Actually, the answer to that must be because people will call you lazy.

Topic: Game Programming / Need Tutorial for Animating/Controlling Characters

Yeah, I pretty much needed to know how the actual animation of the character works… I’m not going to deny that I’m lazy, but if there’s an easier route why not take it?

Okay I think I understand. Thanks.

Topic: Game Programming / Need Tutorial for Animating/Controlling Characters

I want to make a flash game, and I’ve followed a tutorial to do one before. (It was the Shootorial…) However, right now I want to learn how to make a plat-former. I want to learn how to animate a character for that game. For example, where could I learn to make it so when I move it left, it faces left, and when I jump, it curls up in the air? The Shootorials I did didn’t involve anything like that. I would also like to know how to make it so when I press a key, my character moves. The Shootorials did explain how to do that, but I don’t remember, and I don’t want to go digging around in there. It would be easier to have both the animation of the character, and the keys for the movement of the character, in the same tutorial. But it isn’t necessary.

I’m hoping you will direct me to a quality tutorial, or even explain it to me yourself. The tutorial doesn’t have to be on Kongregate, I’ll do one from any site.

Topic: Kongregate Labs / Ideas for a Game

Well if you get Adobe Flash (you could download the free trial) then you can go to here http://www.kongregate.com/labs and do this tutorial. It will teach you how to make games. If you’re feeling generous, I would like it if you would share your ideas with me.

Topic: Kongregate Labs / Ideas for a Game

IF YOU DON’T LIKE READING THEN SKIP TO THE BOTTOM FOR THEQUICK EXPLANATION

Right now my school is having an Animation and Interactive Games contest, and I think I can win (or at least make a good effort.) I have had some experience with Flash before, but I was following a tutorial, and I stopped when Flash gave me this super annoying error so I had to put Flash on my other computer. I used to have CS3 but now I have CS4. I am learning in ActionScript 3.0. I was following these tutorials. http://www.kongregate.com/labs (By the way those tutorials were for ActionScript 2.0, but I was using a separate version for ActionScript 3.0.

I haven’t been able to come up with any ideas, and that’s where you guys come in. I was thinking about following the tutorial and creating my own images and a different game idea (but pretty much the same thing) but I don’t really like the idea. I’m definitely not going to use the original finished product from the tutorial, because I feel like I’m submitting somebody else’s game, and that’s not right. Here is a list of my favorite games:
http://www.kongregate.com/games/2DArray/the-company-of-myself (Possible one of my absolute favorites because of the beautiful plot.)

http://www.kongregate.com/games/TogeProductions/infectonator-world-dominator
http://www.kongregate.com/games/YMM315/moneyseize

Please give me some ideas. My favorite is The Company of Myself because of the powerful plot and great game-play. Please suggest game ideas. By the way, I am not a fan of tower defense games.

QUICK EXPLANATION: Please suggest ideas for a flash game for me to make for my school’s animation and interactive games contest.

Topic: Technical Support / Shootorials for ActionScript 3.0 links don't work.

I’d never noticed that before. By the way I am doing this on the Shootorial’s specifically for ActionScript 3.0.

Topic: Technical Support / Shootorials for ActionScript 3.0 links don't work.

Thanks for the link Ljrules. The only problem with your idea Kioyoh, is that when I right click on the here, those options don’t appear. It’s as if it’s normal text. Perhaps this has to do with me using Google Chrome as my web browser…

Topic: Technical Support / Shootorials for ActionScript 3.0 links don't work.

I am doing the Shootorials for ActionScript 3.0 and whenever I click the download links, nothing happens. I got the Ship image from the Shootorials for ActionScript 2.0, but I can’t get the Key.as file which is required. This may be my problem or the tutorials problem. Can someone paste the script? Can you link me to it? Can you tell me how to deal with this? Please?

Topic: General Gaming / Zelda Games

Everyone here who says Ocarina of Time, I SAY YES YES YES! I also love Twilight Princess for the Wii, it feels a lot like Ocarina of Time, but some of the puzzles are harder.

My third on the list is Zelda II: The Adventures of Link. It’s one of the classics for NES. I love the style, it’s difficult though. This was before they created puzzles in Zelda.
