I really enjoyed Sparckman's videos and tutorials. Helped me so much and i'm shocked he has left the scene =(
Weirdly, i got this semi-working until i got a EDRT.exe error and lost my changes!
Well i tried for a while , had some semi-sucess but for some reason f2.5 crashed on me. I couldn't figure it out 100% using the list object. Sometimes the counter linked with the list object was...
thanks.. i might try this . I started trying to use an array using an example i found here but it's not quite working the way i was wanting.
Basically making a quiz type of game - i have set it up so that it randomises some questions, and then displays the question based on the result. I have done this with a counter random(10)...
Very cool, only just found about this. Can't justify paying the cost though to see if i like it. Will there be a demo?
This should be given away to legacy 2.5 dev owners who paid massive costs...
Yes sorry frame size not screen size (which is 1024 x 768 i believe).
Pretty sure i tried that but shall have another go later, thanks for replying.
Got a little demo of my "game" (more a experiment really) but i am having some issues.
Screen size is 1024 x 5000
Basically need to start top of the screen and work down the screen....
surely you need to set it so that the screen is always centering on your moveable character?
Do you mean just a overhead view? That really isn't difficult to make - or do you mean where the character dives and the screen catches up?
Feel slightly cheated I spent 400-500 quid on all of this stuff really but oh well. I might buy it anyway to have on steam and to get the last exporter I haven't got yet..
However what does this...
Thanks for the suggestions. Still a bit unsure but it gives me somewhere to start..
I'm trying to a create a app for work that does the following:
User fills out a form.
Name (edit box)
Time (dropdown with 5 choices, ie 9-10am, 12-1pm)
Might not be of help but could see if vlc has an active x for this. Of course they will need vlc installed.
I have stripped my mfa and reported the bug with mfa and apk file. I only have the webview object on the mfa which causes a complete crash on marshmellow.
Unfourtunatly that doesnt fix it. It still comes up with a black screen and crashes..
If i delete the webview it works fine. I tried reinstalling the object but same issue.
I can remove these...
Some of my old apps work fine on marshmellow, so it would appear there is a reason why i just get a black screen on one app.. i'll do some testings.
From initial testings, it would appear...
I updated to marshmellow on my sony xperia z5 the other day.
I tried to open my app (rain sounds sleep easy) and discovered that it gets stuck on a black screen.
I also noticed in...
worked fine first time updating my app. Just need to do one more of them..
I had figured how to do this myself the day before i found your tutorial. The only thing is you do not cover movment/acceleration. The problem i had was pressing right key should give 150 force to...
i'd make sure you have the other api actually installed.. i had the same problem a while back. Check android studio just in case.
I'm pretty sure it works with both. Bit of an oversight otherwise.
thats good to hear.
I got email from google with the same warning.
you can set transparency of the objects real time..
No they don't. However, you can check how long since the app was closed to when it was re opened. (I'm sure someone will correct me if i'm wrong - i certainly know there are people that have done...
I checked the extension forum but it appears that it was never made.
You could do this by using the print obect, and then "print client zone" to print the application window. However you would...
I have reported the bug, but in this beta your app will crash (on android at least) if you have any of the following:
"is running as android application"
"is running as ios application"
Thanks but that really only seems to work with ini files. The installer would be an option, but at the same time i might as well as just supply the .exe file along with my mmf.exe
I know someone was making or requesting a extension to be made, i don't know if this was ever completed. I'd check the extension forum section just in case.
Any ideas? I really need to complete this today =(
I'm glad it's not just me then.
When I build the app it does mention an error that it won't be included in the app but the fact it's been added to the binary data shouldn't bring this error up..
Wonder if i can get any advice? I've checked several threads without much luck.
Basically i have a windows app that can be used to change the default sound device. I use a utility...
Yes it will be the same. However the mouse pointer will still be over the object after the tap, so keep that in mind.
The only thing i can think of is putting everything in a group that you want to pause for a second and deactivate it and then reactivate after a second. Might be a bit messy.. but would work.
doesnt look too difficult if you follow this: http://jmsliu.com/1207/add-google-admob-in-ios-apps.html
you have to do it all in xcode though. also, that is a few years old so things might have...
For $3 it would be rude of me not to give it a go! Looks pretty good from the videos i've been watching!
Yeah i spent the evening getting this installed on my PC. It was a bit of a faff at first but at least i can get rid of my old mac. I didn't try USB (ie connecting a ipad to the vm) but i'm sure it...
Would F2.5 cope at a resolution that high? I've heard some people had issues with slowdown etc at high resolutions (ie above 1080p).
I guess apps (rather than games) would work better though.
Hmm i'll look into the VMWARE thing. I have a 2007 mac which still works for xcode but to be honest i never use it for much else and it's been a long time since i have made a IOS app due to the...
