Yup, I'm actually amazed how well everything is working now.
I gotta say: Construct 2 is amazing software.
I have the first piece of the game ready, exactly the way I wanted and it's working beautifully.
All it needed was a few tweaks.
I was quite upset initially that I did not get more coding help, but it turns out that was a blessing in disguise because in struggling and testing I figured a lot of things out.
