@Jon or Stencyl team, if you commit this fix could you please replace the how to install with something like "Commited to build"?
What do you mean by "replace the how to install with something like "Commited to build""?

I see in the attached Script.hx it uses Engine.stage.stageWidth/Height instead of openfl.system.Capabilities.screenResolutionX/Y. Is that the version I should check in?

I suggest making different blocks for iOS and Android (with different colors or icons) since the functionality is different.  That would make it more intuitive for users and reduce the number of questions asked in this thread.

The functionality is not different, even if i make different blocks the message will still not share with Facebook on Android, because of the facebook bug.
My opinion is that with more blocks it is more complicated than just one block.

If users just read the tread carefully before they ask questions, the number of questions asked will not reduce. But that's jus my opinion.  ;) ;)

I know, but from personal experience, plenty of users do not read/remember/comprehend the documentation before asking questions.  The block itself should make it clear that the message field is iOS-only.

But the message field is not IOS-only, it works also on Android with Twitter, email and other apps, but it works not with Facebook on android.

What I mean is that if you or someone else added that script.hx file into Stencyl to remove the how to install the file in my last post to avoid confusion.

However, that modified file still messes up screenshots if you have a weird game aspect ratio. That's what happened to Unept, so I modified it again as you saw. It still does the same thing for Unept but it's fixed for AdventureIslands so I'm at a loss as of what to do.

Message sharing isn't possible in Android > Facebook? I'm just wondering if I could use RedEvo's FB extension for Facebook message sharing and this extension for twitter and others. The other extension is at:

Just wanted to know if anyone else tried using both extension together without problems.

Okay, I check it in anyway. If you (or anybody) come up with a better solution, just let me know.

Could anyone modify the extension in such a way that it shares message with android fb also? I would badly need it.

What good could it be when developing only for iOS when 70% marketshare is owned by Android?

70% market share may be Android, but I have by far more downloads and activity with iOS. around 400-500X as much.

According to the link posted in the last page, that doesn't seem to be possible using this method.  The Facebook SDK is needed.

Yeah Max... I think I'm also just gonna be concentrating more on iOS. Stencyl is real good and all set up for iOS. Anything you need for iOS? It's already available. ;)

Hey Rob,

I'm a little layman here. Facebook SDK is needed, I understand. But how does that stop the extension from working? Anybody could download Facebook SDK from fb. I already have. Can't this extension just guide us how to use Facebook SDK extension?

May be I'm asking too much. But some spark might strike some master mind by discussing everything right ;)
