Ask a Question / Music playing Issue - Windows/Linux
« on: May 31, 2016, 01:30:02 pm »
The issue I'm having is only when I test my game in either Windows or Linux. Flash works great.
Stencyl version: 3.4.0 (beta3)

So have a trigger event in behavior block that runs in the create event for the scene. The event in the behavior checks if a new song should be played and which song based on what I selected for that scene. Unfortunately, no music plays.  :-\

I tested just playing the music when the scene is created and that works, but the setup I have allows me to set the music for the scenes easier as well as easily allow a "loop song" to play right after the "start song" within the same behavior.  I also added print to console blocks to the behavior and it seems the event is never triggering in Windows/Linux. So can I not run a trigger event block on a create event? If not, could anyone give me another solution for the outcome I want? Thanks!

Resolved Questions / Windows Compiling Issue (Atlas issue - Solved)
« on: May 30, 2016, 03:14:33 pm »
My issue is that my game will not compile correctly on the Windows platform. Everything works great in Flash, but when I try to compile to windows only my actor (player) is shown surrounded by the background color for that scene. The background image and tiles don't appear, and the other actors seem to be just one tile big white squares. Collisions are still there for the tiles and actors and  one of the "white square" actors move automatically like it is supposed to. I can enter door regions and scenes transition still so this appear to be only visual compiling issues? No error logs are generated when the game compiles either.

I'm on Windows 10 running the latest 3.4.0 beta 3 version of Stencyl. I tried to install the last Visual Studio 2015 and the Common Tools for Visual C++ 2015 suggested in this post:,47294.0.html then I restarted and tried again with no success.

Further information: This seemed to happen slowly, because yesterday when I tried to compile to windows everything appeared correctly I just noticed the music did not start playing when the scene was created like it does in flash, and also a group tiles from a new tilesheet were not appearing in another scene. Then today it just started with everything not appearing visually correct. I'm currently downloading Visual Studio 2015 on another computer to test if it could be an issue with just my computer or if it's actually a stencyl issue.
I attached two screenshots of the game compiling in Flash and in Windows. Please let me know if you have any suggestions.

Ask a Question / [Solved] Game is crashing transitioning scenes
« on: May 07, 2016, 07:35:55 pm »
I'm getting a stack overflow error. What happens is I have code blocks setup to enter a house and then basically the same blocks set to enter a different room in the house. Entering the house works fine, but going into the other room or trying to return to the previous "outside" scene crashes the game. I had this working fine, and I don't believe I changed anything. The only notable thing I did to the game since the last time it worked was delete/rename some sound files, but none of the scenes are using those sound files. 

The first picture is the code for entering the house, and the second is entering the kitchen.

Bug Archives / Background images have to repeat?
« on: May 04, 2016, 12:22:15 pm »
I'm trying to use a background image instead of having to create a large tileset for rooms inside a house. I have a large background image (2240x1600) and I created a scene with the same dimensions. My screen size is set at 1280x800. When I test the scene my actor doesn't start where I placed it and trying to control it runs in to what seems like invisible walls.

However, when I enable to repeat the background it works fine. Does my screen size matter in this case, and why would the background need to repeat if it's the exact same size as my scene?

Dialog Extension / Data Structure : Unexpected Problem error
« on: May 01, 2016, 03:49:47 pm »
I can click Data Structures under the extensions section on the dashboard, but if I click any of the data options I just receive an unexpected error. The Dialog extension seems to be working fine it's just the Data Structures. I attached logs for the errors.
