No! It's licensed by Microsoft, but the license is a bit confused.
After some research I think I have no permission to do, but tomorrow i will call Microsoft support to ask about.
Anyway, thank you
Let us know how it goes!

Very awesome!  :)

How are you managing to keep that framerate when I can't even have a guy shoot more than 30 bullets without my flash freezing up.

It's an exe export. You gotta start making exe games flash is about to die in less than 3 years.
Technically, flash is being discontinued at the end of 2020, so it's actually more than 3 years. :)

For those who want to continue making web games, HTML5 is the way to go, and Stencyl's HTML5 target should be out of the beta phase by 3.5.

We are one day away from the eclipse. I'm shaking out of excitement. :D

If Donni11 is correct, at least it's coming up soon then. I think my great-grandparents are starting to get tired of flinging things with spatulas. :(
Here's a new one:

How about screwing in some ol' fashioned incandescent lightbulbs? Leave em' on for a little while and after they're good and hot, splash em' with water! They'll explode!

The fun activities section is great, but please consider expanding it with more activities. My kids need something to do in the remaining 10 days leading up to the eclipse, and I'm not sure that wearing a strainer basket will hold their interest until then.

Thank you for the reply. I will try to think of some fun activities for your kids.

Here's one:

How about using a spatula as a sort of "item tossing device"? Could be fun

That's all I've got to offer for now.

Yes it is that time of year again. For the first time in 400 years the United States of America will be including a west to east coast to coast SOLAR ECLIPSE predicted to span the entire coast to coast area of the country . This legendary event will take place Monday August the 27th.

What you need to know:


- When in the Path of Totality you will be blessed with the opportunity to stare at the sun but only during the brief period of totalitarianism.
- No one has ever seen a solar eclipse before so we're not sure what is going to happen.
- Do not be inside during this once in a livetime event as you will regret it afterwards and will never witness it.
- Don't forget your space helmet (crucial mistake).

The Map

Do you see your house? If you do not then it is time to get in a car

The Phases


Total. You can look now!

Post-total. Stop looking!

Welp it's over now what

Cultural Impact

Fun Activities

Consider wearing one of these bad boys on your head at all times. It will project miniature eclipses onto your head which will empower you

Welp now that you have all of the information that you need you're ready for the soar eclipse! See you out there!

Something to keep in mind is if you're using the Flash Debugger (the thing that's bundled with Stencyl and used when testing Flash games), performance will be worse than if you were using the regular Flash Player.

I had to share this glitchy dialogue box. Yup. It's a work in progress... :)
Wahaha, you might have figured this out already but it looks like you're using the player's scene coordinates to set the text box position, but you should use the player's screen coordinates instead since drawing is relative to the screen.

@Irock Your dialogue system and game look awesome! Is this a customization of the available Dialogue Extension?
Thanks! It's actually completely separate and custom made, though it shares many of the same features since I co-designed the dialog extension and have a particular taste for dialog systems.

It would have been nice to use the dialog extension, but I think it would have wound up being too much work to retrofit it for my game, given that I'm not nearly as familiar with the inner workings of the system as Justin is.
