so i just downloaded the free version of construct 2. i opened it and started following the tutorial and, i put in a tile backround but theres no Background Image\Background.png file anywhere? im so stuck and its horribly frusterating. someone please help me. :P
actually there are no files for anything at all ?_?
You have to provide the media. There are some files found in the examples but everything else you will have to make/source yourself.
A quick search on the forums will provide you with what you need.
oh. i see... (Not really).
how do i make my own things?
When you add a sprite there is an editor built into C2-
Or you can use software outside of C2 and import it.
You can get all this information from the manual:
Develop games in your browser. Powerful, performant & highly capable.
I followed the Ghost Shooter tutorial, and it provided all the graphics I needed - in the tutorial. I simply had to right-click the images and save them, and then import them into the editor. Or you could perhaps open an example project?
Best way to start is by downloading images from the internet onto your desktop.
Then just drag them into construct 2.
To make your own images, I recommend Photoshop. But to be honest, I would just use internet sprites until your game is half decent.
Well ... You need to import your image file to the image editor ....
Just double-click on your tiled background and the image editor will pop-up ...
No need to start off by trying to make your own graphics or by scouring the web for sprite packs!
The Construct 2 free edition also comes with a free graphics bundle (freebundle.zip) that includes this folder path:
\Sprites\Space\Backgrounds, and that folder has the missing Background.png file that stumped you. In the email you were sent with your licence file it should also have a link to download these extra resources.
I am having this same problem, and I do not see this freebundle.zip, nor do I have a link to download these resources in the email that I recieved when i bought the personal edition. What am I supposed to do to get said graphics?
