it should be the same - just remember that y starts at the bottom not the top
so you need to reverse it
so If yMouse <= 20 -> set YCoordinate to position of "Camera" - 1

or you can just check your distance away from qualified objects - such as door/chest etc and activate it based on that
depends if your going procedural or static world - either use a map editor and just load it in - or figure out some formula and do it in a loop - you can also use transposing - pm in discord for a...
use both - freedom of choice
firefly releases are at the moment is bundled with fusion - so if your fusion version is higher than 292.0 you have the latest firefly
the blue world editor is from the last version and hasnt...
turn the material from solid to normal map solid
texture 1 = your colourmap (aka diffuse)
texture 2 = your normal map (aka that bluey purple one)
tick add tangents option a bit further down ...
désolé non c'est principalement en anglais car je ne parle pas très bien français :(
i'll take it
there was a particle editor some months back - not sure if the source was ever released though
it depends how the model/character was made - each material has a slot - some characters use 1 slot for everything some characters use multiple slots - firefly is compatible with both
android has been half done - the engine is working fine - just gotta sort out the turn it into apk bit
ios and html5 are planned - but no idea when
i meant fusion version - not firefly version
theres is - steam auto does it or you can select update from the help menu if your on stand alone - if your version is higher than 292.0 you have the latest version
it was released last week ?
could be 1 of 2 things
try it in standard mode
if that doesnt work - send it me on discord (click the link in my signature) or in here if you dont mind it being public
under this message is a firefly advert then under that it says Clickteam on discord - click on discord - and it should let you into our server - DM me in there
which code are you using ?
but yes update hopefully this week if not next
ok so let me try to explain the logic :-
you add the file pole.obj from your hard drive @ d:\firefly\ to binary
so now its [game.exe]/pole.obj
when you run your game you need to extract...
dont choose it - hit use expression and just type "pole.obj" or BinFileTempName$("pole.obj")
the pole.obj should be in .exe or in the zip
load resource as BinFileTempName$("resources.zip")
then load object as "pole.obj"
if just the obj
add the zip file to the Binary Files tab in the Data Elements editor, and then in the events you can extract it to a temp file with the Extract Binary File function (you can retrieve the temp...
yeah - there are some people who like to rip files and source from .exe's - at least this way if they do they still need to crack your encrypted file afterwards
personally id still put them behind a passworded zip aswell
you can add any file into the binary data of your .exe - either as zip - or as .fbx.
the current version is bugged - dont use cast shadows :(
download the disaster at firefly station free source - that uses a password protected zip file - any q's after that let me know.
sure - just so long as it animates a bone rather than spins as a whole or something
i think 2015 is the latest in my version but unsure - not enough tests on it. feel free send me 1 of each and ill tell you where it breaks
ah i see - yeah over the shoulder is possible, if you want to send me a fbx on discord - ill check if it works with my latest version - due out very soon.
why first person only ?
This was made using NO models - only using built in primitives
Firefly is in continuous development just because it doesn't handle them this week doesn't mean it can't handle them next week.

if you add it to your wishlist in steam they may notify you of a discount if or when one happens - please note if you buy firefly on steam but have a standalone fusion it wont work. so make sure you...
might be better trying to describe what you want the end result to be.
check your secret kays are the same in both the php and your game
also check your host allows .php files
i am working on both currently - but im considering releasing a update without android just to get all the other new stuff out to people.
it does but you will lose it on your steam version
check whats on line 74 compared to your schema for that table.
in the current version firefly will only import older format .FBX so posers outputs probably wont work without converting them.
yes firefly uses the same event editors as normal fusion - but it...
make sure your alpha is a true alpha (use a png from photoshop or similiar) not the fusion inbuilt editor
and make sure your material is set to trans-alpha
hmmm changing near clip would only hide stuff right next to your camera...
Different ways depending on what your doing but
create an object
if object flag 0 = off -> set location x,y,z -> set flag 0 = true
that way your only moving an object you have never moved...
i would guess its a scoping issue - normal scoping rules dont really apply to firefly - so if your moving them on creation - your scoping a different one to the one you think you are
setting your events like this
will give you
25500<-- click me for animation
although i did use 2 images - one for the background and one for the bar
you could just use a firefly 2d image and change its destination width (and its object width if you want to stretch it)
are you talking a 3d bar or a 2d one ?
if you enter your serial from the cd into the passport section of the website, you should be able to download the latest version
if you have added your software to your passport the files will be available in there

