Crash Course 2: Invaders - Part 15

by Hectate (Updated on 2015-05-02)

Part 15: Final Touches

Step 102: Now that you’ve tested your game and everything works, it’s time to export it to your desktop as a SWF file. That way, you can open the file in any browser to play the game! Open the Publish menu, select Web, Flash.


Step 103: Stencyl will create a SWF file and ask you to choose where to save the file and what to name it.

Congratulations! Now that you have your Crash Course game, you can take on the Challenges that follow, and modify the Crash Course game further, or you can start on your own game! The choice is yours.

Here are a few challenges you could take on if you want to take this project further. We won't provide you with any solutions, it's up to you to figure out how to add these features.



Challenge 1: Find a way to make the Enemy Ships move back and forth on screen.

Challenge 2: Restrict how frequently the player can fire the cannon, either by setting a maximum for the number of bullets on screen or by limiting how quickly the player’s Ship can fire bullets.

Challenge 3: Make the Enemy Ships fire back at the Player.


Where do I go from here?

There's a whole lot more to Stencyl, and we encourage you to experiment on your own and read through the rest of Stencylpedia to find out how to import your own resources, create your own Behaviors, and enable Stencyl to help you create the games of your dreams.

Holy friggin dog shart, that was a lot of work and I didn't even attempt the challenges and I feel like my understanding is only a little bit better.

But like they say, if you can get 1% better every single day, you'll be 365% better after a year, and that's not even after compounding the interest. Because let's say you're 10% better today, and then 10% better than that tomorrow, you're actually 21% better than you were on the beginning of day 1.

1.My bullets shoot but on the left side of my screen they don't appear until half way up the screen and on the right side they come from off the screen
2. My YOU WIN is towards the bottom right hand corner
any suggestions cant figure out what's wrong

It could possibly be because your bullets may be set to a group other than the bullets group. If so, they SHOULD be set to the bullets group. Hope this helps :) ps: that is what happened to me
