    Hello Everyone!

    I am new to buildbox, and I am trying to design my game. I am Ui Designer, so basically I don't have an idea about logic / code, but I am able to make a nice game :)

    So.. There are few things I struggle with... I hope you can help me :) ?

    01. I am doing similar game like flappy bird - Can you please tell me is there anyway when u "Start" a game, it will instantly "Pause" it and on your click you actually start playing?

    02. I have coins in my game that you collect, I want them to float (up down only few pixels) How can I do that :( ?

    03. Here https://gifyu.com/image/lewA you can see Image of my spikes "Collision Shape" Is there anyway that collision shape is not rectangular and I can adjust it to exact shape of "Spikes" ?

    Thanks for your help :)

    Is this BB2 or 3?It looks like 2.
    1 - yes, using the event observers and using a pause with a UI menu
    2 - Yes, using the logic pieces so when coin touches the top one, it moves down, then the bottom up, it moves up. You will need to adjust the speed etc.
    3 - Not worth doing that. The majority of games do collisions in 2d the same way, actually have it a little shorter from the end spikes, to be a bit more forgiving. Otherwise, too many collision shapes, takes up processing power and slows the game down

    If it's bb3, for number 2 you could just use a wave node

    I think I am too stupid for this :D
    In relation to "1"
    https://imgur.com/jqHHiVR - This is my map and Observe Event attached.
    https://imgur.com/YuwbgYV - This is Main UI screen where the event is located - You click play and the game should be instantly paused, but its not working :(

    What am I doing wrong? :D

    Also 02 Killed my brain, not too sure where can i find Logic pieces :D
    https://imgur.com/oPMJmgw - Pretty sure I dont have "Logic Pieces"?

    Ok so looking at your screenshots you seem to be using buildbox 3.0. In BB3 they removed logic pieces but you can use the node called "wave" to make the coin float up and down.
