few questions
Hello, the first time I used alice was when I was in the middle school. The program was like foreign and i couldnt understand it so i always asked my teacher a few questions. Its been a few years back. Now I downloaded alice on my family computer and I dont really remember what to do and theres still some things im wondering about. So here are my questions;

Custom Items into Alice 2.2 -
I downloaded a few objects that I found on the forums and went to file, import and then clicked on the .a2w file and i get a pop up that says "No importer found to load file given type". How can i get past this?

Solid objects? -
Im also wondering if its possible since im making a FPS game. To make all objects solid. So I cannot walk through them when I am testing. Which ruins overall gameplay.

[SIZE="2"]1. Refer to [URL=""][U][B][SIZE="2"]this.[/SIZE][/B][/U][/URL]
Additionally, you can even [URL=""][U][B][SIZE="2"]have Alice load your custom objects in the local gallery.[/SIZE][/B][/U][/URL]

2. The only built-in collision Alice has is the "Let Arrow Keys Move *object*," and that only works when moving forward. There are plenty of posts dealing with collision detection examples that you can search on the forums (like [URL=""][SIZE="2"][U][B]here[/B][/U][/SIZE][/URL] and [URL=""][SIZE="2"][U][B]here[/B][/U][/SIZE][/URL]), but each one has its strengths and weaknesses.[/SIZE]

[SIZE="2"]Oops! I incorrectly answered your first question.

.a2w files are the Alice world files themselves, and aren't supposed to be imported.
Instead, go to File > Open and select the world you want, and it'll open for you.

However, this doesn't get the individual objects, it gets the objects contained within a world. To obtain the objects themselves, refer to this: [URL=""][SIZE="2"][B][U]Saving Objects[/U][/B][/SIZE][/URL].[/SIZE]
