Hi:

I'm wondering whether anyone has something similar to these?

1)
A blinking sprite that tells players where to perform certain actions.

2)
A growing/shrinking circle that contains other icons in the middle.

BTW, how was 2) done?
I thought we can't stack events on top of each other?

I can't seem to figure out how this was done.

Thank you for your help. :)

the easiest way is to make a different circle sprite for each different object inside

The EDITOR can't place two events over each other.
you can place them at different positions in the editor, and then have one event move over another ingame. However that usually requires a lot of extra event handling, so it is rarely done that way - the solution with different sprites is much easier.

Thank you, Andar.
I have read many of your posts during my research. They are super helpful! :)

I've started the first steps of the final few maps that I need to make for B:ms. I haven't been able to say that in a really, really long time. It'd probably be a good idea to blog about this or something.
Question for the Mods: What am I supposed to do when I can't make a synopsis 350 words long? (for project recruitment thread) @Shaz @mlogan
The game is meant to be more on the simple side in order to be achievable so I'm a bit stuck...
