I only have 5 options. Nothing about apps for mobile phones :( Is this developer only?
Sorry to bring this back up but I'm getting something similar on my LG KP500 'Cookie'. It says 'Manifest is invalid or content file is corrupt.

Yeah, it's a tiled-based game with each tile having a movement point attached to it. I'll have a good read of the book when it arrives and go from there. :)

Thanks, but it's asking me to install Overlay Redux extension, you don't happen to know where that is by any chance do you?
Edit: It's ok, I've found it. :)
How to create tabs, how to only put objects on certain tabs, how to have the objects switch in and out when clicking tabs...?
Does anyone know how to use the Tab Control object? It doesn't appear to come with any help (it's greyed out) and I couldn't find anything when I searched?
Any help appreciated. :)
Ahh, the application, I was looking at the object's tabs. Gotch, thanks. ;)
The 3rd tab says Runtime Options and I couldn't find anything about resizing on any of the tabs. I have, however, found "Show Tooltip value" which displays the value as a tooltip when moving the knob...
I'm using the Trackbar object to get the value of the knob's position (which appears in a text box) but the value only changes after I've moved it and let go of the mouse button. How do I get it to...
That's what I've ended up doing Snail and it works quite well, thanks and a Merry Christmas. http://fc04.deviantart.net/fs8/i/2005/328/8/0/Yay_Christmas_by_Deadman2.gif
Thank you Snail, that does seem to work but how do I add an "Else alterable value = 0"? Would I have to create a separate negated condition (so two conditions per box) or is it possible in the same...
How do you add a tooltip for a drop down combo box (kccombo.mfx)?

I tried that but it's 0 whether it's ticked or not.

It's ok, I found a way around it. :)
Ahh, of course! Just move the text, excellent! Thank you very much Stephen. :)
Edit: Ahh, you've used an image as the box, I wanted to have that automatic as there will be different box sizes...
I've been playing around with those and while I can get the rectangle, how do I get the text across the top-left?
Is that an separate object, or part of an object? I would like this border to be dynamic so I could just resize it to fit the option panel it's around, if that's possible.
I don't have developer,...
Hi Guys, I have two questions if anyone can point me in the right direction. :)
1/. How would I go about creating boxes around options kind of like the one's in this screenshot ("Lighting...
I actually need to load .dds files into a project I'm doing in MMF2 (I know how to convert them externally).
You mean something like this?
((X( "Active" )/100)*100)
Because if so I tried that and MMF2 crashed!
Here's the mfa, you might have better luck.
Ok guys, I'm trying to get my head around this but I'm confusing myself. :crazy:
I'll try to explain what's happening and may be someone can stop me being confused(.com). ;) I'm using the Drag...
Is it possible (or is there an extension) that will allow me to load in a '.dds' image file, like you can load common images (jpg, png...), into an active?

Hi guys. :)
My maths is non existent so I'm hoping one of you boffins might be able to help.

Will this just be for the developer edition of MMF2?
It's ok, I've figured it out. :)
I just used 'Execute an external program' and navigated to the pdf reader, then I simply put the name of the pdf to view where it said 'Command line' (in case...

YES! That worked, thank you so much stephen, :D
Thanks, that kinda worked but how do I add a newline to the file? I've tried adding "/n" and "chr$(10)" and "chr$(13)", also "Val( chr$(10))"+"val(chr$(13))" but it just keeps putting it as text. :)
I've been asked to create a sort of CV Builder for the company I work for. Basically it will be around 12 pages, each with 1 or more edit boxes. For example the first page will ask them...
Is anyone else having trouble with this extension? I'd really like to get this going.
I have, 3 times now. Surely FusionUpdater would have installed them correctly.
From the EasyXML folder:

Is that correct?
Thought it was but I'm getting an error when trying to run the example:

Failed to open document
When I 'create new object', the extension isn't in...
I take it you put the Runtime extension in the "Data > Runtime" folder but where do you put the Release version?
Is the following possible? If so, could some one give me a leg up on how I'd do it?
I'd like to have an embedded table / spreadsheet in a webpage that can be updated with a simple text file.

This is a great idea! As a beginner to DBP, I'll certainly find this useful. :)
That explains it much better, thanks byo. :)

Thanks Werbad. The Full Screen option doesn't appear in the menu when I added it back, in fact I tried a brand new project and it doesn't even appear in that menu!? Could someone try that just in...
I've created a menu item (on the normal menu) to switch between Full Screen and Windowed Mode using a checkbox but I can't seem to get it to work! Here's what I have:
Menu option "Full Screen"...
Hmm, that does seem a bit easier, thanks to both of you.
Thank you Nick! That helped a lot. :)
How? (I haven't messed with file / string parsing) Would I just add a | to the end of each line?
Last time I received a newsletter was December 2007!

