I have just run the project with debug on and a score value is reset after each level. It's crazy, the project is Shapes - Mindorama and I am just adding a Last Score and Last Level Played. I'll try and knock up something with the Fartoids GameMaker Project and anyone can have a prod around with it ! :)

Thanks for the pointers, watch this thread ! ;)

Is lasthighsc global also?

Can you give any more addition info?
What language, code snippets, etc

I am basically using GameMaker, but using its GML ( GameMaker Language ). Similar to C++ in a little way. But a variable is a variable, so it should be similar in most languages.

lasthighsc is global. I need to copy or remember the high score, if the last score is equal to or greater, then it will be replaced. Sorry if it sounds a bit confusing. Perhaps the lasthighsc is being reset somewhere ?

Hi ! :)

I have a score variable that equals to a lastscore variable ( global ).

score = 12345
lastscore = score

This works fine, however I am trying to add the lastscore to a lasthighsc variable and this figure is being forgotten once the game is replayed. Surely, storing lasthighsc variable shouldn't clear itself ?

Another great event, as per usual. Mary and I enjoyed ourselves. Perhaps we should have played 'Chuckie Egg' a few more times ? ;)

Looking forward to the May event ! ;)

Almost there ! ;)

Mary and I as well ! :)

Hi ! :)

I am working on an Android game for RCM, which I am hoping to finish soon. The game has been designed on GameMaker:Studio ( beta ) which allows any project to be exported to PC, HTML5, C++, iOS and Android. The game will be initially available on PC, HTML5 and Android. Each export module for GameMaker:Studio is $200. On it release ( hopefully very soon ), I will have access to the PC, HTML5 and Android export features.

So for the time being, here is a video teaser of what I have so far ...

For those that have noticed the RCM Logo in the background has the www address taken out, its not deliberate, just a cosmetic design for the backdrop. The website and plenty other RCM promo goodness will flow from this mini-game once completed.

Also ... Would anyone like to do some Music and Sound Effects for this game ? MP3 for music and Wav for Sound Effects ?

Thanks, Alex. :)

This sounds like an interesting challenge ! I would need to pimp up the RAM first, as the Netbook only has 512 RAM ! :(

Hi ! :)

I am looking for an Apple Mac Laptop for myself that could potentially be used in conjunction with GameMaker:Studio by YoYoGames.

It must be able to run with the following specs :

Intel Mac, running Mac OS Leopard v10.5 or Snow Leopard v10.6.

Being a novice with Apple Macs, what is the best price for a second hand one or ( brave question ) has anyone got one I can borrow longterm ?

Also, would a spec like this on eBay be suitable ?

Many thanks,

Alex. :)

Fear not ... Pressing it, in a loving, massaging way has brought it back to life ! Phew ! ;)

Hi !

My Atari 800 XL has developed a problem with one of the keys ... 'L'.

All the other keys work, not sure why it has suddenly stopped working.

Any ideas ?

Many thanks,

Alex. :)

If you would like to try Alien Breakout again, it should work. IE 9, Firefox 7 and Chrome. Plus, it does work out Apple and Android device ! ;)
