Construct 2's 'Event' system may be unfamiliar, or different to what you've used in the past. See the following manual entry for an overview:

Even if it's not directly related to the kind of game you want to make, we also strongly recommend running through the Beginner's Guide to Construct 2 tutorial. This describes step by step how to get going making a game, and should be very helpful for making any kind of game at all.
Be also sure to make a search through the forums. It's likely your question/answer is already posted somewhere.
If you're new and still can't find any answers by yourself, then this is the forum for you!

Help! I did a cursory search of the beginners' forum, but still have a question. I've just downloaded the free version to Construct 2 to see if I can ween myself off of Gamesalad...but I find in the very first platformer tutorial I can't find the files I'm supposed to import into the game, I've searched my C drive for the appropriate png's but the don't seem to be there. It all go very complicated after that 'cause I couldn't follow along with the tutorial.
let me know if I've downloaded the program incorrectly, need some guidance finding the files or they are not available in my version.
Sabotcat - the beginning of the tutorial describes how you need a license to have the files, or you can use the beginner's guide with free assets. Locking this post, please post new threads and don't reply here.
