Ask a Question / Re: Unable to run demo games from stencyl forge
« on: July 04, 2020, 01:26:55 pm »
StencylForge was discontinued. Everything there is very old (in computer years) and may not work with the latest versions of Stencyl.

Follow the crash course. If you run into more problems post on this forum or the discord server.

It's certainly possible. Yes, there're various things to overcome, but's readily doable. I've seen someone working on something similar in Stencyl, but I can't remember the name of it. If I find it I'll let you know.

That doesn't happen to me. Maybe it's browser dependent? What browser are you using? It could also be down to people's personal security settings.

Really great attempt. Impressive for a first game.

The second level seems out of place. Seems like it should be towards the end because of how difficult it is.

I got to the boss but gave up, purely because there's no health bar. I had no idea I was going to be battling for. Lack of health bars in the biggest issue. Second, it really needs auto fire option, or at lest fire on the mouse being held down.

Another big reason for giving up was the boss' movement. It moves faster than the player, and it's random. I had a few attempts where it seemed to follow me and it was impossible to escape. It was pretty much over me the entire time. A pattern with tells would be fairer.

Not sure. Backgrounds are probably lighter than tiles.

It's complex to get your head around at first, but as soon as it clicks its actually very straight forward.

No, it's the Image API

I'd say background, or better yet, an image.

Shouldn't be too complicated. What will there be on the scene?

Yes. I suppose you would use a combination of the Image API and moving actors, rather than moving the camera.

It'll appear near the bottom.

You can use loops to cycle through things.

You may also want to look at using the Tile API. It's very useful for grid-based stuff.

I think you need to create and define a font