Yeah if you untick the "use system font in text objects" it will work. However, it scrolls down on my device ie
It might look better on a tablet, but something to be aware of. There might...
have you tried drop down menu?
what phone? maybe post a mfa.
What API are you using? Change to 22 and try.
You need developer really for advertisments.
I'm having an issue with webview. Are my events at fault?
Basically, it should resize to the window on the phone. However it doesn't always resize properly..
try it out by pressing...
I haven't had much luck still, i might have to just release the app sooner and maybe fix later. It's still strange when normal buttons work but customs dont produce the pressed state.
Here is an example of the problem.
On PC the custom button works fine and so does normal buttons to my knowledge.
Pressing the two buttons in the mfa however will show the issue, it skips the...
Well, bitmap buttons seem to have a slight issue on android (for me at least) as in if the buttons are on top of each other (even visable/invisable) the button press causes some weird problem like...
I could understand the look/theme but surely the string/ini combo should work regardless?
have spent some more time with this and no joy still =(
It's interesting on the pc the dropdown menu lists item 1 as blank whilst android displays whatever in top of the list.
normal clicks.. ill try upload a example mfa later.
I am converting some of my standard buttons into bitmapped custom buttons. However, they don't work properly and do some strange things!
I have images set to normal / pressed. Sometimes they don't...
I've had a big headache with this. It works fine on the PC but on android... nope.
Basically i have a few dropdown menus. User picks an option, which sets a string and writes to a ini...
You could also make up some fake entries so that if a user modifys the ini then it would "currupt" it if it detected changes. Also make it not so easy for someone to know exactly what to modify ie
There you go. I am using a Sony Xperia Z1. Thanks
I just found that out =)
This does work, it just doesn't look as nice/professional as the "default" way. I think i might keep the default method for the time being but could change my mind in the...
Ahh good point. I was going to change this but was worried if the font would mess around on peoples phones for some reason. I'll give it a go later, thanks.
Is there a way of changing the spacing in dropdown boxes?
There seems to be a lot of wasted space, and ideally i need my app to show more on the screen rather than scrolling down. I've...
Fingers crossed this is updated in a future update, i had to remove this function from my app so i could submit it. I'll make a bug report i think =)
I have Sony.
But what is the purpose of sound control if you can't do it on the fly?
The user won't know the volume until the sample is playing..by which time they can't change its volume :(
Nope that didn't fix anything. It actually caused my dropdown boxes to double twice the size though! (Creating an event to change vertical size fixes it though)
MMF2.5 Dev 284.10
I could try updating to 285.1 but don't see anything relating to that in the changelog notes.
Is this a bug in the android exporter?
I have tried many things (pausing channel, then increasing main volume etc) but nothing seems to work. I'll just have to remove this from my app if it can't...
I have created a simple volume control on my android app. Basically a sound up and sound down button.
A sound clip can be chosen by the user.
when the sound clip is playing, i have...
absolute legend! working great thanks and i learnt a bit along the way.
(this is the basic file without the URL ENCODES)
in any case, you need to choose a name, school and press the start and then stop and have some text in the edit box before...
Thanks guys. It's not the CORS thing - tried that.
I also replaced the code with MPnetbox suggestion, although now data doesn't seem to post from android or PC.
Someone must have got it working...
Hi Jeff,I guess without looking at phpmyadmin you wouldn't see much.
Basically all the app does it gather details - name, school, notes and time and submits these to a server.
It works fine on...
This is using php to submit data to a database, not Google play.
thanks i'm pretty sure i already looked at that. I've already got a game that submits scored on google play, so i don't know why this app isn't working isn't sending data. As i have said, on pc it's...
Unfortunately this didn't work =(
If anyone could have a check that would be great.. thanks.
Just bizarre works fine on PC but android is a no no.
Ah I think I missed that. I even Checked a previous game that does something similar - I must have missed the Internet option. Cheers Jeff.
On the pc, my app runs fine. It collects some info from choices made in the app and submits to my sql/phpmyadmin. The data shows up and i know it works.
However, the data does not send...
This has happened with my game too. It used to loop fine on the last android OS but the newer one adds a gap.
I've spent a while trying to get this working, with no much luck. If anyone else has an example that's a bit more straight to the point that would be great (i'm sure it would be good on nivrams...
Thanks. Looks really good! I'll check it out properly later.
Hi popcorn I think I get what you mean. If you still have the mfa file ( if at all) I'd love to see an example.
I'd love to know this too. It kinda breaks my app otherwise.
I'll post an example up in a bit. Thanks.
My app uses the Get Object for an android app.
It works fine with the pc, but on android it just crashes the app straight away. I've tested this with removing any events from get object and it...
thanks again. It's all working and updating my database with the time as well now =)
awesome work guys!

