I am putting together a kids game and want to cutomize it.
Is it possible to access images in the photo album save the name and use that image as an animation of an actor?

I want to put a picture of the persons face next to their name on the main menu.

Any ideas

Thank you

Jon

This requires an extension and some knowledge of the iOS API - probably best to wait for someone who knows a bit about this.

I think it would be bedder to make this in xCode.
But you have to learn a lot about Obj-c to program it.
I will be a big work to integrate to stencyl, but you can try if you have good time and want to learn it.
It would be nice to see someone insert that much code into a stencyl project.

Thanks for the info.
I use c# .net and have played with Xcode and also with MonoTouch by Xamarin.

When I get some spare time (next year) I will see what I can do and let you know

Thank you

It's probably a 1-2 hour project, actually, for someone who knows the iOS side and can pick up something quickly.

There's already a photo album extension floating out there for NME, just a little work to put the two together. Use Base 64 encoded Strings to pass the data back to NME and instantiate as a BitmapData.
