  1. Realtime winline effect

    Hi all, just after a bit of advice on how best to handle something like the realtime winlines below for a slot game... I currently have it working with PIXI Graphics line to based on the grid which works fine - but leaves little for styling. I've used the glow effect from PIXI-Filters, but that only seems to work on iOS and desktop (Android chrome on a Note 8 refuses to render the lines when the filter is enabled). In previous games I've used simple 9 sliced sprites rotated with different widths to join the sections - but not sure what other methods I could try out here? and which would be the best performance wise too? Thanks in advance!
  2. Free 2D Art For Your Games

    Hi all, Just wanted to share some of my art that never got used, hope someone finds it useful, you're allowed to use it in anyways you like, commercially or not, no credit is needed, but it is appreciated haha Just made a simple blog where you can download it - I'll be regularly updating with more art. Open to ideas/requests Cheers, Andrew
  3. Free Open Source Game Art App & Editor

    Greetings all - I've been working on an SVG editor and variations generator for some time, and I finally launched the beta this week - we have some really beautiful game art - over 500 of the CC0 pieces from, and 400 of the best Glitch game art pieces - and more. The editor has over 33,000 graphics including a bunch of icons and emojis - and right now I'm offering a free upgrade to pro for game developers - the upgrade URL is - with the code betauser I would love any feedback or suggestions about how to make this app BETTER for game developers! I am a long time flash dev who morphed to JS about 5 years ago, and spent a while working on my first all gamified app using Pixijs last year. I've tried to add ways to edit SVGs as painlessly as possible, as working in Illustrator for hours on end tends to make my hand hurt! But there are many fixes and upgrades I plan to make to the app, so please realize it's just a beta.
  4. Hello to everyone, I'm currently developing a fan-made, retro-style and non-profit game with Phaser based on the TV show Stranger Things. The main idea is to do a Point and Click game like old classics (Monkey Island saga, Indiana Jones and the fate of atlantis, etc...) with retro pixel-art graphics and chiptune music. I'm looking for GFX and Music artists If you are interested to collaborate with this project please contact with me and I'll send you a link to see the work in progress. (Sorry if there are some grammar errors, I'm Spanish).
  5. var graphics =; var color = 0xffff00; var thickness = 2; var alpha = 1; graphics.lineStyle(thickness, color, alpha); graphics.strokeRect(32, 32, 256, 256);
  6. Very new to Phaser and reading as much as I can before committing to using it as my game development system. My goal is to alternate views, a bit like VR, from one eye to the other. I have done this before by setting specific colours for backgrounds (x2) and Sprites (two colour versions). Person uses Red Green filters to limit view to each eye. In the past I have page flipped (RE screen drawn, then LE screen drawn) which I know is not needed in Phaser. I can just change background colour for each screen refresh which will do the job. But this introduces a potential new problem as I need to hide objects / sprites from each aye alternately as background colour changes. Am thinking I could alternate "visible" for sprites that I do not want seen in alternate cycles. Question is, will collisions be detected with an invisible object? Goal is to teach both eyes to work together but while playing a simple retro style game. Another option would be to redraw sprites to be hidden in the background colour. I saw this as an option in in the examples but don't know how resource intensive this will be. Only four colours can be used in the design process. Two for backgrounds, two for sprites. Each eye only responds to two colours. Does anyone know if this could work? A better workaround? Just thought about the depth positioning. I could place the ones to be hidden behind the background? Can I set two layers, one drawn for RE and the other for LE and then just move one forward and back as required? Thinking this might be easier to code as sprites will be children of each layer? Again will collisions be detected? Thanks
  7. Replacing a Graphics sprite

