Mario: that’s really cool, perhaps you could try without drawing the lines on the edges of the buildings.

Aants: that’s great! looking forward to seeing your filter settings etc.

Once you realize how hard it is to get others to accept your good ideas for free you will never again:

- hear someone claim their idea is worth buying and not laugh.
- be worried about someone “stealing” your ideas.

Ideas alone are worth nothing. Products are worth something. If you have an idea and you think it’s great, turn it into a product and sell it. Until then, you have nothing of value.

Amen.

…or otherwise hire a team to make it for/with you.

Topic: Game Programming / what AS3 sound library is this?

thanks, I had one library before which had actual recordings of nice instruments (including rhodes) at tritones apart ( 3 tones = 1/2 an octave) these ( I presume ) would then be dynamically transposed or stretched to change the note and keep it sounding awesome by choosing the closest tritone note…

I can’t find where I saved it!

anyone used it?

Topic: Game Programming / what AS3 sound library is this?

does anyone know which as3 sound library comes with a bunch of sounds of keyboards ( fender rhodes ) and other instruments and pitches them up/down to get the correct tones?

thanks

Topic: Game Programming / AS3: Working with library images

automate it… if you have to write a flash program to do it ;)

otherwise Java?

}

this will actually help reduce the size of the SWF; as by default, without giving the class file, there are around 15 classes from the mx package that are included and used just to make one bitmap asset.

that’s really cool! does it matter how you name that .as file?

Topic: Game Programming / Line Gradient...

I’m guessing you can’t.

Use math to place it exactly where you want it. (one of those parameters later on… keep adding commas :)

if you need a bezier or multi part line, you’d probably have to use separate calls to lineGradientStyle… with lots more math to make them smooth together.

Topic: Game Design / Deeper Topic: The design of Toadman’s stage, Megaman 4

nice thread.

I especially think donkey kong country (snes) has great level design. You generally face a certain obstacle or mechanic in any level (e.g. treetop platforming, barrel insanity, minecarts…) and then at the end of the level your skills are tested to the extreme. Very satisfying experience ( when you win. )

Topic: Game Programming / Can someone write me a simple program?

could you just do it in flash?

or just use command line to grab all the names, then use regExps to insert the xml between the file names.

You forgot the most important one:

Cubic Bezier Curves — The Graphics.cubicCurveTo drawing API allows developers can easily create complex cubic Beziers without requiring custom ActionScript code.

That makes using the Flash platform about 25% less embarrassing.

that’s awesome!! but hopefully it’s not glitchy as! like the curveTo method… leaves artefacts left right and centre. Just Shocking!

Topic: Game Programming / Card Game

I’d say it doesn’t matter at all!

use whatever you’re most comfortable programming with. AND whatever is easiest for you’re designer( s )/you to edit.

I used a 52 indexed timeline.

( but obviously a sprite sheet can only be used with bitmaps. )

because

That doesn’t mean the reviewers gave anything back but the top three reviews.

and that doesn’t mean kong doesn’t know what they gave them…

Correct, that doesn’t.

I’m afraid we only have comments from the reviewers on the top 3 games – sorry. Congrats to the winners, and thanks again to everyone who entered!

^ That, however, does.

that means ’there’s only comments about top 3 and not top 20’
and NOT ‘which games were in that top 20,’ but hey, whatevs…

Just rate them, and you’ll get new recommendations.

yes, this is great! I think you should be able to scroll through more recommendations though. Perhaps you could even just have the cross up the top right to get rid of one and bring in a new one.

(just because most of the recommendations any seasoned Kong’er would’ve played before, and anyone who hasn’t been here long probably isn’t registered and therefore doesn’t rate/ get recommendations anyway)

EDIT : this should also be available when you are playing a game and you see ‘more games like this’ and you’ve already played them all…
