I'm also interested in this. Could some light be shed upon the subject?
Does anyone have the link to this? The link provided is dead.
On both Windows Vista and 7, there is an option to choose the default system color. I want my application to blend in with whatever color theme the user has. Is there a way to get the currently...
Well currently I have my application set so that there's no header, border, or menu. I'm using the Window Drag Widget to give my user a way to move the window.
This way there won't be a problem...
Is there a way that I could make the "grab the desktop" option constantly update the background?
I am trying to simulate the features of a window shape with anti-aliased edges. Since there is not...
I'm having this same problem, all of a sudden. It could be because I'm using VMware and I accidentally changed some settings, but it seems very unlikely that that's the cause.
Listen to Jax, it's the better way. No hard feelings lost_child.
I like this extension! While it needs some touch-ups, like the text translation and loading slices at runtime, it appears to work as advertised.
1) There are no 2D limitations that I am aware of, however pseudo-3D gets complicated and if you are a beginner, I recommend you do a lot of standard 2D before trying pseudo-3D.
2) MMF2 Developer...
Remember that if you want your program to delete the temp folder properly on Windows Vista and Windows 7 machines, you're going to have to set Execution Level to "As administrator"
What exactly is the problem? What file? Stand-alone what? Please be more clear.
Is it possible to make the Window Shape object be made for java?
Maybe someone can make use of Sun Microsystem's AWTUtilities class. I would code it myself, but I haven't the smallest idea on how...
Well, there are several ways to do this. The best way is to make a custom engine. The next best thing to do would be to use a physics extension like Phizix (I recommend Box2D, it's awesome)
Is this a question?
If it is, the rtf information is imported using the "RTF" section of the Rich Edit Object.
The only way to "compile" an exe from within an application is to append files to a blank exe using the binary object.
I've done it before, and it's not excruciatingly difficult, but I would say...
Yes, but it's so pretty.
What about some of the other Windows APIs like multitouch?
I think a ribbon extension would be very cool to have for many MMF2 app developers (such as myself), so I'm gonna go and bump this thread.
OK, here's my example of a simple ebook reader. It reads the RTF, and displays it. It's all built into the Rich Edit object, but it's better to make an example.
This example was made for Kracker...
You would need a way to render simple HTML. I'll work on an example. The only problem is images. It can be done, but it is pretty advanced, and includes putting the binary data of the image(s)...
I'm slightly confused of what you mean...
I've honestly never copied something onto the clipboard that didn't have a designated file and have the alpha information be copied as well.
For instance, if you copy a png that's displayed in a...
Well, what exactly would it compile into? There are several kinds of e-book formats available. If it was an XML-styled file, then it would certainly be possible. If the file was more binary (e.g....
If 3dvista stitcher 3 outputs into a jpg, just load the Jpeg into an active (or a backdrop) and it will show. If you want the warping effect found on many panoramic viewers, you will need to use the...
I do believe that the problem you're having is an issue with the Platform Movement object. I tried implementing a rudimentary custom platform movement engine and there was no shaking.
You should be able to edit all available icon sizes (16x16, 32x32, 48x48) if you use the Icon option in the Application Properties panel.
Take Nifflas's advice, and use 7zip. It's completely free, and supports way more compression formats than WinRAR.
If you can supply us with either an example file of what your doing, or if you can explain how you are attempting this, maybe we can help you more.
You can change the position of the action point and hotspot separately. In the active object editor window, pressing "H" will allow you to edit the hotspot location and pressing "Q" will allow you...
A superbar is the new taskbar on Windows 7. This extension is actually pretty nice because if you make a program that takes a long time to do something, you can monitor the progress even if the...
Well for the "GPS" you can use a combination of the minimap object and invisible collision detectors. Top and side scrolling are actually quite easy. If you want a very static screen scroller, you...
Very cool! Will this extension be disabled if an app made with it is run on an XP or Vista machine?
Is this mySQL database on your computer (accessible by localhost) or is it hosted somewhere else?
If it's hosted somewhere else, you just make a PHP page to access the database and edit the...
Well, as was said before, you can distort and squish images with the Overlay object, but currently the only ways are the following:
- OpenGL Object
- Overlay Object
- Zyx's Klik3D...
If you can't wait that long, you can make a simple program using Scintilla (for awesome syntax highlighting) and the Web Control Object (to display the page to edit). You can then have a "preview"...
