Just wondering how hard it would be to implement a feature if you wanted a click inside a polygon to move the player to the nearest node; rather than ignoring any click inside a polygon.

Just wondering how hard it would be to implement a feature if you wanted a click inside a polygon to move the player to the nearest node; rather than ignoring any click inside a polygon.
I was excited when you hinted that your original pathfinding idea could be improved for Click & Point games. This is very impressive, thank you.
Bubble IO :), great example.
Cool idea, thanks for sharing :)
Can I suggest that you create a seperate example of your issue without the rest of your game. It will help you to isolate the issue your having, and help other users make sense of what your trying to...
Solved it using Alt Values for each joystick direction. It limits the direction by ignoring button bashing, I've also blocked the snake from overlapping itself using the same Alt Values, removing the...
Thanks for the share, your examples are always very useful.
I’m glad I could help. Unfortunately, I don’t know enough to give you advice on optimisation. Best of luck :)
Line 73 and 74 is the issue. When you create your Scythe on the left of screen you are making 2 rather than one.30955 just delete my yellow counter.
Hi there, I've changed line 68 and 69. It makes the Scythe to look at the Chick (set direction towards chick) once when created using flag. If you use the last direction of the Grim Reaper, due to...

Here's a challenge -
Hi there, I apdapted some code from this thread https://community.clickteam.com/threads/109206-Drawing-a-path-with-actives
It gave me an idea to make a similar movement...
If the issue is playing short audio files, I'd try .ogg files for audio.
Looks fine, I'm running 1920 x 1080 :)
Care to share a small example. It will be easier to find a possible fix. When you say audio, do you mean a typing effect or an actual voice over.
I sent a PM, I'm sure I can help you get it sorted.
Wow, that's a great effect. Nice work :D
Not sure if it's the solution, yet have you set Hebrew as your language in the build settings?
You may already know this, but you can change an 'Edit Box' to read only in its properties.
try this kind of idea :)
Agreed, I’m fairly certain I can’t remember it behaving like this in the past.
Can't explain why, but you can force the frame to 0, and then restore animation frame to get around your issue. It seems, it remembers the last frame it was on when it changes direction.
That's a classic, what a clever idea X)
It's really neat what you've created. I had a look but I can see you've fixed it already. I couldn't work it out, when you say the problem was on line 40 what value did you need to add to get it to...
I agree it wouldn’t be illegal to decompile your own source code. Yet it certainly could be illegal if you intend on using someone else’s intellectual property without permission. Yet it’s a mute...
Most game makers, if not all game makers are concerned with keeping their code and hours of work safe from being ripped off or cloned. If decompling was readily available it wouldn't be very secure;...
What your asking for is to decompile an .exe - as far as I know you can't do it, and shouldn't do it even if you could because it's illegal. If you need to recover your lost .mfa files I'd use...
Have you tried to play with the (ball.bounce) security option of the bouncing ball. The chaos might be because it's set too high.
Good sugestion, the link I posted suggested that, and it's what I went with too
You could use this approach, I’ve used it before for a random name generator and it works well https://community.clickteam.com/threads/72535-Random-Number-Range-Not-allowed-to-repeat
Have you tried running the profiler to see what's slowing your framerate down? I'd start there if you haven't tried it yet.
The mfa will only work if the files are in the correct spot when it's built. What I'll do is send the exe in a zip. If the exe works I'll post a video step by step.
I tried your exe and it didn’t work. I added your files to my d drive and put them in a folder named TEST. I opened your mfa and changed the data elements by adding your files to the binary data...
That was quick, thank you :D
Awesome start. I can't wait until you've implemented more. Thank you for your share X)
Very clever, well done.
Link is dead :(
The increased speed sounds ideal. Does the internal list object also have a larger maximum line capacity compared to the original list object?
There seems to be several tools available, here an example link https://beebom.com/free-tools-to-create-your-own-fonts/
No. 10, tool looks like it could be useful.
& no. 2 tool letís you use...
If you can post a basic example .mfa or link (doesn't have to be your with your graphics or your whole game code) I'm sure there would be a simple fix.
I've done some basics, yet I can't figure out how to get the bubbles moving more realistically. The original game used (hidden) air flow direction detectors. If any one wants to mess around with what...
When you select the movement of your active to path, in the actives properties - select edit path. Then choose - new line for each line of the square you're after. You should also choose loop the...
Yes is possible, here's an example:29906
You could also look at this post, it should be able to do what you're after with a bit of exploring the code:...
In line 15 delete set pause to "Yes" and delete the call "Blocked" after 50 event loop.
Leave the 'bounce' command.
HI there see if this post helps https://community.clickteam.com/threads/87830-Round-Circle-Countdown-Timer?highlight=Round+Health
Great to hear, best of luck :)
After a quick search on the forums I found this post https://community.clickteam.com/threads/103485-String-Parser-BUG?highlight=String+Parser

Here's how I'd go about it using the file object. I didn't change any settings and it works fine using the default input ANSI to output unicode. If you do change the runtime settings the only thing...
Out of interest Could you share an example of your problem? Looking at your MFA and it’s properties could help identify your issue.
Iíve had a similar problem in the past. I think it might be to do with - the output depending on the "Character encoding options / Output" property in the Runtime properties of the application. In my...
If you set the xvel to zero - it triggers the collision animation. I don't think this was designed to have the enemy stop.
Could you get it working at all? If not perhaps it's not the best example to be working from.
Sorry, I tried to help yet I canít seem to get a hold of the select object extension that's compatible with the current build. Without it I can't open your mfa.

