Extensions / Re: New Virtual Joysticks Extension
« on: March 12, 2014, 02:45:30 pm »
Hi Ali. This is great stuff - I'm using it at the moment. One thing I'd like to do is to limit the movement of a given joystick to a particular axis. You mentioned doing a 4-way joystick earlier, but I'd love to be able to implement 2 joysticks, one working in the x and one in the y (like an RC car controller).

Thanks again for the extension!

Extensions / iOS video player question
« on: February 27, 2014, 03:46:44 am »
I've been toying with the video player extension, and it works really well. I was just wondering if there was a way to suppress the transport controls and "Done" button, and just let the video play to its end without any user intervention.

Any help appreciated.

I'm thinking about including simple video clips in my next app. Is there a tool (freeware would be good!) to strip a video file into several still images at a given interval? I could then import each frame into an actor's animation. Pretty tedious, but the videos would only be a few frames long in my case.

AdMob / Re: [iOS & Android] AdMob Extension [2.1]
« on: January 28, 2014, 02:26:41 am »
I have implemented Admob in one of my apps, and it works a treat. Except in the following case:

Google guidelines state that you are supposed to be able to dismiss dialogue boxes with the "back" button. So, I need to override the normal behaviour. In order to quit the app, I have to add a code block that calls


This kicks the user out to the home/menu screen. But once you return to the app, the ads have disappeared. It seems the whole system has been killed - as forcing them to reappear (by firing off another "show Ad" block) doesn't seem to work. Can anything be done with this? Am I doing the right thing by calling this code to force a quit?

Thanks in advance

Hi. I thought this might be of help to some of you. I've created a pack of 1000 sound fx in an 8-bit style to be used in all sorts of games. It's available to download from Gamedev now.

Here's a demo of the kinds of things you can do with it:
