« on: January 19, 2013, 12:11:31 pm »

« on: January 05, 2013, 08:43:51 am »
Is there any way I can count how many actors in a group there are on screen? I've tried changing a game attribute by 1 when created and by -1 when it dies.

Thanks in advance!

Feel free to comment alternative app stores that I can add.

If and when a store becomes available e.g Mac App Store in 3.0 I will delete the option.

Ask a Question / Creating an Actor Via a Button
« on: November 15, 2012, 11:04:23 am »
I know how to create an actor and I know how to make the actor follow the mouse. But I don't know how to put two and two together.

I have a button on the screen, and when the button is pressed, an actor is created. I want the actor to follow the mouse until it is clicked again, but not when it is touching a specific group of actors (other buttons to rotate it, etc). Currently, the actor just shows up for a split second and then disappears (presumably behind/next to the button off screen). How would I fix this?

Thanks in advance!

Ask a Question / Tileset Advice
« on: October 14, 2012, 09:37:38 am »
Hello, I've tried making tilesets before in Serif Drawplus, but when I import them, they are always jumpy. Is there an easy way to make tilesets? (If it isn't using Serif DrawPlus, I'm not willing to buy any more software to do it). I don't really want to pay anyone to make them.

Thanks in advance!

Hello, I am developing a game which features gravity and planets, similar to the style of Angry Birds Space. How would I do that?

Thanks in advance!

Chit-Chat / Windows 8 Metro
« on: September 25, 2012, 12:52:49 pm »
I just got an email from gamesalad saying they will support windows 8 metro (with the tiles etc) and it reminded me of something I thought about not too long ago.

Will Stencyl support windows 8 metro and will we be able to design a tile etc?

Ask a Question / Turrets and Turret Areas on a Tower Defence Game
« on: September 24, 2012, 09:53:28 am »
I want to be able to make a turret area sprite (where it detects actors enemy actors) follow the turret when it is first bought on a tower defence game. Normally, I would make the turret an actor attribute, but I can't do that for game attributes. I only want it to follow before it is set (because the turret won't be able to move once placed, except rotate).

How would I do this?

Thanks in advance!

Resolved Questions / [SOLVED] Event -> Kill Actors of Type
« on: July 22, 2012, 12:57:18 pm »
Hello. Recently I have been working on a game where you click on a block of a certain colour, it changes an attribute by 1, and then the blocks add up until you click one of the ones that have already been clicked to remove them. I'm not  explaining it very well, but it's like the "Push Panic" app on the app store ( I want to know how to kill all the selected actors. So far I have:

Resolved Questions / [SOLVED] Problems With Swiping
« on: July 17, 2012, 12:35:31 pm »
I have recently added the "Swiping Menu" from StencylForge onto my game, but I am struggling to change where it slides to. I tried changing the x value of the block under where it says "Center of [number]" but with no luck.

Ask a Question / Set Something's Speed
« on: July 10, 2012, 11:25:27 am »
Hello, I was wondering if I could change an actor's speed without changing its direction. I think it would be via an attribute but I'm not sure how. There isn't a block for speed on its own.

Thanks in advance!

Chit-Chat / Consoles
« on: June 27, 2012, 10:58:03 am »
Any idea if/when Stencyl will be able to export to consoles? (XBLA PSN Store, PS Vita etc). Stencyl for  DS would also be an interesting one, along with the wii, however I don't think either of them will ever come... too complicated. I think XBLA and PSN Store is do-able though. Maybe for Stencyl 4.x?

Anyway, looking forward to 3.0! Can't wait to go pro soon and publish to the app store, both on iOS and Android!

Ask a Question / Go To Last Destroyed Actor
« on: June 09, 2012, 12:31:45 pm »
How do I make an actor go to the last destroyed actor? I don't really want to use last collided actor because there are a lot of collisions.

Thanks in advance!
