Just to let you know that I've uploaded a new Mac version (2020.11.16b) that fixes a crash in exported iOS apps if they try to make a network connection without having networking permissions.

does this update catch Classic up to Studio where, at a glance, i don't see mention above of the items from Studio 2020.07.28 that would also apply to Classic?

IE, i see no help for SetSpriteBlendModes() other than the tool tip (while Studio offers THIS).

Online help for SetSpriteTransparency() in Classic hasn't been updated to what Studio offers, either:


is SetSpriteBlendModes() a studio-only command?

SetSpriteBlendModes is a feature of the new renderer which would be more difficult to implement in the Classic renderer

Can GetHTTPFile be changed to allow for any file extension please? If you pass through a file extension that isn't known it downloads a 0kb file and crashes the app. Let's say we've created a PacMan type game called ZacMan and we're uploading levels to a server for users to download (using GetHTTPFile) then it would be nice to have our own extensions on those level files i.e. level100.zm. This becomes more important when users create levels and upload them to another location and share them to other users. It would look nicer if the file they were sharing ended with zm instead of say json, or txt etc.

I don't want it for sharing levels but seemed easier to talk about that seeing as AppGameKit is used mainly for games. I'm going to let users create content in the app which they can upload to different sites for other users to download and use.

I wonder if it's possible to offer a [concise] Dictionary definition within my word game? I have edited and proof-read my list of words used (all only 5 letters long) from the full 8000+ scrabble words list, down to 3500+ common usage words, and added a lot of proper nouns such as common names (eg Alice, David) countries (eg China, Ghana) and so on bringing my list up to 6112 words so far. My project is looking good, but my playtesters all complain there are words they have never heard of. I have explored open-source dictionary resources, but struggle to integrate them into my AppGameKit written games. It would be nice, and educational, to add a feature of click on the word, and a short definition appears. Any ideas anyone?
Edit: Found a possible solution, but it will not be as smooth as I imagined, though it will require no work at all, so most likely will be the way I go.
In AppGameKit the command OpenBrowser("https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=define%20water#cns=1") will do a "Google Define:" for water, opening it in a separate browser. SOLVED!

@ThePict - nice work. I wonder if there's some way to get the output of that page, instead of opening it in a browser. Then you could parse it for the info you need and display it as part of the game.

@Paul Johnston - are we ever going to see a functional "SaveObject()" command for AppGameKit Classic Tier 1?

Would it be possible to check the latest version available for download? I'm using AGKV2 on Mac and use the link to download version 2020.11.16c but when I open it, it says in the About section that it's version 2020.11.16b. I'm having problems creating an APK file (failed to save icon error) so hoping the "c" version might fix this?

Thanks,
John
