Are you freaking kidding me? I'll try to resist the urge to call this the worst flash game I've ever been unlucky to experience on Kongregate, and instead offer up some honest feedback. That would be, play test your game before unleashing them to the world. A simple test run would have proven this to be unworthy of even desperate people. Lag? Lag is what I use to get on dial-up when trying to play Doom. This is bad programming, plain and simple.
This poor little kids learning their flash have no idea that this is where it started for most of us. I remember looking through all the code for this game trying to learn all I could about basic programing. Porting this is paying homage to those days.
Great tutorial. I'm not understanding some parts, but being able to look at the fla's and compare will help. Thanks! btw, where'd you get the music? Must be some unheard of band that let you use their song. :)
Shame I couldn't get the files either. Compiler is having a field day with the code. I've been trying to break it down to find the problems. Could not. I went so far as to paste the exact code you have into the AS. Nota. Well, at least you gave me an idea. I'll have to work on it on my own sometime.
I wanted the mini boss to show up every 1000 points. How I did it was by getting rid of the timer, and using this as the if statement for spawning a mini boss.
if (!_root.miniBoss && (!_root.scoreText.text == 0) && Math.floor(_root.scoreText.text / 1000) == (_root.scoreText.text / 1000) )
What is does is test that there is not a boss already, and that the score does not equal 0 and can be evenly divided by 1000.
I had it set to 30 fps. I ended up exporting it as a flash movie instead of a gif. For some reason I can not get the gif to run correctly, even with extra frames added. But, after some tweaking, I got it to work with a flash movie.
Ok, figured it out! IMPORTANT: When you first create the bar movie clip, make sure the "Registration" is set with a dot on the left. I didn't know what that meant, so I had to go back and remake the bar. :(
Can't see the source code, it's not compatible (unexpected file format). So that leaves me guessing on half of the things I need to do. Google is no help. :( Can someone please explain how I am suppose to align the health bar? It "empties" toward the center.
I hate to spam, but I'm updating my progress. I've tried making the explosion in gif, swf, everything. It plays fine normally, but, after I import it into this game, it plays far too fast. I can't find any info on google or in the help about this.
