Ask a Question / Re: Connecting a line between two points that are moving

Use the above block to draw a line between the position of your actor and the fixed point.

And watch this video to understand how drawing works:
You are looking for the segment about "scene space" in the "Transform" chapter. I recommend you watch the whole thing to get familiar with the drawing blocks though.

Tools > Game > Clean Project. See if that changes anything.
You can also put print blocks in your code and see if they show up in the log viewer/game controller during gameplay, to confirm your changes are being applied.

Ask a Question / Re: Lyren's Utility Pack
« on: August 23, 2022, 07:08:40 am »
I can find video tutorials to all Lyren's packs except the Utility pack - is there one somewhere?

The Utility pack comes with "a sample game, demonstrating some of its possibilities".
But when I try to run it, I get message "this game was written with a new version of Stencyl (4.1.0-b10658. We recommend upgrading Stencyl . . .". I'm using  version 4.0.4, and  the game starts but doesn't run
(by the way when is the next version to be released?)
I haven't made a tutorial on the Utility Pack yet, though I have a draft of the script ready. I have a batch of updates for most of my packs comming in the future, so I'm holding on videos until I finish those. Can't give an ETA, I'm just one person.
And as far as I tested, you can dismiss that message and the game should compile and play no problem, as it has been the case before. Worst case, if it refuses to compile and play for you, one option would be to play in the itchio page and use the project file to view how actors are configured and whatnot. If you can specify what exactly do you mean by "start but doesn't run", and provide an error message if there is any, I might be able to help or do something about it.
And I can't comment on the next Stencyl public release, all I know is that it's being worked on pretty regularly.

Upload to a website that supports HTML5, such as itchio. Stencyl Arcade only supported Flash games, and hasn't been updated for HTML5 games as of yet.

Ask a Question / Re: Extend the edge for the jump.

That's called "coyote time". You can use a manual timer that starts as soon as the player starts falling, and allow the jump code to execute during that time.

Use the Orbit behavior plus the instructions to update the Particles behavior with special movement from here.

Likely you are not killing your actor particles. You have to do that on your own, or use the provided "Die over Time" behavior.

Unless you post a screenshot of the code you attempted, there's not much help to be given. There is a camera icon on the bottom right corner of your behavior you can use for that.

This video should help you understand how the Updating event works, as that seems to be the issue you are having.

Code: [Select]
Set B to [floor of (A/100)]That's all you need. Floor is an option in the "round" block.

Ask a Question / Re: Boolean turning red when inside of a block
« on: May 20, 2022, 08:42:59 am »
A collision block can only be used in a collision event. A custom block cannot be a collision event.

Get familiar with the print block. It will show values on the log viewer or game controller (if you have it enabled). Use that to check the relevant values of all your attributes during the course of your system. That ought to help you diagnose why it is not functioning as you expect it to.

Ask a Question / Re: Can I legally distribute Stencyl program myself?

Link to the Stencyl download page. That's more trustworthy and less troublesome.

Test the game on Flash. It should give you an error message pointing to the line of code that's triggering the issue. Other than that, you'd have to post a screenshot of your code to get more precise help. There is a camera icon at the bottom right corner to export the entire image of your behavior.
