  1. Hello everyone, I'm currently doing some tests with the DynamicTexture system that could be used to add a new tutorial. The final goal is to have one picture on a plane. When I click on some button I will activate an animation managed by Babylon (if it's possible) so I can fade in and fade out the pictures. I had a first method where I wanted to add a canvas inside the canvas but that didn't work out : Now I have one texture fading in and fading out automatically : To be continued...
  2. Check out our new tutorial, Phaser Cars & Trucks with P2: We will cover constraining wheels to the truck body, increasing wheel grip, and creating a bouncy chassis effect that is seen in many popular games today. See what you will learn to create:
  3. Hello all, As some of you already knew it, I've been working on the a Babylon.js ebook for several months. Today, this book is finished, and I named it Learning Babylon.js. What is included in the book: - Getting started with Babylon.js (Hello world in 3D!) - Learn how to use primitives (box, spheres, torus,...), default cameras and lights - Detailed guide on materials and textures - Particles - Shadows - Collisions - Intersections - Physics engine (Oimo.js) - User inputs (keyboard/gamepad) - Animations - How to use exporters (3DSMax, Blender, Unity) - Shaders - Skeletons/bones - And more! The main goal of this book is to CREATE a whole game, chapter by chapter: start with the basics (cubes, spheres and torus), add materials, replace with custom 3D models exported from 3DSMax/Blender,... The game you will create is greatly inspired from the Super Monkey Ball serie. By the end of the book, you will have a complete game to play with, and (I hope!) enough knowledge to create your own. Sadly, I was not able to handle all Babylon.js features in this book alone (I would have spent a whole year on it, and DK is adding new features every day!), but I tried to cover as much as I can with one game. You can find some more information here :, as well as some screenshots of the book. I hope it will help you in your next Babylon.js projects. If you have any questions, remarks, I'm not far from this forum (as you know it:) )
  4. Hi, I've been working on multiplayer online experiences with Phaser, Node.js and recently. I thought that it might be interesting to make a tutorial detailing how to make a very basic multiplayer game with these tools, so here it is : How to make a multiplayer online game with Phaser, and Node.js . As I said, the game (which can be played here) is very very basic: you click on the small map and your character moves to where you clicked. The movements of the other players (if any) are displayed in real-time. No animations or collisions or whatever, the focus is on the networking aspect. Feedback is more than welcome, as this is my first tutorial ever. If you find it interesting and would like me to make follow-up tutorials on some aspects, don't hesitate to ask! Jérôme
  5. I've just started the first tutorial, following the instructions and am at the bit where you open part1.html. When I do that there is an error in line 17: Phaser is not defined, please fix or add /"global Phaser"/ If I ignore it and carry on with the rest of the tutorial, I get to the bit where you make the star appear in the upper-left-hand corner, but all I get is a little yellow box with "script 0px x 0px" in it, but minimising and maximising the browser makes the star appear instead.
  6. How To Make Games Without Coding (using Construct 2) You have a head full of game ideas and game mechanics, but your time is limited, or you lack the programming chops to create these ideas at a productive pace. You let Caleb show you how you can totally make awesome stuff with Construct 2. Once upon a time, Caleb was a game designer who relied on programmers to help make concepts become a reality. But discovering Construct 2 changed all that, empowering him to be able to develop ideas and games completely on his own! Caleb will show you how powerful Construct 2 is and how its HTML5 foundation allows you to reach nearly every platform out there. He will show you how to make a game from soup to nuts so you can go home and bring your ideas to life! Highlights: General layout of Construct 2 (navigation) Quickly get things moving / happening (touch, mouse, keyboard, joystick) Work with graphics and animations (sprites) Make things come to life without code (events) Quickly work with physics behaviors and more (behaviors) Explore the world of community created extensions (plug-ins) Understand the many ad, IAP and cross promotional plug-ins available (monetization) Cover all of the export/platform options available (app stores) Simple, but helpful tricks Caleb wish he knew when he was starting out (pro tips) Making a full game (assets provided) together ready to publish on your app store of choice. Some Tutorials to start your first game: How to make a Space Shooter : Build an RPG : Construct 2 Basics : How to Make a Platformer Game : How to Make a Car Parking Game :
  7. Hello All, I run the site, which among other things... contains tutorials and tutorial series on using a variety of languages and game engines. Just here to announce that I've recently started a BabylonJS Tutorial Series. All entries in the series have both text and video versions. As of right now the series is quite small consisting of: Series Introduction Getting Started Cameras There is also an introduction/review/overview I did a while back as part of the Closer Look game engine series. The next two tutorials on are on lighting and materials, and where we should continue on from there, how long depends entirely on popularity. I will at the very least cover all of the basics. Right now these tutorials should be suitable for someone with Javascript ability but no prior Babylon or game development experience. Of course feedback and suggestions are always appreciated! Hope these are useful to some of you.
