Topic: Game Programming / bitmapdata problem

terrain_bmpd.draw(new BitmapData(550,400,true,0xFF000000), null, null, BlendMode.ERASE);

i would guess that that would remove 550 × 400 of pixels from the top left of terrain_bmpd.

What does it do?

Nothing. Absolutely nothing.

Any help?

Topic: Kongregate / Username change - lowercase letter to capital?

Is is possible for someone on Kongregate team to change a username (my one) so that the first letter is capital?

Obviously not important, i just like the “r” to be capital instead of lowercase :P

Thanks

You can do a super smash brothers project, as long as you don’t earn ANY money from it. As soon as you earn a cent, you are subject to a bunch of laws.

Super Smash Flash 2 is the only successful Super Smash Brothers (on flash) that i have seen.

Topic: Game Programming / Collision with Parent.

If i have a whole bunch of blocks in a Movieclip (lest call the movieclip “Solid”) and with one of those blocks i wanted to check if it collides with another block in Solid, could i just do a hitTest with Solid?

For example.

Block1, Block2 and Block3 are in Solid.

I want to check if Block 1 has collided with one of the other blocks.

Would i have to check a collision with Block2, and then a collision with Block3, or could i just check a collision with Solid?

Sean if you want my advice, just make a game with a team, if the team is good (or particular people on that team) talk to them, and ask them to work with you in the future. If you got along a lot with one, then they will probably say yes. Work with them, getting more people to help if you need it, until you find a group of people who work well together. That is much better than a straight out “Who is with me” especially when you have no example of your talent, and when your trying to name the group after yourself.

Topic: Collaborations / Looking for isometric vector artist

Ok, for those of you who are interested, i have updated the link.

And @parallactic_acid
i am working on the control options, should be done soon (just a random button to switch right now, but it will eventually be somewhere fitting in the game (menu / pause)).

Topic: Collaborations / Looking for isometric vector artist

now thats an idea, but i would still need up and right for example, to follow the 30 degree movement (what up is now)
Thanks for the idea!

Actually i might have a controls option, so you can choose WASD or Arrows, and then how the movement is now, or just how you said it.

:D

Topic: Collaborations / Looking for isometric vector artist

Hello Developers! (and hopefully artists)

I have recently started work on an Isometric game. Not much of an example, but here is what i have done so far:

http://megaswf.com/serve/34874/

So what would the graphics be like?

- Isometric
- Cartoonish
- Colorful
- “Fun”

Some examples of what will be needed:

- Buildings
- Humans
- Plants

Not so obvious features:

Everything will fit in a cubic tile. Those cubic tiles put together will then make up the isometric world.

NOT ALL THE OBJECTS SHALL BE CUBES HOWEVER, SO THE ABILITY TO DO ROUNDED AND ABNORMAL SHAPES IN ISOMETRIC WOULD BE APPRECIATED.

Which means, for a tree, there could be a few cubic tiles:

-Stump
-Trunk
-A few for leaves

Then i can make that tree as tall (or short) as i want, or i could simply have it as a trunk.

Sooo…. Everything will need to have all three views with detailed graphics (top, left, right).

You couldn’t skip the top of the stump, even though there is usually a trunk there, because i quite a few situations i am likely to leave it as just a stump.

I think you get the idea…

To sum it up:

I need a artist who can do isometric graphics, colorful art and won’t quit on the job…

Thankyou for reading, please consider.

if that code is on a layer, which goes across frame 1 and 2 it would probably stuff up, or you might have that code in frame 2 accidently, other then that, sorry i don’t know.

Plugin tool script error in method ik_activateTressFromSelection
Plugin tool script error in method activate
Plugin tool script error in method mouseDown

Topic: Game Programming / I need fresh eyes

num children is probably wrong, either than or there isn’t a child at the number it is trying to access.

Do you remove killers?

Or maybe im just totally wrong O.o

just googled for a while, try this:

killer = getChildAt(i) as MovieClip;

it might work
