File object to include the option to change the 'Working Directory'.
Thought i'd try the File-Folder object but i get the same problem :(
Any luck? no rush just had a second to ask :)
Ah ok, ordinarily i would've been free to join but couldn't sorry,
If you want to pm me some things I'd love to give them a try, do you think I can pass a command to the exe maybe? Anyway I'll...
Sorry I can't right now :(
Thanks Danny you might just save my bacon!
That's exactly it thanks DavidN but unfortunately I can't set the working directory unless it's something I can pass to the exe as a command which I guess probably breaks some security thing in...
I think my problem relates to the system object execute an external application but slightly indirectly i think.
I am running an exe on an event that all triggers fine however the...
Well the file object does, this can be archived or whatever, thanks.
Also as a little question is there a way to get the build version property of an .exe in fusion? I can't remember if the file object can read it.
I'm making an application that i need to talk to a website which will get the details from a database.
From what i've learned this is best to do via php to display the data through sql.
Thanks for the above, I found a solution..not perfect but if I added a file as an attachment using google sites it works as a download no problem
Thanks Schrodinger, yea i had a feeling this was the case, i've tried several links from google as i can specify if its a document or just a download and then if it is a document what to export it as...
Great! Thanks! Hope we can get the file object for Mac runtime soon!
I have a small problem.
im trying to use the Download object to retreive -...
Gustav & Perry, many thanks to you both \o/
 though i can't find any links for 283.8 :S
Thanks!, is there a place where i can find all releases since a version? specifically in my case i want to review all changes since 283.8 that im on but see the notes go back to 284.0. (not sure if...
Fusion 3.0 will probably have a native Linux version, this is the case for OSX so its quite likely.
you will probably need to store the information in global values and strings so the data transfers between frames, the array object has the option for global data use and as long as the object is in...
is there any chance i could give this a try please? the mfa seems to be 0 bytes.
i would have thought the 2nd one would be faster overall as its cutting down 50% of the computers effort from the event..
both conditions are being checked for every cpu cycle but there is...
Congrats for getting picked up by Chucklefish i like a lot of the games they make/publish and glad to see your game getting the attention it deserves, all the best Alonso :D
You'll have to get it from your order email, i'm certain.
Could you use the space as a delimiter? that would then split up things into words?
 sorry, i missunderstood
You should put this on the bug tracker :)
I would like to say performance of my .exe's have improved quite noticeably.
Happy new year Koji! :D
I don't think you can just part of a string to a different colour, i'd say its worthy of a suggestion in the bug tracker though as i've tried to do this several times and had to go the route of using...
Looks really nice Outcast, i like the graphics a lot, congrats :D
It's 50% off at the moment on steam too :o
i don't think you can directly but indirectly you can have an event that is 'group "x" is activated?' then you could set an action, i'm pretty sure you can negate it too but thats probably not very...
I haven't done it but i would imagine you would have to edit the registry as i think that is where the links to what file's are associated with what and icon's etc.
Just a thought Jeff and its probably a thought for Simon but it might be worthwhile changing the "Registration or Serial Number*" text on the upgrade discount request page to "Request Details...
i think it might be fairly easy to make an app to do this hmmm....
Yea something like that a backdrop is an object type which is a custom image, there is also quick backdrop object too which is can have a custom image or a shape (i think) and can be repeatable, so...
ah ok, i loaded up the mfa, i'm still at a bit of a loss, i think you need to insert a quick backdrop and edit it and then draw the lines. by double clicking on the object to load up the picture...
ah ok, i'll have to checkout your .mfa in a bit :)
it depends where you're trying to start really, if you want to draw a grid there are a few ways to do it, you could insert a quick backdrop...
Hi pka, i think we need more info to help you out..personally i'm not sure if you're looking to draw an image or display something as a background.
The two can be done but I'm not too sure that it...
you need to view the Application properties not the frame properties.
In that example only the stopped animation has 2 frames for the object facing the right direction (direction 0, angle 270)
Maybe this will help -...
ah those default animations are empty for you to fill with what you would like to be displayed when the runtime meets certain criteria, ie creating the object or making it jump or destroying it etc....
You're welcome :)
Yea you're correct, its a list of default animations available to edit, next is the direction and next to that is the frames, when the animation plays it cycles through the...
