Ask a Question / Re: Stencyl 2.2 to stencyl 3.0
« on: May 03, 2013, 07:14:27 am »
Ok, I built a line drawing game in stencyl 2.2. I am trying to move the game over to 3.0. however, the game completely wont work. I have heard that some "____as number" blocks and such dont work, however, is there any known problem when moving a game from 2.2 to 3.0. Is there any blocks I need to avoid using?

Ask a Question / Slowing down mouse input
« on: May 01, 2013, 06:15:20 am »
Hey guys, I am working on a drawing behavior, and I need a way to slow down mouse inputs to a steady input. In other words, I want to draw the line at a steady speed, even when the mouse moves really fast across the screen. Is there a way in stencyl/as3 to reduce the input speed of the mouse. The only way I could think of was to create a actor who follows the mouse at a constant speed and you would then use the X and Y of that actor to draw the line. Does anyone have any better ideas? thanks

Hey man, Very cool idea, especially with the different colored blocks. There were a couple things though that I came up with though.

     - The Start screen seemed a bit cluttered. Just my opinion though.

     - The jumping adds a nice difficulty but it tends to be a bit difficult to see the actual jump slider

     - This really isn't necessary, however, it is always nice to put up an alert when your actor is
          getting hurt. eg, maybe a flash of red, or something like that.

Of course, those are really just suggestions. You have a really nice game going.

Very clean and cool game. However, I couldnt even survive 1 loop on the regular difficulty (two blocks)......

This is pretty nice if this is your first game. However, I would say that I almost left the game, because I didnt know what to do when after I hit enter at the start of the game. It should a black circle with static around it, but there was no instructions on what to do. I figured out you needed to press the enter key, however, not have instructions on what to do at that point could possibly turn people away.

I know this sounds like a noob thing, but how do you access the benchmark/fps monitor in a .swf file.

Hey guys, does anybody know what the safe max would be for the amount of actors on screen at a time (actors with collision boxes on)? I guess it is a rather broad question, but I thought I throw it out there.

Resolved Questions / Re: How do i draw a line?
« on: April 29, 2013, 09:14:00 am »
Hey man. Looks like Hectate got to it before me. But if i am correct, that will only draw a line from 50,50 to your mouse x and mouse y. And when you move your mouse, it will move the line to the new mouse x and mouse y cords. However, if you want to draw a line that draws where you mouse has been (eg. wherever you move your mouse when the mouse is down, it draws a line) you have to use a list to store the coords. So if your looking for something like that, just copy the behavior below. But hectate may have already solved your problem.

- Draw pixel line (pic of the whole beavhior)
- steps 1,2,3 (close ups of each tab)

« on: April 28, 2013, 10:58:44 am »
The first thing that came to my mind is using the local boolean trick. But with you saying it didnt work, I hopped on stencyl and create a behavior to verify it. And the way I set it up, it seemed to work. (see Capture.PNG. the variable "can click?" is set to true on creation) maybe I'm missing something. Of course, in order to test, I just had the |fade out| block in the main if statement and used a | create actor type | block in the |do after .5 seconds| loop to verify that everything would run. So maybe if everything is not running correctly, it may be a problem with your other other block (trigger event, switch animation). I dont know. I'm just throwing out suggestions.
