One of the nice things about Tumult Hype is the ability to customize my work. Instead of waiting for Hype 4.0, or whatever the next major version is called, I can simply create my own features. As an example, what if Hype had built-in Multilingual support? Instead of creating multiple scenes or multiple projects, wouldn’t it be nice to have just one layout? Well, you can. That’s what this week’s template is all about. It shows how to manage multiple languages from a single location in a Hype project – or an HTML5 project in general.
The previous FPS project used a significant amount of CPU power. On my Mac mini, approximately 12.5% CPU power was used for the FPS gauge and text display. That drain on the processor significantly skews the performance numbers. The original project was intentionally left flawed and unfinished. The idea was to encourage Hype users to improve their programming skills. But since no one seems to have taken on the challenge, I decided to improve the template by myself.
While perusing the Tumult Forums, someone was having trouble with animated buttons. The idea was to animate the active button, then return to the previous state when not active. Hype can do that! To show how that’s done, I started working on another free Hype template. The end result is a project that grew larger than expected. If you’re looking for a way to create quizzes, the “United States Capitals Quiz” template could be a great starting point. It tackles complex issues, such as working with arrays and randomizing the display of that data.