Google gave me http://www.clickteam.com/creation_materials/tutorials/download/Animations.pdf
Its for fusion but the animation/sprite editor is pretty much the same as far as how to use it goes :)
MMF basically plays those animations, MMF ties those animations in to the movement type.
for example (although this doesn't tie in to movement)
if you create an animation against the appearing...
Hi and welcome
That small screen sounds like its the intro splash screen when MMF loads in extensions and what not.
Did you try opening it with Administrative rights?
Fusion should update automatically over the internet but i'm guessing the .28 on the bug tracker is just so Clickteam can have reports filed against the update, probably just an admin thing.
I did the same but i'm guessing one of 2 outcomes, our licenses is in the database but there is no icon to show for it or its not recognised so isn't in the database ;) either way nothing to worry...
They're working on adding 2.5 i believe :)
It's at the bottom of the forums however currently it has dissapeared. You need to have the software registered on your account (fyi for others)
Bah Jeff you're so quick ;)
 it has shown...
That all looks really good, sucks for me having no money, wish you luck finding something, there should more games with these graphics in.
Yea it looks really nice, programmer art ftw
Welcome and good luck :)
Awesome stuff thanks for releasing it, i'll give it a propper play through when i have some time.
Oh and i love the art style and the animation, very nice.
Hi CoffeeCup, i'm sure you're aware but you could run it through bootcamp until the Mac editor gets released, thats what i do at the moment.
I'll try to answer your questions although i'm not the...
Cool, I tried my key and it said it was invalid but I figured sending valve a list of keys that could be activated would be easier for you guys than issuing lots of new keys :)
Just had a thought, for those of us who bought CF2.5 through the store, instead of Clickteam issuing steam keys maybe we can use our clickteam license key on steam to unlock it, as explained...
hehe i knew of the bugtracker too so my bad :), all logged, please feel free to delete this thread if possible.
Apologies, i'll do that now, have a nice Saturday
So i've just done some testing..
this is the error i get from the windows crash
Problem Event Name: BEX
Application Name: edrt.exe
Application Version: 3.0.280.27
Thanks hgf, maybe I'll try and remake the frame in a new app and see if I get the same problem
Ah ok that sucks :(
I haven't tried this with CF2.5 as i didn't buy it through steam but once it is installed and viewable in your steam library you should be able to view the cd key by right clicking on the application...
I have a few problems i hope someone can help me with.
1. When i enable directx9 and i have a frame set up to keep the background from the previous frame, when i run the application it...
Must've gone down just after i got my order in, i didn't break it i swear...
I'm liking it a lot so far
Upgraded, congrats to me :D *applauds*
Thanks to Jeff and Clickteam for the discount too
Thanks Jeff, no problem, we've survived without them.
Glad you're busy, by the way, i submitted an upgrade request, i did one on sunday too to get a price to dev but didn't hear anything back yet,...
Thanks Jeff :) , has there been any news on how to get a steam key? i'd like to upgrade to CF2.5 with a redeemable steam key ;)
So just to recap, am i correct in thinking it's this:
-New users available to buy CF2.5 through steam today.
-Existing users of MMF2 wait until Clickteam store is updated with CF2.5 to upgrade....
awesome stuff path, really really clever, am looking forward to seeing more, please keep giving us more :D
Sorry to hear that Jeff, can't have been easy to have made that decision, looking forward to Thursday :)
I can't help sorry but I like the art style
I had an idea but it involves using scaling :/
This is awesome congrats Jahkri, i only have one concern in that due to this existing here people might be able to reverse engineer it? maybe this thread could be moved into an owners forum?
It looks like we might have this type of shader built in judging by one of the screenshots on Steam :)
I see nothing wrong with that Snail :D lol
-Sword collides with enemy
+Subtract abs(Sword Damage - Enemy Defense) from Enemy HP
you could then do:
something like that?
How do you have defence=1 stored? is it an alterable value?
it runs on windows ;D hehe, it will most likely have the same limitations as the current one which is probably that you cant build your project into a .exe etc
ah i didn't get back to you in time but you found my (probably poorly worded) question :D, thanks Jeff i'll be submitting a request to the sales people for a quote :) thanks again
Cheers, doesn't answer my question though :(
Thanks for explaining, i thought that was probably the case :) i remember in the dfa videos seeing a book called Shader X9 that looked pretty hefty and the 9th verion or release, i guess they can be...
Please forgive my ignorance, do the shaders work cross platform?
ah ok, my bad :) i guess other than using a shader another option would be to swap out the sprite with another sprite with how you want it, which i guess is not the most efficient method :(
i have an idea, sorry if im teaching you to suck eggs.
when you try to change it for the second time did you try getting the rgb of the new colour, i mean like maybe mmf is confusing the new...