There is a Developer-only extension called "List View", which has this sorting feature, but if you're not using a system like that, you can probably use fastloops to sort through whatever items...
huh? can you be a little bit more clear?
When the player presses "s", the shield activates. It only stays there for a limited amount of time. At the end of this time, it disappears and recharges...
You need to use the built-in Player column. You don't actually need the lives object if you're using a counter to show life. If you are using the lives object to show lives, I would make a new...
Ohh, I was thinking of something else. I now (hopefully) know what you're trying to do.
Well, to stop the negative thing (though I don't know if this would badly affect your calculation), you can...
Awesome! I feel glad to have helped this inspiration :P
EDIT: Oh, wait. Looki is right. I was talking about Alpha Channels. Though it would be a pain in the next, it would be cool if Alpha...
Well, I made it so that when the first object and second object collide with each other, record the value of the first object in a global value, create a new instance of the second object, and set...
Yes! That's exactly what I'm looking for. Thanks so much, this problem has been annoying me for awhile.
I can finally continue developing my schedule program.
I know I'm reopening an old post, but I'm still having a remarkable amount of trouble figuring out this problem.
Does anyone have any ideas as to how I can do this?
OK, based on what I think you're talking about, I've made a quick and simple example:
Let me know if this...
This is relating to this thread.
Roll over each active to see the alterable value of it.
Well, if you don't want to be be bothered with that math, you could just go to the Widgets subforum and download the Drag Window Widget:...
That is an ingenious idea, and I think it should definitely be made into a game.
So basically, you want to make a kind-of "evolution" of characters on screen based on if they collide or not. What...
omg I totally didn't know that either, and I too am a long-time click user!
Awhile ago a nice example was posted showing exactly this.
Here's the link: http://www.clickteam.com/epicenter/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=35749#Post35749
I'm terrible at C++. Is anyone with the skills to do this available to develop this extension?
I believe that there is a pipe extension. Check FusionUpdater.
I've never used it myself, but it should help.
I have seen custom window shapes with anti-aliasing and shadows on several occasions (e.g. Galactic Civilizations)
I wonder how difficult it would be to incorporate this into the current window...
I think it would be very useful for many people if the Window Shape Object can support alpha transparency and/or anti-aliasing.
Any thoughts on this?
I'm getting this problem too. It happens when I try to compile a Stand-alone Java Application.
So judging by the amount of people interested in this topic in such a short time, it's not too easy to do this. Though it would be annoying, I'm probably just going to have another app with admin...
Is there a way for me to have my program ask for admin privileges if there are none? I don't want the user to have to click Yes/No every time they start it up, but for specific features,...
OK, here's how the 6-day schedule works:
There are six days called Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta, Psi, and Omega (I don't know why they are named that)
The days fall in order, except one day is...
...server?? I don't think I'm making myself clear.
It's just a simple scheduling program. I want to know how the program can determine a weekend period when it's closed and then re-opened.
I can do that, but I'm having trouble determining if a weekend passed. For instance, if there was only 3 days since the last opening of the software, how can I make the program know whether or not...
I'm developing a special schedule program for my school, which incorporates a six-day schedule (in a 5 day week).
Currently, I use this formula to figure out what day it is on this special...
Oh never mind. I found the transparent pixel feature.
Is there some way I could get rid of the feature on the Window Shape Object that makes the color Black transparent?
Red21a, on this forum we ask nicely. You know, it does use some of our personal time to make examples.
I'm trying to set the alignment on the Active System Box object through the Event Editor.
Is this a missing feature, or am I just blatantly missing something?
Well, you could just use the screenshot object and take a shot of wherever the Draw object is, and that's just as good.
However, the ability to put a drawing on layers would be nice.
I like the Window Life Object, because then you don't have to use Always to change the size of the window.
I actually created a tutorial on resizing windows with this object awhile ago on TDC. ...
Well, unfortunately, you can't compile into an iPhone format unless you're running MMF2 as a native mac application, because mono doesn't compile the software, the iPhone SDK does.
Not that I know of
Well since time = speed/distance, try this:
Could you elaborate on what it is before we download?
(P.S. Not everyone has a RAR extractor. I do, but just a friendly hint: make it a zip)
Well, by using the Kernel Object you've made the whole window and its contents translucent. You could try making your objects a sub-app, but that's all I could think of.
