OK, you may as well prevent the user from targeting inside an obstable - (or) - if they do, push the target out of the obstacle - toward to the objects - this is something anyone could modify...
what about constantly or periodically doing that pick
it does show the latest 6 or so doesnt it
its not wasting your time. what are you doing with it?
what i was saying, was something like this, but in the direction/line with the actual object moving to it.
it could be a simple as firing a pixel (using 360 degree angle) - at the original object...
what about a simulated ray trace between the clicked point and the object, and its intersection with the poly is the point? (closest to the target)
i just noticed LIVES object will only count from the left
;can it also have count from left or right edit box (like counters [Animation] type does; it has count from left or right/ up or down) ...

true, im kind of used to pressing the arrows, right/left or left/right as soon as this pop up comes up.
no one has any obligation to support you on XP anyway.
do you have those directions already in your animation?
perhaps, and its a big perhaps; something on your engine frame is loading up at start (probably big or intensive) and its just your pc delaying sometimes, maybe a memory issue, maybe access issue &...
This has probably been like this on older builds, but when you build an application, and save it overwriting the build (with same name etc) - and you since changed all the Game icons, the Icon doesnt...
ive done clocks many times; they way ive done it is like whats suggested above; tho i check the seconds; eg:

if seconds >=10 then...
that was way before his time dave - also properly run by Clickteam.
the de-highlighting of selected text in the expression editor when attempting to copy is still a problem/ not standard practice. (it should stay highlighted as normal)
Oh dear :/ i think you were best off not going there. this is why things like this should only be trusted by clickteam official channels. they've done this before - properly many times.
you seem to want all these "rules" and then on the other hand say its for "fun". people can showcase their skills anywhere. you just havent thought this through. id be surprised if anyone even...
why.. are there prizes? why do you need the mfa - apart from getting some open source? - are you going to make all those open source available. why should a complete random be trusted with those...
i might just send you 1 frame of the mfa
i have similar issues with animations.. there's something odd going on with the animation code.
ive also noted the animation just stops on occasions - it was on stopped animation looped. pressing keys rapidly also hung that - but not always. (it wasnt stickykeys either)
its actually the edit boxes which display the HEX and RGB values, they are made so they only just fit size0, before hand size2 fit normally. if those 2 edit boxes where made bigger, then...
will post when i get home; i havent changed any settings from previous because it was fine beforehand. where i first noticed was i was gettings the RGB values from the color picker and the bottom of...
the bigger font is a turn for the worse; it now gets cut off - i dont know why 1 person requested that it was too small, & you changed it. my sight isnt the best and it was fine beforehand.
i had an issue that i tried to reproduce but couldnt, so im not sure of the circumstance it triggered; but the basics of it was; (any event) do something with (any object); when i deleted the event...
yesterday - i thought i was going mad; the magenta is transparent, and just picked a different color not thinking too much about it.
1 thing that i do find off - is when you want to copy something in the expression editor; the highlighted section that you want to copy; (when you right click to copy) - the highlight disapears;...
looks fine to me
the physics currently is horrible; i spent all weekend, proving how bad it was compared to box2d. box2d wins / F2.5+ physics failed miserably.
its been asked a few times;
he's already said that's not happening - but will be in F3
so this thread ended 14 years ago..... btw, the answer is: use control X.
hopefully that puts an end to another confusing and misleading post them - maybe this should be a zero based post.
i think you need to give it to me to test it bud ;-P
confirmed, it isnt working right now
if the objects are over this number they dont appear. - i just set it high normally.
i guess you're new and havent seen all that stuff before- its easy to find on the internet.
you might want to scan through the older product forums. this subject has been addressed hundreds of times over the years. there's has been lots of examples available also. this is not new to...
what i normally do, is keep the object names similar so when you copy stuff its simple to alter: eg; [box 1] - when i clone it; it will make box 2, copy the events, and just change the 1 to 2 in the...
something that would be nice within the debugger output window; when it shows what animation is playing, it only lists the default ones by name, and then for others it says: "User Animation#1", "User...
btw there's a forum section, retired products... thats where this should have gone
i see what you're saying there, but that may lead to some confusion, especially to newcomers.
i have Jamagic still in its case. I wont part with it unless you pay me 1 million $
im guessing, not i will make sure when i get home; this sounds probably like whats going on. - thanks for the heads up
i checked on 293, and it also doesnt change it. im sure that it changed previously.
heres an MFA with Active; I just colored it orange and the icons for it, both in the lists and properties remain the default diamond.
quite frankly - im sick of editing icons... i NEVER ever had done this on any version before. its kinda painful
Nope. it happens not only clone - its Everything. make and active - modify it, and its icon remains the default diamond
when you clone an object; then alter the object to something else; the ICON remains the same and doesnt change with the alteration as it used to.
is this by design now where the ICON is not...
it saves the FOLDER where your MFA is located. - it is working correctly
ive always wondered why its not in the settings tho.
very short video showing the menu issue.
the menu is not Appearing when you right click. you got to hold right mouse then hover to menu to keep it there, otherwise it disappears
Picture editor; buttons seems fixed. but when you right click to Add a NEW animation, the menu doesnt stay up unless you hold your right mouse button down and then hover over the menu.
BUG: When trying to add another animation, you click but the menu wont stay; you have to hold the button down and then move onto the new selection; menu should stay when clicked New.
Issue in gfx editor window; [NON Critical]
*only when maximized*
after importing any image and returning to editor; the buttons are missing /invisible on any of the selections; eg resize; - only...
i like the add to font size. saves messing about with your systems display settings :)
sounds very unoptimized to me :/
yeah, my text size @125% did same, at 124% for me its just fine. maybe the preference window can be expanded to counter this
you dont need to copy events; just have it on each frame, set fullscreen at the start
I revisited this game after many many years. Complete with single player campaign, multiplayer, endless avalanche mode, retro and more.
question regarding this, because i found this was occuring; add backdrop - destroy object; i would have thought this was not contributing to any overhead - is it? i dont really know why theres a...
are you using 2.5+ ?
you know there's an event explorer right? (2.5+) it does what you are describing.
you might do this already, but i will copy the event(s) and paste it - especially if i got to repeat a ton of them. then go in and alter the conditions on them, even dragging the new condition onto...
that code is what happens when you copy from fusion; and paste to notepad++ ; this is taken directly from my time pilot version ( same as what you call space pilot )
the reactor pathfinding one will suit your goals - if at worst you can study and learn from it.

