Great example! This could be quite useful in nebula-like particle effects. :)

Great example! This could be quite useful in nebula-like particle effects. :)
This should be everything you need. Just copy what's inside the folders with the extension name on it to your MMF2 folder. :)
Thanks AyreGuitar! This will definitely be of great assistance in my projects. :)
Looking over the code today, I came to the sudden realization that I had entirely forgotten to add an event for when the snake collides with itself. XD
Here's that little fix:
Good day everybody! I've just finished making a quick example of both a Tron-style game (in 36 events) and a Snake-style game (in 14 events). There was an AI programmed for the Tron frame, but it's...
I've also created a webpage for it, which can be viewed here: :)
Good morning everyone! My newest game, Abscond, is now available on the app store for iDevices! :)
How long can you dodge what's coming at you? ;)
This is incredible! Excellently done.
Excellent work! These are great effects. :)
Great work! :)
You could use the Local IP++ object to retrieve it, or you could have a Lacewing client extension in the frame to connect to that server and get the host IP address. :)
I've zipped up the Local IP...
My apologies about your troubles... You say "Mac client", is this using the beta of the Mac Exporter?
Make sure that your sending something to the server, or at least looping channels, or something to stay connected. Also, be sure to (if you have multiple frames) select the global option and apply a...
Yes, I did manage to solve the issue! :)
Here's an ZIP with the MFA and the XML file:
If you do not already own the Android exporter, then yes, you need to purchase it separately. :)
I just finished looking at it. This could have various useful applications within games for custom movement.
Excellent work! :)
The Box2D errors are an Apple Mach-O Librarian error and that incredibly annoying clang error (Apple LLVM 5.1 error). Also, just as a note, this clang error also occurs when compiling...
I'm not really sure as to what is going on, but these errors appear whenever I attempt to compile any of my applications...
Box2D isn't even used anywhere in the app, so what's the point of...
Awesome! Thanks. :)
Well, nearly... I am sorry to say that the change did not work. :(
I'm certain that the matter can be resolved, however. :)
I'm not exactly sure what you mean, Perry. I have looked that the file in question, as described by the error log, but I'm not sure as to what exactly I am supposed to add the m_ in front of...
Awesome, thank you so much! :)
I am having a rather unfortunate and urgent issue that is preventing me from building any of my apps. After updating to iOS 7.1 on my iPad, which I now know was a mistake to do...
You would have to insert an active backdrop to be able to animate it. Normal backdrops or quick backdrops cannot be animated, as far as I am aware. :)
This is incredible! Well done thus far. :)
Thank you LB for this extension! :)
Never mind, I believe that I have found a solution that does not involve Twitter. :)
I'd like to integrate a twitter feed from a user into the application. I'm certain that there is a way to do this, most likely using the GET object, but I'm not certain as to how to...
Try as I might, I cannot seem to get my font embed in my .exe application properly. I have included it in the binary data, and at the start of the frame, I extract it using the...
Awesome job! :)
Wow. This is really amazing!
Thanks for releasing such an awesome open source tool! :)
That's fantastic! :)
Ok, wait, I got it to half work.
I'm not sure that it's entirely working because after less than 5 seconds of uptime, it loses the connection.
Well, I haven't gotten it to work yet, but I did add in the following to my XML file:
<allow-access-from domain="*" to-ports="843" />
I'm not sure that did anything unfortunately. It's a...
Yep, I've hosted the flash policy with that XML file.
Again, I am sorry about the lack of minimalism.
Okay, it's not minimalistic, sorry...
I missed that bit.
Here you go:
My question is a simple one: How do I host a Lacewing Flash server?
I'm hosting on port 5822, with it working fine in Windows. Everything is port forwarded and ready to go.
I'm going to be testing a flash application of mine that uses Lacewing today. I shall implement this version.
Thank you. :)
This looks great! :)
I cannot seem to get the extension to load. I believe I have put the files in the proper locations, however the extension does not come up in the list, even after refreshing.
