Have you used our codePop Helper yet? Read on and we’ll explain how it works. We’re really excited about this feature. We think it will enable you to create awesome, fun games, and learn codePop at light speed!
The first step is to turn the codePop Helper on. To do that, click on Beta in the upper left hand corner of your screen. You should now see a screen like this:
Click on the gear icon, and at the bottom of the pop up you will see a box next to the text ‘Codepop Helper’, click on that box. When there is an ‘x’ in the box, the helper is on.
Now that the helper is on, how do you use it?
Firstly you will need to start creating your own level. To create a level type the following. Hint: Don’t name your level levelname like in the example below!
level create levelname
Now that the helper is on, you’ll notice that your terminal has a list of commands under it. When you type, the Helper will pull all applicable commands depending on the letters you type. For example, if you start typing ‘c' - you will see the following commands:
Here’s how that looks:
Let’s use the codePop Helper to change Beta’s height. We start by typing ‘s’ for set. We see that the codePop Helper now provides a list of things you can ‘set’ in your level - beta is the first option. Press spacebar to fill beta into the command. Now you have a list of options you can set beta with. If you type ‘h’ - height will pop up as the first option. Press spacebar to fill in the command with height. Your terminal should look like this:
The last thing you need to do is fill in a number, and Beta’s height will change accordingly. Try it, and don’t forget to mess around with all of the possible commands, there are many!