It's stuff like this that make me worry about clickteam =(
Has work on this stopped then? I bought the Html5 exporter today thinking I could port over some of my games.
Reading through this it sounds like a lot of broken promises!
pretty sure you can do this.

edit: although it has crashed occasionally...
yes, i tried using my works email details but we do use SSL. I could try the non ssl but not confident it will fix the issues.
edit: didnt appear to work, although it's possible port 25 is blocked.
Yeah it's defo broken. I think clickteam should maybe remove any mention of this object of the comparison page between F2.5 and F2.5 Dev until it works again.

I haven't updated my ios app since last april or so. Maybe chartboost has changed, and that is why my app doesn't create money anymore? It still get's played often.. but since last year i haven't...
is it really true you can not generate profits with iAds? I really thought they did okay.
Using chartboost made a little profit, still not enough to actually claim yet and it's been a year for me....
+1 i think this is a pretty major thing that needs done. I kinda feel monetization is pretty useless at the mo on IOS>
If he was working full time on it, i'd say a few months isn't that fast. I guess he could use a majority of the code from the first game anyway.
Awesome results though!
Looks interesting! Might give this a go - as long as it will post the score on facebook i'd be happy!
I basically just want a little app that will change user passwords. ie it searches on AD , find the user and will allow to change the user password and do other bits.
hi i downloaded and think i installed this okay but it doesn't show up in 2.5 dev?
I have used Fusion 2.5 dev to make some little tools for work and have also been asked to allow my tool to access our AD servers so that we can change student passwords and re enable them...
I am just unhappy that chartboost never got fixed/added to IOS and the facebook extension we got told would be coming still hasn't (and it's been nearly a year). I had to scrap a near finished game...
I'll upload an example in a bit if it helps.
I wonder if anyone can help?
Back in march i released an app on ipad and iphone. I then released an update a couple weeks later when i got the dev version and added leaderboards.
nice guide, i didn't really find it difficult to implement in the first place BUT what i would love is to see a hi score table that goes higher than 10. I spent hours re editing the php and mmf2.5 to...
Whilst i agree the graphics would be unprofessional to use, the sounds are pretty much the same as any other sound sources out there. Most of them are quite effective i have found.
i never got that working properly when i tried it.. if anyone can provide an example of it working then that would be great.
yeah i probably should have waited before buying my dev version and android cos i havent really used anything really that fusion 2.5 didnt do but it's still good software. Might get the html5 runtime...
Yeah it's been probably a year and nothing has been shown. It's a shame because i had to scrap an app because i got fed up waiting for it's release.
excellent, will look forward to them =)
I hope so Jeff, but I don't think it's ideal to rely on your users to create (pretty much) essential extensions when they should really be offered as standard.
It's also been 8 months since fusion...
I'm afraid I agree with you there. I love the clickteam products, but we are promised extensions which never come and it's very difficult to recommend the software when it fails to do basic things...
this sounds much butter than the exisiting set up.
still waiting for the extenssion for this.. gave up trying. That was like 4 months ago now =/
JRP, I tried this a while ago and had some issues so I gave up. I too tried with 100 scores, but that meant having 300 strings (at least - ie name, score,date) on a frame. MMF2.5 kept crashing so I...
i tried to get it working with more than 10, but never managed properly.. i got it to show more but it just messed up so gavee up and stuck with 10.
All we are told are that it's coming. I just wish some of these things were made a priority. We have been told it's coming soon for a while and that was months back.
I had to cut some bits from my...
Yeah I looked but it only makes a copy of the file when you save, not automatically every 15 minutes or so.

The strange thing is it's already got a space in the title on that page =/
After you search and find it, the game shows and the name/company name has a space.
I published my android app yesterday. It shows on the google play store using the link from the dev center. However if i search on the store or try to find it any other way then it doesn't...
Yeah it needs fixing, i hope clickteam can make a new extension. The basic method is okay.. but well, i haven't really earned that much from the adverts.
Hey outcast, do you keep with the standard 10 scores on jeffs online score system or have you got more than 10 working? Also, on android (at least) do you have problems inputting more than one name...
One last thing if anyone is reading..
When a player submits his score on the PC he can enter two names ie John Smith
On the android, it only allows one name ie John.

