I know I've said this before, but please work on your art (or get a friend to do it for you.) You've got great writing, and you can create games, but your graphics are lacking. Maybe look at creating really basic pixel art.

Where do you post/advertise you work?

Maybe start making some tracks that people can use as long as they link to your website.

Have you done the crash course yet?

Something I've done before and might be something to consider.

Have the track/s you need looping and use booleans to change the volume of each. E.g you could have sounds EngineIdle and EngineRunning.

I've done it before. It was just checking if the actor was on the ground. If it was, and was hit from above by a platform then it triggered death. I guess if you want to stop the actor being pushed through tiles, stop the actor that's crushing it.

Game Art / Re: How do you display text in your games?
« on: May 08, 2020, 01:44:16 pm »
For Stencyl I create my fonts in Designer and like merrak I save as png and import it. It's a bit of a hassle to create your first font as you've got go through each character you want, but if you're creating one the same size, but different colour etc. it quick as you can just duplicate a font and replace the image. Once you've made a font be sure to export it so you can keep it safe to reuse in other games.

Ask a Question / Re: What needs to be included in app credits?
« on: May 08, 2020, 06:04:19 am »
The  (C) copyright 2020 [author] needs to include the date for it to be legal.

As what what you HAVE to display, it's mostly up to you.

If you're using assets which aren't yours and use of them stipulates that you must give credit, then you must mention it.

Same with software. If a condition of use is that you credit it, then again you must, but most software won't ask you to do this. Some free software might, I can't imagine any paid software would.

App version might be useful if a player runs into issues they can let you know which version they're running.

Ask a Question / Re: Random selection
« on: May 05, 2020, 11:30:58 am »
Add each actor to a list, pick a random item from that list.

As for terrain, you can use random numbers again and just keep generating a new number. Each number corresponds to a certain terrain layout. I used that technique here - https://www.kongregate.com/games/BowWow200/hot-air-balloon-challenge.

Using 'otherwise if' blocks will prevent that.

The issue is with the grow blocks as they are being run 100 times per second while the button is down. Use a boolean to stop it from triggering more than once.

Here's a quick idea.

The first thing which comes to mind is to have one emoticon and have each state as an animation rather than have loads of different actors. You could then also do away with all those custom events, keeping 'CreateEmoticon'.

You could also have the Emoticon always there, but just show/hide it as needed.

Ask a Question / Re: Ticking Issue Again
« on: May 01, 2020, 05:53:59 am »
When updating events run 100 times per second, so custom events are usually a good way to deal with stuff like this. What you can do here is to set 'Enemy 1' to false immediately before the 'replace item' block.

which programming language used to make a simple game  :)

With Stencyl you don't need to know programming. Though it uses Haxe.

You could achieve the collapse effect with the Image API - http://www.stencyl.com/help/view/image-api

The star could also be done using the Image API, or it could be an actor.
