Hello all. First post.
I've been lurking heavily on here since discovering Construct about a month or so ago and have been experimenting with it, and going through the tutorials. Shooter and platform, aswell as the upload sub forum. Now, I've decided on something simple I would like to make and come up against a wall already. Such is life. Hopefully someone can point me in the right direction.
By the medium of crudely drawn pictures, I will explain what I'm trying to do.
On the left of the screen we see our 'hero' and on the right of the screen we see our 'saviour'
Now here we go, what I would ideally like to happen, is the 'saviour' on the right can move vertically within the limits shown by the green lines. The saviour constantly spawns a platform to the position it is at. I say platform, but it could be just 1 pixel. Which then scrolls off to the left of the screen.
The 'hero' on the left I need to be constantly running on the spot, but reacts to the incoming platforms, therefore moving up and down with it. Think, rollercoaster.
That should give you some idea of what I would like to do to get me started. I've browsed this help sub forum and found an OLD! thread
which relates to Linerider, that could be some help perhaps with further experimentation. Any other links people know of would help greatly. I don't mind reading up and don't expect someone to hand feed me the answers. Just a gentle nudge will suffice.
Progress so far
-Managed to get the 'saviour' moving within its limitations
-Spawning continuous moving 'platforms' that a physics object reacts with.
Feel free to ask questions if need, I feel I could have over-egged my post somewhat and please try and keep it as simple as possible for me at the moment. Brain is melting a little from reading some of the threads on here. Loving the creations forum. There are some bloody talented people on here. And I don't know if it's relevant but I'm using 0.98.9
