Paid Work / I will pay for help making a relatively simple game.
« on: April 14, 2021, 02:56:37 pm »
Hi everyone,

I want to make a game for android but I have a medical condition that causes blurred vision and it's been difficult for me to sit at the PC for hours trying to focus.

The general idea of the game:
Pretty simple touch, click and collect.
5 scenes but they are pretty much identical - just different assets.
I need help with the code being put together and persistence between scenes.

If interested, please send me a direct message for more info and what you would expect for compensation.


Ask a Question / Scene keeps starting from the beginning.

Hi everyone,

My first scene (scene 1) has welcome and tutorial text and spawning actors. If I transition to scene 2 and then return to scene 1, the actors are no longer present (which I understand that I need to create attributes for but the welcome text that is displayed at the very beginning of the game plays again. Do attributes need to be created to make those events happen only once as well?


Ask a Question / Making actors persist when switching scenes
« on: April 10, 2021, 09:50:15 pm »
I want to have actors that populate a scene that the player has "collected". But when I switch scenes and return, those actors are gone and the scene basically reloads. Is there a way to keep the actors that the player has "collected" remain on the screen when switching scenes? I read somewhere that it can only be done with attributes?

Hi Stenclyers,

I am creating currency for my game (i.e, coins to collect).

My question is if I set the attributes to increment when a coin is collected, and add a block for saving the game, is there anything more that is needed to make sure that the player's currency will remain collected and reflected accurately when playing, quitting and playing the game again?


Ask a Question / Actor falling off screen
« on: April 03, 2021, 08:38:17 pm »
Does anyone know why an actor would be falling off the screen and out of the scene after it has been created? I created 100 actors in my game and none of them have this problem. I created this last actor in the same manner as I created all of the rest but it keeps falling down off of the scene/screen. I don't know why?

Ask a Question / How to draw a timer
« on: April 02, 2021, 08:58:53 pm »
Is there a tutorial anywhere that explains how to do the following ...

Draw text that states: "Next train coming in 3 minutes" with the "minutes" being drawn in numbers?

Please forgive me for the questions; I have a medical condition that causes blurred vision throughout the day and it makes it hard for me to scan the internet looking for solutions to read.  But I haven't found a tutorial specific to this case.

Thank you

Is there an easy way to create a group of actors (aside from duplicating) who share the same behaviors, etc?

Can anyone recommend the most efficient way to draw the name of a character once that character spawns?


Ask a Question / Advice for Android App Scaling
« on: March 24, 2021, 02:20:38 pm »
Hi all,

I'm making an Android game (landscape 480x320) and I can't seem to find the correct scale mode. My art assets end up a little off of the screen even though I place them correctly in the scene. Other scale modes will leave too much room on one side of the screen. Would a camera be required to resolve this issue?

Can anyone recommend the proper scale mode for an Android (landscape) game that would allow my assets to be displayed without being stretcher or cut off, or with too much empty space on the screen?

Thank you

Ask a Question / Stencyl not generating an apk for Android
« on: March 22, 2021, 10:58:23 pm »
Does anyone know why this would be happening?

My Android game compiles and I get a display message stating that it has been sent to the device (phone) but it never appears. I noticed in my Generated Games folder that the second "bin" folder where the apk should be does not exist.

Thank you

Hello all,

King Idiot here ...

When I click on "test game" for an Android target, I keep getting "you need to download the Android SDK. I've already downloaded the Android SDK but it gives me that message every time that I click on "test game".

Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong?

Hi all, new here.

I am making a mobile game with a scene that is 640x480. I want the player to be able to view 320x480 of the scene with the option to scroll the scene with their finger to pan around through the entire 640x480.

Can anyone please help me out. I'm an idiot.
