Thank you Danny for clearing it up.

This works but.....
Seems the Directory Packer has a limit of 165 Mb because the unpacked directory never exceeds that although the directory to be moved is >700 Mb. This can of course be solved...
Oh that looks interesting! Will try it.
Still can't figure out how to program it so it copies a whole folder.
This is the path to the data-folder I which to copy: appPath$ +"\data"

Ok, will try that. Thank you.
How do I copy a directory (folder) from the game folder to users appdata to be able to read and write back and forth.

Fantastic work you are doing.
Thank you so much Decal for taking the time and trouble with this.
Using only the ini file makes it much less complicated plus you made it work. I definitely complicate things it too much. :)
Am using the file object to create a folder: "appdata/roaming/MMFapplications/LeggingGen/".
Then creating a file with the file object in that folder and next writing to that file using the ini...
Turned out there is no problem creating the folder but to have Fusion use it and look in it is another matter. Am starting a new thread with example app added.
A strange behaviour I can't solve.
1. I am copying an ini file from the app folder to appData folder when app starts first time. This worked great when I first set it up but when starting up today...
Deleted this message. Wrong place.
Was finally able to create my own directory in appdata *and* have the ini-file created in said folder. Sigh.... it was "the user error" as usual. ;) :)
Thank you marbenx, just what I wanted to hear. :)
Brilliant work! :)
I am working on a small program to get me back in to Fusion before I continue with my old, big project.
As suggested in various threads here I am using the file object and the ini object to store...
Good read in this thread. :)
I have learnt a lot about work process vs how my brain works through the years. Our first game I had an idea how the "feel and flow" of the game should be and then...
Yes, some of the files are ancient. :D A miracle it works at all. All good now though.
Same problem after reinstall and update. But suddenly the error instead changed to telling which file was the trouble. Could that be thanks to the 2.5 dev+? So I have changed from using a...
Thanks aa2953b4, that will be the final solution if everything else fails. :)
Thanks Yves, will reinstall after supper and see what happens. :)
Can't send my whole project unfortunately. And can't rebuild years of work in the Fusion 2.5+.
Does this mean I can't use the 2.5+?
I just bought the 2.5+ and installed it on my 2.5 dev with latest build.
When I run my app (F8) I get the message:

That is very kind of you Yves, appreciate it a lot.
I will go through all the parts first and see if I can figure it out. That will refresh my memory at the same time and "re-learn" how it works....

Thank you Nemeen_lion. Very good to know.
Brilliant. Thank you Yves! You are a hero as always. :)
After a couple of days of frustration I found various threads about not using Android Studio. Starting over using the older Android manager I finally was able to build an .apk file. Simple app with 1...
Brilliant advice! Worked directly. :)
So far in my (never ending) project I've used subapps, loading and unloading various parts of the game to handle performance. But MMF/Fusion/computers are getting better and subapps are (in my...
Yes, it definitely has something to do with subapps.
Was there a fix for this or some work around?
I'm glad to hear someone else is having similar issues as I have when working with MM2 dev files and Fusion 2.5.
I get the missing extension error and crashes with subapps. Have no clue so far what...
After I get this message Fusion stops working and I have to close through task manager.

When using the 'ultimate fullscreen extension' subapps are not displayed in the correct position of 0,0 instead they show at x: 240. At the moment it's going from 1024 x 768 to 1920 x 1080 px.
Have started tests porting parts of our game to Android but the shared object extension is used everywhere between apps and subapps which makes things complicated. Will this extension be available...
Found more info on Clickteam html 5 product site when using IE instead of Chrome. Chrome reverted back when clicking on the help docs link.

I'm also interested in the answer to this.

Subject says it all.
I have a png image which should turn transparent where the brush moves. Background will be visible.
Is this possible and if so how can I do it?
All I can say is: WOW!
Fantastic work programmers and tester teams!
You can send a PM to any of them. Go to your 'Pofile' and send a message.
Guess that explains why I can't get it to work.
Thanks guys. Will try again. :)
Should it be entered for example like so: "someServer.com:6121"?
I am going through these great video tutorials and need the LacewingServer app mentioned in the video.
Where can I find it and that will work with the latest Lacewing?

Ahh thank you Jeff! That is really nice of you. :)
Still am curious what I may be doing wrong not being able to add the serial numbers. Must check if I have the numbers wrong on my backup info.
@Stephen, if I knew I would certainly fix it. :)

Is there a way I can set and delete a drive letter to a folder with MMF (MMF 2 dev)?
I know how to do it from CMD and I know there are free software that does it.
I know one can use overlay object for still images (have tested Vortex's example) and "erase" (making transparent) parts of the image with an Active object being dragged over it.
Now I wonder if...
Ok. Thanks Yves.

Thanks LB. Now I understand a bit more. :)
I found THIS Box2D 2.1.0 manual, will it help some or just mislead me?
Just want to reveal my level of ignorance level about this. :blush:
Been at this for hours now and still don't get it.
I dissected the "joints" of the phizix exmple to try to understand and...
Great! Thank you!
What nivram said. ;)
It's for a tied animal moving around a bit. So one end of the rope will be at the animal and the other at the wall.
I am only checking possibilities here.
Don't know which extension would be able to do what I am after (Phizix ?)but this is what I am after:
A short rope, made up of parts so it will move. It's...
I must be blind.
There used to be links where one could search and find extensions needed. I'm searching for 'linesurface.mfx' at the moment and have no clue where to find it.
Thank you FG for your suggestions. :)
I found the reason. There were 2 spaces after the last '_' before single digit and 1 space before double digits which apparently confused MMF. Was able to...

