PROJECT: MegaMan X Clone
PURPOSE: One stop shop video tutorial series on creating a side scrolling shooter.
TLDR: This is going to be a full blown MegaMan X clone, all for education purposes. I will be recording tutorials as I create this game piece by piece. Once the game is finished I will be uploading the videos to Youtube. I will also be making all the assets used and CAPX available for download. I know alot of people, specifically new users to Construct want to make a MegaMan X quality game. The information is out there, but it's currently fragmented into tons of forums posts, tutorials, and manuals. I plan to create a single video series that covers everything that you may want to do in a side scrolling shooter, all available in a single place, all assets, and all code ready and waiting for you.
Run & Gun
Charging Your Shot
Enemies of differing varieties
Saving & Loading
XBOX Control Integration
These are a few of the things my tutorials will cover and will expand as I work.
Here I will be updating Screen Shots. The latest build of the game will be available below. This game is currently set up for the Xbox 360 controller and Keyboard input.
XBOX CONTROLLER: D-PAD to Move, A to Jump, X to Shoot.
KEYBOARD: Left, & Right Arrows to move, X to Shoot and Z to Jump.
Currently I'm hoping to get feed back on the controls. How they feel if they are to slow, clunky or don't match up to the actual MegaMan X.
2/14/2015: Included the charge shot system. Adjusted movement speed and jump height. Fixed buggy control code.
