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! :)

Monday morning, and the sudden message: Hey, can you set up a full second lesson about pixel art till tomorrow?
No one:

I want to learn Javascript to create a custom menu, but I don't really know where to start.
One uncomfortable truth that has withstood the test of time, is how most people will stand by while they see a crime happening, unless it's illegal to stand by. We probably wouldn't have stories about "special heroes" or games about heroes if the "everyday common folk" were largely capable of being heroes. Heroes face dangers that most people are not willing to.
I'm having toooo much fun designing the new MP (Mental Psyche) system. I've only worked it out for enemies so far, but it's fun to stun them, then go after their MP and delete them instead to farm for better item drops.
