    Website Down

    Hi @enpu, I've just gone to download a plugin off the Panda 2 website it looks like it has an issue with the hosting provider. Could you take a look please? https://www.panda2.io

    A question about classes (trying to get more efficient)

    Good question @Ninjadoodle, I was wondering this yesterday!

    Panda / Javascript question :)

    In other languages I try and define anything upfront for clarity and also its useful if I want to comment things sometimes, doing the same in my baby steps in JS and Panda as well.

    Essentials Flash Question

    Can I just say how impressive your support is @enpu I mean it, fantastic to see. Love the fact the engine is open source as well, the two coupled together give massive confidence IMO. Sorry @Ninjadoodle, thread hijacking

    SystemText Class Bug?

    Awesome, when I get some time I'll put some effort into learning some Git basics. I'd like to help with the engine side of things where I can and understand it more also. Quick question in fact regarding the 'Text' class please and asset management when I get a little further forward. I see I can load *.fnt files, whats the preferred software to produce these files (and the matching atlas bitmaps of the font) please? I know in theory any software that handles the format should be ok but for now I'd like to keep with the 'path of least resistance' and go what you know is working great. Thanks as always.

    SystemText Class Bug?

    Hi @enpu I'm using the SystemText class to speed up some dev and came across a bug I think when I'm using the 'hires' feature of the engine. In my game config I have... game.config = { name: 'Slide', system: { width: 640, height: 960, scale: true, center: true, resize: false, hidpi: true, hires: 4 }, scene: { backgroundColor: '#ffffff' }, mobile: { system: { resize: true } } }; ...so 'hires' is set to four. When I test on my phone its fine, hires scale is 1 which I can see in the debug panel, everything looks fine. I test on my iPad and the hires scale ups to 2, which is great, sprites look good still BUT font size of the SystemText jumps a size. So I had a little dig in the engine sourcecode (I'm using 2.7.1dev) in the '/engine/renderer/text.js' file I see this line in the SystemText class (line 483): context.font = this.size * game.scale * game.scale + 'px ' + this.font; ...I changed it to... context.font = this.size * game.scale + 'px ' + this.font; ...and it seems to render better (removed the duplicate scaling). If you could confirm this is ok please and if so roll into the GitHub engine that would be great please. I really need to learn how to perform pull requests lol

    Xbox Panda Remote

    Hi @enpu Thats right, I can't get back to the connection screen. I've tried the A + X + LT + RT cpmbo with no joy on a few different projects. I don't know if it help but the UWP cursor pops up straight away on every project I've tried and doesn't look like it should be there maybe? Pete

    A little game making inspiration

    These are fantastic, thanks again! The first little game I'm working on is just two circles mainly. I'm also terrible at doing any art, but as these games show its not always needed. Just like you @Ninjadoodle my aim is to just make something, anything for the moment is what I'm thinking, fail forward! Repeat, repeat, repeat, improve, improve, improve

    Hypothetical Question

    Hypothetical Question

    @Ninjadoodle Definitely the same story here. Spent faaaarrrrrrrrr too much time overthinking and looking for a one size fits all type solution I can 'really learn'. I love the web and Panda 2 makes life very easy to start that journey, time to get some things completed. I'm sure there's awful games going to be coming from me, bit embarrassed about that but need to learn and get stuff out there.

    Xbox Panda Remote

    Hi @enpu Had a try at the button combo @Ninjadoodle spotted for me and I still can't seem to get back to the IP selection / connection screen. What I see is the UWP mouse pointer and my view in zooming and scaling (when I press the combo). I can sometimes see some scrollbars appearing as well. I think these are from the web view you are wrapping things in? Any ideas? Not urgent at all, just wanted to see how it worked right now Pete
