    How do I keep the character from getting to close to the edges as they proceed through a (portrait formatted platformer game) scene - I need sort of a "margin" in my scenes so they are prevented form running to the edge blindly. They do stay on the platform but are partially off screen. I need a way to hold then back.

    Thanks for the feedback, I had a play and it did nothing... can you elaborate? What do you mean by "give it a play". I adjusted the game frame in and out but no results. Is there a setting that controls this distance or margin? Thank you in advance.

    That worked - the confusion came with the term... Other posts are referring to this same thing as a "game frame" yet others a "scroll frame" and yet others a "screen frame" -- the hovering tool tip labels it "Show Game Frame" - but for newbies, its the square icon with the circles in each corner - in the top-right corner of the start scene. It can only be activated and seen on the START scene as Francisco stated above. Thank you.

    No idea if it's possible, but I would love to see:

    How to change a character while playing (without using "pause", just by clicking a specific button or something);
    How to add an option to get, let's say, 10 lives for downloading/trying a specific game/app
    How to add daily/hourly rewards

    1. If you add "Character Selector" to your Gameplay UI, i think you can choose other character
    2. You can add a reward action and if your lives sistem is trough points or coins, but is no option to check if is install this app
    3. You can add Interval Reward ( 20% chance a reward button to show up )

    I'm sure I'm not posting this in the correct place, so apologies. I'm finally trying to punish my app on the iOS store. I need to create an app preview but I can't seem to export from Quicktime at 1080. Does anyone know why it won't allow this?

    I can't for the life of me figure out how to add different music for my worlds. There's easy options for adding music to the UI screens, but I want to add music to my levels, not my menus.

    Quick question here boxers :) - how can i set an animation to a character that takes damage. So lets say for example you set you character to have 2 health and a bullet does 1 damage. Is there anyway to show the character has taken damage instead of it just not killing character? Otherwise it's confusing for the gamer and will think its a glitch instead of the character surviving the shot. So either the character blinks, or animates for example so can see he took 1 health and then the second shot is the death animation. :)... thanks in advance !