  8. After getting some interest here, I started documenting the steps required to get my Phaser game on Steam: Part 1 - Greenlight Part 2 - Making it Look and Feel Like a PC Game Part 3 - Making an Executable Part 4 - Steamworks Original thread: Recently, my game Curvatron (made with Phaser) got greenlit on Steam, which means it will be available on that store soon. For what I gathered, there doesn't seem to be any other Phaser game on Steam right now, but I'm sure some of you are interested in doing this eventually. If there is any interest, I could document my steps toward getting the game there, including stuff like getting on Greenlight, getting greenlit, implementing the Steamworks API with stuff like achievements andleaderboards, etc. Would you be interested in this?
  9. Hello all This tutorial i wanted to publish for along time now . As i see that the indie IO games are building their servers in C++ .

But this time i'm showing you how to assemble WebSocket server using libuv (node.js C networking lib) for the server networking and libwebsocktes for the web-sockets layer. All server side is in simple pure C And for client side im using Cocos2d-x the HTML5 version . Enjoy ! P.S im planing to do the same tutorial using more flexible c++ 11. And later i will publish tutorial about connecting the server with mongoDB for persistence So please register to my news latter list to get updates .
  10. Hi there, I don't know if someone of you know this guy (Pedro Medeiro): He's creating very nice tutorials how to draw and animate pixel related graphics stuff. Amazing stuff inside! Regards, Christian
  11. I've followed , and now I am seeing the white fade-in when the game first loads, but it's loading directly to level 1 - the title screen doesn't load at all. No errors in the console. Demo at Code at Melon JS v3.1.0Mac OS 10.11.3Chrome Version 54.0.2840.98 (64-bit)

  13. Hello ! There is a free complete course by Victor Mallet. It is about how to create a basic FPS : It is in french but with a translator, you may understand :
  14. My post about control mechanisms in JavaScript games was just published on Mozilla Hacks blog. It introduces a series of MDN articles about Implementing game control mechanisms: Mobile touch controls Desktop mouse and keyboard controls Desktop gamepad controls Unconventional controls The basic examples are available on GitHub at And the articles are using Phaser-based game Captain Rogers: Battle at Andromeda demo as a case study.
  15. A GameMaker developer, Heartbeat (@uheartbeast) has created an amazing tutorial video on how to make a 3D dungeon using GameMaker. I thought I'd post it here so people are made aware of this. It really doesn't use a lot of code to make a rudimentary 3D world in GameMaker. On the subject of 3D games made with Gamemaker, there is a game made using GameMaker, Intrude, currently on Steam that is basically Doom using a more advanced version of the tutorial below. I'm no relation to any of these two developers, I don't know them nor am I getting money for posting their work or anything like that. Just saw something and thought it was cool enough to post here.
  16. Since my previous post I have been wondering on how I can map tiles myself within Phaser using the slopes plugin. If I wanted to include tiles such as "hills" or different sorts of slopes, are there any good tutorials out there that explains this? It would be very beneficial to the game I am creating. I am using 32x32 tiles with arcade physics. I've read in this file I downloaded about a "Arcade Slopes converter" which I'm unsure about. I've included the current tile sheet I created and using to test things out as well as the full code. Any help is appreciated! This is my current code for the mapping of my tiles.,{ 1: 'FULL', 2: 'FULL', 3: 'FULL', 4: 'FULL', 5: 'FULL', 6: 'FULL', 7: 'FULL', 8: 'FULL', 9: 'HALF_TOP', 10: 'FULL', 12: 'FULL', 13: 'HALF_BOTTOM_LEFT', 14: 'HALF_BOTTOM_RIGHT', 15: 'HALF_BOTTOM_LEFT', }); Test Game Phaser.rar
  17. Hi, I'm going to start working on a darts game soon and I'm looking for any helpful reference, source code or tutorial that can help me with ideas, techniques and shortcuts. In case you know anyone or anything that can help me please let me know. For some reason I can't find anything like that in the web. I guess this type of games is not so popular... Thanks!

  19. So yea, my internet was out yesterday and today... soooo I decided to go ahead and create my first written tutorial. Um I hope you like it? Comments, Concerns, Criticism?