    I made a canvas class for a drawing app and set a white rectangle made with Graphics.drawRect() as its sprite, but I need to change its fill color when I click it. It seems that's not possible according to the few info I've found, so I want to draw another rectangle and change the container sprite but that's not working. Am I doing something wrong? How should I replace the sprite? game.createClass('Canvas', { init: function() { this.drawContainer = new game.Container(); var board = new game.Graphics(); board.visible = false; board.beginFill(0xFFFFFF); board.lineStyle(0); board.drawRect(0, game.system.height /3, game.system.width, 2 * game.system.height / 3 ); board.endFill(); this.sprite = fill; this.sprite = board; this.sprite.interactive = true; =; this.drawContainer.addChild(this.sprite); game.scene.stage.addChild(this.notebookContainer); }, click: function(event) { var board = new game.Graphics(); board.visible = false; board.beginFill(0xFF0000); board.lineStyle(0); board.drawRect(0, game.system.height /3, game.system.width, 2 * game.system.height / 3 ); board.endFill(); this.sprite = board; } });
  8. Tween on a circle

    So, I'm trying to create a pinging type effect in my game, basically I want a circle to show up in location, and get bigger. My issue is that as the circle gets bigger, so does the lineWidth of the circle (though, the actual line width value in phaser is remaining the same. circle =,100); circle.lineStyle(2, 0xffff00); var ping = circle.drawCircle(0, 0, 10); ping.anchor.set(0.5, 0.5); var circleTween = .to({height: 300, width: 300}, 1000, Phaser.Easing.Linear.None, true, 0, 0); Any thoughts as to how to keep the lineWidth an actual 2 pixels, rather than growing relative to the size of the circle?
  9. Hey guys, Recently I've noticed some strange behaviour while using blendModes on Phaser.Graphics. I am creating a flashlight by drawing dark rectangle and lighter calculated shape of light from flashlight, I draw that on Phaser.Graphics object. Then I apply this object as a texture to sprite to see the difference between rendered outcomes. this.shadowTexture = 0, 0 ); this.shadowTexture.blendMode = Phaser.blendModes.MULTIPLY; this.sprite = 200, 0, this.shadowTexture.generateTexture() ); this.sprite.blendMode = Phaser.blendModes.MULTIPLY; update(){ // draw on shadowTexture ... this.sprite.texture = this.shadowTexture.generateTexture(); // just for test purposes } this code results in such situation: As you can see, blendMode used in Phaser.Graphics resulted with darker flashlight and the one used in Phaser.Sprite in lighter. Am I getting this all totally wrong ? Or is this some kind of a bug ? What I would like to achieve is the effect that I get using Sprite just by using Phaser.Graphics. Please, help guys, I am a bit confused here Thanks
  10. I have a graphics issue that I cannot pinpoint. My sprite appears more blurry at some positions of the map. Does anyone have an idea what this kind of problem can depend on? Both of these pictures shows the sprite when idle on different positions - so no animation is playing - and at the first picture the sprite looks more clear than it does on the second one. I don't know what more information I can give on this that is relevant.
  11. Hi!, I’m a independent game programmer, and I have started a multiplayer RPG game, here a link to it: And a picture to see the style of the game (not pixel art): I have make all the code for the game, and the graphics and sounds are mainly from free assets and some help from an illustrator. What I’m looking for is help with the graphics and maps of the game, so if you already have some graphics of the style or want to collaborate to make the game please contact me!. Also you can see the main story of the game in the tutorial, if you like it and have ideas to improve it I will really appreciate it. Best, Nicolás.

