I'm making a stencyl game. But when I create my own custom actors, they aren't visible, yet they do damage and whatnot. They're invisible. How do I fix this? PM me if you can help. Thanks!

When adding in a character to your game, chose a color for the background to be transparent. For example, I make a green block(actor) and a gray background. I click on the gray background when adding the green block so the gray is transparent.
In simpler terms, try using a different color for the background. If you don't understand, I'll probably upload a picture or something.

Keep the Stencyl related stuff in the discussion thread in the Collab forum.

As Tom said in the opening post:
"You can share works in progress on dump or simply ask questions about things that are giving you a hard time - everyone can help each other."
