was able to figure it out with help from those here and a few other posts i read through. Have the "full" capx uploaded to dropbox with some comments on it for anyone else trying this kind, still planning on adding different features to it, powerups, hands etc, but anyone can use what is here for what they want.
Hello, first post here.
found this program about a week ago, wanted to test it for android publishing, but didn't want to fork over the money if it didn't work/was too complex. I was able to find an older version with a "cracked" license and tested it on a sample program and was able to export a sample game to an apk and it ran perfectly on my tablet!
So since it worked, I decided to actually buy it to get updates / actually use it.
My main goal is to make some little games for my nephew for when he gets a bit older.
I found the flappy bird tutorial and followed it to make one and have just modified the files to be a more "zombie like" and will eventually make an Asci txt version of it.
Its working great, have a start screen, but play button which leads straight into the game.
Question is how to save my score. Currently I have it set to If X of pipe is < Bird.X Add 1 to score. And it counts up just fine.
Just not quite sure the best way to add it to a local variable/use the webstorage plugin to save it. Watched a few tutorials on it, but I think my variables are too different then theirs to make it work using their methods.
I can upload a copy or screenshot of what i currently have If needed once I get home.
I believe what I am trying to do is export "score" value (what appears in my scoretext box) to a webstorage and upon my flying object hitting anything ends game and displays the score.
1. display value
2. upon crash, save value to local key?
3. Load score layout
4. display score/local key
Does that sound about right for the process? Don't really care about having more then 1 highscore or sending out to a server for public viewing.
Sorry for the long post just trying to get as much details out for this. you can view it here to see what i mean by the score under version 1
It currently asks to save information (I would assume its part of the webstorage)