Oh that's perfect. Thank you! :)
I want to pick a random frame for example 'random(100)' but exclude the first frame. How do I do that?
It would be very useful to have a lock screen command of sort (I'm used to it from another dev app).
It would help get rid of all the blinks and flashes when closing and opening apps and subapps....
Got more strange things happening so I reinstalled MMF. It 's probably due to a windows freeze a while back while MMF was running.
Works fine now. :)
Thanks Yves, I'll check it again before sending it to you, it's big.

Great work. Thanks! :cool:
It seems I often find a solution just after I've posted about it here. Sigh...
At least I got the #2 issue fixed but would still love to find a way to do #1 in my post above.
Anyone use MMF for your order and customer handling? Not with a database, just locally.
I have been at this all day tying to sort it out but I just can't. I have an old app I've made in another...
I did a workaround. :)
Imported the csv file to the Dynamic array object.
Exported directly to an ini file (all 'å, ä, ö' intact).
Then process the data from the ini file.
How do I unscramble the distorted Swedish characters 'å, ä, ö' when a csv (exported in utf-8) is imported to Data grid object?
Any suggestions appreciated.
The frames are 'cloned' to start with maybe that has something to do with it.
I hope the app isn't corrupt because I wouldn't know what backup to pick, how far back. :o
I'm getting a crash and close when doing the following:
One app with multiple frames.

Thank you Looki, just what I needed. :)
Is there a list of extensions that'll work with the HWA? Could really make good use of one now. :)
Went with calling the sub from each sub. More work but this way I can have it small and pretty. :)
Oh and do you also see the buttons on both the subs at runtime? I don't.

I hope my project isn't corrupt and that's why it's acting up because I...
Thanks Burfelt. :)
I have tested that too but I then get any animated or moving AO from the sub behind showing up through the info sub, poke holes one could say. Any click will also be picked...
I made an example from scratch.
One zip file contains the built exe and ccn files.
Second zip contains the mmf files.
Hope I got them all.
When the subs open I don't get any buttons showing...
I'll try to strip it down. Might find the reason while doing it too. :)
First I'll make new buttons and see if that makes any difference for the "button holes" that are showing now.
I'm getting the same result with or without it set to Pop up. Buttons are transparent and it's non responsive. Two buttons are visible for some reason.
With modal the whole thing...
Project runs from a main app.
Parts are opened in subapps "above" the main app.
Everything happening is handled by the main app. Subapp sends info via Shared object to main app and stuff...
Ok, that one was a big oops. Sorry.
Have that ticked on my game parts though.
Then I'm back on square one with fast loops searching arrays not working. I'll see if I can get another example up.
Sorry, can't edit my post above.
Found the problem.
NOT! (See LBs post below)
I'm experiencing a strange issue with a fastloop checking an array. It's in a subapp and shows the result in the main app.
I have problems pinpointing what is happening but it seems the loop does...
Fabulous tutorials! :)
Big thank you for taking the time and energy to create this!
@method72, The one mentioned above is one animation dir in one AO.
@Olivier, You are right the size went down to 8,35Mb when built as exe. Great! I will be using .ccn but that one is small too...
Can someone explain to me why 32 png pics of 8,5 Mb gives a 58 Mb MMF file after import? There is nothing else in the MMF file.
It's ok, I can live with that I just want to understand why it...
Never mind, solved it.
It was not correct to write 0,1,2,3 (4 separate digits), it should only be one digit and one line at a time.
Didn't find any info on this in the help section.
Don't understand why it's happening.

Wow Seele! That is a great example! Love it!
Wish I could get a picture on there. But still, it shows what can be done by you guys. :cool:

Great and very useful extension! Thanks!
Great, thanks for the info. :)
Love the logo! Well done on the whole package.
Any news on this project?
Yes, that should work.
One way could be using a specific channel for that sound so when sound plays on that channel text will show.
I'm sure others will have better suggestions but this is a...

Is there a method of curving or tilting a text to give the illusion of a text in a magazine/book? Not much just slightly. I can't use a picture of text since it gets the text from an INI file.
If a "slot" can hold 256 characters it'll not be enough. It is for storing info about herbs and their historical and medical use (a hobby project). The overall size of the array will...
How much text can I squeeze in to a slot in an array? (With "slot" I mean for example the space at X1/Y1.)
And how much text can an array hold total?
Is it limited to computer memory only?
Sorry for the delay in responding, got side tracked.
Thank you LB, works fine now. :)
I need to get a spreadsheet in to MMF somehow but can't figure out how.
The file being read can be txt, csv or similar just as long as I can "import it" and handle the data.
Should we prepare our own scenes and characters beforehand or will you supply us with everything for the lessons?
I'd be willing to share costs (within reason) if you can't find any free, good working alternative.
Yes, thanks for the info.
No worries if it'll take a while before ready. We are happy it's being done at all! :)
Good suggestion GF202.
I need to learn this and have little clue on how to do it even though I've read miles of theories about it. I always fall on the math since I'm an absolute no-math person...
No need to be rude or sarcastic.
This can happen if one have made a search for example, and don't take note of the date of the post. :)
Looking forward to what ever it is. :)
Oinc is one big "good things happens" and makes the great MMF even better.
Will we all have our web cams going so we can be like a "real class room" or is that not doable?
As far as I can see you are 9 hrs ahead of England.

Any example of this around so we can learn? :)

The subapp path was still in it's properties in the mainapp. Deleted now and should be correct.

Thanks guys for the suggestions! It pushed me the right direction....
That works. But I'm getting a short flash of frame 1 which is what I'm trying to figure out how to avoid.
Don't know how to solve that. Last resort will be to split the app up and have every frame...
This is how I have it but using Shared data and it works. But I figured it'd be smoother and easier using the Action directly for the subapp. The option is there so it ought to work, no? :) ;)