it might be better if you pop into our discord - so i can explain things better -> Click here to join our discord
you can do something like
if press space - alt val a = alt val a + 1 - load material "cache" ,1 into index alt val a
probably the mesh index of the object - make a red texture and apply it to all the indexs upto say 100 see if any of the model turns red
i had 1 model have over 3000 index
did you follow the tutorial from page 7 to 9 ? which covers how to apply materials http://library.clickteam.com/firefly/firefly-tutorials/chocobreak3d/page-7/
the index in the material bit is the...

firefly engine object
havent looked into collision mfa yet - but firefly does support raycasting
firefly does come out with the regular ones just not every one
opengl and directX9 are different rendering engines and as such have different ways of doing things - while the outputs should match to a certain degree somethings are handled better by one engine...
at the moment only the diffuse and normal maps are supported - support for the others can be done in shaders currently but not natively yet
its do able - i think but i would suggest a mesh with bones that you could merge between otherwise its gonna look jumpy.
it was scheduled to be the next update but has been pushed back to the one after next.
currently its PC only - however an android compatibilty and ios compatibilty is in the works - html5 is possible if the andriod and ios updates do well i'm sure it will follow.
Fusion fails to scope Firefly created objects properly - thus most of us add a if no material then apply material event, or set an alt value and check against it in the following event.
depending on you game you can use the 2d ones, but a integrated 3d physics system is planned for a future update
as with most things the bigger the better, but minimum is a tough one becuase most things depends on whats going on in the background which of course is upto the programmer in the events, so to use...
just add a primitive sphere - parent it to your object and set size the same colsphere
the issue there is fusion 2.5 isnt very multi-dev friendly :(
although the new world editor does it - its kinda hard at the moment - looking to update the camera to a 2d one soonish
hard to tell without images - but you could hide everything between the mouse and the camera so that you can see it better
send your latest mfa - i'll see why its moving the wrong verts
i havent tested it yet - but you will to offset the origin as you need the x,y of the terrain not the x,y of the world.
try turning collision on the terrain..(but no colsphere) - the mousepick cant collide with it if it cant be collided with.
taken from @...
possibly related to this bug http://bugbox.clickteam.com/issues/4642 i will look into both at the same time.
they are intended once the basic stuff is in, hopefully you will be able to place all nodes in and have them usable from code once inside your events.
realtime shadows are already in - they just need a bugfix.
thanks for that detailed list, shows us exactly which way we should be headed.
you can certainly submit some irrlicht based code -...
why type of functionality do you think it needs ?
record you position to a global value before you go in - set it after you come out
1 - yes - firefly can use your current 2d co-ordinates (transposing) them into 3d
2 - no real limit as such but around 21million in any direction is ok after that float values would start to get...
this uses the current release of firefly
if you have standalone use the file version 171222 if your on steam you need to enter the beta code as per...
A few of you have been asking about animating firefly objects such as planes or billboards or such like.
well much like how you animated in fusions using actives firefly can use those animations...
everything possible in a 2d game should work with firefly
what issue are you having ?
the gizmo should be in all the views ? is it not ?
you can use W and S to move/zoom forwards backwards ??? not sure a zoom is useful in game mode - should i give him a sniper rifle ? (joke)
this bug is caused by the vert editor update being...
do you have a download link to the 1999 editor ? and what features do you think we should implement that it has ?
both of these are connected to how - resizes are handled - 125 messes with numbers - and fullscreen gets confused by 4 cameras and resizes them all to the same size - noted will look into it
a user has reported you cannot move after loading a world - we are aware and will look to fix this isssue asap
Thank you Marv for your time and efforts on Fusion.
a new blog post is due out soon with notes on whats in the update
Please post any bug you discover with the New Firefly World Editor here!
feel free to suggest any improvements we could make.
this might crash your fusion - if you havent updated to the xmas 2017 patch yet.
did you transpose the camera ? - have you done the chocobreak 3D tutorial -> http://library.clickteam.com/firefly/firefly-tutorials/chocobreak3d/ which explains some changes to the 2d stuff.
sure you can - just move the cam up high set its angle to 45 and then use mouse pos to move it - its dead easy if you try you should be ok - if you get stuckk either me or someone else will drum up a...