Was there any news about going from MMF2.0 standard to MMF (Fusion) 2.5 Developer pricing?
Ah yea Rainbow Pig :D hehe have you any more you can share? i for one would love an update :D
2.5 on December 3rd :D
Most likely with MMF3 (CF3)
If thats what happens then im a happy dude
You're welcome :) being a mac user myself i would welcome it with open arms especially an OSX version of MMF/Fusion :D.
Nope but in the future :), MMF3 is widely thought to have an exporter for OSX :) hopefully beforehand but we will see.
I have a project that seems to be going quite well so far, was hoping to do a blog entry about it at some point but I’d have to install some video capture for a video or something , at the moment all...
looks smart, hope to hear more soon.
Is there a way of formatting text in the expression editor.
what i mean is in the string object could i have half of the text underlined and half not in the one string? similar to using...
congrats :) i don't like using global values for things unless it relates to application wide values but whatever works for you :).
another way would be to set the counter to being global, using...
i think you would want to make the counter a global object but i don't think counters support being global. (can't remember)
an alternative would be to use another object such as an array or a...
Ah, makes perfect sense.
not sure if this is a bug or if someone can explain to me why this happens..(running build 257.12)
i have a blank application with 2 active objects in, (the default green diamond shape)...
Qubicle for some painty stuff oh and Pixen
some other tools that i make within mmf to edit the files my game loads which is mostly an array editor.
no idea sorry matey, sounds like a bug to me, probably worthwhile reporting it in the Owners lounge :)
 sorry this is probably the best place for this, am sure someone will have a look.
it may be due to the ordering of the actions, are they set up in the same order?
you can see the ordering easier the in alternative event editor screen, (the icon to the right of the event editor)...
You're welcome, you can add it to your profile here too, the first page that loads once you click settings in the top right :), have fun.
Exposed?, its in your order confirmation email :)
Agree with you both ac3raven & colej_uk, Microsoft is making me eat some of my words within the last 24 hours at least anyway, supposedly removing the fees for patching your games, Unity can build...
i don't have any first hand experience with dealing with Microsoft as a developer but with Microsofts trends over the Xbox360 why anyone would want to commit to that platform or Xbox One going...
I can't edit my post :( sorry posting again but i really thought this was worth sharing http://www.gamasutra.com/view/news/194311/Video_Shipping_Retro_City_Rampage_on_17_SKUs_at_once.php
Also what with the (to some) questionable intentions of Apple with the OSX app store there are lots of Indie developed games there.
Also to those who fancy some Indie talk,...
Minecraft - https://minecraft.net/stats (10k+ in last day of posting)
Humble Bundle are still selling well too :)
ah ok :) me and my big mouth heh, happy to help, good luck with the coding.
ah ok yep i didn't see that, is your joystick2 object called "Joystick 2 object" seems unlikely that it would append it with the object suffix, trying to think of problems..hmm
did you try...
Ah, you want to put the "1" without the quotation marks so the expression editor sees the 1 as a value and not a string :)
i think the '1' is the joystick ID fyi
Hi Storsorgen, the last parameter should be a value only so '1' etc, it may still give an expression error though so you may want to also try wrapping it inside a conversion to a string like...
it does under the Special object ^^, that is the object i was referring to earlier
10049 which then leads to 10050
I'd suggest attaching your MMF serials to your profile to attract some serious help :)
I would suggest Lacewing :), there was a great tutorial around here somewhere, i think in the Articles area, it pointed to some videos on youtube by that member if i remember correctly
Hi BackStaged i'm at work so i can't check at the moment but i think its part of the object that you create fastloops from, i think it is actualy called "restrict actions..." and is on the menu with...
Maybe i've missunderstood but what about the Delay function?
PM sent :) +1 for this :D.
Ah ok, i guess you have your answer now though ;)
Hi there Tompa,
I dont quite understand your question however from the subject of your topic, are you trying to point an object at another?
Im gussing "point" means make an object "face"...
ah ok, thanks guys, thought i missunderstood what even i was saying for a moment ;)
nothing else to contribute, let the discussion continue :P
although..presumably something like x("Active") >...
I may have totally missunderstood this topic, but has anyone thought of using a distance calculation instead of collision?
In a game im working on it detects if the objects distance is less than 1...
