Hey Guys,
When running stencyl from a batch file with "java -Xms64m -Xmx4096m -jar sw.jar" to increase memory, Stencyl goes a bit whacko and when I right click a file to get the context menu it will open the file instead.
This issue is isolated to Stencyl, the mouse button clicks and settings are normal in every other program.
Im running Windows 8.1 x64 with latest public release of Stencyl.
Java 8 Update 11 64 bit
Ive reinstalled Stencyl  and it makes no difference.

Anyone else had this issue?

Ask a Question / Are we required to include iAd error handling?

Hey guys, quick question.
Am I right to assume that Stencyl handles all errors in case iAd fails to load?
and if so, what are the "When the ad area loads" and the "When the ad area fails to load" blocks used for?

Hey Guys, I'm very new to the Stencyl scene but I'm having fun so far.

I'm currently working on a tower defence game and I'm using the Follow Path behaviour that contains x amount of waypoint nodes for the enemies to follow.

What I am after is how I calculate the distance left before the end of the path.
I want to program towers to aim at the enemy that is the closest to reaching the end of the track as a priority.

I have thought of using x coords but that wont work if a track goes backwards and forwards in a zigzag style path.

I am hoping theres a way to calculate pixel distance between nodes or something similar. Can anyone offer some advice?

Thanks for reading  :)
