PHP+MySQL, then some link phrasing. i tested it once and it worked fine, but has it’s limitations.

Topic: Game Programming / Tile map editor

I assumed you’d not get any responses since things like that are normally game specific ;)

Eitherway, you will probably be reading the tiles form a 2D X/Y array, so you can either just hardcode it, or code an editor for you to use that output the correct format for inserting into the array :)

Topic: Game Programming / "overwritten" movieclips get garbage collected?

They’ll probably all be stored into an array when added for later manipulation.

Topic: Game Programming / "overwritten" movieclips get garbage collected?

If i say spawn a bunch of movieclips, and the movieclips that get put another one ontop makes it invisible to the eye, as in overlaid. Will the underlying be caught by the garbage collection, or how would i go along as to assure it wont just keep eating RAM?

Topic: Game Programming / PHP<->Flash interfacing

Well, seeing as PHP will be a bit troublesome, lets change the subject :D

Is there anyway to have a externally hosted database(preferrably MySQL) communicate with Flash/AS2 for working with pretty large ammounts of data.

PHP/MySQL is ofc preferred as thats what i have most experience with…

Topic: Game Programming / PHP<->Flash interfacing

I found that one too jonathan, but i pondered why it was loading from a .txt file, and not from a PHP script as i want it to :S

Topic: Game Programming / PHP<->Flash interfacing

Well, i’ll google round, if its only possible with AS3 then crap it, its just a little fun project…

Topic: Game Programming / PHP<->Flash interfacing

Pretty sure a friend of mine did that, so mind rethinking? it must be possible in someway, and i never said communicate, i just meant relay number/strings

Topic: Game Programming / PHP<->Flash interfacing

How would i go about interfacing/transferring data between a PHP script and Flash? security is not too extremly important in this case

Also, is the statistic API the one that creates highscores?

All in AS2 ofc :D Thanks
