Resolved Questions / Making Actors Appear in the Correct Position
« on: November 06, 2014, 06:27:56 am »

So I've created a top down scene, Zelda style, which has the player attached. When he enters a region it changes scene and in the new scene, when he enter's it's region he comes back to the original scene.

My question is this. How do you make the actor appear next to the region when the scene changes, instead of where he's been attached in the scene.

At a super basic level so will need a very detailed explanation of which blocks to use and how to use them.

Any help would be much appreciated. Many thanks

Hi all,

Looking to make a game that does the following:

1. Each day at 1pm (english time) a sprite performs an animation.
2. Each time the animation is different, depending on the day.

Hope that makes sense. Any help would be much appreciated.

Many thanks.

Does anybody know how to use the 'Follow Path' behaviour? It's exactly what I am looking for but don't have the slightest clue about how to make it work. If anybody is able to give any specific instructions about how to use it to make actors follow a specific path would be amazing!

Does anybody know how you could make a track that no matter which direction it goes in, the sprites would follow? It would be important for the different sprites to share the same track.

Ask a Question / Swtiching Scenes
« on: January 09, 2012, 12:16:52 pm »

Trying to have multilple doors that switch to different scenes all in one scene. For some reason every time I try an add another Switch Scene behaviour to the scene it refuses to add another instance of the same behaviour. Am sure there's a way to have multiple doors to different scenes from one scene but am too new to Stencyl to figure it out.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Many thanks.

Ask a Question / Collecting objects, combining them and using them
« on: December 19, 2011, 02:44:50 pm »

Am developing an RPG and would like to learn how to collect objects, combine them with different objects and to use them in different scenes. A simple example might be collecting a key that can then be used to open a door, i.e. a key appears in your inventory, you use it on a door, the door opens and then the key disappears from your inventory. Another example might be to combine bullets with a gun so that you can use the gun to shoot open a chest, etc.

Any help would be much appreciated.
