Anything ever happen with this?
Personally i don't listen to music whilst playing games, nor do i see the point? IMO it ruins the atmosphere and experience of the game.
Can't you just have a mute button on the main screen to turn...
Adventure of Link FTW!
Having this issue aswell, will try the Clear Preloaded Data!
I'm on my mobile and not near a computer with fusion, so may not be exact., But you don't need to use binary files to accomplish that.
Just use the INI object and have an event:
start of frame:...
I haven't tried but would think it'd be either of the two below:
The full path that is shown in the binary e.g "C:\Users\xxxxx\yyyyy\zzzzz\myPicture.png"
just the filename e.g "myPicture.png"...
Having problems with Run Application/Run Frame. Using either, Fusion basically hangs with the progress bar stuck. After say 10 seconds, it responds and the little runtime/debugger pops up, but the...
I just tried sharing an Image & text and it worked perfectly sharing to Hangouts & Email, however, both the text & image didn't work with sharing to Facebook (via Facebook app), nothing was attached...
This is awesome news! Can't wait to try it
I came across this as well, i made a game for android which uses the accelerometer object and tilting the phone to move the character. Tried it on phone (nexus 5) and an iPad and the movement...
Just wondering if this ever got implemented? I can't seem to find an option to make the canvas transparent?
i'd really love to have this as it would allow for some seamless integration into a...
I don't think SQLite is available for android unfortunately, it would make it a whole lot easier for database interactions!\
You can use GET object to POST/GET to a PHP script, which then would...
I don't see why it would be so difficult, infact it seems quite straightforward IMO, unless i'm missing something?
You could accomplish this all with some basic extensions/controls (List, Edit,...
Ads + scrolling = no good.
I haven't tried for a long time, as i ended up getting rid of ads when there was scrolling present because of it.
When the ad renders the framerate takes a big hit.
Will do, thanks Fernando!
Has anybody submitted a game to FGL and received the offer? If so how long did it take?
Unfortunately only just the stack trace, the Developer Console doesn't provide any more information.

With one of my applications I've had a few crash reports in the past week, this is all that is shown in the Developer Console:

Great stuff Kimera, this should solve the problem for alot of people!
After seeing that the formatting for INI files had been corrected in the latest Beta build for HTML5 i have installed and tested.
Now i can include INI files which already contain data (levels) in...
I haven't used it but was looking at purchasing it, would like to also hear if it actually works?
Have you tried using Newline$ in the string expression.
Great news, thanks Francois!
I was having the same problem with arrays, but didn't test as extensively as i did with INI, i'm wondering if embedded arrays that contain data have the same encoding...
Awesome news! Thanks very much Francois!
For this project i'm using embedded INI files, i tried seeing if i could get an array to work(thinking it may be a problem with INI files), i made a test array file (which i just used CF to write a...
Wow, looking awesome Andy!
Francois or anybody have any input on how to read an INI/Array file that already contains data (e.g. external levels) into a HTML5 build?
Thanks for the example, though it does show writing & reading to an embedded INI file in HTML5, it uses a blank INI file to do so.
I think the problem happygreentreefrog and myself are...
Okay just tried and same as happygreenfrog.
Works in windows, but not HTML5.
Attached is basic attempt at loading from binary.
Hi Francois, that is my usual method of loading external files from binary in Windows and Android.
When I get home tonight I'll try again in a blank MFA and follow your instructions exactly and...
With Admob you have two options.
1) In the Android properties, check "Enable Ads" (like you've already done) and put in the Admob ID. Fusion will handle the displaying of ads automatically.
Awesome, thanks again Fernando!!
Fernando: Is it possible to remove this permission/disable it for the Admob object, or possible to somehow edit permissions so it isn't automatically set when exporting?
I also tried loading Arrays (to eliminate the possibility that it was just INI files) and they also didn't work.
Tried having the array file in the same folder as the HTML file,...
Hmm tried apppath$ and still nothing, it returns nothing for me testing in HTML5 anyway (build & run and on webhost).
I've tried every way i can think of to load an INI and simply can't get it to...
Thanks, i looked and "create INI in App data folder" is unchecked, and am yet to be successful in loading an INI file in HTML5 :(
I have no problem loading INI on Android/Windows.
I've noticed that the permission "Read phone status and identity" is required when using the Admob Object to display banners.
However, if i remove the object, and use the default Enable Ads and...
Anybody know how to load from an INI for HTML5?
After seeing the FGL offer, i decided i'd try and port and Android project over to HTML5.
I'm using a single frame to load the levels from INI files, however i can't seem to get the loading to work...
In Application properties, choose the Android Tab.
Scroll down to "Launcher Icon" and press the Edit button, this is where you put your Icons for Android.
I believe the web View object can be used to download files on Android.

Yes! Sorry only just got to test it and it works perfect!