Oh OK thanks
Yeah I realized that right after I posted.
Score 0 for me, 1 for everyone else.
Might as well lock this thread.
I've been wondering for a really long time. What's the difference between OR and OR (Logical)?
I've always used OR because my java/sql side is familiar with the term.
I'm running Windows 7 RC1 Build 7100 and I had no problems other than the fact that the windows taskbar didn't vanish, and went behind the custom taskbar.
I'm sorry, but you're mixing a whole bunch of problems together.
Can you revise your question?
P.S. Welcome to the forums
I'm using the newest build of 249. It should be in the main application Window settings area, where you can set the size of the window, border color, and other window settings. It's under the "full...
Well y'all looked into it much better than I did.
If you want to skew, I would say Jamie's way is the best I've seen.
You could try the Use Screen Ratio checkbox, found in the Application's Window Properties. That centers the image on the screen, and doesn't distort it.
You could try using the Text Blitter object. If you want to distort it (like skewing), I don't know what the solution would be.
EDIT: Sorry, I don't know. The text blitter object can't be...
I don't know if someone already made this, but I made my own version of an array viewer and editor, which makes it much easier to work on my projects without having to use trial and error to see if...
not sure if that's spanish or italian, I don't speak both. It's on the missing file warning window. Just wondering why he called it that.
Oh wow, OK no need for me to make a widget if that exists.
Well, this is possible with just calculations on MMF. I'm attempting to make a simple widget that can get the HSL from RGB, but I'm hitting some roadblocks with the calculation.
Hey Cameron, I'm going to guess you speak spanish.
SWiSHmax makes flash files, and it's not owned by adobe in any way.
What happened to the download? That was an amazing extension!
WOO! 600th post!
How do I do that? I don't see a focus command under the sub-application.
Well I was thinking more along the lines of active objects, where the keyboard would control a character.
I'm developing an application that's supposed to let other multimedia fusion users import .ccn files. The application would then have a sub-application object load the ccn, and display it.
True. I just found out that you need an encryption key and crap for AIM.
Screw it. I'm gonna try XMPP.
While it is indeed possible to do this with MooSock (I've connected to ICQ before... sorta), the process of making a program in MMF2 even remotely similar to Trillian would be quite an achievement. ...
Where can I download the Active Gradient Object? It's not found on fusionUpdater or on the neatwares extension page.
Well the development information seems to not be available at the moment, and it would require that the Mouse Party logo be located on each game.
I don't know if this can be made into an...
Also, I made a widget that does just this!
windows vista basic?[/quote]No he means, what are the specs of your computer? Sometimes hardware is a problem in software.
lol when I read "winkey" the first thing I thought of was the Wicked Witch of the West's castle guards. :P
I would advise to be very careful while making an online game. Be sure to make it secure!
Well, in order for a website to access a picture, it needs to be uploaded. So http://picture.link.jpg would not work...
For PHP, it all depends on how you are posting it. It's different for...
Yes please. We don't want to download a 50mb file
Actually, java isn't supported at all on the iPhone, so no application made by MMF or any other windows software can develop iPhone applications.
This is a bit off-topic, but how are you making the ball move? I wouldn't recommend you use the Bouncing Ball movement for accurate angular bouncing.
But I digress.
About your ball thing. The...
OK for 1:
Double-click your active. Go to the Attack animation. Go to the "Direction Options" tab. Uncheck Loop.
Right click on the set to animation "Stop" event and click New...
Wow I never actually realized that. I wasn't paying attention to the development of Chrome for some reason...
Yeah I saw that. Once again, SEELE, great job with that!
LIJI and Jamie are both working on a basic HTML renderer for MMF2, and will hopefully be out in a few months.
Here's the discussion:...
Wow I never knew that existed. :cool:
I actually would like this feature too, so my program can snap to the edges of the screen and taskbar.
Is it possible that I could make my program's window snap to the edge of the user's screen, regardless of the resolution?
Or someone could use the Chromium engine, there are many different forms of web interpretation engines out there.
The Bullet Widget can do that.
You could also use the Bézier Object (forgot what it's called, but that's the main idea)
- Make sure the assarray.mfx is located in both the Data/Runtime folder and Extensions folder of MMF2.
