Is python important to know?

This forum is currently in read-only mode.
  • Just wondering, is it important to know python to use construct. I have spent the last year learning the similarly awesome "Lua", and I wanted to know if it is worth learning a new language primarily for construct use. Hopefully it is close enough to Lua that I wont have to go insane learning a new language. Also, what are some good books/sites for beginning python? Thanks, sorry for the amazing amount of questions

  • You can write many wonderful games without Python. So I suggest to do not double your efforts and lean Construct first. Then add Python as needed.

    BTW Python is not hard to learn at all, so do not worry.

  • Thanks for responding so quickly! I will dedicate myself to construct first off, and move on from there. What is a good first project, if you don't mind my asking?

  • Try Construct 3

    Develop games in your browser. Powerful, performant & highly capable.

  • I started making my own min projects. Moving things, checking collisions. I am a big fan about starting small. My fist game is done I am just making graphics for it now and i have only been here a week.

    Ghost shooter tutorial is a very complete tutorial. Do the reading one not the video.

    Also I am VERY excited about deadeye making a new platform school tutorial. The one posted is outdated but he is amazing at platforms, and is updating it.

    ... any hint on time frame deadeye? Fans await

    Good way to put it

  • Yeah, I guess people who know Python prefer to develop games with Pygame and stuff, since it gives them more freedom.

    Also, why do I have the feeling of deja vu? I'm sure I've said a similar statement somewhere on these forums...
