Studio Time

Studio time is a room dedicated to those who just want to come out and have an place to work on their game. There are no lectures in this space, it’s simply a room for people to work on their own projects, collaborate with others and get one on one help with issues, ideas and publishing to Windows 8 and WP8.

Space is very limited, only register if you know you are going to be able to make it and if you have to cancel please update your status so others can take your spot. Also, if you have a specific project you are working on for Win8 or WP8 and can't get in email me and I will make space for you. I reserve 5 spots for people who need my help directly.

      I'd love to get your guys' take on Unity, as I think you were struggling with that choice between that and another framework. Where did you land on deciding how to proceed?

    ugh, I spent 2 weeks trying to get impact to work on my linux computer to finally format it and put windows 8 on it. When I finally get impact to work on windows (which is very easy) I found this online after the fact????

    Is there a reason why we didn't get this as a handout?

      Kareem -- I'm running ImpactJS on my Ubuntu (Mint actually) Linux laptop and my Debian 6 Linux server. Let me know if I can offer you any assistance getting it going if you want to give the LAMP stack another try with impactJS.

    I could not get Shoebox to generate the correct companion text file for packed texture (.png).
    I tried the default, CSS, Cocos2D, and Sparrow settings. Non of the companion text file look like the two packed texture .txt files in the ssrKit.

    Problem with impact addEventListener:

    I have several learning Impact project running and put away already.
    Once in a while the project I worked on will stop from reload/refresh. When this happen and I switch over to Wm, It will not complete loading.

    Now I am just completely shut down from impact for two days already. Any help is appreciated.

    I am running IE 10 under Windows 8 pro.

    Would Impact work better in Linux/Firefox?. I have Linux as VM.

    For srr the error is at ../js/resize-game.js. The webpage error shows the following:
    "Line: 1
    Error: Object doesn't support property or method 'addEventListener'"

    The MS console provided this message:
    "SCRIPT438: Object doesn't support property or method 'addEventListener'
    resize-game.js, line 1 character 1"
    for this module: window.addEventListener('resize',resizeGame, false);

    For the weltmeister or the original Impact template the error is at impact/impact.js ( expect screen to show the untitled wm template or "It works!")

      There is a mysterious non-entity in the elevator shaft just under third floor in the SSRkit.
      I turned on debug in Impact. It shows there is no entity in the shaft.
      The elevator on the way backup(modified) would slow to a craw just under floor3. When I walk the play in the third floor into the empty shaft. it does not fall. When I walk the player on the 4th floor into the shaft it falls to the same third floor position.
      The elevator can move pass floor 3 on the way down.
      If I don't get this resolved we can talk on July 10th. Any hint in the mean time is appreciated.

      Bring it in and I'll see what I can do to help. I have noticed the elevator is not very stable.

    Is the documentation for how to get started up loaded yet? I would really like to try to get it installed on my computer before the next meet up start.

      I'm using Ubuntu and I don't know how to get is loaded after installing Git, Nodejs and Gruntjs. When I go to install those apps most of them told me to update and they go through supposedly without any problems but I can't get anything else to work after that. I don't really have proper instructions so I don't know what to do next.

      June 30, 2013

    • Kareem S.

      Where do you get the instructions for installation?

    I downloaded CHrome in my WIN8 partition and ran Impact, my other completed game learning projects, and the older srrkit (up to what it was before). The new srrkit still dies with about the same message from IE 10. Both browsers are run against the same Apache.
    I am running WIN8 Pro without touch screen. Does the srrkit needs touch screen?

    Problem with new srrkit downloaded yesterday.
    This new version just hang in Win8/IE10. On the Linux(Cent6) side the console shows that ig is undefined in the first line of main.js. Does not make any sense to me.

    I have installed impact on my Linux side and zipped my working srrkit and moved over to work on the elevator. The impact test page and my working (old) ssrkit all started fine in my Linux side. So I can continue working the elevator. I am using the mover-trigger-bloker pardygm to change the elevator. Let me know this is not the intent of this project.

    Install impact in Linux did not take long, nor was there any issues. I forgot about Selinux security context and could not access impact in Apache. After fixing the security context everything worked.

    My impact and all projects that were running are dead as door nail in my Win8/IE10 side.

      I can't get anything to start on Linux do you have any steps on how to install and get it running on Linux?

      June 28, 2013

  • Kareem S.

    Is this really going to start at 10pm?

    June 28, 2013

  • Kareem S.

    I need help getting the installation to work on my Linux laptop.
