Groups are a real "production" functionnality for XIA.
do you mean that groups cause XIA a lot of extra work? Or if not, can you explain a little more about ""production" functionality"?
For the gameDragAndDrop only : For this specific theme, XIA 1.0 does not accept svg groups.
What do you mean by "theme"?
Now, let's see what we can do to make your game working properly.
If you can tell me what I did wrong, and give me the info I need to fix it, I will be able to learn better, than if you fix it for me. Although if writing SVG/XML, or a lot of work in the XML Editor is required, you might have to do it.
Oh yes, I use layers prolifically, and often groups too. So I really need to start all over. Either I need to ungroup everything, and put all in the same layer, OR, make a bitmap copy of the whole thing, before I start clipping. I almost did that (the latter), when I first started. But then I realized there would be 2 conversions, which would somewhat degrade (pixelate) the image, because it would be "rasterized" twice.
Hhmmm.....wait a second..... If the pieces have all been rasterized, there are no longer any groups. Ooohh, except for the layers. So if I put the background image, targets, and rasterized pieces all in the same layer, will that be good enough? Can I leave the other layers I have in the file, as they are? Or does absolutely everything
need to be on the same layer, whether it will be used by XIA or not?
Ssoooo.... Since you're still looking for a problem, I guess that means that XIA can handle groups/layers, but just not very well. Could I go ahead and start working on that? Or should I wait until you find some other issue?
Well what about the first layer? It's in there by default. Is that a group? Or is Layer 1 unique, and not a group. Maybe XIA can have a feature that will put everything in the root layer? I don't know any way to move things to the root layer. It seems to happen with some extensions, that the result is placed in the root layer. But how to move something there from the canvas, I don't think it's possible. Maybe using XML Editor though? Although I don't know. Maybe the root layer is also a group???
You know, when I did the clipping, I clipped across groups, and often across a few different groups in 1 clipping path! Also clipped across different clips! But I still keep coming back to the fact the pieces were all rasterized by the time I sent the file to XIA.
Well, I'm rambling now. I guess I'll save a new copy, and start de-group-izing the new file. Then I can also delete the "clips" layer, and all those things I don't need. Possibly could unclip some things -- the clips that make the image border sharp, because the clipping of the pieces will take care of those areas. It sounds like the complexity of the file could be contributing factor to the problem, and making it a simpler file might help?
Anyway, thanks. I'll be interested to learn what you find in my file
