Hi there ? new user with many questions. I apologize if these have been asked and answered before ? I have searched the forums, and didn?t find what I was looking for.
First off, great application! I use and have used quite a few different ?make your own game apps?. This one stacks up well with the others. I love the interface!
Is there a way to script the events and actions instead of using the UI? I don?t think so, just asking. This would be a great addition.
Is there a way to indicate a color to be used as a transparent color when importing a frame or sprite strip? Currently I am using two applications to do this. First one to draw the sprite(s), second one to set a color as transparent, and save as a gif.
Platform Vs. Physics:
For my test first game to get a feel for this, I went with a platform. I set the ?floors? as solid, and gave my player the platform behavior. I wanted my player to be able to throw objects, and those objects to have the physics behavior. But ? The objects with the physics behavior fell right through my solid floor objects.
Do I have to:
A. Update the ?floor? objects to have the physics behavior, and set them to immovable? As well as set my player with the physics behavior, and control his movements manually? (Otherwise he falls right through the floors if he is platform, and the floors are physics.)
B. Create a floor object with the physics behavior and place it over the floor that is set to solid, and leave my player as platform? I have noticed that setting an object with both physics ? (immovable) and solid behaviors does not work.
Player object passing through floor objects.
In this case - the player is platform, and the floor objects are solid. I added a crawl animation to my player, and have him crawling under a low floor. But, if I stand up, the player gets stuck in the floor object above. Is there a way to not allow the player sprite to go through the floor (solid) sprite? To fix this, I created an invisible object and placed that in the space between the low floor and the floor. Essentially the space that the player is crawling through. In an event, when the user is overlapping this object, I force the animation to be one of the crawl animations, basically not allowing the player to stand up. This works, but was wondering if there was an easier way.
That?s it for now. Sure I will have many more to come. And I am definitely planning on purchasing this very soon.
Thanks in advance!
