I have a StartScreen (from ig.Game.extend), a LevelSelectScreen (from ig.Game.extend) and a MyGame (also from ig.Game.extend).

On StartScreen there is a button which either loads MyGame which Loads Level1 on init.

I load levels and keep track of the player's stats in the MyGame.

I have buttons on the level select screen, and I can make them do something when clicked, but I don't know how to start MyGame and load a specific level from there. Please help! I've been working on this all week.

You can use this plugin:

I use it in my game, and it works well. I have 3 or 4 different games within my full game. These games each handle a specific purpose:
OpeningGame = handles opening screen, opening story etc.
MenuGame = handles the main menu/level select
RunnerGame = This is the actual game, holds all the levels etc.
EndGame = handles game over, ending story, continue screen

This is an example of a level select button.  This is in the MenuGame, it is the action of a button click.

Then in the RunnerGame Init I have this code
if(typeof this.persistantData  !== "undefined"){[this.persistantData.passedLevel]);
// if nothing is passed then I load the default level

I also use the director plugin, but you can use this same concept without need it, but the director plugging makes larger leveled game much easier to transition between levels

Thanks a lot! That seems like it will do the trick. This seems pretty basic, do you know why doesn't impact have it built in?

Thats more of a question for Dominic.

It's one of the advantages of impact that you can easily extend it for your needs. In the 4 games I have made professionally, I only once had to make a level select screen, and that was for my personal project.

There's also a handful of other ways to do this, some might already be built into impact already, that I'm not aware of.

Thanks. I'm actually making this game as a school project (Everyone has to do 20 hours of community service per year and they said this would count), and the deadline is fast approaching. Thank you for your help!

About my previous comment, the game that I'm making is educational.

Good luck with the project, post it up here when it's close to finished.