COUNTER! That's the one, thank you!!! Now it's displaying 840789. Believe it or not, I actually tried the score counter, forgot about the plain ol' COUNTER. Thanks Jeff, now I have to translate this...
Could one of you guys whip up a simple example for me to look at? I'm sure it's something stupid I'm missing out. :)
I tried it with srt$(), with val() and without either! If I have it without, I don't get an error but the string just says 'text'.
Ahh, thanks Jamie, now I see it's asking for a paragraph, I assumed it was just displaying text. Do I have to set an alterable string / value somewhere and read that in?
I wonder why it's giving me the error when I 'Check current expression'.
Already tried that :)
Get the error "Please enter a numeric expression".
Don't know if this is the same in the older versions but the info of a selected value in the properties window of an object sometimes overruns the info box. Here's what I mean:
I'm trying to create my own controls for a directx object that will show a video, specifically a trackbar so the user can slide it along and the video will fast forward or reverse along with it.
I want something similar, to put a border over a video. Any help would be appreciated.
That's a bugger...
I've fired of an email to the creator stating the problem and will put the solution here, if there is one. Thanks for all your help NK.
I tried that early on but it aligned the end of the text to the left-hand side, so you got something like this:

Ok, I've now been given 2 weeks to make a better player so I'm using the ActiveX object 'Windows Media Play', but how do you load and play a video? I've tried the following:
Thanks for the replies guys. It was a video file I needed to play. I've made a video demo reel of stuff I've done (which is being sent to a games company) and I needed someway to be able to move...
At the moment I'm using Direct Show to play a Windows Media Video file, this is fine and works ok but I want to be able to manipulate the video, a bit like windows media player. What object is there...
This is something I would want too. I'd like to create panels of buttons, text boxes, etc that the player can switch between and being able to hide / unhide everything on a layer would be ideal.
Wow, this is pretty good!
A Merry Christmas to all ClickTeam and all Forum dwellers!

