Ask a Question / Whats the way to do a tightrope walk type thing?
« on: May 28, 2014, 07:45:25 pm »
I'm doing a top-down dungeon crawler game and having a problem with this room.
The goal of this room is basicly just to make your way along the narrow path, if you go in the lava you get sent back to the start.

I have regions set along the edges of the pathways where if you cross over youre sent back (as above) and it kinda works but because the path has a few turns it takes quite a few region points to do it this way, so many that on testing the scene it causes the play to be laggy.
Is there a better way to get this mechanic to work that wont cause the lag ?

I'm on part 9 of the cash course 2 tutorial
http://www.stencyl.com/help/viewArticle/179/
According to the chat below some of the instructions are for an older version but as im new to this i dont know what to replace the outdated comand with.
could someone please look at the screenshot in the tutorial and tell me what i should put instead of the blue box "width of self"
i found the "x of self" box but there is no option for width in the dropdown
having tried every option in the dropdown (shown in pic attached) to no success i was hoping someone here could lend some advice.

new to  stencil so please forgive if an obvious answer is staring me in the face.
