Under rating threshold (show) Great tutorial, I don't use flash just yet(I'm using c# right now, which has many similarities) and it really does explain some very interesting and useful things that I hope to use once I start learning AS3. One little change I'd like is for the yellow effect in tweaks to be more visible, perhaps you can add a black background when it's active?

Under rating threshold (show) not a game 1/5. No seriously, this tutorial has helped me so much. Some of the filters seem sort of unnecessary, but the end result is nice.

Under rating threshold (show) 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.

Under rating threshold (show) For the second part of the tutorial, when it says to add some filters to my fire movie clip, and I put it under "function makeParticle()" these errors pop up, "Import statements are not allowed inside class or instance definitions", on the lines where I'm importing flash filters.

Under rating threshold (show) Particle effects, page 6 & 7. It tells me that function makeParticle(); and function (onEnterFrame) must be in a onClipEvent handler. And if I add that it doesn't work. :( Help please.

Under rating threshold (show) @scoz: plenty of people still use AS2, for various reasons. It's not "dead" yet, and probably won't be for several years. In addition to that, it's easier to learn than AS3. I always recommend that newbies start with AS2, and then move to AS3, if they want.

Under rating threshold (show) AS2 is more newb-friendly (less strict), and, despite the fact that some (rich and/or pirate :P) coders think anything that's not the latest version should be erased from existence, many people still use AS2, for whatever reason.

Under rating threshold (show) I tried your code out wert, and it worked fine. Make sure the code is on the fire clip's first frame's actions panel. make sure you have an instance of that clip on the stage. also make sure your particle clip has something in it, and has Linkage set to "Particle"

Mar. 28, 2010

Under rating threshold (show) Yeah, this tutorial uses the actions panel for code. It could be done in .as files with some minor adjustments, but I find the actions panel more convenient for small-scale things like this. I'll take a look at it and see if I made a mistake somewhere.

Under rating threshold (show) ok, found a few bugs so far. i will post the code i have now here function makeParticle() { var depth = this.getNextHighestDepth(); var p = this.attachMovie("Particle","p"+depth, depth); p.dir = Math.random() * 360; p.velocity = Math.random() * 5; p.xVel = Math.cos(p.dir * Math.PI/180) * p.velocity; p.yVel = Math.sin(p.dir * Math.PI/180) * p.velocity; p.count = 0; p.onEnterFrame = function() { this.count += 1; this._x += this.xVel; this._y += this.yVel; if(this.count > 200) { this.removeMovieClip() } } } function onEnterFrame() { makeParticle(); } i retyped the frame code, it didn;t work. and I changed the "speed" to "velocity", AND I added p. to the dir and speed var.

Under rating threshold (show) i don't understand.. do you have to put the code in the actions of the movie clip itself, the object? or in an .as file? (class Fire extends etc.) or in the first frame actions?

Under rating threshold (show) Update! Fixed the problems you pointed out marten, other than the source. I might do that within the next few days, but I'm kinda busy now. And sorry Tukkun, but I nerfed the Ninja XP you get from reading this tutorial by 40%. it was just way to overpowered.

Under rating threshold (show) Thanks for all the encouragement. Thanks for pointing those mistakes out marten, Expect them fixed when I get back in about 3-4 hours. Farmer, if you look up top, you'll notice I uploaded this to the "tutorials" section of Kongregate. Things posted here aren't supposed to be games.
