Ask a Question / Re: Help with the actors and tiles

That sounds strange, you should be able to just click on a tile and hit backspace or use the cursor to select a group of tiles and hit backspace. Maybe try clicking the 'work only with tiles' button on the working mode bar at the top of your scene.

Ask a Question / Having problems with Anchor character to screen
« on: July 22, 2013, 03:07:17 pm »

I'm trying to add a mute button to my screen, it works fine on most of the levels but I'm having problems on a couple of scenes. When I test the scene the mute icon does not show up. I'm using the always block with the anchor actor to screen block. When I deactivate this event the mute button shows up but obviously does not follow the screen.

Any suggestions?


Not sure if this will help but couldn't you make a separate collision box on your actor that is a sensor that collides with the same sort of sensor on the other actor? So they have their normal collision box and then a small sensor one attached at the front that's only purpose is to detect the collision with the other actor and doesn't react with anything else.

Ask a Question / Look around scene

I'd like my user to be able to look around the scene at any point, to see what route to take through the platforms. I've tried basic things like 'if V is pressed move camera to x of mouse and y of mouse but with no response. I've also tried disabling camera follows actor.

Is there a way to make this function possible?

Thanks for the help everyone,

I'm looking for some help on saving and loading scenes. My game has around 15 levels, I would like the user to be able to get to a level like 7 or 8 and then be able to quit the game, when they come back they can hit continue and it will take them to the level they left on.

I got scene saving from stencyl forge but don't understand how to use it.

Thanks for the link,

The kill when leaving screen definitely seems to have sped things up a bit,

Much appreciated.

Hi, looking for some advice in cutting down on lag when I have many actors on the screen. I have one moving actor I am controlling then around 25 small actors just ideling, a bit like lemmings. Getting a lot of lag. Is it my computer or can the program not handle this many actors in the same scene at once?

Thanks for any tips.
