With the 2012 Olympics coming up (yay!) I thought it might be a good idea to have a Stencyl-wide contest, Stencylimpics. Basically, there are 24 teams, and anyone can join them. Then everyone from the team submits a project that somehow indicates it is for the Stencylimpics, perhaps in the description. Whichever team(s) excel in one or more of the following will get some sort of prize:

You can make games like checkers (not games with commonly updating positions from both players). You will have to learn PHP and host a site. You can use the HTTP POST and GET blocks under Game\Web.
EDIT: Can you cut it out with the glows?

Happens all the time to me. My latest project is actually one I dumped over 3 months ago, I touched up on it a lot.

I use Adobe Fireworks CS6 for most of my graphics. I also use MS Paint then bring the image into Fireworks and very slightly blur the whole image.

They are both atomic, meaning it will repeat the action until it's goal is achieved, but it does it in one frame. So if the outcome is very rare, the system could get confused and crash after it runs through it about 1,000,000 times.

I noticed on my game that my loading screen wouldn't load online. All I get is the watermark and a teal loading bar with a black background.

Resolved Questions / Where would I post a "how-to"?
« on: June 25, 2012, 03:41:19 pm »
I've been looking at the fora, and I can't find a topic for how-to's. Would here be the ideal place for a guide on downloading games from Stencyl (without using Forge).
EDIT: I didn't pay enough attention, it is here! It won't let me delete this topic ???

Too lazy to post an image. Hopefully this will appeal to your vision. Pay attentions to the <'s snd >'s
always {
  if < [ [x of sefl] > [x limit to right] ] > {
    set x of self to [x limit to right]
  if < [ [x of sefl] < [x limit to left] ] > {
    set x of self to [x limit to left]
  if < [ [y of sefl] > [y limit to bottom] ] > {
    set x of self to [x limit to bottom]
  if < [ [y of sefl] < [y limit to top] ] > {
    set x of self to [y limit to right]
or the code
Code: [Select]

Awesome! I wasn't impressed with the difference from Stencyl and Stencyl 2.0, 3.0 seems like it will be a lot better.

Hey guys! I've actually been on Stencyl for awhile. I just decided to join the forums now though :P. Anyhow, I have my first game coming up, called Escaping Monochrome. It's about a guy that lives in a town ruled by an evil dictator who has sucked out all of the color in what the citizens think is the entire world. The country is heavily guarded, and anyone who sees outside is executed. So you have to go through a bunch of levels 'n' stuff :P I'm really looking forward to finishing it!
Oh yeah, I know some ActionScript, HTML, CSS, very little PHP, and JavaScript. I don't think Scratch counts :P
