I really like the kit!
My son started working on his first game last night ;)
I actually didnt notice the read me and could set it up without but i think the readme is great.

Some feedback:
Keep up the good work!

Ah yes, i changed that link on my website. Thanks for the headsup!
Ill add it to the next update. The reason I didn't do so was because the position of the player could be anywhere. What do you think a out spawning the player on the checkpoint flag, with a set offset? (Negative offset would spawn the player left, positive would spawn the player right of the checkpoint)

My suggestion for the checkpoint thing: set the saved position as the base (Y position + height of checkpoint) of the checkpoint. If you also store the height of the player actor or find a way to automatically get it, you can respawn it without the player being inside the ground. I use this method when accounting for actors of different sizes.
Working.

Yeah that was the plan. Most of the intractable in this kit work from the bottom position anyway.

Recomendation for a more expensive kit.
Adding:
  • Enemy behaviour (walking, firing)
  • Health bar for player
  • Let player fire at enemies
  • collectbales (coins, health)

That will be in other kits I am developing that work with this one =)
I am currently in the development of multiple behaviours that will not only work with each other without any problems, but also makes it easy to expand on by users themselves.

It only took about 4 years for someone to start doing this, this is why I became interested in stencyl. Please make good ones.

I started doing tutorials 4 years ago, but I thought why not take away the struggle and just put up a quality product instead haha. You can definitely expect more!