Unfortunately there’s no copy paste for paths and there’s definitely no way to mirror it. Best of luck, your solution sounds like it will work perfectly albeit it will take a lot of time.
I'm not sure if you're aware, yet you can make multiple movements amd rename them if you like. One could be for facing right, and the other for facing left. Just note the movements start at zero and...
Oh I see, I just know that I’ve had problems with using groups in the past, I thought that’s what might be breaking it.
If you pull the lines you refer to, out of the group activation it works fine. Your bug has more to do with the set up of groups, than with the code itself. 29804
Looks spot on to me and if it works without any glitches you have a winner. Well done!
Yes that will work, as long as it doesnít contradict your other code. For example if the bomb overlaps two objects at the same time it may cause what would appear to be a glitch.
Yes I agree it is a problem, as you canít have an object be ordered in two different places at the same time. If you think of your problem in terms of using layers you couldnít have the one object...
I’d do a mock up on paper to organise your order first. Firstly by what you’ve described the scarecrow, robot and slime puddle would have to be behind the enemies. Then make sure the bombs are in...
Looks like your logic is back the front. The first icon when using 'Move behind object' is the object that will be moved to the back, The second icon refers to the object it will be behind (you have...
There might be a way to help, yet without seeing the MFA anyone helping would just be guessing.
if you set up a counter to the value of your delay set up you will notice that it's what is causing your problem. I added a trigger value in the ball that should make the delay run more smoothly....
I can confirm deleting line 3 and replacing with another blank empty comment also stops the crash. This more or less confirms it's more to do with the conversion.
I could be wrong but by the icon of the .mfa it looks like it may have been originally an older build; maybe the games factory? Perhaps the problem with the comments not being compatible had more to...
You could post a MFA, stripped down that just shows the problem. Just a guess, does your sign active have any animation? if it does, I’d check that the hot spot hasn’t changed in a particular frame.
Hi daryuss, this is not a solution - yet you could always make an active the same colour as the grey on the road & the exact size of road ie. that fits both the fat and skinny road sections. If you...
Have you tried the latest beta version? Itís just been released: https://community.clickteam.com/threads/107988-Build-292-27-Beta-version
Looks like your hot spots need an adjustment on each frame of your character animation (left and right dir). Set the hotspot to 16 x and 16 y on each frame of animation and your animation will be...
Nope, I've never seen that sort of problem before and I've gone through a work PC every two years and several brands.
Wow this looks awesome, congratualations.
It was a long shot, I was just interested if it could be done. If anyone know if it's possible please share.
Do you mind sharing your mfa? Just a though is it possible to get an image URL to an active picture Then to an active. It’s a double step, yet If it works it could be a possible work around.
Amazing, this is a very useful extension :O
Your demo works great, you should release it for sure.
Can you put up an example .mfa of the problem, it doesn't have to be your whole game just the problem.
Correction - I was able to re-download Firefly using my Click-store account download links. Thanks team :)

In the bouncing ball movement properties of both spike actives you need to change the randomizer to 0 and the security to 0. You currently have it set as the default for a bouncing ball which is...
Nice work, keeps me coming back. Classic but new X)
Here's what I mean about inaccurate collision detection.
Line 49 can take away lives as well, yet it doesn't work because the spikes are not set to ignore being inactive if too far from the frame. If you change that, then it works without having to change...
By the way on line 49, I would change it to the player is out of the playing area set lives to zero. That way you don't have to wait for the player to be pushed back onto the screen to get destroyed....
Yes, good point. I suggest trying this. Get rid of what I previously suggested and instead in line 48 add the condition: Set y position on spike_wall2 to Y(position of spikewall1+457)
That way it...
Here's an easy fix - on line 48, add conditions: spikewall_1 - set y position to 12 & spikewall_2 - set y position to 469. This is where the spike walls should end up anyway, therefore forcing them...
You're on the right track, what you need to do is always center the display from the red active that moves to the right. Center Display can be found in the story board controls. It will mess up your...
Try this link: https://community.clickteam.com/threads/107548-spike-walls-disappearing-after-a-while
It because once the walls are on your player the condition for taking a life is only true if there is a collision. So for the first two times it takes a life yet as the collision is still a true...
Try un-ticking destroy if too far from frame. It might be the problem.
Thanks man, I'll check it out X)
Please share XD
X) Can't wait to purchase for Xbox One. It's a brilliant game.
Thanks for the share :)
Cool game :)
I suggest separating the animation part so that they trigger differently. Here's what I mean:
You could also fix your values for speed using greater and less than. For example, your speed...
Here's a fix, there may be other solutions though.
Same idea, even if it’s not the player object. The only other thing that I a think of is to make sure the planes don’t bounce in the same direction. I couldn’t actually see the glitch, for me the...
No problem, here to help if you ever need it :D
You could try in line 13 instead of an 'Always condition' change to enemy overlapping enemy and then negate. That way when the enemy planes collide they will give up following the player until they...
That is strange, I definitely got a warning saying I could build, yet the multitouch would be Ignored. Yet I've tried again and no warning.
I agree that it's not behaving right though.
Hi Limeatron, if you haven't got it sorted yet, put up an small mfa with your issue and I'll get it sorted. Over the years I've had many similar issues.
Did you notice the warning when you built the Html5 file? It says that the MultipleTouch object isn't compatible with Html 5. However, in the extension manager Html 5 is listed under MultipleTouch as...
I guess I pointed it out as there seems nothing in your code that makes the player fall more slowly while on the wall.
I haven’t had much time to play with it, yet it seems your applying an x change (horizontal) to the movement while touching the wall yet perhaps you need a y change (vertical)?
It because the physics movement acts independently. If you remove the physics engine it works as it should, therefore the problem is with the physics movement. Perhaps where you have the active stops...
You need to add some conditions when the player collides with the spike wall stop movement (as you have it set up as ball movement). Hope that helps you figure it out a bit more.
Wow, this looks really promising, Nice work. Can't wait to play it XD
You need to disable the destroy if too far from the frame. What's happening is your code doesn't work because your selector actives (blue and red circles) get destroyed. If you change the screen size...