+1 For OGG.
Good compression and never had any problems.
How are you playing them?
You *shouldn't* have problems with them not playing.
Also are you converting them from Wav/Mp3 to OGG, and if so...
You can use the GET object to pull the data from the feed, then parse it using String Parser and pull the stuff you want!
Looks awesome, loving the destructive background!!
Is there any music in your app?
If so what are the file types (eg wav, mp3)
Looks really good! Loving the art style, game gives me a very Mario/Adventure Island feel.
Will this be for IOS or Android? or both?
Any chance of this being ported to Android James?
Good to hear Brett!
GET object & String Parser open up alot of possibilities, they will help you in other facets of game/app creation!
I know you can retrieve the Date using the Date & Time object on Android. I'm assuming the same object works fine for retrieving device time, but haven't tested!

Sorry i can't help.
Just wanted to say i LOVED zelda 2 (i know most didn't), are you making some sort of remake?
looking good so far!
These are actually really great suggestions!
You cant even rename the prefilled animations AFAIK. Seems like a very old thing that just never got updated.
And +1 the OR system is very messy.
I'm not experiencing any issues with this.

The download link works, but my antivirus (avast) triggers a false positive and basically cancels the download.
Disable your antivirus for 10 minutes, download and install.
+1 for Konidias suggestion.
I don't think its possible to put an active object in front of a System Object (progress bar, button, edit), though i haven't really experimented with layers/sub...
Yep, thats what i'd do!
Create Object (any co-ordinates, outside play area probably).
Set object X to Random()
Set obect Y to Random()
I believe one of the options is set default to overwrite the data when you choose "new/load ini".
Check your new/load ini events, and change the options accordingly.
If you are loading/saving two...
I made a calorie counting program about a year ago:

It was a harsh, though gondracorn creates a topic wanting to purchase CF2.5 with a method other than what is on offer, but then goes onto say: "I see this "2.5" things as a way to get people's...
Taking a stab in the dark, and haven't tested but i would initially try:
(X pos of "object 1" + X pos of "object 2")/2
If you don't have a debit card or a bank account then that is entirely your fault, not clickteams.
In fusion you use the GET object to do this.
See this thread (it has an example attached) which will help you:...
I think this topic has been brought up before, Honestly i would forget the idea of a second mouse.
Users aren't going to goto the effort of getting out a second mouse (if they have one) and...
Hey mate, What CF2.5 build version are you running?
If you haven't already, update to the latest beta build and see if its fixed. I do recall something with fast loops and frame restarts being...
Awesome, will download and test!
Great to see some more extensions for android!
AWESOME Dracis! Resizing technique is great, seems like the best way to accomplish fullscreen HTML without the distortion.
Also wondered this.
I just experiment with building with 1.1 and 2.0 with each app/game i'm making, and see what gives the best performance.
I've noticed 1.1 has given the best performance in my...
Yep, or you can do "<scale>" and "</scale>" as delimeters, doesn't have to be one character!
You can just use the Edit Object for input in Android.
Wow! Really, really impressive stuff tompa.
I was a long long time AVG user (8+ years), but have recently switched to Avast Free. I have to say i HIGHLY recommend it!
Just tested on waterfox (64bit firefox variant) and chrome and runs on both great on my machine (windows 7). It actually ran smoother for me in chrome!
Awesome, i tried setting up chartboost but for some reason it wouldn't let me upload frames (it would say uploading and never upload). Did you stick with the default frames for the ads? or upload...
Definitely possible, and relatively easy aswell!
Basically, you use the GET object to GET/POST data to some sort of script (PHP).
I've done mine with scoreoid:...
WOW! looks awesome mate! just updated then.
Its amazing what a change in look can give to a game, the graphics look AWESOME! very nice art, i especially like the city background and the buildings....
Thanks Fernando, makes sense!

Hey mate, the easiest thing for something like that, i would think is to make it all in one frame.
Just change the height of the frame to what you need and make it so it Always centers the screen...
Hey mate, i used to download every extension, but now not so much as i find you never actually use them unless its for a specific purpose. Its great to know what extensions are available, and what...
Glad to hear you got it to work, i was about to say that you can use String Parser and set newline$ as the delimiter.
Banduck posted it previously in the thread ^
Whats the specifications of you XP pc?
Is it a really old version of firefox, or latest?
Also IE 8 is really old, they are upto IE 11 now. I don't think IE8 would support HTML5 properly, or if it...
I've found Chrome to be the best by far, in terms of performance and everything working perfectly (sounds, music).
AWESOME! great news stephen, can't wait to use this in my current android project :)
^ The above loads fine for me in IE11, but yeh with updated build it is running alot faster
The Android Object can do this i believe!
Not sure about the method, but i know you need to use the layer extension to add/subtract layers alpha blending co-efficient.
Outcast i just tried in waterfox and IE 11 (version 11.0.9600.165128) and your example posted works for me.
Did you compile it with the latest beta build?
Its a one off $25 fee, and thats it!
Just have the box always positioned at the same spot as Perry mentioned:

Awesome stuff Francois! The loading time between frames was a real killer, the ability to load it all at the start is AWESOME! Thanks alot!!!
Also if you haven't tried using OpenGL 1.1 instead of 2.0, see if that makes a difference for your game. The current game I'm working there was a big difference (+10 FPS) using openGL 1.1
I think you're thinking too far into it mick, something to not worry about. 99% of people aren't going to turn off their Data connection to stop ads.
If you terminate the game because theres no data...

