the actor button is not there

the tutorial says there is a purple “actor” button…it has a screenshot of where this button is located.
i see everything that is supposed to be around that button, but the button itself is just not there!

I’d ask that you do a search before asking more questions

the actor button doesn’t show up when there is no physics engine selected. When the game engine came back with 2.33 there is code to allow for multiple physics engines [which currently only tuhopuu has], and the default physics engine is no physics [therfore, no actor button]

so, go into the world buttons [which are under the f5 shading buttons], and about in the middle on the mist and stars panel, change the physics engine from “none” to “sumo”

you will probably want to do this on your default .blend file, then save defaults with control+u
