Help with basic functionality


  • Posts: 201
After using iStencyl for the past two I must say that I love the UI, how easy it loads and changes from a scene to another.

It's really impressive and I have to congratulate Jon and the rest of the team for all their hard work!

All it needs now it's a more complex help system, for example I have problems with moving an actor from Y position -100 (off screen) and to make it go to Y pos 400 (as he is leaving the screen) - I worked with different environments (SDK) and iStencyl is working a little bit different.

I will appreciate any suggestion on how to achieve that...

Thank you!

If an actor goes offscreen it stops simulating to benefit performance. To stop this from happening use the "Make Self Always Simulate" block in Actor > Properties.

Did this work for you?

Yes, it's working now. I still have some question regarding some basic functionality like how can I fade/interpolate the movement of an actor...