Is it possible to resize an object in grid size steps as well as having the object snap to the grid when moving? Say the grid is 32 x 32 and I have a quick backdrop object, I'd like to resize it to...
That sounds great vortex, but I wouldn't have the faintest clue how to parse it! I'm struggling with ini files as it is (and I've heard they're simple :) )
*sigh*, now it seems you can't have paragraphs in an ini file. It displays the first paragraph only. It seems like one step forward, two steps back.
Is it possible to load a value from an ini file into a 'Formatted Text' box? i can load it into the RTF box ok, but I want a transparent background so I'm trying to use a Formatted Text box but no...
YAY! Thanks Guys, I've now got the location in the rtf box. :D :grin:
@DavidN: location86.ini is in the same folder as the MFA and the contents are exactly what you put in your post!
@Jam: I've removed the current group and item and used Apppath$ +...
Thanks, that helped a lot, but I can't seem to get the first part [Location] into the RTF box, shouldn't this do it?.
I'm having a little trouble reading the various parts of the ini file as I'm not really sure how to go about it. I've tried:
which is supposed to...
Thank you! I now have an animated cursor!
SEELE, thanks for the example (I'll keep looking it over) but try as I might, I just can't get my head around it. It's a bit complicated for me for now (I'm only a beginner! :))
I do have an idea...
This is coming along slowly but surely :) M.A.C.K - exe
Ahh, thank you.
A couple of questions...
1/. How do I have an custom animated cursor.
2/. How can I change it when the left mouse button's pressed? (it's a pointing hand which i'd like to...
Is it possible to have an active go over a list (box) object instead of behind? I'm using an active as a custom cursor and I'd like to select things from a list box but it goes behind.
Yay! I'm 25 again! :)
Who? me or SEELE?
Thanks! This is a great example... and wayyyy over my head! I'll keep chipping away at it though to see if I can understand any of it but thanks anyway. :)
Is this example still in the offering? :)
Wow, thanks! :)
:) It will all be user definable.
Thanks Popcorn, forgot all about that! But I'm now not sure an ini file would be the best choice. I'd like the location text to be able to use text effects like different font, bold, italic,...
*Check out the M.u.C.e.S site I made a while ago - M.u.C.e.S*
Sounds like a great idea Spike, unfortunately, my drawing / animation skills are zero (I can't draw a box without it having 5 sides!) This is why the text version is my only option.
DavidN: Although I've had MMF2 for a while, I've never really used it so INI files are all new to me! I'll definitely read up on that and hope you'd be able to help in the future? Also, you can have...
Thanks guys! Fighting Fantasy was way cool! I'm getting all the re-issues as most of my old ones fell apart! House of Hell was my favourite and I've been trying to make a computerised version for 10...
Hi Guys. :)
I need a little help as I'm not sure the best way to go about this. I'm creating a 'Choose Your Own' adventure type game, the one's like Fighting Fantasy, you know the ones:
Weird, I have the XP, SP2 also. I wonder if it crashes for anyone else?
Ok, I've tried this and it doesn't crash for me. I do exactly what it says, I run the application...:
1. choose a file
2. restart application (F2)
3. wait for tool tip text over a file in...
I need each tab to be a separate page. I want to build graphic elements into an image for each 'page'. In other words each page will be a screen shot. I don't have Dev edition :( Is there any other...
Is it possible to use tabs in an MMF2 application, like this, if so , how?:
They're on what!!!
So you're saying Behaviours are attached to the object, otherwise they're attached to the frame?
Edit: You've corrected the url :)
Thank Popcorn, I needed something like this so I know how to do my menu system.
I won mine http://www.killersklan.it/forum/smile/berlusca.gif
What is MICK(CICK2 if I may ask?
Wow, that's pretty neat.
So this should be placed under the bullet object and not a new event?
How do I say "If a bullet has left the visible viewport area, destroy it"!
I have this as a bullet event:
Y("bullet")< Y Top Frame - Destroy
Which sort of works, the problem is that there...
It would be better if you could have a folder within folder, or can you already do that Joshtek?
Just checking, thanks guys :)
If I duplicate it (therefore only having 1 object) and remove a hit from one of the objects, wouldn't it remove 1 from all the other duplicate objects?
Let's say i have an active, which takes 6 hits to be destroyed and I want 20 of these throughout my game. Would I have to create (clone) this active so there are 20? Or is it possible to have some...
Is it possible to select the transparency colour in an Active Picture Object from the picture itself? Like picking with an eyedropper?
I know you can change it in the options but I don't know the...
You ain't kidding! :D
Is it not possible to check the player's position during playback and say something like:
If player is within num distance and playback01 is greater than num distance...
How about having 2 doors at each location? A 'real' door and a ghost door. The player can open the real door and walk through the ghost one if it's closed.
Thank you Joshtek :)
Right, I think I'm nearly there. Is there an expression that returns the width / height of an active?
Where is the "Fueled by Fusion" logo?
I'm creating a vertical-shoot-em-up and I have the viewport scrolling over a large level, but I'm having problems keeping the player from disappearing of the bottom of the "screen". I've tried a...
The 'Easy Grid Object' website (http://www.tigerworks.co.uk/) is shut down.
This seems like an excellent example, if only I could get my head around it. :grin:
You wouldn't consider making some sort of video tutorial about it would you?
Isn't there a 'sticky' extension where you could place objects next to another and when moving one object the other automatically moves with it?

