I've been learning to use Construct 2 for the last couple of months and really enjoyed my time with the software. I'm currently going through Jerementor's absolutely wonderful "Platform Mini-Series" tutorial on Scirra's YouTube channel. His way of making a text box with AJAX and XML looks really neat, but the problem is... I can't get it to work.
The way it should work is this. When player is overlapping a sign, an invisible layer with a text box is made visible. The text box slowly fills with text from an XML file. I can get the box to appear, but not the actual text. I'm currently still using the free version of C2, but I don't think that should have an effect here.
I've gone through my code line by line until I just gave up and made a testing project with the relevant parts copied straight from Jerementor's example capx, and I still have the problem. If anyone could nudge me towards the solution, I'd be really grateful! Even a hint would be appreciated, as right now I'm feeling quite frustrated with this. Thanks!
Since this is my first post on the forum, I can't post any links. You can still download my capx from Dropbox or check out the event sheet (it's quite short) on imgur, you just have to fill the latter part of the address line yourself.
To get the capx, go to Dropbox and then add this to the address line: /s/1nyuadxf2knhvf9/Textbox_test.capx?dl=0
Or to see event sheet, go to Imgur and add this: /lngNzcw
