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")

When there are coding pictures, there are already some functions (yellow shapes) already there, but when I do them, they're not. For example, "When Created" is not there or any where. Help!

Stencyl asks me to upgrade to 3.4.0 when I try to load the crash course kit. I click update and it gives me an error. Where can I get the crash course kit files that work with build 8398?