i always use array; its actually easier than ini (imo)
array just adds more nuisance to to and cheat - but people will always find a way.
you could encrypt the data ( BEFORE ) you save it tho,...
making a pointer as linky mentioned is a wise decision when you want to do this, also its easier to limit its position around the window etc.
good tip, ive never done this, but it something that i might use to double check stuff
its made by a CT member/staff. Its personal - not CT made.
to clarify; the Y position of the block, is where the character original ground is
ground contact eg;
number of ways to do it, but a simplistic way, is have a block (invis) at the foot of each character.
so for contact the 2 blocks would over lap ; (the block should be wide...

I know Clickteam does not want to re-invent the wheel nor try to waste time on the graphic editor when we already can do stuff in 3rd party editors, such as Gimp, Photoshop, etc.
But, a suggestion...
you have 2 layers; 1 is roof on top; the other is the "player layer" with walls of the house; on this layer also is invisible actives/triggers , so when you cross it - or land on it (eg, outside...
steam is for steam - not your stand alone; if you make that mistake you will have to contact CT and get it sorted
that size sounds like its insanely un-optimized
i know the creator, and ive seen this code.. and its way above intermediate level... infact its mind boggling.
id suggest finding someone who specializes with shaders and work from there.
i dont think you can copy across your path movement for another object.. it would be nice to copy them tho.
a tip/ workaround for this:
make a backdrop with a line representing your path, you can...
there's been 360 platform engines done in the past; the most accurate way is using sin/cos on 2 markers that are used to detect the angle of surface you are on.

this is an impressive article - thanks for your effort
eventually chris will get to it and fix it for you/ email either and he will see it. re: items on reactor, i dont think theres a filter, but you will see everything on the patreon pages.
you can get around this using multiple objects together, and using just 1 of them visibly.
there are tons of free graphic sites - do some searching; open game art for 1
here we go : sigh!
yeah, missing the fxc files from copperbar and colorcycle
restarting the current frame is somehow broken. i have a project which has 115 frames; each with a different game on each frame, and it used to work, restarting the current frame - would replay that...
ive always wondered why the lines option wasnt available as a grid. good to see it here now - even if it is such a minor thing
the set flags addition gives a new world of possiblities too
the list is the easiest way; create list with each line representing one of the numbers you want to choose from(eg; 5 lines with a different result); do a normal random(1-5); and pick the line from...
i guess if the color selected was changed to 0,0,0 - it would appear in fusion as transparent - ive never tried it
yes, but its a bit messy. saving your edited image using screen capture to a file, and loading that file to an active.
very good extension
nevermind, i saw he has shadows turned on in settings; although it doesnt work on other objects. I wish shadows would get fixed in Firefly
if you need buttons to go under things; you'll have to make them from actives
I noticed Patrice's Tanks of Fusion has a shadow for the players tank... How was this done? I looked at the code; but its a mess.
make sure you've got debugger etc turned off when running the examples in fusion.
sparkman was kicked out of the community under no glamorous circumstances. he's a sad character full of hotwind and an overbloated opinion of himself
knowing already whats going on and how to do this, i found your video to be a good lesson learning some italian ;-)
if you hadnt done so already..
on your start of frame; EDIT the NewPictures action; for the filename - click the expression button at bottom right corner; and use:
you can do many things; easiest is to move the frame around in the storyboard editor by grabbing the frame just left of the title and dragging it to another place.

