I actually had these fields as "Required" but I usually get slightly frustrated when for a given question doesn't make sense to full a required field, so I left it as optional. Thank you for the kind words!

Can I introduce GameCreator on blog?

ms11165 1 month ago in Other updated by Marti (Lead Developer) 1 month ago 1

Hello. I'm developing an adventure game using game creator.
I'm Japanese but I haven't seen many people using this asset yet.

Is It possible to introduce this asset on a blog (in Japanese)?

Is there anything that should not be posted at this time? For example, source code not included in documents that can only be seen after purchase, and internal structures related to it (of course)

Answer

Hi ms11165, of course you're free to blog about Game Creator :-) Let us know if you need any material, such as high resolution images or have any questions.

About if there are any limitations to what can be published, just use common sense. For example, don't post the entire source code, but if you need to showcase how to create an Action, you're free to do show an except of the IAction component.

If the post is very technical, you can go in detail, no problem for us. As long as you don't give away code that can be used as is in a project :-)

Cheers!

RPG Camera

Trevor 2 months ago in Other updated by Marti (Lead Developer) 2 months ago 1

I was wondering how I can set up an RPG camera to follow the player top down at an angle but there doesn't seem to be one in the camera motor option? 


I would have thought that would have been one of the main cameras to add if you had a click to move controller for the player. Is that going to be added in a later release? Or can anyone help me add this to the already existing camera motor?

Answer

Hi Trevor! The Top-Down camera perspective you're looking is called "Follow Camera" motor: https://docs.gamecreator.io/game-creator/game-creator/camera/camera-motors#follow-camera-motor.


As a summary, this motor accepts an anchor, which is the object that the camera tries to keep up with and a target, which is the object that the motor looks at. In both cases, the object should be set as the Player.


To make the top-down perspective, simply increase the Anchor's Y component so the camera follows the Player from an aerial point of view. Let us know if you have any problems setting this up :-)

[The Sword Skills] This is a question on how to make a special move involving particles.

kirikochan_nel 3 months ago in Other updated by Marti (Lead Developer) 3 months ago 4

I'm making a special move with reference to the GameCreator statsasset fireball.
When I create a fireball that includes a party system, I'm worried about the following error.
If anyone knows how to solve it, I would appreciate it if you could let me know.

The reason for the error was just that I was not linking the Animation Event.

Hey Rift. Happy to hear it's been fixed. Just in case any other user has the same issue, the problem was probably because you were using the Play Music Action, instead of the Play Sound.

There's a subtle difference between these two:

  • Music: Looped audio clips that start over and over again. There can only be one at a time
  • Sound: Audio clips that can be played simultaneously and don't start over once they finish.

How to Loop Background Audio Music using Empty Game Object/Trigger/Action

vincentsvaldez 3 months ago in Other updated by Marti (Lead Developer) 3 months ago 1

Answer
Marti (Lead Developer) 3 months ago

Hi Vincent. The "Play Music" Action specifically reproduces an audio clip and loops it when the clip is finished. On the other hand, the "Play Sound" Action plays an audio clip just once (like a shotgun sound, a character's voice, etc...)

Each of these audios can be group-controlled using different volume channels. For more information about audio Actions, see the following link: https://docs.gamecreator.io/game-creator/game-creator/actions#audio. Cheers!
