I'm making a game with a fairly simple level layout (two block types, a player, 2 enemy types, and an exit).
I'd love to be able to just design the levels in a text format using arrays, rather than having to use the Construct 2 editor and a ton of Layouts. Similar to the way Derek Yu made levels for Spelunky if you've seen the Indie Game the Movie extra scenes.
I know the basics of using arrays and could probably figure out how to pull the data from an array to put all the bits in the right places.
The thing I don't know is how to use an external text file to create the arrays in the first place, and import that data into Construct.
The Arrays for Beginners tutorial talks about saving JSON files, but it seems like that's more for once you have your game uploaded to the web, rather than just for the actual local development. Maybe I'm wrong??
Any help is greatly appreciated.