- You do not need to put the extension with the built exe, it's built-in
It's very difficult to see this without some kind of file, so can you upload what you've done?
For the frame X and Y coordinates you use XMouse and YMouse in the expression editor.
For the current X and Y position of the mouse, you can use the Mouse object.
Is there a way to hide the window from the taskbar (while the window is still visible) without using that Sub-Application trick? It was annoying having to refer back to the Frame 1 with the...
In theory it would work, but it would probably be even better if you can compress it in the process (using ZIP object or something similar), change the extension of the compressed file to .txt, and...
Yeah I've been trying to figure out how to fix that. I guess it can probably be fixed if all of the buttons were on one qualifier, and you set all of the buttons to the up state when a button is...
I think there's an old example from Andos tha had something like this, but I think he used a Dev-only extension also.
Honestly, I have absolutely no idea what you're talking about. First you're talking about an installer, then you're talking about a game.
Please be more clear when asking questions, and, if it's...
I've used the Onu Audio Object and it is very fun to play with.
Well, you could try using the key object. I remember reading somewhere that it could retrieve keystrokes without the window being open. Make sure the Run while minimized and the Run while resizing...
On some computers it won't do that, it's all because the FPS of the game lowered due to the graphical restraints of your computer. Only way to fix that is to either use HWA (which may help) or get a...
Maybe for when it's not in focus, you can make the textbox always focused, and maybe it'll work (don't know haven't tested it)
As for when it's minimized, I don't think that's possible.
I'm using build 249 as well. I don't understand why it's not showing.
As did I
I'm just saying people would be able to edit it even more if a very accurate MUGEN clone was developed directly from within MMF as an engine instead of an extension. If it could be easily edited, it...
Either I'm going crazy or there is a bug with the Sub-Application object. With standard settings applied, I cannot get my application to view the subapp as a Popup window. It works in the...
All right! Glad to help
Yay I got referenced! I don't know why I'm so excited!
Try using a fastloop, and scan through the list every time someone deletes an item.
Also, if you make a mistake on a post, use the Edit tool next time.
Well then, Spryz, a very difficult task is ahead of you. You would need to manually calculate the physics of your character, as well as the smooth movement, which is very difficult in MMF.
Some files have the meta tag that determines the version, but very few files have them.
Theoretically, yes, but pure data from the mp3 would have to be recorded to the application, and then somehow exported as a wav. I wouldn't try it, and it wouldn't be easy. If you need to convert...
Well, "Stand-Alone Mac Application" doesn't work on my mac. It opens for a second and then closes. No window whatsoever. I just made a simple blockbreaker game with in-built movements to test it.
Yes, but having an engine built into an extension like this doesn't bring complete control over it. If you have the time or energy to develop a MUGEN-style engine in MMF, that would be amazing. But...
Once again, MMF's unusual forms of selection triumphs. I think that should work.
Also, please refrain on using the bright colors in your posts, it hurts to read after awhile.
ooo you can use the bullet widget. That has easy-to-use built in side-view gravity.
I don't know the parameter, but lets say you want the parameter to make the application full screen, and the parameter name is fullscreen.
You would say in command line:
Ah, I should have looked at the link. I was too lazy on my previous post.
HAPPY ST. PATTY'S DAY!
OK I must be out of the loop or something, but did Bruto_Memo say Build as Stand-alone Mac Application? Is he using a separate program to do this with jar files or is he doing that from within MMF???
Well, if the volume of your sound doesn't change throughout your game, the simplest way to fix the problem is to edit the sound in a program like Audacity and simply lower the volume.
As for the...
Not that I know of... I think it can be toggled using an EXE parameter, but I can't find what it was. If the only option is a parameter such as that, you will need to restart the application when...
I think you mean String Parser.
You can't send an object over Mooclick. However, you can send multiple instances of different information on a single string line and then the program on the other...
Well, judging from what you've told us, this is what I've deduced:
Your sleep animation isn't looping. Make sure it's set on loop. If it is already set like that, upload your file.
Um, pictures displayed on a web page is HTML...
Oh yeah! Nice, I didn't realize that worked.
I thought ATan2 only worked on HWA. I guess I've been out of the loop. SATs are annoying...
Woah your post number is 777 Game_Master
For both of these use the Special Object and go to Compare Two General Values.
