Topic: Off-topic / Do you like bacon?

After puking, thinking about drinking bacon grease, I have to say I love bacon . . . I love bacon so much, I’m willing to wear and a shirt that would say something along the lines of “I heart shape Bacon”

They probably could, they did do multiple limits for some of the challenges.

Topic: Kongregate / Badge Suggestions!

well, i find the square avoider badge could be easily accomplished if you just concentrate and take your time, so i would personally think it should be medium. The rest, i agree with. My badges would be . . . hmm . . . :

Top Hitman Badge (medium – 15 points) Beat Tactical Assassin with 100% accuracy

Micro Flyer Badge (hard – 30 points) Clear all levels of the Micro Olympics
{maybe impossible}

Topic: Game Programming / What product to get?

I am new to flash, but im learning and i plan on first making an animation (by the end of next summer) and then i plan on making a game (by the end of the summer after next). Its going to be kinda of a summer hobby, and during the year in high school ill do it on and off and then, the year after that I’ll be in college so i’ll have a bunch of time to work on it inbetween class and studying. I have flash 8 but I dont plan on getting the new flash version till I start working more with AS.

Topic: Game Programming / What product to get?

Well, I was looking into all the flash products macromedia had to offer and all I saw was this Flash CS3 Professional. If (once i get my basics down) I was to purchase the latest and greatest, would this be the right product to buy?

Topic: Off-topic / Arrow Game!

^ Has no idea what he is talking about

- Enjoys this game enough to respond to it and apparently has a retarded keyboard that doesnt have a down arrow so has to resort to using a ‘v’ which he just relized is how everyone does their down arrows thus sending him into a spiraling depression about how stupid he is

v is confused at what i just said

Topic: General Gaming / runescape

Ahhh runescape (moment of nostalgia) played the game when it first got out and was a member in the original runescape. I was also the group who got to try the beta version of the new runescape. After awhile, I figured out it was boring, so I sold my lvl 80 account to some kid down my street who was addicted to it like crack. I then soon found Guild Wars . . . but then I figured out that game was extremely repetitive and either not challenging enough, or impossibly hard (at times, ie FOW, UW). I have seen people play WoW but I decided not to rot my life infront of a game like that. My friend currently has an account and in one week, he got to lvl 40. Impressive, yes, but for that week, I didn’t see him or hear from him once. He now comes out of his house about once a week to hang out, but the rest of the time he is playing WoW. So, for now, I am working on learning flash, and I am playing little flash games, talking with people online, and getting outside and working out at the gym, and I go swimming. (and there’s my life story, lol).

Topic: Game Programming / Actionscript books

luckily for me, writing code is the least of my worries. It comes naturally to me for some reason. I currently know a great deal of java programming and from the little I have learned, I figured out it is alike in a lot of ways, such as System.out.println() turns into trace() or instead of actually putting a specific data type on a variable (i.e. String word, int number, char letter, etc.) you can just type a variable name. I think, once I get the hold of AS2, I will be able to easily jump into AS3, the only problem is the fact that I’m horrible at animation, lol. I recently also bought the Flash Bible and so far that is helping me out a great deal. I find it quite comprehensive, eventhough its a little hard to jump into (the size is almost intimidating).

Topic: Kongregate / Suggestions

Well, I didn’t read all of the post so i dont know if this idea has been suggested yet. I think that there should be a way to have a chat box all by itself, like w/o the game being attached to it. I know i could just open up any game and just chat without playing the game, but sometimes, i am really not even in the mood to even look at a game. Sometimes when i want to just chat, but i have a game open, i feel compelled to play the game. I know it sounds silly, but w/e. It sounds like a good idea to me.

Topic: Game Programming / I am Organizing a flash project team

Ya, like everyone else says, start small and grow larger. I just started learning actionscript and my main goal is to make a decent game, but I kind of set a more realistic timeline where I would finish this said game by the end of summer in two years. I’m also starting smaller than games and I’m planning on making a good stick figure animation first before actually starting on games, so I can get basic flash down (just an example from starting small to large). All this takes time, but if you really set your mind to it and try hard, you can make a great game. PS java isnt the best thing to make a great game out of, kind of more of a small scale game. One of the only really great games made from java is runescape which I believe (correct me if im wrong) was made because someone challenged the producers that they couldnt make a great game out of java (so I’ve heard). PPS when I say runescape is a great game, I really mean extremely successful, but i was never that big of a fan myself.

“And please give more info im not going to join a project without knowing what im saying yes to. PS:it is flash right? PSS:Im a programmer”

While we are on the subject of grammer, it is PPS not PSS. PPS means post post script (or post postscriptum) while PSS would mean post scripts (resource: dictionary.com).

Topic: Game Programming / New Programmer Needing Guidance

Thanks for all the replies so far. I do have to say i love coding, i mainly like the challenge of it all and figuring out how to do different things (for java programmers out there, a fun website is javabat.com , there are a lot of fun programming challenges). Right now i’m planning on making an animation b/f making any games, just to get my animation skills and simple action script up to speed. Luckily for me, i know a lot of OOP and i bought a very basic book on action script that is helping me a lot (it is true that books are better than the web b/c you can’t copy and paste from a book).

Topic: Game Programming / Actionscript books

Well, I’m attempting to learn to make flash but (so i’ve been told) it is a lot easier to learn actionscript from books than it is to learn it from the web. Does anyone have an good suggestion for books?

Topic: Game Programming / New Programmer Needing Guidance

I’m aware that there is a thing right at the top of this forum that says “Read First” but thats not what I’m asking for. I am wondering how i should approach learning flash. First off, I would like to say that I have taken two computer science courses over java, i dont know if it will help but i thought you would like to know. Anyway, I was wondering how to get started learning all this stuff. Should i learn the programming part first or should i learn the animation. I just need a guide to help me get start learning