  20. Hello there! I am new to this community. As I did find it a bit difficult to find good resources to code with Phaser in TypeScript I decided to "track" my experiences and write tutorials as I proceed. For those who are interested: You find the tutorials in my git wiki here. I hope this will help. Feedback is always welcome. Eric
  21. Hello! You probably know me from the free Phaser tutorials that I have made on Youtube Here is the newest one that I have published.

Here is the video that tells you a bit more about me Thank you all! <3
  22. SUMMARY: This post: HOW TO 2nd post: Original question that originated this post 3rd post: Research log concerning some problems and workarounds pertinent to this how-to THIS HOW-TO IS IN AN UNUSABLE STATE, AND HAS BEEN NOW ABANDONED. SORRY FOR THE NOISE. Okay, so after some hours of research here's what I came up with, in case anyone's interested or as a future reference for myself. These are the configuration steps to set up a Phaser project in Eclipse Mars.2 (4.5.2). I guess these might change from version to version, but remain essentially similar. You'll need to set up a local web server, but this is beyond the scope of these instructions. In my case I installed a WAMP (Windows-Apache-MySQL-PHP). 1. Head to and click on "clone". In my case this took me to: 2. Click on "Clone or download". A dialog unfolds with the git repository URL. Copy to clipboard. In my case it was: 3. Go to Eclipse and: Window->Perspective->Open perspective->Other->Git->Ok 4. Select to clone a Git repository. Paste in URI field->Next 5. Select All. Theoretically IIUC you should only need the "Master" branch. But I selected all just in case.->Next 6. It will want to clone in some default directory. It's okay like that, just copy the directory path to the clipboard for later.->Finish 7. Go tease you favorite pet/mate while the repository is cloning. 8. Window->Preferences->JavaScript->Include Path->User Libraries->New->Enter "Phaser" as the library name->Add folder->Paste in the "folder" field->Ok 9. Still in Preferences->General->Web Browser->Use external web browser->Select your html5 browser. In my case I left it at "Default system web browser", which is Chrome. 10. Still in Preferences->Server->Runtime Environments->Add->Basic->HTTP Server->Next->Enter your HTTP local server's web directory in the "Publishing Directory" field. In my case this was: "C:\wamp\www"->Finish->Ok 11. Window->Perspective->Open perspective->Other->Web->Ok 12. File->New->Static Web Project->Enter your project's name in the "Project name" field->Select HTTP Server in Target runtime->Finish 13. Right click on your project->Properties->JavaScript->Include Path->Libraries->Add a JavaScript Library->User Library->Select Phaser->Finish->Ok 14. Download or head to and look for the hello phaser example if the previous link didn't work->Unzip in a temporary folder and drag the contents to your project's "WebContent" folder in Eclipse.->Copy files->Ok 15. Right click on WebContent->Import->General->File System->Next->Browse to your git root directory\phaser\build->Select it->Ok->Check phaser.min.js->Finish->Overwrite?:Yes --- OR --- Use your system browser to open the aforementioned directory and drag phaser.min.js to your WebContent on Eclipse and overwrite. 16. Reformat your code from this: var game = new Phaser.Game(800, 600, Phaser.AUTO, '', { preload: preload, create: create, update: update, render: render }); function preload () { } function create () { } function update () { } function render () { } to this: var state = new Phaser.State(); state.preload=preload; state.create=create; state.update=update; state.render=render; var game = new Phaser.Game(800, 600, Phaser.AUTO, '', state); function preload () { } function create () { } function update () { } function render () { } (More info about this in 3rd post) 17. Right click on your project->Run As->1 Run on Server->Basic->HTTP Server->Next->You might need to change your HTTP Port if your server doesn't default to listening on port 80->Finish Your project should have opened in your browser. NOTE: 1. I have no idea if step 14 is correct, or whether you need to include other files in your project's web content directory. 2. If Content Assist (that's what's called the feature I was calling autocomplete) doesn't pop up, hit CTRL+Spacebar. It should work and display Phaser's API documentation. 3. For following new projects you just need to follow steps: 12 to 17, as long as you don't switch your workspace, of course. 4. I will edit this post to reflect changes if you point out any errors in the procedure, etc. Cheers, Eneko P.S.: Setting up IDEs is always a nightmare, isn't it? Unless you got some template...
  23. I'm making single n-back game What is best way to show user how to play? What hotkeys are used? Should I make screenshoots with additional labels/arrows to explain GUI or is there a better way?