a user has been using shaders successfully
no andriod exporter as yet so no shaders are not available in the andriod exporter as there isnt one yet
someone had shaders to do that - ive not seen them though :(
@butterfingers - loads of issues you seem to be having maybe better to pop into the discord and have a chat about them -> https://discord.gg/57fKjqr
a lot of this kind of thing was done as part of squatters wolfenstien clone example - have you looked into that ? or the dungeon crawler example.
not dropped, we are with this for years to come, new update very soon, minecraft example is still being worked on, stay tuned.
the issue you have is you have a space in the filename of the texture
instead of "bois example" if you rename it to "bois_example" it will work as expected (please note you will need to resave in...

the notes are there in the debug notes - if your catching them and reading them.
just to highlight that disaster source will not work without the models - it is for learning only
try turning up the frame rate in the project settings and/or ticking machine independent speed
you set the limit yourself, however remember the further you see the more poly's will be on screen ( so try to make use of LOD's etc ) FYI : Firefly Terrain has LOD built in.

i have asked windybeardgames and they have approved the tree for release -> EXE & SOURCE DOWNLOAD
also added rotation and zoom features as requested
not sure that windybeardgames would want his art out there - draw me a tree and ill give ya the mfa :P
i had a lil play with your guy as an example for someone else - hope you dont mind - EXE DOWNLOAD - tree art by windybeardgames

thats one of the things in the FAQ.
depending on how many frames your sprite has you could add each sprite to the material cache then every frame increase the alt val a - then change material to val of alt val a
there is also some more firefly examples in the examples directory.
yes its called render to texture - you need 2 engines and 2 cameras (or more) make one of your materials a render texture, and send the output of one engine to it.
http://library.clickteam.com/firefly/ holds most of the data collated - im in discord for anything more in depth. make sure you @Triadian or message me directly.
a: running off base irrlicht 7.3??...
You could also gradually change your text font color for example if the text color is 0,0,0 and your frame is black you can do 1,1,1 then 2,2,2 then 3,3,3 etc all the way up.
save them as obj, much easier to use and less prone to errors
im gonna answer your first reply as that was closer to what i meant :-
i agree coppercube doesnt really export too well - as it hardcodes your textures for example
which is specific...
load the irr as a static (for now - new features in next version)
ensure your mesh files are correctly setup depending on the software they might not be
not sure about the demise bit but you are a little closer
not possible given the current version. however it is possible however given the complexities of it how would someone define whether they wanted a 1 textured cube a 2 textured cube or 3 4 5 or 6...
everyday is one day closer. but then so is every week, one week closer.
yeah - you create a cube map and map that to the texture
use reflective material - but the mirror wont be realtime - unless you add a camera and a surface texture
nope - im just some dude trying to help people and failing miserably.
needless to say discord was toxic as usual and i regretted going back there the minute people found i was reading - seems its more fun to insult people for no reason than make games nowadays - sad...
already sent you a version that imports fine - im gave up waiting for an export from the world editor.
already there - been there a while.
in the next release of firefly we allow worlds exported from coppercube (free version) in 1 instruction. so possible give that a try too.
although i havent tried it personally, i would assume that it does not affect the 3D viewport as we use a different system to the normal 2d visuals.
possibly android first with ios soon after.
what sort of issue ? you can mail your MFA to me Triadian@Clickteam.com if you want and ill take a look at it for you.
Pr have said that once it reaches a certain saturation level then we will port to others - so far the chances of that happening - very low - unless it somehow gains more followers :(
not at all - in fact transposing it will cause more problems
the position and rototation are given to the child and then offset by the childs position and rotation.
if you are using a zip you need to load a resource package from the engine before you try to load any other asset.

i dont think i'm impatient ?
i used to give some special versions to some users on discord, but until i see a need for it then there is no need for it.
probably almost definitely in 2017 or later.
