JavaScript:
pictureExists = function(filename) { // filename must include file extension.
    const fs = require ("fs");
    return fs.existsSync("./img/pictures" + filename);
};

See also here.

The code above works in the editor but after deploying my project, it always returns false. How do I make this work for both cases (on all platforms)?

maybe an "if statement"

if {!filename}
throw new error
else return true ?

that might be the most logic idea though, but idk the most efficient way.

Filename checking is not required because the ImageManager does this internally.
I need to check if the image exists on disk.

When deployed, the pictures folder is no longer one branch from the launcher but at /www/img/pictures/. You might wanna look at what I posted here, it works both in the editor and when deployed:
You can use the plugin or if you want copy the bit you need :')

Yay! Someone did a playthrough of my game. :D


When you thought you'd be finished with the grid, and spend ~8-9 hours on an arrow. How is this more difficult to than player movement?

Still some bugs hiding in there, but it's nearly complete.

I'm having it strictly follow the path a user draws, because there will be booby trap and other similar mechanics where you want to avoid specific cells.
I feel like banging my head against a wall every time I want to find that post that shows all the plugin header codes. Then I think "next time I find it, I'm going to bookmark it". Then I think "wait a minute ... maybe I bookmarked it last time because it took me so long to find it". Check bookmarks, and there it is :)
... a few of my main characters standing around doing nothing lol. I mostly wanted to see them together on screen.
