    You could idle away the whole day, or night, just being awed by all these images and videos. That's exactly what I plan to do tonight. :)

  • Re: Screen misaligned after device wake up (Android BUG) My solution

    I don't seem to have this issue as my games don't actually go into sleep mode (at least not on my test device)...

    I wonder - does having a timer in your scene that changes an attribute Every X seconds prevent sleep mode? If so this may be why my games aren't sleeping, and therefore a temporary solution until GS get their act together.

  • Put a little space in your games:

    NASA made their photo library easier to search and the images are copyright free.
    So if you need some background photos for a space game:

    Hi Freneticz,

    Nice game!

    I tested your game on a bug im annoyed about and it has it too.

    See here:

    The screen gets off center in every scene when turning the screen off while playing the game. When you come back to the game the screen is off center.

    Players will think its bad programming and may give negative reviews. Also in the past google removed games cause of this bug.

    You knew about this bug and if its gonna be fixed by GS?

    Greets,

    Robert

    Hi & thanks for trying the game.

    Yes i knew about the missalign bug, the thing they did was to not let the screen turn of automatic......after that i have not Heard or read anything about it.

    But the bug is still there. So many people turn their screens off during play and come back later, only to see that its one big mess.

    I dont get it. Nobody seems to care about this but its a really big problem.

    How can GS accept their games having their screens out of alignment?

  • Anyone here that doesn't live in the US but got the student discount?

    Hey GameSalads!
    I've tried to get an educational discount as a student of a german university but seemingly this doesn't qualify anymore. A few years ago I got a student discount while being enrolled at exactly the same university.
    Since there is no information whatsoever about who's exactly qualified for a student discount I'd be interested if there are more people like me here that aren't living in the US but tried to get a student discount and were rejected or actually got accepted.

    Cheers!

  • Re: Stop actor when conditions are not valid

    Interpolate is a persistent behavior that doesn't stop -- as you discovered -- until it completes. You'll need to do manual interpolation instead. For example:

    When [conditions are true]
         Change attribute self.increase to random(80,220)
         Change attribute self.startingX to self.Position.X
         Timer for 0.5 seconds
              Loop
                   change attribute self.Position.X to self.Position.X+(self.increase-self.startingX)/0.5

    Edit: eh, my math is off. Tired this morning. I think you'd divide by the number of seconds per cycle, so something like 0.03. You may find a better example if you search the forums for manual interpolation or custom interpolation.

  • Re: Timer not html timing

    I'd use a rotating actor as the animation controller.

    Constrain the frame number to the Rotation of the controller.

    Aaahh! The most frequently asked question in this business.

    How to you end up with a $1m from app development?

    Start with $2m! :D
