Is there a difference between agent colliding with coin and coin colliding with agent?

I don’t think there is. I’ve been working on a small Undertale related thing and I was making it so Alphys and Gaster would collide with eachother and I think it did pretty much the same thing. I don’t really think that it would matter if the collision command was placed it one, the other, or both. Though in the case of collisions having different effects depending on the object (such as doors or coins), I think it would make more sense to have the collision and effect command in the item itself just to keep from having too much… Read more »

GameSalad will not let me import my own music. The horrid music that came in the project files works, but I can’t use my own. I’ve tried wav, ogg, m4a, but nothing seems to work. Any help?

First navigate to the location of the zip folder on your computer using file explorer. Double-click it to open it, then highlight all of the contents. Right click on one of them and click “copy” then go back outside of the zip folder and right click on, say, your desktop, and click paste. The contents will now be on your desktop. If you want them to be more neat, right click your desktop and and go to “new” and click “folder.” You can drag all of the files into the folder.

Hi Kian,

In this particular video we do not go over jumping but in this course creating an indie platformer we do go over jumping and talk about the solution to an infinite jump. This information is missing in the Windows version so when you are ready to learn this action have a look at the Jump video here in the MAC version.

Let me add onto my previous question….I want the agent image to disappear once coming in contact with the teleport portal only to re-appear once moved to the new coordinates..

Depends on the kind of effect you’re looking for, I guess. I set the interpolate time to 0 and it made him just appear there without any strange… scooting around? I think that makes sense.

Is there a way to get an actor to disappear and then re-appear in a different location? If so, how? I’m was working on the agent project within the 2D Game Design training, when I thought I would take the portal entry point one step further…

Thank you for that, I have advanced a bit further and have run into another issue. When I go to add the music file it comes up with an error message saying ‘Error in WAV file. No ‘RIFF’ chunk marker’. I have done the sound files for the coin and portal, they worked fine but not the music file.

I have tried downloading the project files again but the same error message keeps coming.

Thanks

Hi I am unable to download the project files for this set of tutorials. I click to download them, then it doesn’t seem to load up the page. Chrome comes up with an error saying “This site can’t be reached. http://www.schoolofinteractivedesign.com refused to connect.” I have tried what it recommends to try and it still doesn’t work. What should I do?

Hi Nathan! It would help us to understand whats going wrong if we can see what your experiencing. A great way is by screen captures and screenshots. There are many ways to record your voice and computer screen, but we highly recommend a free tool called Jing. You can download Jing here: http://www.techsmith.com/jing.html HOW TO SHARE YOUR LINK When you are done with your recording click on the share button on the far left corner on of the Jing screen it will start downloading to screencast.com where you can hold all of your captured videos to share the link again… Read more »

I can’t get the Alpha 0 to work on the display score actor. I’ve tried and retried 3 times, including saving, exiting gamesalad and reloading, but still it shows with the white background. What can I do?

Hi Owen,

You can use a .png that already has transparency in it. Or, after double clicking on an actor in your actor bin you can remove the white background by going to Graphics (in the actors attributes) then changing the blend mode to Multiply. That will remove anything that is pure white.

Let us know if that solves your problem!

Best,
Andre

Hi Marc,

It seems that you were watching the Mac tutorial videos by mistake. For Windows, the instructor beings his rule in the Character Movement video at the 2:35 time marker. Mac and Windows do have some very different settings! :)

Please let us know if you need any further assistance.

Best,

Jennifer
