Chapter 1. Chess Remove
In last tutorial we've successfully find matched chess in match-3 and L-shape patterns. In this tutorial we will teach you how to remove those chess, drop them down, and add a new row of chess on our board.

Before we start, we need to refactor our event sheet in order to make it a structural design. Please open the capx file which you made in last tutorial, add a <Function> plugin to your project, and edit the following parts:

In the above event sheet we moved match-3 logic into "match3" function, and moved L-shaped logic into "matchL" function and call them every 1.0 seconds. In each of the <Matcher> event, we destroy chess after flashing them for 0.5 seconds. Push <F4> to run layout, now you can see the matched chess are removed after flashing for 0.5 seconds.

1st of all - ^^ THX a lot for the countless plugins which realy helps (me and other beginners) a lot for some understanding and making it easier to follow up a little to our more advanced companions! Im totaly impressed by the spirit and community-thinking in the gamedev-world as far my experience :D ( couldn't find a single "elbow" )

2nd - to optimize the tutorial i'd recommend an additional statement about the

- function return 0 on match 3 (with one of your red squares ^^)

...so if user's learn at latetime's and concentration fades slowly they figure out eventual missing events faster xD

found the return 0 thing only cause i compared the exsample.capx with mine :D ( or i skipped a line while reading oO...possible too )

still... Thank u very much for the effort !!!

May u have luck in life ^___^
