Abigayl's Interactive Tutorials (Part 1)

by Joe (Updated on 2012-07-21)


Tutorial 1 - The Basics

 

CHANGES TO CURRENT STENCYL VERSION:

  • Game Center is now Dashboard
  • No longer need to make Actor Behaviors; can use "Events" tab instead
  • Now need to use "Add an Event" at the top left to make the headings
  • If using events, do not need to "Attach to Actor" (still needed with Behaviors though)
  • Collisions Groups are now in the Settings button at the top of the page
  • Collisions between Actors are now handled by collision events (use "Member of Group" and change the group to "Actors")

Thank you very much, it served me perfectly. For what I need more, over time I can control the amount of actors that I need and without any mistakes.
