Topic: Game Programming / Quick Question on My Game

one:


function foo() {
this._alpha = 50;
}

mc1.onEnterFrame = foo;
mc2.onEnterFrame = foo;

two:


var mcs:Array = new Array();
mcs.push(mc1);
mcs.push(mc2);

_root.onEnterFrame = function() {
for (i in mcs) {
woot(mcs[i]);
}
};

function woot(mc:MovieClip) {
mc._x += 10;
}

two! two methods! mwahahaha

Topic: Game Programming / Optional file loads.

1. only thing what comes to my mind is to not put them in fla/swf. instead load them from external files in runtime

2. if we talking about sounds/pics use MovieClipLoader

@spaceplant:
could be, but in comment from 9/7/2007 stays:
“This is still the case in 9.0.47 with AS3”

Topic: Game Programming / Tips on lag ?

yeah but point was to do both of it. move out stage and _visible=true. dunno if flash uses any clipping(if so moving out stage could help). well we should probably do some test for sure.

Topic: Game Programming / Tips on lag ?

I am afraid nope

there is also another tip:
“move the movieclips off stage”
like:


_x = -2000;
_y = -2000;

Topic: Game Programming / Tips on lag ?

and putting mc to empty frame should be better than _visible=false

Topic: Game Programming / In-Game Microtransactions

any thought on the prices?
like you did some surveys about how much players would pay for new levels or stuff?
lowest price limit?
and from players view. paypal, credit card?

oh and games would have to be hosted on your site or it(mictot-sys) could travel with swf?

(sorry for lot of question instead of answer but it’s interesting topic)

Topic: Game Programming / Removing MC

myMovieClip .attachMovie(    idName ,  newName ,  depth  [,  initObject ] )

second param is name – string.


“enemy”+container.getNextHighestDepth()

will give enemy0, enemy1, enemy2…

and so to remove them you would need call removeMovieClip(enemy0), removeMovieClip(enemy1)… container shortens the proces. also u can have array of those enemy mcs, loop trough it and call removeMC on them(and i suggest it than giving each mc own onEnterFrame – speed killer).

Topic: Game Programming / Removing MC

i second that.

on topic: u also can attach mc not to _root but to some empty mc on it – container. removing container == removing all its childern.

var container:MovieClip = _root.createEmptyMovieClip ("container", 100);
container.attachMovie(“enemy”, “enemy”+container.getNextHighestDepth(), container.getNextHighestDepth());

then code in main menu…


removeMovieClip(container);

Topic: Game Programming / need help

my shot will be for
angle = turret.cannon._rotation-90;
should be
angle = turret._rotation-90;

for quick look the problem seems to be that they didnt mention that cannon mc inside turret mc should have linkage id. its cannon + base = turret. and u can rotate canon only or just whole turret. base is a circle so no big diffrent.

(so u can copy code but remember to give linkage id to turret and cannon)

 
Flag Post

Topic: Game Programming / need help

this.cannon._rotation = (angle*-1)+90;

should go like

turret._rotation = (angle*-1)+90;

and make sure that turret mc has linkage id
