  1. Don't worry, the UI is still very much not complete. We'll make sure there's a convenient on screen way to access all required features. Thanks very much for the feedback.
  2. Welcome Slomes! A trick you can use for idle animations to keep the feet totally still is to simply de-parent the feet from the leg bones before you begin animating that animation. Meaning when there is only the base key frame at zero in the time line, make the feet bones or feet images no longer a child of the leg bones... that way, when you move the body or legs, the feet stay put.
  3. I'm bringing this to Edgar's attention. Hopefully he can see the cause of the issue. In the meantime, you're potentially wasting a large amount of memory and performance by making your character at such a high res and then scaling it down in C3. You can create an entire clone of your project from Spriter to the reduced size, and then C3 won't have giant images to use to recreate your animations.
  4. This issue seems totally resolved. Make sure you're using the latest version of the Spriter plug-in, and the latest stable version of Construct 3, export your spriter project as scon, zip the images and scon only into a zip file with the exact same name as the scon file (but ending in .zip) and then drag in into the appropriate layout in your Construct project. This should properly update and replace the old one in your Construct project. If this doesnt work, please screen record your attempt so we can see what's going on.
  5. This doesn't seem like a Spriter issue, but something going on with the graphics programs you're using to create or convert the images. What program are you using to create the image, what settings are you using to save it, and what settings are you using in the conversion process?
  6. For some reason the images you tried to attach didn't work. Maybe the hierarchy column will update if you pick a differnt animation or even key frame and then go back to where you wanted to see/edit the hierarchy. Or maybe you're unware that the hierarchy can be different at any key frame(in regard to which objects exist or while are parents/children of which). The same is true for Z-order.
  7. I've reported the broken search box issue and let you know once it is resolved. In the meantime, please email any issue you might have to mike@brashmonkey.com so I can directly help wit hthe matter as quickly as possible. Sorry for the inconvenience.
  8. Can you link to a video or screen shot of the artifact? We need to see your export settings as well. Also, if you zip up your spriter project folder with all the images and the spriter file and email it to mike@brashmonkey.com I might be able to figure out the cause of the issue. You are using PNG images and not jpeg's right?
  9. No one else ever reported the program beginning to fail after installing either so fingers crossed that won't happen. if you've not used the Steam version for more than 2 hours you can refund it if you'd rather use the one from our store, just make sure to download and try the free one again to make sure it runs fine on your system now.
  10. I'm glad you got it working. I thought we had mentioned in our posts that you must uninstall newer versions of VS for the install of 2014 to work. Is there a post somewhere where we neglected to mention this important point? If so I'll make sure to update it to include that info.
  11. The only time I recall another customer having so much trouble getting Spriter to start, it turned out they were using an overzealous antivirus suite which was actually quietly preventing the required DLL to actually install when they were installing Visual Studio. I had them pause their anti-virus, install the 32 and 64 bit versions of VS and then Spriter started fine. Unfortunately I have no idea if this would help you in this case. Hopefully Edgar will have other ideas.
  12. I brought this post to Edgar's attention to see if he has any idea or if he knows what 0xc000007b is and how to fix it. Sorry for the inconvenience. This is a new error message for me. I don't think anyone has ever reported this before as far as I can recall.
  13. Interesting, we'll look into this. Thanks for the successions and all the feedback.
  14. Thanks very much for the concise feedback and requests. I'll discuss it with my team-mates, but keep in mind, even if we decided to focus on making such an expansion immediately, making art packs like these takes the better part of a year, so if it happens, it won' be very soon unfortunately.
  15. I assume you mean added customization options like other hair styles etc. No expansion is currently planned. Is there something specific you're after?
  16. You are very welcome. I'm happy I was able to help and sorry again for the inconvenience. Best of luck with all your endeavors and cheers.
  17. Sorry for the inconvenience. Have you tried the solutions for number one here yet?
  18. You are only supposed to use PNG image files. https://brashmonkey.com/spriter_manual/Spriter_Manual.pdf
  19. I think the problem is you and they are trying to add an audio file much longer than the duration of the animation into the timeline. Try increasing the duration of the animation to make room for the duration of the actual audio content before dragging it in, and also its likely a good idea to make it a not looping animation too, by clicking the little orange loop icon above the timeline.
  20. Glad you figured out the issue. Sorry I didn't reply soon enough to help.
  21. Sorry, there is no updated documentation. The best thing to do is examine any of the open source runtimes you can find here: https://brashmonkey.com/spriter-runtime-apis/
  22. 2.5 D is a huge undertaking. It's best done by creating a 3d model in a 3d program and pre-rendering the frames, at which point you could break it up into body parts and reassemble the frames in Spriter. The bones and other Spriter features are really geared to purely 2d based animation otherwise.
  23. I reported this to Edgar. He'll look into it soon. Sorry for the inconvenience.
  24. In the past most PC's already had this DLL installed, but some don't. The easiest solution is to install the free trial of the Adobe creative cloud, as this also installs the needed DLL file. The other option requires more careful steps: please read issue number 1 here:
