This is quite interesting, i'd love to be able to see the code for this.

Once I get it nice a smooth and easy to use I am sure I could look into making a behaviour for it for everyone. it was pretty easy to do though.

can any body give me a sample of two way movement source code??? pls..  ;)

Do you want source code or the behaviour for 2 way movement?

You can edit the behaviour and go to the tab labelled "Preview code"

My name is Sam, I have been here for quite a while now, orginally a beta tester until I lost my old beta tester account somehow. So, a bit about me. I like programming the little bits of games that are really involved. I have made several games, mostly on NG and Kongregate.

I first started wanting to make games when I was in school. It was always an idea though and nothing more. I remember a friend of mine telling me about Stencyl and I got the beta but couldn't wrap my head around it so I kinda quit.

Last year in October/November time, a friend of mine told me about Stencyl again and how great it was. So I downloaded it and created my first game called Gunners 3K. It was a great feeling to have had made my first game and I will be making more and more. Hoping to making iOS and Android games very soon.

That's me in a nutshell. TaDa

Pretty much got it done, will upload a demo when I have worked out why at the end of the rewind, the character randomly jumps quite high (I think the Y of the character is being set to 0 for a split second before I empty the array of positions).

Edit: For some reason it was trying to return to the starting point of the player. Which was just randomly placed in the scene. Nothing to worry about lol.

30 seconds... with 100 updates per second it makes 3000 entries for a single value...
It would mean that if one number takes, let's say, 16 bytes (regular integer take 4, I don't know what about Numbers in AS3 or so and how it works with Arrays, so I try to come up with something relatively pessimistic) it would make astounding 48 kB per 30 seconds, or 96 kB per minute.

Or to put it other way, you can record 10 number values (e.g. xs and ys of 5 actors) every update and it'll still take less than 1 MB per minute. Not half bad, if you ask me. O.o'

Of course, it doesn't mean that you can't try some optimizing. The easiest one would be e.g. combining x and y in a single value [[ screen width ] * [ y ] + [ x ]] and then retrieve x by [remainder of [value] / [screen width]] and y by [floor of [value] / [screen width]].

But yes, how much you can optimise depends mainly on what sort of game you're making. I hope it's not a physics game. ;)

Thanks for the info sunflower, much appreciated. It's not a physics game, its a side scroller [braid alert] lol. I'll be sure to make some sort of announcement in demo form if I get it working :)

Goes to show Stencyl can be used by people even as young as a day old! Great tool.

Edit: This is what I've got so far

Hello everyone,

So this morning, I have had an idea for a game. I was just wondering though, if Stencyl would allow for  time rewinding. I know it doesn't have a magical block like "rewind for x seconds" but I'd be willing to look into the logic behind it. I was thinking about using an array of states, positions, velocity and inputs, but would this cause errors and dodgy behaviour like memory overflows etc?

If I were giving a user the ability to rewind 30 seconds from before their last move would this be better?

Like <player playing for 30 seconds> <user stops> <dont add any more data to array until moving again>

This would let the player rewind from the last time they stopped wouldn't it?


Ask a Question / Re: Resize Background
« on: August 28, 2012, 12:11:28 pm »

I looked in stencylpedia and forums and I don't see any clue of how to make this or if is even posibble.

Is there a way to modify the size of the background?

My screen size is 640x480, but I don't want to have a background with the same size (I want to optimize the most I can, because my game have a lot of backgrounds). 

When I am on design mode the background is just what I want, its resized to match to the screen size.  But when I run the game, the background is not resized and gets repited (I have the "Repeat Background?" box unchecked).

Here are some screenshots about it.

How can I resize the background at my will?  Or at least to match to the screen size?

I hope anyone could help me.

Maybe change in the settings to 2x or 4x?

Could we stop referring to Design Mode as coding? It's not code.

I call it "Blocking".

Haha, liked it, for 6 hours work this is really nice :) I like how the lines show you where the enemies are, original and nice touch :)

Thank you sir :)

Hello everyone,

So lately I haven't done much so, today I started a new game, only took about 6 hours in total. Music is from a royalty free music website (don't worry it's actually alright music).

If you want to play it here's the link:

Bye for now.

Hell everyone,

I see that there is no way of opening a URL in an swf anymore. I used it before and I am pretty sure it worked then. My entry into the newgrounds comp needs to have the stencyljam logo that links to the stencyljam official page, without that, I don't think they'll accept it because it doesn't comply with the rules.

Anyone else know how to make this work?

It's an in-house engine they made, the called it the Trixel Engine. Some searching online for this, you'll come across a post about it.