The MFA fails to load...
Thanks LB. :)
I have a question as well: Is the iOS SDK still current? It doesn't seem like it would be, but I'm trying to develop an extension, so the newest SDK would be good. :)
Here you go:
Upvoted! Nice job. :)
I can understand your situation, more than once have I been in-between on a decision of style for making a game. XD
That's a difficult choice... If it were me personally, I was never the best with commanding multiple separate units at once in video games, so an action-RTS would be good.
You've also got the...
That's a really cool looking game! :)
Hello everyone! :)
I just released my newest flash game Wondersphere not but a couple days ago. Wondersphere is a puzzle game where you control a sphere using the arrow keys while trying to...
Hello everyone! :)
I released my newest flash game Wondersphere not but a couple days ago. Wondersphere is a puzzle game where you control a sphere using the arrow keys while trying to collect all...
I am hoping for an update as well... I am also hoping for an iOS port, even a beta build, if at all possible. I feel these are vital to MMF2 and 2.5.
No problem. :)
Don't worry Nivram. :)
The only reason I really use a public server is if I need to test a Lacewing function or idea quickly, without having set up my own server already.
That's what I thought... The second one is the issue.
Glad I could help. :)
I've been having a bit of trouble with Russian, Chinese, etc. characters that I am getting from the Get object and an online source.
The online source works fine, however, when I get the...
You can create a character creator by making individual actives and positioning them relative to one of them. For example, if I create an active labeled "Head", I would create another...
Awesome! Thanks for the release! :)
Cool! Thanks for the update. :)
Wow, that's great! :)
Wow, this is rather interesting! Good luck with it! :)
Congrats on getting it greenlit!
This is really cool! :)
Thanks for the example!
This looks very interesting!
I am curious to use it. :)
Personally, I enjoy using control and alt for this.
That's just my two cents.
Thanks Francois, it's tough being busy. :)
Good luck to you and F2.5!
Yeah, I forgot about that... There's probably a way to get around that, but I don't have time to work on it now.
The Control X object allows you to disable keys, and I've included the files. Hope this helps! :)
What great applications this could have!
Thank you very much. :)
Oh wait, yes I did. Sorry, I haven't been using Lacewing in a while. I was sending multiple null terminated strings, and for some reason it wasn't working quite right, so I did this:
Oh, I had only ever null terminated it, so I didn't know that! :)
Thanks for the tip! :)
No problem! :)
It's based on the size of the string, say the length of your string is 10 characters (including spaces), then it takes up 10 bytes, etc.
Just in case, to find the length of a string, you input...
Wow, you've been busy. This is really awesome! :)
Ah yes, I had forgotten to do that. I'll get right on it. :)
EDIT: It worked! Thank you very much. :)
I can't seem to load the extension. I've made sure it's in the right place, but it can't load...
Voted up! :D
Fue un error mio tambien. (Sorry for not putting accent marks.)
(For those who don't speak Spanish, that says, "My mistake too." ;) )
Can't wait to see the list! :D
That's what I'm trying to figure out, I know it's not working, but I'm confused as to why it's not working. I'm working on making one that functions properly.
I do, but there's a strange bug that I don't remember appearing before... I'll have to fix it before I upload the .mfa.
EDIT: For some weird reason, adding the image to the binary disconnects me...
Oh yeah, I forgot about that...
Unfortunately, it had some issues... I hadn't updated it to the newest version. XD
Thanks conceptgame for reminding me of it! I'll make some quick updates and...
*Nominates for best picture ever.*
Agreed. This is something I've had (and am having) issues with. +1
The first one is really impressive, a psuedo 3D with only a couple objects. Plus it comes with a level editor! (The second turns up a 404 error, for some reason.)
Thanks Nivram for having this on...
Ah, turns out it was the .mp3, I just needed to convert it to .wav. So now I can play it outside MMF2.
But, for some reason, still no sounds play in MMF2. Only when I'm selecting one and hitting...
AyreGuitar, I am just playing the sound, no channels.
