Hi ,

Is it possible to take an rss feed and use it as a variable in Stencyl? for example, to change a background from daytime to nighttime depending on the time provided by the feed?

Many thanks


Kieran

There's the "Visit URL" block in the Game -> Web palette. You should be able to retrieve the data and then parse it. I don't remember how RSS data is formatted. If it's XML then there is a FAST extension you can use to pull what you need out of the data.
