Topic: The Last Stand: Dead Zone / exploit - farming fuel

I would assume that making multiple accounts for personal gain being illegal would be a give-in, regardless of the circumstances. If they really can’t do anything because it’s not specifically written in stone, then they should start giving warnings and make it clear so that they can ban them, or at least take the extra fuel away.

Hmmm… Well putting it that way NineFiveThree, I guess that wouldn’t work very well…

Automatic scaling is nice to know though…

I don’t have photoshop, but I’ll keep it in mind…

Well, I think I will try something else, but thank you all of you for your advice. I’ll probably be asking you all for more as soon as I get stuck, probably sooner than later since I like to be complicated.

Topic: Game Programming / Shrinking Sprites in Flash

I decided that I want to learn flash and start making games that just anyone can play right off the internet, and after fiddling with the tutorials in the first post on the forum (How to make Flash games), I decided that I should try rewriting a game I already wrote in python to get used to actionscript. I figured that if it was all already written and figured out then it would be much easier than trying to come up with something new AND figure out how to put it together.

My problem is that my game was written to be played fullscreen at a 1024X768 resolution.

Since that probably won’t jive with a lot of people’s monitors, I don’t want to do that, but I can’t just say the screen’s smaller now because then all the sprites will be too big…

So my question is, is there a way that I could run the game in the background at its normal resolution… and then… like… take a snapshot or something of it and paste it on the stage? If that’s not possible, is there a better way to do it, or will I have to shrink all the sprites and re-figure the math?

If that’s really what I’d have to do then I’d probably be better off just writing something new since it was a bit of a project the first time, but I’d like to convert this game if it’s possible…

Edit: Can you take GreyH0rn off the Noob list Des? He apologized for his poorly worded message. And I accepted.

I’m still here. Haven’t had all the time in the world (and I’ve got some lovely games for christmas that have been hoarding my time), but still active for the most part. Working on th lvl 6 but something or another keeps me diverting the resources… It’s rather annoying.

Is a Chimaker someone that makes Chis?

Well, yes and no. In my intended sense, it is not plural, but I suppose that it could be. I actually came up with it after reading Chobits. Now one of my life goals is to make Chi, or something/someone like her (A.I. wise).

Just not this one. :D

Correct. Which is what makes him only a moderator for this one. :D

I guess, he’s not technically a moderator because he can’t force you to do that rule. Moderators enforce a rule and if not obeyed they can sorta make you do it. You know?

Well I suppose he couldn’t do anything with the actual post, but he could certainly punish us by removing us from the alliance.

Chimaker, no I didn’t. look at the post. Lollus made a post about Andy the SHRIMP!!!!

Yes, but he said he hated us. He never said he hated andy. He just said “you guys…” which means us.

Therefore the first mention of hating shrimp was when you pointed out that he loved shrimp, not hated it in reference to that post.

You just called us shrimp.

Lollus, your logic is faulty. If you want some shrimp now, sounds like you love shrimp (not hate them).

‘_’ You just insinuated that we’re shrimp. ‘_’

Hey chimaker, plz tell me the glitch, sounds usefull :P

XD I don’t know how I did it…

The last thing I did was I bought more yard space, and then… I think I attacked a kozu after the glitch but I’m not sure…

But I know I picked a mushroom and found 3 shiny right before I bought the space (that’s why I could afford it…)

But I JUST RECENTLY noticed that when it happened, the time stopped counting on one of the upgrades… but when I refreshed the page it started counting again…

Not sure what caused it.

Well, Benjy, I wasn’t amused by you hining I was a Cannibal either.
Although I always wanted to meet a talking dog.
You do know the one thing you should never say to a cannibal when you get mad?
Eat Me! (He just might!)

wait you say you eat people for breakfast and then you take offense for being called a cannibal hmm it makes perfect sense to you maybe XD

but not to anyone else ;P

Unfortunately 1benjy1, I think your logic is slightly flawed…

You assume that andy was human… However, it would make perfect sense that the idiot was actually a pet of some kind (explaining why he was eaten so easily so early in the day: he lacked the intelligence to build proper defenses) and he was eaten perfectly rationally by our friend merlin here.

Maybe andy was actually a shrimp. I know I’d eat him if he was cooked right and had the right sauce…

Edit for another post to avoid spamming: Hmmm… It seems that it’s glitched… I only have three workers, but now I’m upgrading 4 things at the same time… interesting…

Yes, Des_troyy, I’m so power hungry that I had a Lvl. 29 player (Andythe sweet) for breakfast.
(I hope he doesn’t mind the mess my monsters made of his base!!!)

cough who said you could try and interrupt a highly important managment level discussion!? XD

@ Des well sitting around thinking should i ask for a really small bit of power sometime next week perhaps get me anywhere? I think not! >:D

I think we might have to review merlins membership to the alliance he is a canibal :O (poor Andy horrid way to go, still with a name like that he was asking for it) I mean he is a risk to have around he might eat one of us perhaps even trollusion…. Hmm wait thats sounding kinda good now that ive thought about it XD

REVIEW PASSED

now go eat trollusion :)

See? This is how all governments should work. When a potential problem presents itself, the options on how to deal with it should all be measured fairly and the problem in question should be changed from a problem into a solution with minimal effort. :)

Hmmmm… This seems more like the contraction police than the grammar police…

And last time I checked, contractions were appropriate. (Except for ain’t)

ik, but remember we were total noobs when i attacked him TWICE, compared to his 7 TIMES

One has only truly graduated from noobdom when one has found both inner and outer peace with one’s noobish mistakes. Just as he is still a noob, so are you. But once you gain the power to overcome him, then you shall be truly rectified.
