Chit-Chat / Guide: How to Convert your .aab file into .apk
« on: January 26, 2020, 11:54:10 pm »
Recently, Stencyl released an update which compiles games  into .aab files instead of the usual .apk because Google Play requires .aab android bundle file be submitted rather than .apk in order to release your app.

This is a guide on how to convert your .aab file into a .apk for manual testing, or creating download links for testers.

1. Make a folder, anywhere, titled "ConvertAPK"

2. Publish your game to android, it will be published as a .aab. Place the .aab in the "ConvertAPK" folder you have created.

3.. You must download Bundletool from github.

4. Place bundletool.jar in the created folder, ConvertAPK

Go to your folder, ConvertAPK, and shift + right click and click Open Command Window here (This might require a separate tutorial to open the command window here).

6. In the command window, type this and replace the bolded text.

7. The command window will then ask for your keystore password. Your typed password won't show up on the cmd prompt. Type it in and press ENTER.

8.  The command prompt will then publish a .apks file to wherever destination you choose. Rename it to a .zip.

9. Extract the .zip somewhere, and your .apk file will be in the standalones folder.

10. Fin.

Ask a Question / Origin point of a shape when rotating on a leg
« on: June 21, 2019, 03:06:39 pm »

I have a star that I want to tilt on the bottom left leg
but when I rotate it completely to the OTHER side, I want it to tilt on the OTHER leg, not the same one

How would I go about doing that?


Back to School Prison Edition

I am a 17 year old app developer and honestly, I'm disappointed with our current education system. Thus, I decided to make a game out of it called "Back to School: Prison Edition". It's available on both Android and IOS App Stores.

Back to School: Prison Edition is an addicting game where one tests their reflexes in a satirical classroom setting. The concept is quite simple, the goal is to dodge books and rack as many points possible by staying in motion and catching fidget spinners. Yes, you read that right. A fidget spinner is worth 10 points.

Each book gets stacked on your backpack and if you hit five books, you collapse. Catching an eraser removes one book from your backpack! Also, avoid black trash bags which slow you down.

The game gets harder as you progress and soon you're watching out for books flying in all directions clicking away at the screen running and jumping in a frenzy.

The game is fun, addicting, and heart-stopping  because you're always under constant threat of being hit by books. The game itself carries an interesting real-life concept which will be described below


My app is a spitting image of school. We're stuck in a crappy classroom being hit over and over by books. Yeah, "learn this and get ahead in life". Unfortunately,  there isn't much learning.

Here's a realistic example of what our education is like:

*Memorize this for the test*
*takes test*
*forgets all the info the next week*

Why did we even learn the material in the first place if we're going to forget it? It's ridiculous. Also, the reason we forget the info in such a short time is because we simply don't use it.

For instance, when was the last time someone asked you to recall a literary device? Or prove a math formula? Or balance a chemical equation? Or recall some specific historical event? The chances are slim to none.

Unfortunately, we're just judged by our transcripts and GPAs. It's not about how creative or intellectual you are, it's about how much you can memorize and pass tests. That's just sad. The worst part is that we have to go through this 5/7 days of the week and bear homework on weekends.

School is like a prison. In fact, I've even added some prison elements to my game to express this. For instance, the main character is in jail clothes. Within the game you'll find handcuffs, and assortments which contribute to a prison-like environment. But at the end of the day, it's a really fun, satirical game based on a real life issue.

I'm hoping to get exposure on the matter and my app.  Education isn't talked about much and it seems like everyone goes with what's given instead of questioning it.

Developer's Note

Please share with your friends and write a 5-star review if possible! I appreciate it so much! I've spent countless Friday nights working on it, fixing bugs, drawing, and uploading to the App Store with certificates to ensure a great user experience. This is by far my greatest feat in life which I only accomplished through envisioning, determination, and self-discipline to remain focused.

Ask a Question / Uploading to IOS missing game icon
« on: October 08, 2017, 10:47:14 pm »
Hello all, I have made it this far.

Whenever I upload to IOS, I come across one stinking issue- just one.

It says that my app is missing a 1024x1024 game icon, however I have a game icon already added to game settings and icon 1024... thus I am confused...

I opened my app in Xcode, and saw that I was missing the App Store 1024x1024 icon. How can I add this to stencyl? I can't directly publish from Xcode.

Ask a Question / How do I make a timer for stats?
« on: June 01, 2017, 10:36:25 am »
I would like to display hours, minutes, and seconds played.

I have an idea, I would input "Add 1 to seconds every second" and "Divide seconds/60 then set equal to minutes"

However, I always get a decimal. I want a whole number so I could set the remainder equal to the preceding value.
For instance, 620/60= 10 minutes
620-(10x6)= 20 seconds

Stats would show 10 minutes and 20 seconds

Ask a Question / Why do my bullets curve like this?
« on: March 01, 2017, 09:37:47 pm »
Watch the video. They always hit an enemy and curve randomly to the side. I tried to replicate it as best as possible to my other bullets which don't curve, but it never works for some reason.

In the end, I show my settings for the bullet and the fire bullet event.

Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks.

Ask a Question / Background does not pause?
« on: January 07, 2017, 06:58:37 pm »
Whenever my game is paused, the background keeps going. I mean, the scrolling speed is 0 but it still continues for some reason even when the game is paused  (Video Skip to 1:08-1:12)  (Background setup)

Thank you sirs.
