So basically the score is equal to the number of actors alive on the screen?

Or you could just keep your always event, and make it like this:

if boxes = TRUE
create box
set boxes to FALSE
do AFTER x seconds
set boxes to TRUE

I think I have read somewhere that the "do every" event is somewhat unreliable, but I can't remember why (if I even remember correct).

A decimal is everything after the " . "(Actually it's the divider, but I think that's what you mean) sign in a number. Adventure capitalist only uses 3 decimals, even if the amount of money is very high. They change the suffix of the number instead, so that the player reads the number as very high, if you understand what I mean. When you start, if you have 142.240 dollars, there's only three numbers after the divider, and if you have 1.382 billion dollars, there's still only three numbers after the divider.

That works because when you reach a certain number, in AdCa case 999.999 dollars, the next dollar you make will change that number to 1 MILLION dollars, all the way up to 999.999 MILLION dollars, and then to 1 BILLION dollars.  So the highest number you work with in that particular game is actually "only" 999999 (with a divider enter the third digit)

I hope this makes some sense, and you can search the forum for posts about using dividers, and using attributes for handling "large" numbers.

I hope this helps and that I haven't mislead you in any way :)

I believe you can manually edit the automatically  generated png's, perhaps that's an option for you?

I believe the second crash course will teach you what you need to know about enemies hit points, I suggest you start there (or perhaps with the first crash course).

This is just a thought, but you would have to set two number attributes to store your current position, start the motion, and calculate when they have been increased/decreased with 32 pixels, and then stop the motion. That way you won't teleport into the region, but enter it the "normal" way.

The continuous collision detection might not be needed. Also, there might be some easier solution to it, but this is what I would try out.

Is it possible to use motion set very high, and limited to 32px per move, and also enable continuous collision detection?

How about a scene behavior to take care of the number or actors, and in the actors 'when created' you just put 'set health to (health + random number)'?

If I understand you correct, you want something like this:

B/B = black
b/b = brown
B/B AND d/d = ?
B/B AND D/D = gray
b/b AND d/d = ?
b/b AND D/D = champagne

Under 'flow' you have  the 'AND' evaluation, you can experiment with that. I would recommend using this also:

The unit of speed in Stencyl is 10 pixels per second.