My version is currently 257.24 and all other programmes work correctly on my computer.
I hope that helps a little to decipher this issue!...
For some reason, a small application that I'm making for my English class project will not play sounds, even when built.
It's just one sound, a basic Start of Frame, play and loop sample...
You're not alone! It's incredibly handy in reordering and creating with longer events. :)
So, yeah, is there anything new coming with the list editor? +1
Oh yeah! :D
(It may just be the fact that I came up with the name, but it looks 10x cooler now. ;) )
Glad I could help! :)
Well that sounds really cool: Super Resolution Algorithm. :D
It's the first real Voice Detection extension that we have! I wish you the best of luck in finishing it! :)
Augmented reality! YES! :D
This is going to be awesome!
Any chance of gesture detection? If not, perhaps a depth map, or some way of detecting distance?
That's something I'd think would be...
This would be quite interesting! I would be more than willing to create some tutorials and examples! :)
Thanks Conceptgame! :)
I updated to Build 257.28, and for some reason, all of my strings, aren't showing any text when I type into them in the frame editor.
2 of them appear when running the game, but one of...
This could be quite useful in many ways! I wish you luck with your extension! It should be quite interesting indeed. :)
Now, I'm curious, since I've been doing some research on this matter. Would it be plausible that the data received from the Mindwave headset could be translated into sound?
People have done this...
I can answer that. I believe that last time there was a recorded video, so I assume it will be the same this time around.
OK, just a few questions:
1. Will the live stream be for just Sep. 1st or for both Clickjam and the Convention with Francois?
2. What time will these be taking place (Or rather, when will the...
I have been experimenting with ideas to create this sort of thing using Box2D for a little while, but as I am not a frequent user of Box2D, I was wondering if someone may have a better idea as to how...
Sounds awesome! Thanks so much for this extension!
Ah, yes, I saw that one too. Can't wait for the extension, it's bound to be something very interesting. :)
Like this headset by Emotiv? It's really interesting to see a consumer available brain reader!
Increasing the number of loops will create more particles and in turn make it stronger. Or you could, for the rain, just modify Global Value A. You could also change the timing of each, for example,...
Wow, this is really cool! :D
I'm voting for it to be released on Halloween. :)
Seems like a trend for exporters to be released on holidays.
Well, then I'd better get started!
*Prepares plan to ship himself in a box.*
...2 weeks later...
*Arrives at Fanotherpg's doorstep just in time for the convention*
Why couldn't I have stayed in England for another few weeks? (Preferably forever.) XD
I'm hoping to be in virtual attendance, if possible. :)
This is a good explanation of Finite State Machines.
A very true statement indeed! :)
Glad that I could help!
You can do it in Flash and EXE using the PDF extension:
This seems to work fine on my end. There's no freezing in midair or any discernible problem for that matter.
Your code looks good, but I can't find any issue... Also, here is my fix, but with an...
Ok then! May I ask, if it isn't a grenade you're throwing, why is the frame labeled "Grenade Throw Test"? ;)
This may be what your looking for: Just get rid of the second movement all together and then stop it and create an explosion.
I've made a .mfa for you, complete with explosion and all. :)
This is great! Thanks for continuing on such a cool extension!
Which models did you use? I used the HUB4 English model.
Did it recognize some words before closing? Nope...
Did you close it during processing? I closed it during activation, yes. When I...
I believe I also found a bug. When trying one of the more sophisticated models (68,000 words), I got this error when trying to exit the program:
Well, this is really cool! Thanks for making the object! :)
That's fantastic! I can't wait to help make this object reality! I'll be sure to help find bugs and issues.
Thank you very much for making this! :)
I don't mean to sound impatient, but has there been any progress to this yet? I know it's only been a week, but if the code was just being checked over, I would hope that there would at least be a...
I've never used it, but there's the URL Encoder object.
I don't know if it's what you need, but here you go: :)
I can't wait to hear more about this mysterious MMF 2.5! :)
Why does this convention have to be two weeks after I leave England? XD
Nonetheless, this all sounds interesting, and whatever is...
