Under rating threshold (show) just wondering, why put a tutorial on a game site?

+ - !

(0)

Developer response from Abigayl

There's an entire category on here for tutorials. In fact, what first inspired me to make them was Kongregate's own "Shootorials".

Developer response from Abigayl

Take a look at my other tutorials/games then ;). Besides trolls and multi-posts, I answer nearly 100% of all comments. If you take the time to write a comment, then IMO, it deserves the time to read and reply :)

Under rating threshold (show) I tried to do the same thing as you did. But it doesn't work the same for me and I don't know why

Developer response from Abigayl

There will be some differences between the demo and your game (specifically going out of bounds). If it something other than that, please feel free to come to the livestream (livestream.com/poweredbyflowers) and ask directly what is going on and/or upload the game to Forge and let me see it for myself.

Under rating threshold (show) I love that you do this. Its encouraging to have a direction to point new users that have questions. I am so bad at giving stencyl advice, unless I have a visual reference to give (despite being quite familiar, and a member of the early pre-flash beta),

It's not a game. It's a tutorial, and clearly labeled as such.

Developer response from Abigayl

Yep, every tutorial I make has a demo of the game at the end. I think it really helps for those following the tutorial to see what their game should have made (although I do have to adjust it slightly to make it work inside the tutorial). Thanks for the 5!

Under rating threshold (show) I think it's great when members of Kongregate spend time and effort to help others, which you did very well with this tutorial. Nice detail, by the way. It just needs some BGM! ;) 5/5

+ - !

Developer response from Abigayl

Thanks for the 5! :) I would do some BG music, but I don't know what music is appropriate for a tutorial, and I figured not many would want it for a tutorial. If there is indeed an interest, will put it in.

Under rating threshold (show) Its too bad the software costs $99 for windows and $149 for iOS software. I like the fact that you can program Objective-C for iOS without owning a mac. That alone makes this software worth it. Only problem is 149 is quite a commitment.

+ - !

(2)

Developer response from Abigayl

Solar, Stencyl is FREE to use. The only thing is that Stencyl requires a mention on the preloader (either their splash screen or a little icon). The ENTIRE program can be used without any purchase. The only thing that the $99 does is allow you to get rid of the Stencyl labeling (and the $149 for the same thing for iOS games). All 13 of my programs before this one were made with the free version, netting $100 for charity!

That's why it says tutorial everywhere (and is listed as a tutorial) :P. I just wish it wouldn't go in the games sections so that people didn't confused thinking it's going to be a game...

Under rating threshold (show) I had no experience whatsoever with creating games, I've made a game and I've made 18 cents off of it so far, man, this tutorial made me rich!

+ - !

Developer response from Abigayl

;). Expand your knowledge. Never give up a thirst for learning how to do more, better. If you do, that amount can be multiplied by a one and quite a few 0's. However, it takes a lot of dedication.

Under rating threshold (show) This tutorial was very helpful. I had zero programming experience and was still able to make a very simple test game with it. Now I plan to learn how to make better graphics and understand more about the coding itself. Great job Abi, and good luck to all developers!

Aye, seeing things visually helps a lot. It also means you don't have to worry about missing the annoying end brackets, commas, etc. that cause issues galore in normal coding.

I don't know those games... if you could describe them a bit more, might be able to work aspects into this tutorial set (assuming they are platformers). EDIT: The ideas will be in later tutorials.
