Hi i'm new here. i downloaded this game/kit and loaded it in stencylworks v1.0 however when i try to test the game , it keeps showing a syntax error for every behaviour. I know other users have this issue but i thought it was because they were using the newer versions of stencyl. Any help is very much appreciated.

Correct, it is because you're using a newer version of stencyl. End of.

I may try to fixer up for new versions of stencyl when I begin multiplayer development for Renewal. But that's still awhile away :S

Posting the error message would help us solve this. We can't do much if we don't know what the error is.

Aha, take a quick guess. You've probably deleted a } character or added in a { character by mistake.

I have attempted to fix it, but keep running in to new problems. So I have started developing a multiplayer kit of my own using a MySQL database with not much success so far. However if it does work out, I'll try to share it with you all :)

Well I guess I can take back what I previously stated. I have come up with a new working method to set up multiplayer for Renewal. It should work for anybodies games, but it's going to very 'intact' with Renewal, and therefore I would only be able to explain the process and probably not upload it as a set to to use.

If anybodies wondering for their own use, try POSTing data to a PHP file that is hosted online as well as a TXT file that is hosted online, then you use the PHP through stencyl to constantly update information such as a players x & y co-ordinates and which direction they are facing etc.

If this electrotank multiplayer kit is still working for you however, stick with it because it is alot easier to use. My method is being used just so I have complete control and knowledge over what is happening! :P

Are you sure you're working with the right behaviour? The error is occurring in Scene behaviour 18, so make sure your working with the right one :P Because the issue has to be that it's missing a "}" at the end? :S
