Internet conection lost

Haha thanks I always try to help other people when I can. And don’t forget if you want to please post the game on the forum :wink:

It’s not a short story :smiley:
I`m porting the game from my student, he did it in ClickTeam Fusion. So now I kind of demaking it, respriting everything from nothing, etc. For now its only half of (interactable) menu with some rooms done only.
It may be something good. But it also will be something big.
I will publish first demo after 1st level will be completed.

is it some way or workaround to paste image from computer?

If you have a proper “Arcade image” in your clipboard and have the art editor open you can use Ctrl + P to paste.

Wait, how it suppose to be?

Ctrl+p do nothing (in offline app) or calls Print Menu (in Chrome)

Oh sorry I meant V :man_facepalming:

I tried but it doesn`t work.
What do you mean by “a proper “Arcade image””
Well, I imported project to chrome. From Chrome, I saved img by “save as” in context menu. It downloads 32-bit bmp file.
Is it correct image?
So I opened it in… Paint.Net. Copied.
Opened the image editor in App. Used ctrl+v.
Nothing happens

You don’t save it as a standard image. You know how Arcade represents images like:

When you copy an image to the clipboard in Arcade, what get sent to the clipboard is a “text image” like above. When you do a Ctrl + V (huh I wonder which idiot said it was P) Arcade is looking for this “text image.”

Consider the following gif:

You can see the keystrokes I press at the bottom, albeit they are quite small.

Sorry for missunderstanding. This is not a problem. I asked out of topic context.
I mean if I have an IMAGE) on PC for example - background 160x120 in jpg or png, can I paste it to editor?
Or even if I will recode it to 4-bit bmp. Can I copy it from graphic editor on PC directly to make code editor?

Yes there are tools!

Ah no, you can’t. You must use a tool like this and this to convert an image file like a .png or a .jpg to a “Arcade image.”


SHAMELESS SELF PROMOTION: I have a list of Arcade extensions and tools (scroll to the bottom) here.

Awesome! This is works great.
Actually, I want to make game without coding, but also I’m to lazy to redrawing cutscene`s fullscreen frames. So I guess i can neglect this moment and use javascript for this images only :smiley:
Thank you.

Maybe same things for playing music? (import from pc)

Note, if you press ctrl v this will add it in the art editor.

Well, you can play RTTTL strings - there is an extension listed in there somewhere :wink:
And there are many MIDI to RTTTL converters online as well. Many score editing programs can also export to MIDI.

Note that you are limited to “retro Arcade-style” bleeps and bloops piano which is kinda harsh and loud. You are also limited to only 5 notes playing at a time.

Can you point me to a midi to rtttl converter? I can’t find any…

I’ve used this one a lot, works well for simple melodies.

Also isn’t it 4 tones?

No, it’s 5. Read this thread:

Guys, still you`re here.
Can you maybe help me with Can't compile app ?
