Hello there,

I work at FTL Labs  and we have a touch table called Playsurface. You can check out the project here:  http://www.playsurface.org/

8 months ago, we have decided that one of the ways to create apps for Playsurface should be Stencyl. For this purpose, we have started working on this extension. Now it's ready to show the world.

The extension is attached (Version 1.361).

Repository including the latest version: https://bitbucket.org/talhakaya/playsurface-stencyl-extension/downloads
Documentation: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1-tZa1kEoAcZqU4xJKF59Py7F5_8IFnIwvj5b0k51pms
Demo projects: http://www.playsurface.org/index.php/stencyl-projects

Basically, this extension adds blocks that add new functionality to mouse input blocks, make them work on the table. We have neat features like:

* Multiple touch gestures like scale, rotate, drag actors
* Drag an actor and throw with inertia
* Drawing shapes from multiple touch points
* Touch width, size, area, angle detection
* Actor-touch binding
*Actor-shape binding

The extension includes more than 50 blocks and it's very flexible for all kinds of applications.

The Playsurface family hopes to collaborate on this extension with the Stencyl creators, and support each other.

Thank you for the comments.

No, the extension works with three inputs: mouse input, Windows 8 touch input, and Playsurface input. Adding the other platforms is too much of a overhead right now, but the future plans might include them.

I mailed the Stencyl guys through the contact section of the site, but they haven't mailed back yet. I wonder why. Maybe I should mail them again?

Try to email him again !!
I bet if this plugin would work for android/ios it would get many many downloads.

Cheers !!

Looks fantastic, would love some of this functionality to work on IOS or other platforms.

Maybe some of the touch ID ideas  rolled in to the main blocks in some future version Jon?

Brilliant and great documentation ! I won't be able to use it in my actual project  but I 'll test them when I 'll be able to get my hand on a windows 8 :)

We're happy to include this extension on our website, but we can't put it up on StencylForge, which is strictly for toolset extensions.

Could you supply an icon in the format we use on our extensions market?

Thanks for the replies, we'll be looking into iOS/Android support in the future.

Jon, here's the icon for the site: https://i.imgur.com/dqEw8CL.png

I updated the extension to have the 32x32 icon too.

Tell me if you need anything else
