How do I create an advanced effect ?

  • Hi, guys

    I found many effects here

    I really like them and I also want to make an effect for me. I see 2 files .fx and .xml, so I think it's made by software third-party and C2. Can anyone tell me how I create an FX effect?

  • 1. You need to install those two effect files to "Program Files\Construct 2\effects" folder. For example, C:\Program Files\Construct 2\effects.

    2. Once installed, you can access the effects in event sheets. Go [System] -> (Under Layers and Layout) -> Look for entries that have purple FX icons.

    Try downloading Alpha Threshold Effect and experiment with it.

    Thanks for your reply. You misunderstood my question. I want to ask the way to create a fx effect, not run it

    Sorry, my poor English is main cause for misunderstanding

    You're welcome, gameba. <img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_mrgreen.gif" alt=":mrgreen:" title="Mr. Green"> Oh, no. It was me who misunderstood. (Sorry about that. <img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_mrgreen.gif" alt=":mrgreen:" title="Mr. Green">)

    Both .fx and .xml files can be opened by Notepad, and you'll notice the .fx file is basically a programming code.

    Here's a tutorial that explains how .fx and .xml files work, and how other pre-existing codes can be converted to C2's fx and xml format.
