Extension Ideas / Re: Simple input box

This is great. I have been looking for something like this for a while. I'm curious how you did it.


Stencyl Jam 17 / Ice Mage
« on: December 19, 2016, 12:06:32 pm »
For the jam I wanted to explore ways for the player to have a certain control of the procedural generation of the level. The idea was born from thinking about the cold theme (freezing enemies…to obvious...freezing moving tiles…yes!).

A work in progress, but I am happy with the overall concept of the player freezing the moving pieces of tiles of a platformer in strategic ways. Currently working on more ways the tiles can interact, sound, more monsters and spells, and polishing.

I saw "spooky" as the theme and immediately though of my occult manuscript collection...hehe

You can re-size them yourself in a program like photoshop (X1, X3, X4 etc), and then replace them within the game folder/resources, using the appropriate name (e.g., 13-0@2x.png). Stencyl will use the images you manually replaced when rendering the game. It is a bit time consuming but it works :)

If you can import at X1, then it might be a matter of selecting the right box (X2, X4 etc.) in game settings>display.

Good news for developers: apps will apparently auto-scale.
It's still in 16:9, with more pixels though (thus some loss of quality is expected).

Old Bugs (3.x) / Fade removes tint effect (on iPhone)
« on: May 10, 2014, 02:39:30 pm »

Adding opacity to an actor removes the tint effect (issue found on a iPhone, works fine in flash).
For example:
1) Add red tint at 100% to blue actor --> actor turns red (all good!)
2) Fade Self to 50% --> actor becomes 50% transparent and reverts to initial red color.

Other effects seem to work fine in conjunction with Fade Self.


Wow, this is a game changer. Many thanks!

Good idea. Getting comments and ratings is a huge deal for indie game developers, and this seems like a good way to give each other a boost. Lets not call it "SS" though (google it if you don't know why).

Innes, that must be the funniest copyright story I've heard... a trunk-less Dumbo Disney Mouse... ???

I'm on the latest version of  3.0 and it does not show up on the forge, so I will be installing an earlier version to get it. Thanks for the info!