I'm curious too; There are quite a few uses for this object!
You're probably right. I'll try it without the object first, then with the object, to see which works better. Thanks LB! :)
I'm trying to make Lacewing use the video stream as a form of communication. The binary object is making some things tricky, but I hope that I can do it.
Fantastic job! Thanks for all your work!
I so wish I could come! But I leave England 2 weeks prior to the event... :(
Oh well... Maybe next time...
This would be really awesome!!! :)
Couldn't you also use the CMD commands to do it?
At the command prompt, create a directory for your source file and make it the current working directory. For example, type md c:\simple and press...
That sounds really cool! :D
Face tracking and gestures and 3D cameras! :)
Like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=dUBxHd3bMhg
Do you think it's possible to add support for Augmented Reality? I've never seen an extension do that before, and I thought it would be neat to have in such a great camera extension! :)
Try the GET object instead! :D
Awesome! I'm glad that you built on your video capture extension! :)
Yay! New version! :D
Edit: It says that it's invalid...
Perhaps, if you wanted to send a streaming file to multiple people at once over Lacewing, that feature could be useful. The current screen capture is a bit slow...
This could be used for screen...
Try this extension instead:
Hmmm... I found some LUA work done with these dynamics. I wouldn't know what to do with these .lua files to make it into a .mfx, if it's possible!
But, if someone would like them, they can be seen...
OK! All good to go! Thanks so much for all your help!!!
I did not upload my binary then cancel... I will try that.
Also, I've checked, even though the game says Score Sent! there are no scores being posted. (It's been a couple days so...)
Yep, it's being authenticated. I see the whole box thing with Welcome Back blahblahblah...
OK, Mochiban, that's how I'm getting that quick Score Sent, then Something went wrong... That's the thing, I have no clue what that "something" is! There isn't an error string to tell me...
Is that more efficient?
¿Eso es más eficiente?
(I noticed that you were in Brazil! I speak Spanish. :) )
OK, here's the only thing I don't get:
Whenever I send a score, it retrieves the score to send from the INI and then sends it to the leaderboard. Then it says Score Sent! and then Something went...
OK, cool, thanks! I'll be sure to do that! :)
I sorta kinda half know what I'm doing... I have my entire leaderboard set up in iTunesConnect, but I am unsure of how to proceed in MMF2. I have the authentication thing down, and I have put in the...
I'm running a virtual mac, and so far, I have had no luck making Lion run on a AMD kernel... So Snow Leopard it is.
Awesome! This could make some really cool software! :D
Except for one thing: When building for any application in iOS Device 4 (Xcode 3.2.5 (I think)), there is an issue with the modal.m, undeclared uses and such. Now, there's an easy way to fix it: Get...
That sounds awesome if you could do that Looki! Resizing is quite useful...
Wait, what 3D objects? I heard Stephen say something about 3D a while back (Last year) but I didn't know if that was continued or not.
Yes! Thank you! I've been looking to see if this was possible! +1
(I can only support at the moment, but I am working with multiple extensions to see if it's possible!)
Except for Anaconda, which displays everything, compatible or not.
I don't know if it's possible, or even how to, but I totally +1 this. It could be exceedingly useful for some games. :D
I totally vote for the super-smiley! :D
But that's just me. ;)
Yeah, that's what I thought. So will it ever get out to the public? Or is it dead?
OK then. I had always contemplated getting that issue... Maybe it is a good idea. :)
A long time ago, a long time being around a year or so, I saw this Fishhead 3D thing and I thought:
Cool! I wonder when it will be done!
That was a...
By any chance, do you think it'll be done in May or released near that time?
(I have my reasons)
I personally am crossing my fingers! Can't wait! :)
Amazing Quinto! Thanks so much!
Interesting! Really cool ideas! I will put these to the best of use! Thanks so much! :)
Really awesome! Hey, I was curious, instead of positioning is there a way to have a group move at once? So instead of individual X and Y positioning, could there be a cleaner way of doing it?
