  2. New User! Some questions!

    Hi everyone! I'm a first time poster on this forum after having just come across it after a google search - just what I was looking for. I have a finance background but have been learning how to program (JavaScript) the past few months. I have an idea for a simple game that I really want to build. However, instead of learning Swift, I was thinking of building a native iOS app using something like PhoneGap or CoCoon. I don't even know if that's actually possible since I don't know what exactly they are but from what I've gathered, these programs will let you build a game in JavaScript and compile it into a native iOS app - which would be pretty cool! Can someone guide me to some resources on where I can get introduced to the world of making games using JavaScript for iOS (where I think the market for games really is)? Thank you - looking forward to contributing to this community!
  3. Hello, World!

    Hello html5 game devs! I'm a software engineer in between jobs right now looking to do some extra work on the side for cool projects. My background: I grew up in NJ, got a mathematics degree from Rutgers U and have been working as a flash developer for the past few years. I was sad to see actionscript 3 fall out of popularity because I just thought it was a really pretty-looking language. Over the years I've used it for desktop games, video players, real-time socket connection mmo games, starling mobile apps, database connections, spinning up servers, basic banner ads, 2d animations.. Anyway, I'm all about the javascript /typescript life now. Recently I've been really into Angular for building websites and browser "webapps" and phaser for games (or webapps that are less DOM-ish). I'm just an overall intelligent guy who loves talking about programming and building stuff. I'm really looking to join a group for a hackathon or gamejam in the NJ / NYC area, but I'd also be interested in working on open source projects. Thanks for reading. You can also find me tweeting about js things on twitter @WebWhizJim
  4. Loading Images

    Hi, I'm new to this whole phaser thing, and I looked around for an answer to my question, but here I am. Here is the github project that I am working on. In my main.js file, which I have in the root directory of the project, I load the images as follows: // Load the imagesfunction preload(){ game.load.image('background', 'TagJam18/images/Background.png') game.load.image('platform', 'TagJam18/images/Platform.png') game.load.image('Wall', 'TagJam18/images/Wall.png') // Sprite sizes are inconsistent so there is no way to do these with constants // The only real way is to resize the window sprite. // I definiitely do not feel like doing that. game.load.spritesheet('dog', 'images/DogSprite.png', 16, 8) game.load.spritesheet('window', 'images/WindowSprite.png', 16, 16)}Then in my create function I try to load my image. // Create the scenefunction create(){ // Physics is a perfectly fine way to do things for this. // The ARCADE engine has all the physics we need for a simple platformer game.physics.StartSystem(Phaser.Physics.ARCADE) // Add in the background. game.add.sprite(ORIGIN, ORIGIN, 'background')However, when I try to run my game, what I get is a black screen. Am I doing something wrong with my folder directories? I have all of my images in an image folder inside of the TagJam18 folder. I'm not very confident that I am referencing them correctly.
  5. Phaser Tutorial 2 with States

    So, I am trying to expand upon the "Making your first game" tutorial ( by creating states instead of running the game directly on the script tag in the html file. I have tried doing so by following the template provided, but I cannot answer must of the questions I have only by looking at it. I am also currently facing a bug that I would love some help in solving. The bug that I mentioned is freezing the game every time the player touches a star. The error I get is this one: Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'kill' of undefined Lvl1.js:155 Lvl1.js is the file where I have the state. Line 155 points to the collectStar function: collectStar: function(player, star){ // Removes the star from the screen; // <--This is line 155 // Add and update the score this.score += 10; this.scoreText.text = 'Score: ' + this.score;}collectStar is called when there is an overlap between the player and any member of the stars group (I believe) this.physics.arcade.overlap(this.player, this.stars, this.collectStar, null, this);Here I create and add the items to the stars group: var star = this.stars.create(i * 70, 0, 'star');That is all I have for the bug, now for the questions: I realized that I have to use "this" a lot, but I am still unsure as of why and when I have to use it. Do I use it when I reference items declared inside the state? Or with items inside the function? Why don't I have to include the parameters? (player, star) when calling collectStar? This was also the case in the tutorial, and there were no bugs there. How do I load items (sprites and whatnot) in one state, so that I can use it in another state? For example, loading items in the preload state to use in the game state. Thank you! *Edit You can find the current version of it here