hahaha nice twist on flappy bird mate!!!
I wonder what build version of 2.5 Sparckman is using?
I'm on the latest build running 281.2, Windows 7 64 bit. That rules out the OS's, as it doesn't work for me.
Can you just add the box on a separate layer and uncheck "follow frame" in the objects properties?
Very nice! downloading now!
May i ask how you do the tick bullets on the Play listing?
Thanks Solar! For some reason i got caught up assigning a HP bar to each object, when as you said all i need is one!
Don't mean to hijack this thread, but after trying some of the examples and trying to accomplish this myself I'm trying to figure out how to only show the HP above an item that is selected?
Very nice Sloxone. The gravity and everything is perfect!
May i ask how you accomplish the scrolling background effect for a never ending game like this?
Are all the backgrounds moving and then...
Most likely you need to start looking at the Lacewing extension. Look at all the examples and documents you can find on that, and hopefully that should push you in the right direction!
Exactly what Klik-iT said!
That is a great tip Danny!

Yeh if you can get away with collisions with Box that might be the answer, otherwise you could try spawning them off screen like AndyH mentioned and see if that helps at all?
Because you had the condition: mouse pointer over grid, make cursor visible.
And if the user clicked and the cursor was visible the X's could be created.
So if the user clicks on the grid, then...
Ulisses i've uploaded your source with the collision set to box and not shape of first image. You should notice there's no slowdown or pause when they're created.
I'm not sure if you can get away...

The Item "Score" and the Group "Player" is just what i made up for the example. Basically you name the Groups and Items whatever you like, obviously you want it to be relevant to the information...
Okay quickly threw this together. Hope it helps! any questions let me know
To accomplish this you need to use global values/strings to pass the information through the different frames. Or if you need to record the name so it remembers each time the application is run, you...
Also have you tried setting an object to be at the position of the touch so you can visually pinpoint where the touch is registered eg. a fingerprint touch isn't going to be as accurate as a mouse...
You can still do that with the inbuilt mouse conditions AFAIK. eg. Repeat while user clicks left mouse.
But if you want to register multiple touches at a time, eg pinching and other motions, than...
Yes the mouse click event works fine for Android (I'm guessing IOS aswell, but i don't have that exporter).
I actually prefer to use it over the multi-touch, as you can easily test on PC before...

No worries, any questions just let know!
Probably not the best example, but hopefully it acts as a refresher and will put you in the right direction!
Heres a basic example of using global values to pass information between frames, and saving information to an INI.
I think providing an INI with default volume and configuration values would be the...
With the saving the volume and configuration information, as you said, you need to use something like the INI object.
Start of Frame:
Load INI file "settings.ini"
Set volume to: GroupItemValue(...
Okay so to carry over the lives, score and all the ingame stuff that doesn't need to be saved - Use Global Values.
The easiest way, is to rename the Global Values, for example:
I just checked and in both 2.5 and 2.0 mine don't appear like that?

Now thats solved, my next question regarding text blitting:
Has anyone figured out a streamline, easy way to import your own character set into Fusion?
I want to type out every character of a...
Thanks alot Konidias, i've got it working now thanks to your help!!
I've just started implementing the custom Text Blitting engine in a game, i want to use my own fonts for a highscore board (needs to be crossplatform) so this seems to be a great alternative.
Weirdly enough i pressed refresh and the list refreshed and everything was completely different (had install next to extensions i didn't have etc).
Can't believe i didn't try that first :S lol
Since the beginning of Fusion 2.5 i haven't been able to install any extensions via the Extension Manager.
I just keep getting "cannot download file" on no matter what extension.
If everything is setup correctly, you can just click build & run in Fusion (with your phone connected to the computer via USB) and it will export, install and run the app for you.
Yeh i think it depends on your connection, and the size of the ad im guessing? eg. a simple text ad would load quicker then maybe an animated picture ad. I'm not 100% sure if that's the reasoning...
I'm just about to goto bed so don't have time to post an actual example, I'd recommend looking for some basic INI examples, as the INI object is a great extension to use and you'll find you'll use it...
No worries, let me know how it goes or if you have any problems!!
You don't need to use the Admob object, only if you want to control the ads. If you're happy with how they're done by default, all you need to do is enable Admob in the applications android...
All you need to do is setup the admob account, get the Admob ID, put it into Fusion and Build & Run (Yes you need a device to see the ads work, they wont display in fusion).
Thankfully for you, you don't need to download the Admob SDK in order to use Admob with fusion! :)

This is how i do it on Android, and AFAIK its the exact same routine:
1) Add file to data elements - binary files.
Copy the whole path to the file:

I'm actually very interested in this.

WOW! so many amazing quality games that i've never seen, really does showcase that possibilities are endless with MMF/Fusion.
Pradeep have you tried changing the target version of android to 4.3 and Build API to say 18? do you have problems then?
AFAIK you don't need to goto all that trouble if you just want to have an array file included in the data elements tab.
