So I am using the sub app object to make a custom pause engine. When you hit a key, the object is created and calls the pause application, which is separate from the main one. But when the sub app is created...it doesn't center the screen, it's created on the upper corner of the screen. And I've done the whole create at such coordinates from object and whatnot, but it refuses to be centered to the screen. Any ideas on how this could be fixed?

Also another problem I am having with my animated counters. They are not showing up. They're there but they don't show up. I don't know if there's a conflict of some sort with the backdrop system object or something, i got it working once, but for no reason, they just disappeared again... Anyone else ran through this problem as well?

Thanks in advance...

Renatos

I'm not sure if this is what you are looking for when you talk about centering the subapp, but take a look at this example which appeared on the CT forums today (coincidence? )
http://www.clickteam.com/CTforum/showflat.php3?Cat=&Board=upload&Number=297559&page=0&view=collapsed&sb=5&o=&part=

As for the counters I think it could be a problem with maximum and minimum values. Go to the properties of it, set the min value to 0, the max to 3 and the initial to 2 and see if it shows up.

Assault Andy..haha that's me as well, in the CT forums in search for an answer... Someone did that example, but when I add scrolling it seems to stop working, i'll look into it more later...

the second problem, my counter has always been.. maximun 10, minumun 0, starts at 10... so I don't know what's up

I had the same counter problem before, and by doing what Andy says, that should fix it Newt. I had neglected to put in the counter's parameters and the pictures didn't show up like they should have. The min / max values should fix it right up.

I did it, and it still does not appear...I've noticed if I check the Follow the frame so it will not scroll with the character that it appears, it's an issue with the scrolling.

Hmm... you might try having it always set its X position to its X position. It seems a little redundant, but sometimes it just takes the fact that it's moving (kinda) to keep it redrawing itself.

Oh, and you don't have "Display as background" checked, do you?

Yea that works...but it kinda sucks because the object kinda moves back and forth when you scroll.. but i guess it will do for now until there's another solution.

I found a bug a few weeks ago, maybe you're being affected by it. Take a look at all of your background objects and make sure they don't have borders, if you scroll the screen to certain places and have background objects with borders, then all strings and counters disappear.
