretch a background image to remain in proportion yet cover the background when using scale inner or scale outer of a variety of resolutions even when they are resized (like switching a mobile device from portrait to landscape).

    - Differences between windowheight and ViewportTop/Bottom, Y and AbosluteY.

    - How to anchor in the center of a vertical or horizontal side of the screen.

    That's all I can think of right now.

    @triptych anything specific qith dialogues? this is because I searched "dialogues" and found a lot of forum activity and even some example .capx

    What do you mean "using functions efficently/reuse code" , that's just too broad

    @Hutto last time I used the program arrays were "global" so no need to use webstorage, unless that changed with recent versions.

    about interacting with instances, a quick fix is to create a variable (different value in each object) and start the conditions checking for that one... similar to object's ID but I never trusted IDs

    [QUOTE=triptych]Drag and drop -- inventory
    Dialogs
    using functions effectively[/QUOTE]

    I believe there are tutorials on these already.

    If there's anything I would want to see a tutorial on, it would be on creating an AI behavior (and I'm not just talking about the basic, AI pathfinds to player and moves toward player). You can create an AI behavior for a wide variety of genres, but there aren't many tutorials on behaviors because they are generally difficult to create effectively.

    For example, an AI in a platforming game that follows the player, but also stays some distance away from the player so the two sprites don't overlap. For example, if the player moves toward the AI, the AI moves forward past the player so their sprites don't overlap. Stuff like that.Excal2013-09-03 07:00:14