I want to play a sample randomly between every 20 - 30 seconds, how ? I've tried the timer object and the TimerX object.
Try creating a blank 1x1 image and load that.
I just discovered that :grin:
I have just two nodes, the first one is set at the correct speed (10) while the other always returns to 50, but the movement speed is correct in game. Thanks Jeff :)
I've created a path movement for an active and selected 10 for the speed in the 'Path Movement Setup' dialogue that pops up in the storyboard. When I go to edit the path again, the speed has reset to...
Some of them, others I 'scavenged' of the net :)
Thanks guys :)
@ DavidN: So I could set something up on a shortcut key to say 'paste the selected active here'?
@ Brandon: I don't want to paint with the mouse 'in game', it's while I'm...
Let me explain.
Let's say I was making a top-down, vertical scrolly space shoot-em-up and I made the level, say, 20 screens tall and was filled with tiles, like this:
I never did get round to doing that bit :whistle: :grin:
If I could nail the jet pack movement, the rest should slot into place and you're name will be top of the credits :)
Thanks for your help Paul, it's really appreciated :)
There seems to be some confusion over what exactly I'm after, not sure if you've downloaded the actual game in progress (zip file)...
Just tried the one above and I'm also getting the failed doc error :(
Thank's Paul. I don't want him bouncing when he lands on a platform, see post 40742 above for what I'd like him to do. If anyone can help :)
That's the one I get Brandon.
@Brandon: So there's no way to select, say a collision box? What happens is an object has many appendages but you only want to collide with the main body?
Can someone please help me out! I'm trying to have it so that when the player is on the ground, the animation is of him with his legs down, and when he's hovering, he's legs will be tucked under him...
Paul, the link is to a platform game.
Thanks guys :)
@Nick: I know, i'm trying to find a way to have some sort of collision area around the player that doesn't include the flame, is there a way to do that?
I think I have it, here's the mfa for those who want a look: JetPac.mfa
I get you, but how do I let the player take off again?
I'm trying to duplicate a JetPac game I was writing in another game creation package and I'm wondering the best way to create a jet pack movement. I'm trying the Spaceship Movement at the moment...
Thanks :) I've had a go and it can be done but it's slightly limited for creating toolbar buttons.
Is there an extension that will allow me to create a toolbar? Something like this:
or would I have to create it myself?
Thanks for those :)
I did search for flash, but it returned posts about how to turn a MMF file into flash.
Is it possible to play a flash video in MMF2? Like a tutorial video for example?
Yup, the example file crashes for me to on frame 2.
Yeah? But I bet it can't put a fruit pastel in it's mouth without chewing it! :grin:
Sounds wicked though.
Check out the tutorials page here: http://www.clickteam.info/km/ , there's a flash tutorial on all sorts, including platforms
I get this on some of the example games I play.
Also, pressing CTRL+F5 will reload the page you're on straight from the internet and not the cached version on your drive (as just pressing F5 to 'refresh' will load the cached version for faster...
Check this topic: http://www.clickteam.com/epicenter/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=39560#top
Vitalize 4 is in production, this will support MMF2, you just have to be patient like the rest of us :)
Is it possible to change this in runtime? perhaps giving the player the choice?
Is there an external file that should be loading but isn't in the right place? Sounds like it's trying to load a file but can't find it. Are you sure you've spelt the filename correctly?
Also check out the clickwiki (see "Community Links" to the left) as I'm adding questions and answers all the time!
when clicking on 3, is it supposed to become a blue square?
So no-go for just plain old MMF2 then?
When I try to run your example Jeff, it tells me that the 'Kernel Object (fcKernel.mfx)' is not installed. Where would I find this extension?
I bought MMF2 and it was a combination of about 20 numbers and letter. I bought mine directly from Clickteam and it came with an 80 page instruction booklet and two disks.
Oh and I also recommend...
Here's a few places it could be:
1/. On the back of the box (mine was)
2/. On the inside cover of the back page of the instructions.
Ok, I was changing the 'fill' colour to fill, but for some reason I needed to change the 'outline' colour (then change tool to fill). So I can now draw in different colours and 'fill' (outline?) in...
I'm trying the Draw object now but can't seem to change the colour of the brush or fill (from inside the event editor)! I'd attach the mfa but I don't know how!
Is it possible to reverse the high score table so the lowest high score comes first?
I've looked at the High Score extension but couldn't find anything to reverse the scores. Perhaps this could be...

Take a look on the tutorials page under "Video Tutorials By Mr Man". There's a video tutorial called 'Application Development' which shows you how to automatically resize your objects as the app...
Thank you, this was something I was wondering also. I've added it to the Questions section I'm compiling in ClickWiki. :)
Exactly how do you use the EasyGrid object? There seems to be no help file with it and I can't find anyway for the active to 'snap' to the grid.
Thanks. Just looked at your 'resizing applications' tutorial and must say that's it's helped a hell of a lot for an up and coming project, well done!...
Is this to draw lines using events? If so I was looking for something like this.
That worked great. I just made two conditions as "if mouse is over an object" and negated one of them. Thanks :)
Me again I'm afraid :grin:
I have an active object and a string object (which starts of invisible). When the mouse pointer is over the active, the string is made visible, that part I can do, but...
The Text Blitter extension does seem to do the job you want nicely, but I can't seem to get the bloody dimensions correct for the image file so the letters show up correctly. :cry:
My bad David, I assumed it would start from where the app was and go from there. Something else I've learnt, thank you :)
I'm just guessing, but try taking the full stop from the beginning of the filename:
"/sounds/o" + Str$(random(3) + 1)"
Basically, I think it means "check for this or that", something like:
If lives = 5 or score > highscore then....
so if either of them are true then...
How do you add to the wiki?
Can I ask how much of it is for the developer version? Which of the projects?
That's what I have done OOJ ;)
Thank you so kindly :)
Is there any way to have an active (bouncing around screen) to go behind a string object (instructions on screen)?
