Hi all, here is a link to a Facebook page for my debut Stencyl release, Super Crash Land!  If you like what you see it'd be great if you could give the page a 'Like'.  Many thanks!   Coming soon to Android and iPhone...

Ask a Question / Facebook sharing
« on: April 26, 2014, 01:10:30 pm »
Hi all, I was wondering if anyone had successfully implemented a 'share to Facebook' button into their game, something that does a simple screengrab and posts it to the players timeline?  A game's success is highly dependant on players being able to share and socialise so it'd be good if this was possible in stencyl.  I have zero coding experience and rely on the blocks to do stuff!  thanks for any advice or info.

Resolved Questions / How do you create a 'Text Point Actor'? (SOLVED)
« on: April 22, 2014, 04:05:35 am »
I read recently read about a Text point actor which can actually draw individual scores when enemies are hit,  when it gets created the actor that received the damage tells the new Text Point actor what the damage value was  by setting it in an attribute for it.   Would anyone be able to explain how to set this up or how a text point actor is created?  many thnka

Hi, thanks for your reply, yea it's for Admob.  Thanks for your help!

Looks great! kinda reminds me of Rick Dangerous!

Hi all, I'm researching into game monetization and was wondering if you need a different Ad Unit Id for each level or if you keep the same one throughout the game?  any info or advice would be great thanks.

Hi all, I've noticed the size of my game folder is quite big, I only need my game art to be 1x so is it ok to delete all the other images at 1.5x, 2x and 4x?  many thanks

Ask a Question / Re: Power Up actor, 3 frames of animation
« on: April 11, 2014, 06:02:39 am »
Hi, sorry for the confusion, @Hectate you are correct, I'd like to find the frame number a power up actor is on when 'collected'.  Thanks for both your help, on this thread and on previous threads.    Very much appreciated.

Ask a Question / Power Up actor, 3 frames of animation
« on: April 11, 2014, 04:14:22 am »
Hi all, I've created a PowerUp actor which has 3 frames of animation, 1 for each type of power up, the animation continually plays through the frames until the player collides with it.  I'd like it so the player collects the power up dependant upon the frame that was being displayed when the actor collided with the power up.  Anyone know of the best way of getting stencyl to register a frame number? ie, if on frame 1: +500 point,  if on frame 2: +1 life ect.    many thanks

Ask a Question / Re: Admob and Chartboost in 1 game?

Hi, thanks for your reply, as you can tell I don't really know what I'm doing!  I thought using more than one service would increase revenue, I'll just choose one to avoid complication, I guess the next question would be which one?  I've read good and bad things about all of them in relation to EPC's.  I'll probably just use Admob and see what happens.

Ask a Question / Admob and Chartboost in 1 game?
« on: April 07, 2014, 09:14:07 am »
Hi all, I have a game that is probably going to be ready for release on Android in the next month or so, I'm starting to learn about app monetization, I've looked at Admob and Chartboost so far which look quite good, I was wondering if you can use more than one Ad provider in a single game?  I very much doubt that my game will make any money at all but I want to give myself the best possible chance.  Any advice would be great thanks.

Hi all, this should be an easy one.  I have a high scores screen which displays the highest score from each level of the game, however it always updates with the latest score and not the highest score.  I have 'Level Scores' game attributes and 'Level High Scores' game attributes, I do a number comparison of the two attributes: If Level1 HighScore < Level1 Score, Set Level1 HighScore to Level1 Score.  At the moment this isn't working and just updates the high score screen to whatever the latest score was, any ideas how to fix this?  many thanks!
