We're probably going to deprecate this approach since it's too time-consuming to do. It would just make more sense to play the file directly and not go through a game.

Amazon is running some pretty nice deals. If you buy a 3DS, you get $25 in 3DS game credit.

If you pre-order a 3DS game, you get $10 off the second one. It's possible that this will stack with the $25, so you get your first game for $15 and then the second one for $30. Not bad to get 2 games for $45.

A third offer is to get a free accessory with a 3DS.

I'm hopefully getting mine next week.

The good games will start rolling in starting June for Zelda and Star Fox and Mario Kart will follow later this year.

I get that kind of error whenever the files in the games folder are corrupted, typically the .xml files. I don't have a solution.

This is different from the thing you ran into. In this case, the XML file was either left out or unreadable by the engine, so it at least opened in SW.

Several of us took turns on this, but this never got done, and I'm not sure if it's going to be done for launch.

In lieu of a delete function, I've put in a safer publish/unpublish mechanism.

I don't intend to let you delete interviews. If you accidentally create one, just let me know.

I didn't get around to the image part yet.

Edit: Logo uploading is now operational.

I threw together a quick interview manager for you. Check it out.

The general procedure with images is to use the Image uploader for articles (which dumps it under and then take the URL of that.

It will resume progress after launch and hopefully reach a product-marketable state within 2-3 months, putting it in the summer timeframe.

Looks like you intended this to be an iOS game. ;)

Sounds good. This is to the new Forge in b368, right?

Your copy of b367 is bad and is missing an updated copy of lib.jar. I can't speculate as to why that is other than to recommend redownloading the ZIP and reupgrading, or if you want a quick fix, just pop this into your directory.

Not implemented in the new site yet.

Ask a Question / Re: [Idea] Menu Builder Extension
« on: March 21, 2011, 08:22:50 pm »
You need to develop a part of StencylWorks to support that, but I can describe roughly how you'd do that.

The best file to look at would be This file generates an Actionscript class on the fly that lists out all the game's assets (scenes, resources) for both game previewing and SWF publication. The relevant methods to look at are createMyAssetsFile and createRemote

You would need to do several things to add support for a game.

1) Add an extension hook to FlashFileGenerator:createRemote that will call onBuildGame and onPreviewGame that will call the extension when a game is built or previewed.

public String onPreviewGame()
public String onBuildGame()

2) Then, your extension will pass back a String with the data to inject. It will also need to copy the data file(s) to the right location during the call. You can tell what those locations are from the source.

Once that is done, then your data files will get packaged into the game. To access then from the game, you can get the Assets class, which is a singleton and then grab your data directly. (e.g. Assets.get().classMemberName)

You'll want to look at some of our file locating classes on the engine side to see how to process the data. You can find examples in and the io package.

Since I see this becoming a fairly common thing to do for extensions, I invite ideas from you about how to make this easier for the end users and extensions authors to achieve.

Hope this helps!

Has anybody had a chance to verify that this is now fixed? Preferably those who originally reported this. (Blackbishop and Masked)
