Topic: Run Mobile / Official "chat about anything" thread

I don’t know. There are some mobile-specific bugs I need to fix, so it depends how tough those turn out to be.

Hopefully. However, there’s no point if you can’t share them, so first I have to work out a way to share levels.

Topic: Game Programming / Experiences with cross-platform 3D Flash games?

Originally posted by Egalisator:

And of Kongregates mobile showcase, only ONE of the games that exist on mobile and web, Run 3, seems to use Flash.

Cardinal Quest 2 has a Flash version, for the same reason Run 3 does: both games were made with OpenFL.

Originally posted by Egalisator:

I’m asking myself why Flash is so unpopular for making mobile games. Is it just because Unity is seen as a hip new thing while Flash security leaks get a lot of bad press, or is development a lot easier with unity?

Unity certainly is easier to make 3D games in, and there’s the issue of Adobe not focusing much on AIR.

However, an equally big part of it is marketing. Unity markets itself pretty aggressively, while AIR and OpenFL barely market themselves at all. And if people never hear about OpenFL, they won’t use it.

Topic: Run Mobile / Unheard song

I found it repetitive, so I left it out. That said, I might put it in the “???” levels.

what i dont understand is that my highscore on mobile 25.123m finaly (?) shows on the leaderboard.

Kongbot tries to filter out cheaters while leaving plausible scores. Your score might have been so far ahead that Kongbot didn’t believe it, until enough other people set scores in that general ballpark.

Good idea starting this topic player 03. Also can u tell me how the whole locking thing works. Can players do it or only you?

I’m the one who locks threads. Kongregate admins could do so too if they wanted, but they focus on removing spam posts.

The average player can’t lock threads, besides threads they started.

Topic: Game Programming / Error #2037 AS3

To post formatted code, use the <pre> and </pre> tags. Make sure you add a blank line before and after, like so:

Normal text here, followed by a blank line.


<pre>
public class Main extends Sprite
{
    //...
}
</​pre>


Normal text here, but only after a blank line.

To figure out when the error happens, compile in debug mode (choose “debug” in the box that says “release”). Then when an error happens, it will give you a “stack trace,” including line numbers. Post the entire stack trace, and we’ll help you understand what it means.

I usually look through the forums once or twice a day, and I lock off-topic threads when I come across them.

Topic: Run Mobile / Official "chat about anything" thread

It looks like a lot of you want a place to chat about things besides Run 3/Run Mobile. I don’t want to stop you, but I also don’t want too many off-topic threads, so here’s my compromise.

Discuss anything you like in this thread, as long as it follows Kongregate’s ToS and conduct guidelines. Introduce yourselves, talk about your other hobbies, talk about the weather, etc.

I’ll go first:

My name is Joseph Cloutier, and I’m the developer of the Run series. My hobbies include making games, playing games (mostly indie games), reading (mostly webcomics and TV Tropes), writing, and discussing philosophy. The weather today is nice: sunny with a clear sky, even if it’s still a bit chilly.

Hi, are u like The spokesman for kongreGate

No. I’m the developer of the “Run” series, which are just a few of the many games Kongregate has published.

Originally posted by ED155508lovsRun3:

I checked it up on run3.net Im SO Excited for that!

That site isn’t an official source. The next game will be called something other than “Run 4,” and it isn’t coming soon. (I have to finish Run 3 first.)

Topic: Game Programming / I need a framework/engine that fits my needs

So you want something lower-level than Citrus but higher than Stage3D? Starling sits directly between the two.

Also, Citrus doesn’t force you to use the included physics engines. You could just ignore them and write your own.

I had “Accept third-party cookies:” set to Visited. I changed it to Always, and the game loads fine now.

Worked for me too. Thanks!

Just remember to change it back after starting the game, to protect your privacy.

Topic: Run Mobile / Didn't get the easter skin

Sorry for the confusion, but there isn’t an Easter-specific costume. It’s just the regular Bunny.

That’s what the description was getting at: if you collect enough power cells, you can buy the Bunny. (And you have more achievements, so you’re closer to unlocking it that way too.)

Topic: Game Programming / How to organize an exploration map?

Look through the options listed here. You’ll need to modify them a bit to store the node position and state, but it wouldn’t be hard.

Haxe example:

class Map {
    private var nodes:Vector<Node>;
    
    public function new() {
        nodes = new Vector();
    }
    
    public inline function getNode(id:Int):Node {
        return nodes[id];
    }
    
    public inline function addNode(location:Point):Void {
        nodes.push(new Node(nodes.length, location));
    }
    
    public function connectNodes(a:Int, b:Int):Void {
        var nodeA:Node = getNode(a);
        var nodeB:Node = getNode(b);
        
        nodeA.addConnection(nodeB);
        nodeB.addConnection(nodeA);
    }
}

class Node {
    public var id:Int;
    public var location:Point;
    public var state:NodeState;
    public var connections:Vector<Node>;
    
    public function new(id:Int, location:Point) {
        this.id = id;
        this.location = location;
        state = Unknown;
        connections = new Vector();
    }
    
    public inline function addConnection(destination:Node):Void {
        connections.push(destination);
    }
}

enum NodeState {
    Unknown;
    Known;
    Visited;
}

Topic: Game Programming / as3 how to draw a movieclip into a bitmap correctly

The bitmap’s x and y coordinates don’t affect the bitmap data’s draw() function. The bitmap data object doesn’t even have a reference to the bitmap, so there’s no way for it to access x and y. That’s why you have to pass in a matrix.

Topic: Game Programming / as3 how to draw a movieclip into a bitmap correctly

If the movie clip’s registration point was at the top left rather than the center, this would work as-is. Since it’s not, you have to use a matrix:

var matrix:Matrix = new Matrix();
matrix.translate(Mcuadro.width / 2, Mcuadro.height / 2);
bd1.draw(Mcuadro, matrix);

jlo34918: The Heir Dresser badge isn’t showing up on your profile. Make sure that you’re logged in to Little Alchemist, and that you beat four full areas, including Bridget.

choll133: You have the Heir Dresser badge, so as long as you’re logged in to Run, you’ll be able to use the Pastafarian.

Topic: Run Mobile / what should I do

First step: use your words. Dropping hints does not work. Tell him – in words – that you like him.

Second step: if he doesn’t respond in kind, then do your best to let it go. No one is obligated to like anyone else.

Third step: find somewhere else to ask questions like this.
