  1. I need help understanding how to use PixiJS through npm to run the example on the Docs Index page.
  2. I realize this is a tremendously dumb question but I've been struggling for months (intermittently) with just getting the files set up so I can start doing some Phaser tutorials. I've read and tried to follow the Get Started guide, but being new to development in general I'm having a really hard time understanding what they're asking me to do. Where I'm at: I have downloaded phaser and put it onto the hard drive of my computer, and unzipped it. I have installed the editor Brackets, which has a live preview that (I think - but am not sure) I can use instead of a local web browser. I have purchased a Phaser course from Udemy, originally created I think by Zenva, but it's not been especially helpful so far with this very first "set up" section. I have also completed a basic Javascript course provided by Kahn Academy (which was a great course btw), but since that was all in-browser, it didn't require all this setting up of editors and all that. The problem: I don't know where to put the downloaded phaser 3 folder on my computer, and in relation to the html file the tutorial wants me to create with Brackets. I don't know which part of the downloaded Phaser 3 folder I need to "put in" to Brackets in order for the files I'm creating to reference the Phaser framework. I do know how to open a folder in Brackets, but if there's a reference type connection I'm supposed to make, I don't know how to do that part. The getting started guide says something about finding the web root, which I don't understand, and can't find instructions about when I've tried googling it.
  3. Hi I'm a completely noob when it comes to Javascript and Phaser so I imagine my question is a pretty simple one. I've completed the 'make your first game' tutorial from the Phaser website. I wanted to have a mess about adding some extra elements to it as it suggests at the end of the tutorial. So I've successfully managed to add the 'baddie' sprite into the game and make it move right. However, for some reason it's showing all four frames of the sprite sheet rather than the ones allocated to the 'right' animation. Also I'm wanting it to move along the floor from right to left. So although I can get it to move right, I was wondering how to get it to move back to the left once it gets to the boarder of the screen and then do the same when it gets to the board of the left side of the screen. Here's my code for the animation. baddie = game.add.sprite(100, - 95, 'baddie'); game.physics.arcade.enable(baddie); baddie.body.gravity.y = 350; baddie.body.collideWorldBounds = true; baddie.animations.add('left', [0,1], 10, true); baddie.animations.add('right', [2, 3], 10, true); // The score scoreText = game.add.text(16, 16, 'score: 0', { fontSize: '32px', fill: '#000' }); // Our controls. cursors = game.input.keyboard.createCursorKeys(); }function update() { // Collide the player and the stars with the platforms game.physics.arcade.collide(player, platforms); game.physics.arcade.collide(baddie, platforms); game.physics.arcade.collide(stars, platforms); // Checks to see if the player overlaps with any of the stars, if he does call the collectStar function game.physics.arcade.overlap(player, stars, collectStar, null, this); // Reset the players velocity (movement) player.body.velocity.x = 0; if (cursors.left.isDown) { // Move to the left player.body.velocity.x = -150;'left'); } else if (cursors.right.isDown) { // Move to the right player.body.velocity.x = 150;'right'); } else { // Stand still player.animations.stop(); player.frame = 4; } // Allow the player to jump if they are touching the ground. if (cursors.up.isDown && player.body.touching.down) { player.body.velocity.y = -300; } baddie.body.velocity.x = 100;'right'); Thanks in advance.

  5. Hi there, I'm trying to get off the ground with creating my own phaser games, but I've hit a blocker that I just can't work out. I have a very basic setup, based on the Phaser Tutorial examples: index.htmljsphaser.min.jsassetsstarfield.pngThis is my very, very basic index.html code - but it falls over at the first hurdle when I try to access a game.physics method: <!doctype html><html> <head> <meta charset="UTF-8" /> <title>hello phaser!</title> <script type="text/javascript" src="js/phaser.min.js"></script> </head> <body> <script type="text/javascript"> window.onload = function() { var game = new Phaser.Game(1900, 1000, Phaser.AUTO, '', { preload: preload, create: create }); function preload () { game.load.image('starfield', 'assets/starfield.png'); } function create () { game.physics.startSystem(Phaser.Physics.ARCADE); // The scrolling starfield background starfield = game.add.tileSprite(0, 0, 1900, 1000, 'starfield'); } }; </script> </body></html>In Chrome I get the following error: Uncaught TypeError: Object #<Object> has no method 'enable' (index):48 create(index):48 d.StateManager.loadCompletephaser.min.js:4 d.Game.loadCompletephaser.min.js:5 d.SignalBinding.executephaser.min.js:4 d.Signal.dispatchphaser.min.js:4 dispatchphaser.min.js:4 d.Loader.nextFilephaser.min.js:10 d.Loader.fileCompletephaser.min.js:9 This is all running locally under Apache. I have tried a few other basic things, but whenever I try to access any Phaser object methods I get this same 'Uncaught TypeError' issue. I have phaser-examples set up locally, and these run just fine - as do the Phaser Tutorial examples. I have been trying to just build out from the tutorials to experiment and get to grips with everything. I assume it's a really dumb error, but I just can't see where I'm going wrong. Any tips would be gratefully accepted. Thanks, Stu
  6. Hello, I downloaded a copy of phaser and threw it in my MAMP folder - started my local web server. And then created a basic game.html file + game.js + phaser.js. game.html looks like this: <html> <head> <script src="phaser.js"></script> <script src="game.js"></script> </head> <body> <div id="game"></div> </body></html> game.js looks like this: var headImage;var game = new Phaser.Game(800, 600, Phaser.AUTO, 'phaser-example', { preload: preload, create: create, update: update });function preload() { game.load.image('head', 'head.png');}function create() {}function update() {}I opened in chrome, and am seeing a blank page with the following error in the console: "Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'style' of null" I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong.

A few additional links to things we discussed: Denki Word Quest running as a native android appDebris Dodger running on mobile from hub.turbulenz.comFeedback welcome! We're looking for feedback for the event, to gauge: If you found the content useful, would you like us to do another one in the future?What parts were most relevant to you?What would you like to know more about if we did a follow-up webcast? Please post suggestions for future topics and we'll see what we can do. Thanks! Ian
  8. Hi, I write blog articles about creating html5 games. In those articles I explained how to create a game step by step. My English skills are pretty bad so I can not translate articles myself. If you can speak French, feel free to translate and / or uses those articles as you wish. Create a Snake like with Crafty : Create a Platformer with ImpactJS : Create a Match3 with CreateJS : Thanks, Cyrille :-)
  9. Next week on Tuesday 21st May, Turbulenz will be running a live webcast introducing people to the Turbulenz Engine. Details of the event can be found in the news article: We will be streaming the event using Livestream here: If you have questions you would like us to cover during the Q&A, please send them to us ahead of time. There is a comment thread on the Livestream page so you can add them now. Thanks! Ian
