Flixel Power Tools

Monkey Forums/User Modules/Flixel Power Tools

I started to port Flixel Power Tools for Monkey.

The port is translated from Flixel Power Tools Version 1.9

Quite frankly flixel is awesome. It allows for very rapid game development. And while it does a lot for you, it is lacking in a few areas. After all it's just a framework, and frameworks are meant to be built-upon.

That is where the Flixel Power Tools come in. They are a set of classes, all neatly arranged in a single package that use the new plugin architecture of Flixel 2.5. They push flixel just that bit further and cover a lot of fundamental ground for you. The Flixel Power Tools are for Flixel 2.5+ only, they will not work with earlier versions.

Ported Classes

The following classes are available in the latest version:

FlxExtendedColor (FlxColor)
FlxControl (includes FlxControlHandler)
FlxGridOverlay (Overlay function not supported yet)

Monkey v63 or higher

Sounds great! I'll add this repo as a submodule to the main repo. Thanks!

This is awesome, i'm really glad someone is porting this since it'll be quite useful for Monkey Flixel!

Oh sweet! Please let there be up to two analog pads and optional a few buttons!

Looks like we're missing "basetypes.pointspring" from github.

KaaPex(Posted 2012) [#10]
Thanks. Fixed.

Neuro(Posted 2012) [#11]
Awesome thanks, will test some more later today :).

Neuro(Posted 2012) [#12]
Now missing the "flixel/plugin/photonstorm/data/onscreen_control_base.png" file. Or can we just use any old image for it?

KaaPex(Posted 2012) [#13]
This is the default files, I just uploaded them. You can use your own files to control.

SetOnScreenControlBase:Void(X:Float = 0, Y:Float = 0, simpleGraphic:String = "")

SetOnScreenControlKnob:Void(simpleGraphic:String = "")

I apologize for the inattention.
