I see that Stencyl 3.5 includes these two new options, and I see their brief descriptions as well, but I would also like to know the advantages and disadvantages of enabling or disabling each of these options.

Windows / Mac / Flash / HTML5 / Super Gem Shooter

I always loved the excellent mechanics of the original Puzzle Bobble game.
It is super fun and was a good challenge for me. So, I decided to make it:

Now I am going to make my other favorite arcade game, Zuma Deluxe:

Mechanics Mini Jam / Looooooooong TANK

Similar to my previous entry, TRUCK vs TANK:,51474.0.html
In this case, I wanted to check the stability of numerous Joints in a big and long vehicle.
[ENTER]: Restart the game
[Click on wheels]: Release/Destroy them
[RIGHT key]: Accelerate
[LEFT key]: Decelerate
[DOWN key]: Brake
For even greater performance and screen visibility, play it here:

You can drive both the truck and the tank, create boxes and destroy wheels.
[ENTER]: Restart the game
[Click on air]: Create/Destroy Box
[Click on wheels]: Release/Destroy them
[SPACE]: Change Vehicle
[RIGHT key]: Accelerate
[LEFT key]: Decelerate
[UP key]: Turbo ON/OFF
[DOWN key]: Brake
For even greater performance and screen visibility, play it here:
<a href="" target="_blank" class="new_win"></a>

With absolute respect, I want to mention this:

Beyond Stencyl 3.4

- We'll continue our focus on fixing bugs and stabilizing the app. This is what we and our users believe is our best course of action.

Almost a month without new released fixes, and the build server does not work. Strange way to start the year. This situation is very frustrating and disconcerting and can cause a lot of uncertainty to the users who pay for this software.
@Jon, could you please tell us what is happening?
And please, for the love of God, could you avoid this kind of so unfavorable situations?
Respectfully, I await your response.
Happy New Year 2017.

Stencyl Jam 16: "Spooky" / Coward Knight
« on: October 15, 2016, 08:16:23 pm »
Coward Knight

This is a coward knight who is unable to defend himself and doesn't even know how to use his sword. He only knows how to run and jump like a scared child. Now he is trapped and needs your help to escape the dangerous monsters that inhabit the dark dungeons. Can you help this coward?

You can play it here:


LEFT key to walk.
RIGHT key to run faster.
UP or SPACE key to jump. (hold for a higher jump)
(Holding the jump button you can choose the jump height and destroy multiple enemies/thrown objects by falling on them.)

I think it is important that all users can be easily and quickly informed of each new bug or suggestion, so it would be good to show also the unread posts of the Issue Tracker when clicking on New Posts in the Forum.

Lists are a widely used feature, so it is important to have the possibility to handle them with versatility.

In Stencyl, there is a block to get the item at given position in a list: 
But, strangely, there isn't this block to get the position of a given item in a list: 

I suggest adding this block to the Palette, I think it is a useful block. Sometimes I have needed it.

You know that people often ask how to draw behind the actors. This common issue would be solved by adding to the draw blocks the option to choose the layer on which to draw, in this simple way:

I suggest adding the standard "Cut" option in the contextual menu when righ click on a block because it is a classic useful option:

Maybe there are still many people who don't know the Issue Tracker, so I post this suggestion here, too.

I am completely sure that the simple addition of the "x-center" and "y-center" options in the block to set the actor coordinates would save us from having to frequently do a lot of tedious combinations of blocks:


It is really weird that this block does not include such essential options.

I think the Stencyl installer/uninstaller should detect that Stencyl is running, alert about it, and prevent the installation or uninstallation until the user closes Stencyl.

Fixed Bugs (3.x) / Animations can not be selected. (Build 8656)
« on: September 03, 2015, 05:17:31 pm »
Build 8656

The only animation that can be selected is the first one. If I click in any other animation, it automatically comes back to the first animation.

Another user has reported this problem, too:,43774.0.html
