Create Flash, HTML5, iOS, Android, Mac, Windows and Linux games with no code with Stencyl. This is the source to Stencyl's Haxe-based game engine.

Requirements

  • Haxe 3.2.0
  • Stencyl 3.0 Stencyl's engine is written in Haxe, a language similar to ActionScript 3. You can edit Haxe directly from any text editor, or you can use something more complete such as FlashDevelop, Sublime Text, MonoDevelop or Eclipse.

Developing alongside Stencyl

To make changes to the Stencyl engine, simply edit the files in your Stencyl installation directory under plaf/haxe/lib/stencyl/1,00. You don't have to restart Stencyl for the changes to take effect.

If you have the engine files elsewhere (a fork of this repository, for example), you can direct haxelib to use that alternate copy (including when compiling from within Stencyl). Use the command haxelib dev stencyl [alternate stencyl-engine path] to set this, and later haxelib dev stencyl to revert to the Stencyl-installed engine. This could be useful to permit use of an engine version that's under active development without altering the original, installed copy.

Developing Standalone

For those who desire a more traditional workflow, the engine can be run standalone, outside of Stencyl.

To do this, run any of the following commands from within the checked out directory to run the engine by itself using a minimal test project. You do not need to run the build-stencyl script unless you wish to run a game within Stencyl.

haxelib run nme test TestProject.nmml flash -debug
haxelib run nme test TestProject.nmml ios -simulator
haxelib run nme test TestProject.nmml ios
haxelib run nme test TestProject.nmml android
haxelib run nme test TestProject.nmml windows
haxelib run nme test TestProject.nmml mac

To edit the data for the standalone test game, peek inside of Assets (contains the resource definitions, graphics, sounds) inside of Scripts.

Extensions

Extensions expose native mobile functionality to the Stencyl engine. Read this page for details.

Debugging

If you're running the engine standalone, viewing the engine's logs involves external apps.

  • For Flash, use Vizzy
  • For Windows, use XXXX?
  • For Mac, use OS X's Console app.
  • For iOS, use OS X's Console app. Also peek at the contents of ios-log.text.
  • For Android, use DDMS (Android Device Monitor).
