Very nice tutorials. I'm still waiting for the trial to finish downloading but reading through the basics gives me an idea how the thing works.

Hello,

I just have a little suggestion about the titles you choose for Tutorial XVIII, XIX and XX.

You choose 'Tips And Tricks' and it's a good name but you probably need to choose a sub name because I never remember it's what about.

For example:

Tutorial XVIII : Tips And Tricks - Adding A Reduced Image As A Material -

Tutorial XIX : Tips And Tricks - Auto Tiling -

...etc

So people will remember easier what is about, or where to find something they already read.

In fact, it's just a suggestion :)

Yeah I am struggling with getting the music to work right supposedly I rename the mp3's to wav and put them where? in a folder, root directory? I haven't clarified a few items like that if I could I will port Rofaxan to flash. Although it won't be nearly as good without sound atleast it can have the music.

1. I cannot find the Adobe Flex SDK. The screen the link took me to said nothing about Build 3.6.0.16995A or anything like that.

2. Do I really need to do the first two tutorials before making a game?

The platformer tutorial really gave me idea of how IGM works. Now I just need a tutorial explaining how to make an ation RPG and I'll be set! Well in the meantime I could dissect the sample action RPGs.

"This demon hunting game isn't any old walk in the park, let me tell you." Ruby said to one of her many summoned children and pat them on the head as they walked through the densely filled forest, almost in search of the demons themselves, of course, Ruby wouldn't tell you that as she is mainly a healer, but a pretty forum badge is tugging at her heart and while she doesn't like being in the middle of conflict, she has to save Arum. Her home. 

They heard a rustling in the trees and went on the defense. "I think it's coming," Her littlest friend said, softly. Ruby pushed him behind her and pulled out her staff as an almost giant dragon knight came stumbling through the forest, reeking of alcohol and pizza. 

"Ruby, remember, I'm not real. I'm just a summon, use me as necessary."

"Okay..." She hesitated but began throwing commands at him as quickly as possible to the already disoriented dragon. "Lightning, use all your hardest attacks first!" 

The little summoned creature went up in a tornado like motion of light and swirled around the monster in circles of clouds and lightning. He growled, and roared, and reared back, trying to smack the little guy away, but he was quick.

"I'm... starting to feel queasy, Ruby!" He stated suddenly. The smell of the alcohol/pizza combo was getting to him!! He had to take a short breather, and when he did the demon took notice and swatted him away like a measly fruit fly.

He lay, twitching on the ground, and rendered unusable.

Ruby scrambled for options...

-To be continued- 

*Although I don't know enough about IG Maker to post accordingly, sorry!*

Ruby reached into her pouch remembering the last 3 of her pokeballs and throws them at him, then rushes to her friends side in hopes that the damage from that will hold him off for a moment while the recuperate-

I use to hang out with dragons a lot and I can confirm that they aren't really suitable for IG Maker Tutorials, so why bother Dragon Knight?

Join me instead, you're out of place here.
 
*tosses 4 balls at Dragon Knight*


I'm on fire, but never on this scale!

3 new balls fell from the sky to her and she used one in hopes of capturing him finally with her friend Dalph.

not to kill the fun but this thread isn't reserved for random **** like this. lets try to keep things IG maker related cause is isn't a role play thread

EDIT: ok i read up on the event, but still, this person put a lot of time and effort on this tutorials, and personally i think its disrespectful. considering no really comments in this section. The comments should really be for praising the tutorials and stuff related to it. this is just my opinion on the subject. because this is an event, i assume that these comments will be deleted?

Thanks so much for the tutorials Kain. They've been very helpful! I ran into an issue with tutorial XI: The Basics of Menus, and was wondering if anyone might be able to assist as it seems like I'm probably missing something simple. The problem is simply that Stage 1 and 2 aren't loading when I select one of them in my menu. When selecting either option, I simply get a black screen. I suspect an issue with flow somewhere in there but I just can't figure this out. Any suggestions or assistance would be greatly appreciated!

Hopefully some more Tutorials will come soon--since I'm kind of a first timer, I might need all the help I can get!

unless the community writes them, I consider that very unlikely - and the community is rather small for IGM.