markers are easiest, or you could do loops on the enemies distance to player and determine that way.
you may have to just do a solid shadow that's a bit darker than the floor. that's if its not a huge deal. ... you may want to animate the shadow if you are going anal on it tho.
i always use ICON & NAME in the editor regardless
i think someone made an example of this a long time ago, and probably is in the old examples.

it has a liquid/fluid shader for the blob lighting - do we have that? ... http://codeartist.mx/tutorials/liquids/
yes- by using 2 Alt values on one of the 2 objects; call them [X offset] and [Y offset] for example.
you can use the Alt values to always follow its target object - by always setting the follow...
there is a microphone object if that helps. the other way would be to find an .OCX activeX file for mic's and use the activeX object.
i looked. where it is going wrong, is you havent reset the Alt valUe ( conv-count ) back to [ zero ] when you either walk away or finish
user clicks on npc + convo_count >0 : set convo_count...

if you are doing a 2d array, then you MUST write to XY, and read value at XY ( not x)
there is nothing wrong with the array. I use it for everything and always have, and never struck a problem. i use it for saving settings, i use it for saving scores, i use it for anything and...
no- you are doing it wrong. if you write to X1, you should be in 1 base. if you are in 0 base, then write to , not 1... and you dont need to write to Y, if you are just doing a single dimension...
when you create an object; reserve one of its alt values to use as a timer; eg alt value T

1 base means it starts at 1. the zero element will always be a 0
number of ways to do it, but it depends all on your movement system. for example, if you were using speed for movement then just alter the speed of the object; if your are stepping co ords; then you...

and you got what to lose?
the way i read it, it seems advisable to "Use high performance GPU" rather than not.... would that be right?
you make the whole background as an obstacle to begin with, and create backdrops and paste them as NON obstacles for your digging.

you already are looking in the right direction. perhaps you should aim lower.

there are examples if you look hard enough. try marv's site; there's also one in the reactor if you want to join the patreon
its not the OS; it will be offset in different resolutions or monitors, making it look "not right"
you could also create a set of colliders, and using a fastloop move the set to each object, test its collision and then move to the next. 1 set of colliders for multiple objects.
but i had to drop in the window control object; then put start of frame; set width to WinXsize; set height to WinYsize; set X pos to WinXpos (* the x pos of application); set Y pos to...
add a counter to use as a timer instead of the built in timer. when there are no bricks, start adding 1 to the counter every 1 second. when the counter reaches 5 - jump to the next frame.
MOUSE clicks on OBJECT
+ only 1 action when event loops >>>> destroy OBJECT
that works, you need the limit condition
you can find activating or deactivating groups under [special conditions]
also eg; upon pressing SPACEBAR > activate group (xxx..)
look in the product owners lounge forums
that order should work... but you can just do it in 2 lines which would also work; start of frame? create - set etc; repeat on next line.
#1; you dont really need 2 objects to hold the data ( starting ammo, and drain) - just ammo will be fine; you can add and subtract from the 1 counter which will save headaches.

this always happens with me, but only the first time i open it. if i close it and re-open it, it loads up quite fast.
from tests; i see approximately (locked at 60fps) speed of 5 = 37-38 pixels per second, speed of 10 = 75 pixels per second. speed of 20 = 150 pixels per second. so you can see a pattern
many ways to do this, just a simple one would be...
you need 2 actives:

what is the category heading? if it another active, you could set its hotspot centered; and then just align all the other actives under it by setting their X-pos to the headings x pos.
with a backdrop - you can set its obstacle as a ladder... but go for active, because you have a hotspot, which you can use to keep the character set to the ladder.
eg; if the character is climbing...
you can move a pointer over some letters (actives), and press button, which then adds the letter to the string
to get angles of floors/ground you can place 2 detectors either side of the characters feet, and find the angle of the floor/ground by the position of those 2 detectors. its then up to you, how you...
if this had better gfx - it would be a winner. i would advise you go seek a pro artist to help

many people have done it, and you will have to do it also