This is awesome, any chance of a PC release?
I haven't use firefly much yet I'd be amazed if you can do it without firefly TBH.
That gives it a great sense of depth and anticipation. It really suits your underground mining theme.
Wow this has come a long way. Looking great XD
If you choose set boid attributes, you can select avoid obstacles. I'm assuming if you use backdrops instead of actives and set the backdrop to obstacle, the boids would avoid / go around them.
Great to hear, was it hard to implement the objects cycling when they are clicked? Do you mind sharing how you achieved it.
If you put up an example I’m certain there’ll be a solution.
You could add another group or groups to distinguish between the objects. That is when you say group you mean qualifiers.
Iím not at my pc, so I canít confirm this idea. As long as mouse over an object can be negated it should work. Have you tried to use - mouse is over object A, as well as mouse is over object B...

Yes, I would play with the gravity setting. The floating sensation is because the gravity is too low.
In that case I suggest you need a Window size of 800 X 480 and a Frame size of 1600 X 480.
Sorry had to change file due to being 400 not 480 - use the first one listed
I increased the frame size to make sure it was 3X wider than the window size of 640. Then it's just a matter of dividing the buttons evenly as though it was three windows wide. If you divide...
It enjoyable :)
I did find the jump a little frustrating because of the floating effect. Yet, if it's a deliberate feature, it certainly is a challenge. Nice pixel work.
Chily I think you mean it's not built in / (optimised) for 2.5+
It's probably best to leave it being compatible with 2.5 & 2.5+

It’s not necessarily a bug. Many extensions and projects for that matter behave differently depending on the target platform.
Oops, there is no problem. Just update the 'advanced Path movement' in the extension manager. It fixed it for me ;)
Scrap that, I should have checked first. They just needed an update. Sorry for jumping the gun XD
I'm not sure how long these extensions haven't been working when compiling a Windows exe; yet I can't use the 'advanced Path movement' and 'path-finding object' extensions. I was alerted to the...
See next reply...
Working nicely :)
That’s great news :)
I'd do it more along these lines, but others would do it differently :)
Happy to help if you Post an example of the issue, (doesn’t have to have your artwork just dummy animations will do). I only say this because it will be easier to demonstrate a solution.
The whole game play and graphic design is mind blowing. I’m super impressed.
Looks appealing, students will love it.
Any time, my friend :)
Actually I have already done that for you in my example above. However, I did forget to add if an orange overlapped an apple - so I've added that. I've added a deactivated example to show the fruit...
Just combine my solution in the other thread with this one ;)
Here's how to do it, I've used Alt values but it's pretty much the same as the suggested solution.
I can confirm it works for me, in fusion and as an .exe
I've changed your formula, I had to rearrange it and account for the width of the border line. I've isolated the fruit creation and tested, it now works perfect XD
Here's the fixed file
Glad to see you got it sorted :)
On the file you hosted, your Frame size is 800x480. Your (game) Window size is 600x480, They need to be the same.
This is the frame properties / size
Goto my example above click the game...
This should help 27773
Your frame size is 800 x 480 yet your window size is 600 x 480. You need to match the sizes by changing the window size to 800 x 480.
If you send a PM i'll have a look. I've made a few HTML games, I can't promise I'll find the problem yet I'll be happy try and find the issue.
I was going to look at your file, yet it says need decryption key to download :(
It seems to be the Tray Icon extension. Delete it from the first frame and it stops crashing.
Awesome, going to purchase now XD
Wow, very atmospheric. Loved it.
Nice, I love this genre. I’m going to try this out for sure :)