Thank you! This will do nicely. :)
I will put it to good use.
Thank you, but unfortunately that doesn't solve my problem...
It would need to be drag and drop for it to work.
I am working on an inventory, but I would like that inventory to be able to move! So, easy solution, right? Make the inventory drag and drop!
But, I need all the objects within the...
OK, I am using Tab Control for tabs, as one might expect, but there is one issue that must be addressed:
I can't seems to order the tab control to the back... That's kind of a necessity if I want...
OK, here's an iOS example: (Note: You will have to sign up for FREE here http://www.geonames.org/login, and then input your username in place of demo)
*Also, it's too big to put on here, so...
Eh... Oops, minor mistake on my part... Sorry!
(Also, does anyone know how to delete a specific line from an edit box using the string parser?)
OK, fixed it, turns out it was an order issue... Oops.
But there is still one question:
Is there any way to delete an entire line of an edit box?
OK, everything is almost working!!!
But there's still one issue... It's not replacing substrings... I have no clue why though!
It did it before, but now it won't... I just set Edit Box text to...
OK, figured out substring removal and replacing, but how can you remove entire lines from an edit box? Is it possible?
There is some unneeded data in a few lines, but the data is constantly...
OK, I know a way to do it, but I need to know:
Is there any way to remove certain text in iOS?
There are constants in that long line of information, but if they could be replaced by "" or...
Fair enough. I have now converted! But I still can't figure out multitabbing...
EDIT: Holy crap... This has a heck of a lot of options... Can it do easy multitabbing? I don't know, there's too...
No, I'm afraid not... But that is the right track! That's what I meant, but I need it to do the page that it was on when you switched tabs...
The forums still won't let me upload my .png, but I...
OK, got the Get info, but how do I limit it to just country and place instead of:
OK, I'm adding in their US Lat and Long list in a text file. I'll add it in a list and then match the list to another list of the coordinates.
It should work... I'll post an example when done. :)
I can upload a pic, but only after the image upload bug is fixed.
Here's something I should've planned for:
When using the location object, it retrieves your coordinates, great!
Is there any way to get your location (153 Piggy Lane) using those coordinates? ...
Quick question... Is that the same thing as message.framework, because when adding from existing files, MessageUI.framework, does not exist...
EDIT: Found it! It was hiding with some .dylib files!...
Yeah, I was using boxes, so why does it work with actives and not boxes?
Then again, I'm still confused on selection. Everyone's width is the same, I tried spreading a value to determine...
No problem! :)
Use the ControlX object to simulate key presses.
You can get it in the z33z extension pack, located here:
Hope it helped! :)
I have made a working browser with bookmarks, history, home pages, all the usual, except multitabs...
I started working on them, when I ran into a couple of issues that I am unsure of how to...
Oh, really? I didn't know that! I'll get right to editing!!!
OK, done. No difference... I'm sorry great and powerful LB, but nothing appears to be working... I was certain that that was it,...
OK, did that, on name set, then join. It is still joining, as the green light indicates. However, it still does not receive any files.
I'm looking over the events one more time to see if I missed...
To Sevennemesis: Cool! You could have a person automatically send a number, say 1, from a subchannel or channel to indicate that it's taken, then constantly save and load an ini with that data in it...
I have now. The channel is joined. The name is now set before joining... And yes, it makes no difference. :(
I really don't understand. It sends but not receives, what causes that? I've looked...
Yep. MyIDis+(UserID as a string)
And oh. I didn't realize that using separate channels wouldn't do it. I thought that if you have 255 subchannels and 650 people occupy 1 channel and all the others...
I guess it depends on the power of the server, or you could try sending them on separate channels or subchannels.
That's my advice, but then again, you could also host multiple servers on one...
Oh you're joking! How did I not notice that?
Well, even after that it still won't work... I'm really confused as to why.
I've basically done the same thing, but just waited to activate it a...
