In light of some good contributions lately (midnight, deadeye) I've been updating the beginner resources on the site. I realise Construct can be intimidating and appear complicated to beginners, so I'm trying to make the starter resources as good as possible. So if anyone has any suggestions for improvements or changes, let me know!
I've changed the Learn section of the site a bit:
There's also a new URL for the tutorials section:
This directs to the Tutorials page on the wiki, but that's a pretty complicated URL. If you want to show someone some tutorials, that URL should be quick & easy to give them.
I've listed some example .caps on the tutorials wiki page as well. If anyone has or remembers any particularly good .cap files (eg. from the uploads forum) which are well commented and useful to beginners, let me know and I can put them up there as well.
