Game Art / Tips for a Chiptune Beginner?
« on: March 11, 2015, 02:50:43 pm »
(I wasn't sure where to post music related things, so sorry if this is in the wrong place!)

Hello. ^^ I'm currently trying to make chiptune/8bit music for my games, and seeing as I've just started, its a little... rough. XD
So I was wondering if anyone had any tips + tricks for me or any beginner in the chiptune area, Like what program to use, tutorials, essentials, ect.. anything. I'm currently trying to use FamiTracker which is good ( so far as I can tell) i've switched to PXTone, actually. :D It's pretty cool and easier to use.

If you want to hear something I've made I've attached it in this post.

Oh, I see. When you go to Settings -> Groups -> Regions it doesn't let you select anything, but at Settings -> Groups -> Players you have them set to collide with the Regions. Deselect the Regions there and it should work again.
:o wow it really was that simple. I feel like an idiot now. XD thank you! I will remember this in the future.

Hm, strange. Would you mind sending me your project so I can take a look?
I sent it in a message. ;u;

Go to the Settings -> Groups and make sure the Regions group is not set to collide with anything.

Btw. the bug that allows Regions to be set to collide is fixed already in the private build:,38107.0.html
it doesn't give me an option to even make it collide with other groups. ;u;

Try this:
- Disable the 4way movement (which can be created WAAAAAY easier btw. I will help you with this if needed)
XD I kinda figured there was...
Anyway, I tried that, and nothing changed.
The log you posted doesn't show:

Could not load collision group: -2 and 0

Do you have another log that shows this error? Also, could you perhaps attach a zipped version of your resources folder or your game for me to look through?
Here is a new log, and the resources folder for the game.
I deleted unwanted images from that folder (because that actor isn't even in the game anymore) and that collision message on the log viewer doesn't show it anymore. but it is in the log file. :[

Can you post a screenshot of those 3 different behaviors?
Ok. They're a little haard to read, but i put them left-to-right in how their built.
Also, I'm not including the keep camera centered on player behaviour, because that one is always->keep camera centered on [self]
Also Included the enemy wander behaviour, just in case.

I don't think it's a null attribute looking at those class references, but I'm not sure what the problem is.  Something may be wrong inside your resources folder.
Hm, I'll take a look in there then.
How many actor and behaviors are inside the very first scene? We can start with checking all the behaviors in your starting scene.
3 actors, and no scene behaviours. Actor 1 has 3 behaviours, and the other two are the same actor: and has one behaviour. so, pretty much all of my behaviours are in the scene.

^ That is a very common mistake made by rookies. ( No offence =p)
None taken, I already know I'm a newbie. XD

I took a look through all my behaviours a few times, and none of them there set to nothing, and all of my hidden attributes are number attributes.

And the error pops up right after the flash window pops up. here is a screen shot, it that helps.

I've picked away at it some more, But Haven't gotten anywhere. I got this problem after I made a new actor and set it to be in the doodads collision group. I thought that was the problem, So I got rid of it (and anything affiliated with a member of that group) but it persists.

I apologize if this question pops up often, but I've tried to fix this for a few days now and I can't figure it out.

When I hit the 'test game' or 'test scene' button, i get an error message window, saying:
Code: [Select]
TypeError: Error #1009: Cannot access a property or method of a null object reference.

Could not load collision group: -2 and 0

i've clicked "clean project," that didn't do anything.
I've also looked through all my behaviours, all their attributes are set. Although I'll double check.
And I've even deactivated all my behaviours on all actors in the scene, and I still get these bugs.
Any and all help is appreciated.

Resolved Questions / Can't Test my game(SOLVED)

EDIT: I found the problem! it was a simple mistake, i accidentally put 5` instead of just 5.  :D

So for some reason, My game won't run when I hit test game. All I get is a big flash window (which it shouldn't be that big, my game screen is small!) I've attached my logs, and a screenshot of that big flash window.

Sorry if there is an already answered version of this question.  :-\

Yeah it has been a while since I worked on this I got a really bad flu over the holidays and I took a while to get back into this. Some of those things you are mentioning will be fixed up , I decided to take it a different route at the moment and explore ideas that involve building up the overworld, then I can decide where to put dungeons and how exploration should play out. Npc's will be based around design neccesity and story line.. but right now I am considering taking it a different direction than link's awakening after all. I'm not sure of the scope of the overworld yet it seems to lag a little bit when I have a map that is 64 by 64 tiles but I'm pretty sure if I keep most of the over world areas simple it shouldn't be an issue since I'm using reduced tile sets for the overworld flash can handle it probably.

So currently I'm experimenting with expanding the overworld there are some bugs with this it's annoying how music will play twice in the background, I fixed it.
I need to make more graphics but I'm too lazy right now it took me 3 nights all night one time just to make the tilesets I have by hand (yes by hand in gimp)
Kind of annoying. But worth while.
I'm getting excited about the idea of combining mechanics from different games. This project is exhausting to work on I can only work on it for a few hours at a time then my mind gets tired. There are a TON of objects inside this project to make it work the way it does so far. Check it out:

So uhm. Yeah.. current progress. Not alot but getting there. It will take some time for sure.
I'll be sketching down dungeon ideas and overworld lay out ideas. It would be nice to add an overworld map system to it as well as maps for dungeons and add in the mechanic of dungeons having multiple floors. But that part's a bit harder in speculation since I'm not sure that the variables for where you should be in a room would add up to larger rooms.... Will have to experiment with that much further down the project.  Multiple floors yes but falling down to another floor and being where you should land on the next floor down a bit harder.

Be warned this is a long term project at this point and will take alot of effort. I look foreward to wowing everyone with what I can do creatively with a game project.

Well just take it one step at a time, otherwise you'll trip and fall. :3 I wish you luck on your game!
