Using PNG file as sprite in construct 2 for a map

  • Hello: I am in need of a mapping answer :).

    Prerequisites:

    I am using Game-Map Generator from GraphicRiver.net for Photo Shop. $15

    Outstanding script plugin. Now then:

    ====================================

    I create my game map. Oversized say: 2560 x 1920.

    Then down size it to 1280 x 960. In case I would like to expand it.

    Export {save} it as a .PNG file as maybe 16bit.

    It is then used as a Sprite in Construct 2 for use a Game Map.

    OK, now you have the gist of what I am doing.

    ----------------------------------------------

    [Q] Is it wise to bring in that map as a sprite object?

    [Q] Will it use up too much time loading? (there will be several used)

    [Q] Will it consume too much resource(s) and cause the game to eventually

    Fail?

    The game will be used at first on a PC & or MAC. But PC for right now.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Thank you so much for you time and thought.

    you wont have any trouble with images that size. I have a project with 7 large picture (1920x1200) and it loads fast, and had no trouble on my ipad or iphone...

  • Hey AllanR: Want to thank you for the post!.

    I had a feeling that if I created a full map,

    less player and interactive objects - It should not

    be a problem. But just wasn't sure enough.

    This is an awesome editor for creating most! any style game.

    I feel confident in going forward with a multitude of creative map

    designs. I know that keeping the tick event is so important.

    Control the events and you control the game!

    Well! Now the only limitation of course; is ones imagination!

    Just so stoked. My game is a copulation of RPG; Adventure; plus a puzzle

    solving journey that has the attention of the player needing to actually

    read what is presented to them for the clues they need.

    COOL!

    Thank You so much for you time.

    Appreciated Much.
