I am making a platform game level editor for..ahem..no reason and the basic stuff is pretty much done but still I have many problems. Here is the .cap
Please refer to the in game help or the readme file before testing it.
(used construct v0.99.84)
Now, about the problems :
How to make the screen scrollable?, not like that it follows player but when he user is editing the level and he wants to scroll the layout using arrow keys but when he starts the level(to play) the level scrolls with the player, i know it's kind of confusing
one way is to make a invisible sprite with 8 direction behaviour that can help in scrolling but when the level is stopped for editing then the timeScale is set 0 so the behaviour will not respond
How to save the level?, I tried using the save/load function and saving the level and next time the player opens the editor it loads automatically from the saved file. But here the problem is when there is not saved file(i.e the user starts the editor for the first time) the editor works but when the user starts the editor for the second time(i.e there is a saved file from previous time) the temp.exe crashes.
Hope you understand what I want to say.
Right now everything is messed up because everything is controlled by shortcut keys and many times I am also confused while making a level(you don't know how much time I spent making that level in sreenshot)
If you make something nice with the editor, feel free to post the screenshot(please!!)
