Grid Based Movement (non-Mac)

Hey guys,

I know grid movement has been brought up before, but I haven't been able to pull up the grid templates that have been posted. I'm not sure if it's because I'm running the windows version of gamesalad?

I've been using
as a guide, but I haven't been able to get it to work.

    In the guide I'm not seeing where the actor's position X & Y get connected/change according to col and row

    Use a constrain attribute and on the first window self.position.x then the expression in the second window. Add another constrain and do the same self.position.Y

    Thank you. I've been able to figure out how to make it a swipe to move one box in the grid. Now I'm having the trouble of aligning the grid to the background. Any thoughts on how to do this?

    I constrained the character to
    self.position.x to: (self.COL)*(game.squaresize)+(game.paddingside)*(game.squaresize)
    self.position.y to: (self.ROW)*(game.squaresize)+(game.paddingtopbot)*(game.squaresize)

    I followed this from the linked guide from original post. I changed the side padding to be a different attribute from the top/bot padding thinking it would help, but I'm not able to get the character movements to match the background grid. Any help would be great!
