I am making my first game which is a cookie clicker clone. I was using game maker studio up until tonight but think construct 2 may be a better choice for me going forward.
However I can't seem to figure this out.
What I am trying to do is when you click on the cookie object text will float from the mouse x,y position upwards for a second and disappear.
In GMS I could do this via the GML language but I do not know where to start as I see no way of adding scripted events to a Construct game though I am sure there is a way.
Hopefully someone can point me in the right direction.
Just to give you guys an idea of what I mean. in GMS I could create an object and add a scripted event such as:
speed = 1; // set the speed of the objects movement
direction =90; // set the direction of the object. In this case 90 degrees (up)
create_text(mouse.x,mouse.y,"text here"); // create text here at mouse x and y
speed *= .9; // slows the text down every tick until it stops
Then after x ticks destroy the object.
I would then create this object on the right click event on the cookie object. thus creating the text at the mouse location.