If this is the first game you're making, I would recommend you don't make it online. I've been using MMF for about 5...
On the syntax, just replace where the default address is with the url address that you uploaded your game to.
Janman, look into the Advanced Direction object or some angle algorithms that can be found around.
For example, you can use the direction between two points using this formula:
Set angle of...
well, since php outputs html, all you really need is a way to interpret the HTML.
An extension that does this would be great, but it would be a great undertaking to make it.
Well it depends. You would need a quicktime codec of some sort, and itunes would have to be installed on the person's computer (DRM). People who have itunes plus or those who ripped their own cds...
Nice! Also, Sphax, PLEEEASSE finish this object. It's so very cool...
Anyone have an Array Fastlooping - Z Position snippet I can use? For some unusual reason, I can't figure it out! Must be my slowly deteriorating brain...
OK, from my perspective, you are having multiple problems simply figuring out how to use the draw object. Try opening up the help dialog (I don't know if there are examples) and learn about all of...
It's always better to develop your own engine rather than just use one someone else made. It allows for better understanding and flexibility of the game. Use the tutorial; it's very helpful.
Yeah, if you don't want to change anything, your EXE file is not going to change in size.
Well, you do indeed use the conditions in the Special Conditions item. To "detect" different types/names of files, you could use the File Object and check to make sure the dropped file (I think...
Does anyone have a link to the beta download?
Well, in the example you uploaded, it requires an INI file. Just give us one that you've already made.
It's not a bug, because a loop does not designate any specific object in the condition.
Yeah, I thought this was a bug until I realized how MMF selects stuff. I actually like it now.
Well, to make it not appear on the taskbar, there's a little trick where you use a sub-application popup window and hide the main application.
To make the window always above other windows, just...
Maybe if we all beg he'll continue working on it. :grin:
Thank you! That's the best thing I've heard all day.
Also, Darkhog, if the user doesn't have internet, why would they need the ActiveX (unless you were going to load an internal HTML, which makes...
What happened to the VectorialShape object? I searched google, this forum, and the FusionUpdater program. I can't seem to find it. It was so cool too...
Nusua, did you do the chocobreak tutorial? I think it shows you how to create objects in there.
I'm confused about what the question is. Do you want the window to not appear on the taskbar?
That wasn't random...
For a tutorial on this topic, I wrote an article a while back:
Hmmm... It shouldn't be. Did you try reinstalling MMF?
Yes, I'd love to see this kind of object. There are so many uses for it.
Did I say that? I meant polygon...
Run while resizing. It's in the runtime options.
Well, you could use the Time X Object. Make it so that if:
YearDay( "Time X" ) mod 7 = 0
Well, if you were extremely skilled at loops and whatnot, you can probably code each pixel into a giant MMF file and make a good counter-strike-like game.
I would have to say no, there is nothing...
Good stuff right there.
Well, for my schedule program, to determine what day in a rotation I did, I would check to see if:
Day of the Year mod Number of Days = 0
If that was true, it was a certain day on a rotation.
That is a glitch in the built-in Platform Movement. Try using the Platform Movement Object instead. It is much more stable and customizable.
We could test it if you supply the INI as well.
Well, either you have the demo version of MMF2, or you have a pirated version.
If you pirated MMF, shame on you.
The problem is that the timer is all dependent on your framerate (I think). Try using a loop to make the items appear.
Um, even on a jailbreak, there is no java. Also, jailbreaking isn't illegal. It just voids warranty, like opening up a computer and messing with its motherboard.
Yes, but the general public has Internet Explorer. I don't bother uninstalling it, because so many games/applications use the activeX (e.g. The Sims).
Oh wow. Security up a bit high?
Anyway, can you unrar?
Um, how would that help anyone? I don't know exactly where the problem is located, so breaking up the code may mess it up...
If I could remake the error I would gladly make a smaller file, but I...
I recommend you use the standard Windows Browser ActiveX, because everyone who has windows has that ActiveX.
I know I sound desperate, but can anyyone figure out the problem I'm having? I was thinking of using the global function object instead of using a Global Value to send information across the frames....
Can you try to make the horizontal scrollbar only appear when there is a certain amount of characters in the box as well? That would just remove a pet peeve I have...
Well, the three things that you posted above don't require extensions at all...
The Trackbar Object was the one I was looking for. billv, use that. It's very useful.
