Running into trouble making my first game

Recommended Posts

Hello! I'm a total beginner (both with this forum, and Phaser), so please forgive me for any mistakes. :wacko:
I am trying to combine two examples I found on the phaser.io website. This one, and this one. I want to pause the game when pressing the 'pause' button. 

I'm getting the error "Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'onInputUp' of undefined" in the console. 

I'm using Phaser 3.2.0, and I understand that the examples I found are from an earlier version, so maybe that's why it's not working? Please help!

This is my code: 

var config = {
    type: Phaser.AUTO,
    width: 800,
    height: 600,
    parent: 'game_2',
    physics: {
        default: 'arcade',
        arcade: {
            gravity: { y: 300 },
            debug: false
        }
    },
    scene: {
        preload: preload,
        create: create,
        update: update
    }
};

var player;
var stars;
var bombs;
var platforms;
var cursors;
var score = 0;
var gameOver = false;
var scoreText;

var game = new Phaser.Game(config);

function preload (){
    this.load.image('sky', 'game_2/assets/sky.png');
    this.load.image('ground', 'game_2/assets/platform.png');
    this.load.image('star', 'game_2/assets/star.png');
    this.load.image('bomb', 'game_2/assets/bomb.png');
    this.load.spritesheet('dude', 'game_2/assets/dude.png', { frameWidth: 32, frameHeight: 48 });
}

function create (){
    //  A simple background for our game
    this.add.image(400, 300, 'sky');

    //  The platforms group contains the ground and the 2 ledges we can jump on
    platforms = this.physics.add.staticGroup();

    //  Here we create the ground.
    //  Scale it to fit the width of the game (the original sprite is 400x32 in size)
    platforms.create(400, 568, 'ground').setScale(2).refreshBody();

    //  Now let's create some ledges
    platforms.create(600, 400, 'ground');
    platforms.create(50, 250, 'ground');
    platforms.create(750, 220, 'ground');

    // The player and its settings
    player = this.physics.add.sprite(100, 450, 'dude');

    //  Player physics properties. Give the little guy a slight bounce.
    player.setBounce(0.1);
    player.setCollideWorldBounds(true);

    //  Our player animations, turning, walking left and walking right.
    this.anims.create({
        key: 'left',
        frames: this.anims.generateFrameNumbers('dude', { start: 0, end: 3 }),
        frameRate: 10,
        repeat: -1
    });

    this.anims.create({
        key: 'turn',
        frames: [ { key: 'dude', frame: 4 } ],
        frameRate: 20
    });

    this.anims.create({
        key: 'right',
        frames: this.anims.generateFrameNumbers('dude', { start: 5, end: 8 }),
        frameRate: 10,
        repeat: -1
    });

    //  Input Events
    cursors = this.input.keyboard.createCursorKeys();

    //  Some stars to collect, 12 in total, evenly spaced 70 pixels apart along the x axis
    stars = this.physics.add.group({
        key: 'star',
        repeat: 11,
        setXY: { x: 12, y: 0, stepX: 70 }
    });

    stars.children.iterate(function (child) {

        //  Give each star a slightly different bounce
        child.setBounceY(Phaser.Math.FloatBetween(0.4, 0.8));

    });

    bombs = this.physics.add.group();

    //  The score
    scoreText = this.add.text(16, 16, 'score: 0', { font: '24px Arial', fill: '#fff' });

    //  Collide the player and the stars with the platforms
    this.physics.add.collider(player, platforms);
    this.physics.add.collider(stars, platforms);
    this.physics.add.collider(bombs, platforms);

    //  Checks to see if the player overlaps with any of the stars, if he does call the collectStar function
    this.physics.add.overlap(player, stars, collectStar, null, this);
    this.physics.add.collider(player, bombs, hitBomb, null, this);
    
    
    
    
    /*
        Code for the pause menu
    */
    var w = 800;
    var h = 600;
    // Create a label to use as a button
    pause_label = this.add.text(w - 100, 20, 'Pause', { font: '24px Arial', fill: '#fff' });
    pause_label.inputEnabled = true;
    pause_label.events.onInputUp.add(function () {
        // When the pause button is pressed, we pause the game

        // Then add the menu
        menu = game.add.sprite(w/2, h/2, 'menu');
        menu.anchor.setTo(0.5, 0.5);

        // And a label to illustrate which menu item was chosen

        choiceLabel.anchor.setTo(0.5, 0.5);

Thank you so much! I think I got it, kinda. 

I'm getting another error now. "Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'sprite' of undefined" for the row that starts with menu = ... . I'm not sure why but I can't seem to access the game variable. 

    // Create a label to use as a button
    pause_label = this.add.text(w - 100, 20, 'Pause', { font: '24px Arial', fill: '#fff' });
    pause_label.setInteractive();
    pause_label.on('pointerup', function(event) {
        // When the pause button is pressed, we pause the game
        game.paused = true;

        // Then add the menu
        menu = game.add.sprite(w/2, h/2, 'menu');
        menu.anchor.setTo(0.5, 0.5);

        // And a label to illustrate which menu item was chosen
        choiceLabel = game.add.text(w/2, h-150, 'Click outside menu to continue', { font: '30px Arial', fill: '#fff' });
        choiceLabel.anchor.setTo(0.5, 0.5);
    });


Also, how do I add the .add(unpause, self) part in this? (again, game.on doesn't seem to work. It's giving me a similar error to the one above)

    // Add a input listener that can help us return from being paused
    // game.input.onDown.add(unpause, self);
    game.on('pointerdown', function unpause(event) {});

20 hours ago, PixelPicoSean said:

Game instance should not be used for creating objects and input event handling, use the scene instead.


// Create objects from a method of scene
this.add.sprite(...)

// Subscribe to input events of a scene
this.input.on('pointerdown', function(event) {}, this)

 

I'm sorry, I don't understand how or where to use this in my code :wacko:
