Ask a Question / HTML5
« on: Yesterday at 01:59:54 am »
I've recently started testing in HTML5 and noticed differences between how Flash and HTML5 handle things. Most noticeably issues with text and labels.

In HTML5 positioning is slightly off, line height is really off.  In Flash, when using labels I was able to tint text by tining the actor is was attached to, which was really useful, but doesn't work in HTML5.

Are these things bugs which are going to be fixed, or things I need to work around?

I don't know why flash is working while html5 isn't but I think the issue is that the next question is also reacting the same click as the current one.

So try clearing the current question and wait a second before presenting the next one.

Keeps crashing on Android a few seconds after opening.

EDIT: The music plays and I can see the main screen but after around 3 seconds it just quits.

If you release an OSX version I'll happily test for you. I do have an ancient Windows laptop somewhere I could dig out and try.

Use the Easy Math extension.  It's got blocks to easily calculate things like that.

Yes, local attributes. If you're going to have different colour balloons then things will get a little more complex, but the idea is the same. You'd need to run the check after the projectile has been fired (e.g. has it stopped moving or left the screen)

Have two number attributes.  One called 'projectiles', one called 'balloons'

Then for each balloon, increment 'balloons' by 1. As balloons are killed and projectiles are used decrement the correct attribute, then if either equal 0, end the level.

I've had a think about your idea. I could use spirit orbs that are attached to certain objects, and I could even have a few just free floating on certain scenes. Trying to think if there could be a use for them rather just for the sake of collecting them all.

Hint system implemented.
The hints are linked to the current scene, and a couple don't have hints as there's no need.

Hints are tucked away in the pause menu because I don't want people to just be tempted to keep checking hints for every scene. The game will also record hint usage so at the end I can tell players how many times they used them!

Change 'Nothing Happened!' responses to something more interesting.

Which graphics look a little inconsistent?

The grass, trees, clouds seem a little clunky compared to the rest of the graphics. Also, some outlines for actors seem thicker/blurrier than others.

See  blocks under ACTORS > DRAW > LAYER

Ask a Question / Re: How do I save a low score attribute?!

If low score equals zero when the player completes the game set the low score to shots taken.

otherwise set shots taken to the low score.

There are two main types of attributes; local (blue) and global/game attributes (purple).

Global/game attributes can readily be accessed from any behavior so you need to store that data in one of those.

You could have a global list (or map) which stores the money earned in each level.

Ok, thanks. I'll write some different text for the failed responses.

Some sort of hint system.

I like the progress you've made.

1. You can hit the crossbar from behind and still get a hit. Is that intentional?
2. Punting my sister off screen made me laugh more than it should have.
3. On levels which start with a pan I sometimes accidentally clicked the aim button which set my aim even though I couldn't see it.  I think you should only be able to set your aim once the camera has finished panning.  Clicking before should make the camera pan faster.
4. The graphics feel a little inconsistent. I think it's the different pixel sizes.
5. A ghost arrow of my previous attempt might be useful.
6. On time trial it counts down and then starts counting up. (probably still counting down but the - isn't showing.)
