Construct Mentor

  • hi, i am still new to construct and i really want to learn how to using it.

    even after following some tutorial, i still barely understand how to make my game.

    i dont know about programming, and sometimes the template give me such "weird" code for me, like :

    "Create object Turret on layer Game at (round((Touch.X - 16) / 32) * 32 + 16,round((Touch.Y - 16) / 32) * 32 + 16)"

    i am so confused about that formula. my friend said its simple algebra, but i still dont get it.

    i am curious about mentor in this forum, like not mentoring new user everyday, but more like weekend? and give such good direction on what things should i learn to make my game. if anyone in this forum can help me, i am really glad.

  • Yes, expressions can be a bit tricky at the beginning. Don't be scared, because you'll get the hang of them pretty fast. I'd suggest you make a simple game using just plain simple numbers for your first game (for ex.: Create object Turret on layer Game at 320;450).

    i made like one level before of platformer game. it went pretty good (for me). now i have idea to create a simple turret defense game, but sometimes i dont know what to do with the code like i make 2 route for enemy to reach the castle and i make route b is more shorter than route a. i want to enemy a to choose route a, but sometimes it just went to route b. well, i just need someone who can lead me to right knowledge so i can make a progress to my game

  • Ever heard of Udemy?

    It is basically a site where instructors make classes. I have a class that teaches 60 games in C2.

    I just started to take it 3 weeks ago when I bought the license. It is literally night and day from 3 weeks ago from what I have learned. Mostly from making actual games per his lessons.

    Also from adding to those games and making my own versions of them. Simple games, but using a lot of random behaviors. Which is great experience. Plus anything I haven't learned yet a simple google search or forum search will explain everything!

    It isn't free of course, but nothing is. I went out and put this $129 on the credit card within 2 days of buying his class. I knew this engine was legit and was completely and totally worth a mere $129.

    Just make a clone of a game from scratch or as much as you can and you will learn loads of things.

    Have tried to download the C2 examples game? I know there is a turret or something like that game. Might be a good way to see how it works and add/subtract from there.

    I can get the capx if you aren't sure how to do it exactly. I honestly can't remember the exact steps I did when I first did it.
