4) Orange arrows? I think I'm missing a page. I click on settings and then I have this menu "Area Settings" (scrolling2.png). In "View" i can change "Follow Character" or "Travel..."
5) ??? OK, Hmm... You mean that (Character.png)
4) I saw the video and I think that boundary arrows (the orange ones) is all you need.
5) I don't know what's going on there. Default enemy setting work just like Mario. can I see your character settings, in case you changed something there?

WOW, thank you so much for this detailed information.
I'm afraid it will take me a bit to implement this.
I'll definitely get back to you.
Should i have learned English better. ::)

4) I can choose between "follow Character" and "Travel". "Follow Character is good. Only when jumping does the screen move with it. It would be great if i could say "yes" to the left and right in "Follow Character" and "no" to Up and down.
Scroll up and down is bad for secret passages. Like the Video "Fear2"

5) Hmm... Have tried everything...
Both off = Character can go through enemy.
Harm Character = Character dies on each side and enemy lives.
Harmed by character = enemy dies on each side and both on = everyone dies.

I would find it better than in "Mario Bross". Face to face the character dies and jump on enemy the enemy dies.
Completed Games / Level Mayhem - new patch!

Surprise! The latest patch is now live.
Aside from the brand new Accessibility settings, I addressed some sloppy command work and dealt with fatal errors.
4) what are you referring to? there is a button for Fixed and Loose movement in the "View" window of Area Settings. are you trying to set scrolling somewhere else in the game?
5) no need for "Harmed by Character" to be checked. this setting makes it so every collision with the player will kill the enemy, which is more useful for... say puzzles, or set-pieces. might be causing you the problems, for some weird reason. either that or turn off "Harm Character", it's your call.

Hey Eagle, sorry for the late reply. I don't check forums often these days.

you can't change the behaviour of Checkpoint items (looped animation and the text). however, it's possible to set a check point without any output - that's by using the semi-transparent option from the item box, or a command. to display a decoration that will stop looping its animation, it's possible to change frame speed for entities (items, enemies and blocks) from 0 to 12. unfortunately this doesn't apply to custom sprites, only these entities, so we have to get creative.
create a custom enemy and check for everything that makes it interact with the player (disable all forms of damage that's given or taken). make it stationary (so speed=none in movement settings).
the idea is, this enemy has a graphic of an inactive checkpoint for default. place a semi-transparent checkpoint and a command block on top of it, ideally at head height. you might need to turn on Smart mode to force the placement. this is how the prompt would look like:
Code: [Select]
enemy [ID] sprite = [sprite ID] (change to the active checkpoint variant)
enemy [ID] animation = 1-12 (redundant, you might not need this)
delay [number of ms] (you have to time this yourself)
enemy [ID] animation = 0

you'll need to convert your checkpoint graphics so it works as a custom sprite. I believe I showed you how to do that before.
it's a bit of a hassle, I know. the good news is if you manage to do that, you're given a lot of flexibility and can make this part of the game very unique. hope this helps  :D

Hello, me again ;D

I changed the checkpoint graphic. With a flag that's down.
If the character passes, it will be hoisted....ok, but the animation is repeated.
So, the flag is raised again and again. Can be change that? So, do the process only once and the fan stays up?

And the lettering "Checkpoint" is not necessary.
Can this be removed? I think, it makes sense that this is a chackpoint.

Thanks ;D

Thanks for the information!

1✔) Ah, there it is. I Changed it up and it looks a lot better.
2✔) Changed the clover from money to star. Star has the function with 100 stars is a life. Didn't know that.
3✔) Looks much better (Picture HUD-3) ;D.
4!) I can't find any scrolling options. Only Character scrolling and automatic scrolling.
5!) I have custom enemy (picture Enemy).
6✔) I found it in the character setup (Projectile Freqensy).

Thanks for your help ;D
My answers won't be too specific, so I recommend you refer to the Command Prompt page. If you're not comfortable with using commands, check TingThing's tutorial. It may be a good idea to watch the entire playlist in general, it's a nice starting point: you may even learn some new things  C:-) O:-)

1. You can change coin sprites from the Items 2 sprite sheet, alternatively upload your graphic as a "Sprite" and replace default coins with custom items. This has other perks as well.
2. The easiest solution would be to change currencies from coins to stars. If this has to be money, you can add a conditional like this:
Code: [Select]
if money=100
//add whatever you want to happen
Best used with a custom item, as they have command prompts that can check for this only when they're collected. Adding this to a Looping command prompt would work fine, if not a bit wasteful. Looping prompts essentially repeat a set of commands every few frames.. so don't get too carried away or your game might get choppy  ;D
3. Yes, you can change most of the HUD with commands. I don't remember if anyone made a good tutorial/presentation... it would be useful because it's pretty clunky and unintuitive. I could guide you through that process if you want to deal with that.
4. Change scrolling settings from Loose to Fixed (I believe that's what they're called). The screen will stay fixed vertically.
5. What enemy are you using? Is it one of the default ones or is it custom?
6. Automatic isn't the default setting. I'm not sure what you mean by this, did you change th setting somewhere or do you want to limit the amount of bullets that can be on screen?
