Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Sun Jul 01, 2012 8:01 am

One last thing before I bore you all to tears. I have an idea. As a community here...how about everyone get together on a group project, called the "learn construct" game. A video game, for teaching construct!
Geeze did I just fall into a worm hole? You will never get out of my layout sheet alive my little pretty!

Thank you Zsangerous for the array example. I do not understand how to convert the line you wrote...
   " about array x = variable1, y = variable2 , value = many values ^^ "
into a functioning property in the layout sheet. Now please understand I am not asking you to explain the line to me. However this is an example of where there is a bit of a breakdown for me. I dont know if any of you guys know of Bucky Roberts at thenewboston.org He does an awesome job of explaining the major functions etc. in his js tutorial series. So following his tutes I can do stuff in text editors, I just need to figure out more about how to integrate lines like your example above into Constructs layout. I think that I learned a lot so far from the manual, but by far I learned the most from the example files included with the program, and the capx files generously posted by many of the users here (you all rock for that!). Retro engineering those files has helped me to learn more than anything else so far.

Oh yeah Ashley, in reference to your comment about the contest I have an important question. Is the contest restricted to "you tube" posted videos, or will videos from other hosts be welcomed? Can I use my own server? Can the contest video be included in a capx? Wow imagine embedding a small video into a capx file, the video can explain things while the capx file can do a live demo. all wrapped up in one file. I would love to see someone try this, maybe with a little array demo.

The videos must be submitted to YouTube. It is up to you how you make the video, you can use your own server, capx, embedded video, etc... we simply rate the finished video.