Basically my app is crashing on one frame. I had another frame causing issues but i scrapped both frames and made them from scratch and one works whilst another doesnt.
Any ideas? I...
Pretty sure the frames have become currupt (especially when i try and copy paste into a new application, m2.5 freezes.). Ill figure a work around.
Finally got the php online scoreing working (10 players but oh well).
Anyway, i have a active object on the title screen (a leaderboard icon). When i click it, the game crashes...
There are a few more pages, just search..

i'd set it to the max, 20,000 just to be safe..
Well, firstly i would say most games exported from mmf are slow on iphone 4. They should be fine on anything 4S upwards though. Also, ipad2 should be fine i would have thought.

oh wow, it's weird because it seemed to work when i tested in xcode but as soon as it was on the appstore it didn't work..
It would save me a lot of hassle to know if this is the case or not,...
holy crap, that looks amazing.
weirdly my leaderboards are not working properly either. Well, one of them appears to but not the other.
Hey, I updated my ios game with the gamecenter object and set up the leaderboards.
I tested before submitting and it all seemed to work - the only thing i did was delete test data.
Thanks I shall look in a bit. The thing is the script is obviously working, but only for the first ten scores - which is making me think i haven't changed something in the other script. When i look...
have you tried downloading the tutorial for the gamecenter object? im sure i downloaded a leaderboard mfa..
in anycase i was surprised how easy it was to set up. i think it only took an hour or...
Yes I tried that as well, but it display nothing.

I was using Jeffs online score tutorial and have set up everything and its working (i want this for android and pc).

Yes any news on this stephen =)

You have tried turning off smooth resizing right?
it would work as long as you didnt use any developer specific extensions.
You could either add the content to each frame (ie hidden or a hidden layer) or you could have a completly seperate frame with the level complete info and record the last level you were on as a...
I only ever got the ad to show once..
Also, i found the chartboost examples in the example folder. However.. when i load them i get an error that Androiddialogs.mfx can not be found.
Hmm ill have another look, as i said i didnt have to do any messing with the IOS one to get it to work though.
I spent a while last night getting chartboost working with my android app.
I set it to trigger after a global variable was reached.
Now, I got this working BUT it doesn't really seem to...
a re install fixed it. I think im having some success with chartboost now.
weirdly the chartboost object only shows up when i am making a pc project. I have to then cut and paste the object into my android project. Very weird!?
I got developer =)
Does anyone have an example mfa of doing this? for some reason i'm having a issue replicating it.
I think this was passed onto the developer of the android version. I wonder if he is making any progress?
chartboost does work manually with your game, but yeah it would be much better to have...
I think some of these are being made already but..
Social Extensions (facebook/twitter integration).
Chartboost ads & other ad networks.
a pause extension (is this even possible?)
i seriously doubt the wii u exporter from clickteam would be anywhere near $1000. It would be more niche than the ios/android exporters so i'd expect it a little more though.
The xbox xna exporter...
That has changed apparently. I was speaking to some guys and they have told me currently there are two devkits - web framework and disk based games and one for Unity. The web framework is $2000 and...
Pretty sure the dev kit isn't too much ($1500-3000 im sure i read) and Nintendo even give away free dev kits if they really want your game on the console from what i read.
I would have said each frame have all the sound board buttons for that person. Just assign a wav file / mp3 to each button and play it when clicked. A soundboard is one of the easiest things to make...
Yes, please someone take this on!
Thats exactly right. I'm surprised why there is a limit (even if it is 20,000) though.
could i request an example of using the in app object to do this? i was wondering the same thing myself. Must be quite easy to hack an ini on an android.
Yes that's want i meant. Not quite sure i have noticed any issues with my game (scrolls sideways).
I have messed around a bit - i settled on 1024 x 600 (landscape) for my sony xperia z1 (it has 1920 x 1080 resolution). It seemed to fit quite well, especially as originally 1024 x 768 squashed the...

You should just be able to install their SDK in xcode but i'm not sure how the adverts work ie i doubt you would be able to get them running at certain times without having an actual object for...
I'll reinstall it sometime i think. Maybe i accidentally deleted something. So much easier with the android export..
Hmmm i never got this working. I still have been having to manually enter the chartboost data into xcode but i dont really want to do that. Could i get this updated chartboost? (i am using f2.5)
the android is quite easy to get working. Having actually signed up to google play just yet though to submit apps.
I would imagine the service tablet could just run exe?
Literally just bought the android exporter. I only have regular Fusion 2.5. I can still add chartboost manually right without getting the dev version? (like i can do with IOS).
Strange I am just finishing up a simular game and i have no issues on my ipad2 or windows.
I managed to include chartboost in my IOS by following the instructions chartboost provide. However i could only get this to work to display apps when you first load the app and if you...
Oh wow I'll try this again. I could have sworn I overwrote the newer clickteam version but if this works I'll be happy :-)
I manually entered the details going by the chartboost guide. However, the events to trigger the adverts didnt work. Maybe I shall try again and only add the chartboost folder/frameworks rather than...
Strangely my mac has stopped running parallels. It just complains about the mac not beeing able to run in virtual mode and bombs out.
