Hey all,

One of my New Years Resolutions is to begin posting community project files and video tutorials. The last 6 months have been super busy and things are starting to slow down. Time to get back to it! We've created a new section on GSHelper.com which contains all of these tutorials so it's easy for you to find them.

This thread will contain all of the past and future tutorials and project files I create for the community. My hope is that both seasoned and not-so-seasoned GameSalad users learn at least a thing or two from my simple tutorials.

Sorry for the long, long, long thread! I feel bad for you people who have to scroll down to view new comments. \:D/


Alright, let's go! New tutorials are listed first and old tutorials are listed near the bottom.

In this tutorial, I show you how to create a basic word game with writable tables. A lot of people still use dozens of game attributes for word games. With the introduction of writable tables, all of those game attributes are no longer needed. Take a look and follow this tutorial to better understand how to use writable tables.

This way a really fun project. I had gotten tons of emails and personal messages here on the forums for this baby.
Rotate the camera in any direction, and the gravity which is applied to the actor will continue to accelerate as if it’s direction is set to 270(down). This demo is simple, but fun to tinker around with. Two methods are supplied.

This is something I created that never really made it in one of our templates. Tired of using dozens of Constrain Behaviors for multiple objects on a Scene when you want to use the Magnitude function inside GameSalad Creator? Tired of having all of the attributes for the Constrains? Well no longer! With GSHelper Radar Detection, you can simply place an actor on the Scene, add a condition to an actor, and you’re set to go!

Use radar to inform the player if they are too close to something. A great example of using magnitude using Tables and Table to Table references within rules.

Press Preview. Sit back, watch and relax.

NOTE: This demo currently only runs in the Nightly Build application. You must have GameSalad Pro in order to use this project.

This demo checks to see if the word entered in the project is a word in the Answer table. While there are other ways to do this, this method uses the new Loop Behavior which is currently found in the Nightly Builds.

We did this webinar back in June of 2013. It was an awesome test to see how many people we could get to watch an hour + long tutorial. We were able to fit, if my memory is correct, just about 300 people in there. Great stuff.

Here’s the video of our very first GSHelper webinar. We provide the art file for you to download (click the link below to go to the product), and you get to build the COMPLETE game by watching and learning.

I created these tutorials when Universal Binaries were a new thing and were mysterious to the community. These tutorials served to show how to use a simple method to make sure any project worked on any iOS device. I can't take all of the credit for this one, though. Darren from DBA initially came up with the numbers for one of the iPhone projects. I just plugged in new numbers for each device.

They stretch, but depending on the type of game you're making, it may work out well for you. With some tweaking, these methods have helped me with several projects and they look great on the devices.

This was a nice tutorial. Can't take all of the credit -- someone, I believe @RThurman, posted the logic and gave me permission to create a video tutorial out of it so others could learn, too. Change an actor’s moving speed depending on how fast your swiping your finger.
