For those who want the pre-release non-commented version, it's attached below. Please note that this requires build 7721 or later (last night's as of the time of writing this) in order to have the necessary blocks. Anything older and it won't load.

Okay, the demo has now been fully commented and is now up in the forge. Please note that for the demo to run, you NEED to have build 7721 or later (Justin added in the z-order code block for images in 7719 and fixed a bug in 7721).

The demo itself is a bit bogged down by the menu itself. I tried to make it "pretty", so the coding was a bit bleh. Heck, even making the grid for the pieces visible was a pain in the butt. The good news is that the code for the actual puzzle part is amazingly small. I'd say about 3/4 of the coding was just "bling" and only 1/4 was the puzzle. Furthermore, considering how small the demo is (only two real behaviors), that means the game part is really short.

One thing I never quite realized before making this demo was just how much an image instance really IS just a collision-less (and animation-less) actor. I'll likely be using them a LOT more in my own programming in the future. Also, of course being able to chop up an image in automated ways way pretty nifty too.

Anyways, "Demo Updated Puzzle" is now up in the Forge. Enjoy! :)

It's been a while, but there's another addition. It's not technically a "demo" as I did not comment it (although I did a live commentary on it as I built it; see my Twitch URL in my sig for the video).

The program demonstrates four ways to do grid-based movement, starting off with a simple snapping behavior and ending with how to do natural movement in it; there are four levels of difficulty in total in the one program: "Grid Movement Options"

idk if this topic is dead or not... I wanted to try out the miner demo on the stencylforge and it says I don't have the tileapiā€¦ from what ive heard, that api has been integrated into stencil, so im assuming there's nothing I can do to try the demo on the newest version of stencil, right?

EDIT:
OK nevermind. for any noob like myself trying this demo out. Delete the full scene. Then, edit the drawings(player, coin and tiles) because theres a bug and after downloading, they are actually blanc.

And btw that "missing tileapi" at the beginning actually means nothing