Lately I'll need to animate those Graphics. Thanks for helping me.
  13. Hi I was wondering if there's a way in Pixi to map a texture to a graphics object. I would like to some warping on and distortion to images but the only way I can see this happening if I can map a texture to the graphics object. Thanks
  14. Hello. I managed to create code that draws a button along with a textfield and also with the four states that a button have, onInputUp, onInputDown, onInputOver and onInputOut. However, it is still experimental, and since I add text object as a child of Phaser.Graphics, the text is a bit blurry. But the bigger issue is, new graphical elements are added without removal, so I have a bug somewhere, or it is just not possbile to create dynamically drawn button with text and all states and to add custom click event handler. I will post another topic for the code itself, but here i just want to ask if there is a plugin for Phaser that draws buttons dynamically, or buttons on which I can change the text dynamically? Or how can I create button and be able to change its text dynamically? Should I just place Graphics object below and on top a text field both pointing to the same click listener?
  15. I'm trying to draw a graph incrementally, one line segment every second. I start with this: graphics =, 50); = graphics; ...and draw up the graph axes etc - all works fine. Then I set the line style, plot the first data point and then create a series of calls to nextData() - one per second: graphics.lineStyle(5, 0xff0000, 1); graphics.moveTo(xData[0], yData[0]);, 159, nextData, this); The nextData() function takes x and y coordinates from arrays according to a step variable that increments each time the function is called: function nextData() { graphics.lineTo(xData[step], yData[step]); step++; } However, nothing gets drawn. The data is all fine - all the values are correct and the function is called once a second and the step function increments as it should. The only thing I have noticed is that if I put in a REALLY small value for the time interval in like this:, 159, nextData, this); e.g. 1 instead of 1000, the first data point is drawn but nothing else - no lines, nothing. I tried this with Javascript setInterval() as well and it didn't work then either so I'm thinking it has something to do with the graphics?
  16. Hello. I am very new to PIXI, so please bare with me. I have been in search of good API for my game. The game uses a map which contains tiled images as well as a bunch of path on the screen. Think Google Map, except a lot simpler. I was able to use PIXI to implement the map background where it scrolls and loads tiled map images as needed. I was also able to draw paths onto the map. Now the problem is that I cannot figure out how to interact with those paths. I used PIXI.Graphics to create and draw a path. I applied mouse events to it. But no event is fired. I was able to get the even to fire if I made the graphic into closed path will fill. But unfortunately that will not work for my purpose. Is there any way to accomplish this? Any way to interact with just a path (could be complex paths with multiple segments and/or curves) rather than enclosing shape? Thanks in advance!
  17. this.bgGraphics.graphicsData[10].shape.width = this.btnScroll.x - 494; this.grp.graphicsData[0].shape.width = 100; - work perfect in CANVAS mode - does not work in auto (webgl) mode (width changed but not updated in game screen) please help!
  18. Free game assets available

    Hi everyone I'm currently running my own asset website where I post all my own work for developers such as yourselves to use in their games. The site's been going for over 18 months now and I've accumulated a good collection of assets already. The idea of the site is to produce useful assets at affordable prices. The site isn't just another asset store, it's kind of a personal thing and all the assets their are my own with the intention of maintaining a kind of continuity of style across all the assets I produce, although they have changed slightly over time as I've settled into a style. At the moment there is only one style of work on the site so I don't expect there to be something for everyone, but I'm trying to keep the art style universal and easy to replicate should people want to create their own assets that fit in with the style. I'd really love to hear your feed back on the site too. It is finished and fully operations but it's a work in progress and I'm continually improving it over time. I know a lot of indie developers produce games as a hobby without the expectation of turning a large profit from their work so I'm really trying to keep prices down. I also produce free assets which you can use freely in your commercial projects Which is partly why I'm writing this post, as I would like to share the free work I do with everyone who reads this and also generate interest in my asset collection. Here's the first free work I'd like to share with you all I'll post more stuff when it's completed. You can download the asset from the attachment to this post Here's a link to my asset collection website where you'll find more free assets: I've also included a preview image of the assets.
  19. I think I may have stumbled across a rendering bug that occurs when graphic objects are added as children to sprite objects. This code: let graphics =; graphics.lineStyle(2, 0x0000FF, 1); graphics.drawRect(0, 0, 32, 32); let sprite =, center.y); sprite.addChild(graphics);; Results in different dimensions for the sprite in (Safari / Firefox) and Chrome. Chrome reports the sprite's dimensions relative to the graphic object (32x32), however Safari and Firefox both incorrectly render the sprite's dimensions as (1x1) from a call to It causes my tetris pieces to render differently in both browsers. In Safari / Firefox, I am forced to set the rectangle to the dimensions of (1x1) and use the sprite's width and height properties to set the dimensions correctly. However, this breaks the sprite in Chrome. EDIT: It appears the offender is this property: "sprite.texture.frame.width". In Safari it's 1 and in Chrome it's 32.
  20. Can't clear mask in canvas

