Layout & control events

  • Hi,

    I am getting into Construct 2 at the moment and I started to make a Jump'n'Run for learning purposes.

    I've got 3 questions for now:

    1. A level of a Jump'n'Run expands mostly to the right, so I need a very big layout if I want to make levels, which take 10 minutes to complete. I read in the tutorials that you should make a 4000x2048 Layout.

    When I do that, I end up with this (sorry for big image):

    <img src="http://s7.directupload.net/images/121225/wybfzrn9.png" border="0" />

    Do I have to resize my objects, which I have so far? I understand that I need a big X value, but for what is the big Y value?

    Which size of objects and which window size is recommended?

    2. How to get my control events like moving and handling the Players animation to global, so I don't have to put them in each event sheet?

    3. How to create an "object group"? For example when I select "Walls" in the object explorer I automatically select all wall objects.

  • 1. Yes that looks right for the size layout. No you don'y need much height. You can make your Y equal to Window Height.

    2. Create them in a Controller Event sheet. Then include the even sheet into the layout event sheet.

    3. I'm not sure what your saying.

  • 3. How to create an "object group"? For example when I select "Walls" in the object explorer I automatically select all wall objects.

    What you are talking about is a "Family", which is a function that is only in the Personal and Business versions of Construct2 (Dont quote me on that)

    (Go ahead and buy Construct2 to yourself as a late christmas gift. You aint gonna regret it)