    Hi! I'm using a drawn rectangle as a mask and I need to delete it after a tween, so I'm using onComplete and then in the callback function 'this.mask.clear()'. Seems to work fine in WebGL, but testing in some browsers using canvas it seems the mask is still there after the animation (other stuff in the function is working, just clear() not working on the mask). Is there any workaround for this? Or any other way to get rid of a mask? Any help is appreciated, thank you.
  21. To start, lets create a Graphics object. const clip = new PIXI.Graphics(); clip.clear(); clip.beginFill(0xAAAAAB, 0.3); clip.lineStyle(0); clip.drawRect(0, 0, 80, 60); clip.endFill(); There are getBounds() method and getLocalBounds() method in the PIXI.Graphics class. I guess one of these two methods are used to get a Rectangle bounds from the Graphics object. But which one? Is it getLocalBounds()? I find this one to be the nearest answer. So now we can use the `contains` method of PIXI.Rectangle to test if a point is in that rectangle. What if my rectangle rotates to a certain angle? like: clip.rotation = randomFloat(-Math.PI, Math.PI); randomFloat(min, max) { return min + Math.random() * (max - min); } Does my rectangle's getLocalBounds returns the correct bounds that rotates a angle? Say I want to build something like a radar that can scan dots around it. I use a very long rectangle and its pivot point is in one end and the other end just spin around the pivot point. Does the rotating rectangle's clip.getLocalBounds().contains(x, y) detect the scanned dots as it rotates? One step further, if my Graphics object also moves with a camera, which means the pivot point and the starting (x,y) of the rectangle changes all the time, I can still use this method right?
  22. I make some PIXI.Graphics objects and put it on my stage, which contains a TilingSprite as background, then I scale my background and my Graphics objects. They look nice because they all scale to the same point. Then I put the PIXI.Graphics in Sprites and add the sprites onto my stage, scale them again. This time only the background scales. Sprites don't scale with the background. What happens? The Graphics and Sprites objects are at the same position. But they behave differently during scaling. I hope I use the right way to create sprites. My code: const array = new Array(COUNT); for (let i = 0; i < COUNT; i++) { const x = randomInt(50, 100); const y = randomInt(50, 100); array[i] = new Graphics(); array[i].beginFill(0xD48CFA); array[i].lineStyle(0); array[i].drawCircle(x, y, 10); array[i].endFill(); stage.addChild(array[i]); } for (let i = 0; i < COUNT; i++) { const x = randomInt(50, 100); const y = randomInt(50, 100); const g = new Graphics(); g.beginFill(0xD48CFA); g.lineStyle(0); g.drawCircle(10, 10, 10); g.endFill(); const rt = RenderTexture.create(g.width, g.height); renderer.render(g, rt); array[i] = Sprite.from(rt); array[i].anchor.set(0.5); array[i].position.set(x, y); stage.addChild(array[i]); }
  23. Ray, Beam and Lightning Effects

    Ahoy! For those of us who played games quite a bit (most of us, no doubt), we've seen plenty of (chain) lightning effects (example screenshot in the spoilers). Now, even though I've seen such effects plenty of times, I wouldn't know where to start to make such a thing. My question is: how would something like this be accomplished in PixiJS? I'd prefer a way without having to rely on WebGL, if at all possible, though, but WebGL-specific answers are welcome too, of course. Example screenshot (P.s. sorry if this image is hogging someone's bandwidth... I could not find a spoiler tag or something similar) -MikauSchekzen
  24. Hey, i created some circles with the PIXI.Graphics thingy, and added them to a container. When i now scale that container, the lines are becoming more thick. Im sure this is the best behavior in the most situations, but i would like them to stay allways with the same width. is this possible?
