Topic: Game Programming / Is there any way to make iOS apps in Flash CS4?

It looks like only CS5 can do it, but I just want to be sure. If it doesn’t work, what would be the simplest, least expensive way to do it for someone with Windows? I’m guessing buying a later version of Flash wouldn’t be the best option.

Thanks.

If you have other CoD games, you don’t need Ghosts; it’s the same thing.

You sound like someone who would like Black Ops 2. ;)

I like that one. But I think just “Twilight Zone” is fine too.

I think ROTMG is an excellent example of how games should be… without the hardcore mode and terrible graphics.

Hardcore mode being the permanent death? That’s the best part of the game.

I hate to say this, but Flash games really do seem to be dying out. BerzerkStudio just went bankrupt, and they’ve always been the top developer on FlashGameLicense.

Which shooter game made you grind the most?

Definitely TGP4: The Grinding Project. Horrible game. But I used to play because it was the only sidescroller shooter on Kong with multiplayer.

Topic: Kongregate / Rise of Mythos Xbox One

Well, I played the game, completed the tutorial. No notification saying I was entered in the contest showed up. Did I do something wrong? It said I just had to play the game.

Is it open-source?

Its what they run Terraria on right?

It’s not open source, you have to license it for commercial use, but it’s free for personal use. Never heard of Terraria, but Unreal Engine powers Borderlands, BioShock, and many more.

Topic: Game Programming / Mouse (x,y) is wrong

Sounds like the movieclip you want to move is inside another movieclip (container). You’ll need to put the container clip’s registration point at 0,0 on the stage.

If that won’t work, you’ll have to add or subtract the container’s coordinates from the movieclip (the object you want to move). I’ve done this before, but I can’t remember exactly how to do it.

But surely that isn’t pay2win, as you accomplish the same thing without purchasing — it is pay4impatience. Wouldn’t pay2win require that it be something you couldn’t achieve without paying?

In TDP4, you can get most of the good stuff by grinding, and I’d still consider it a pay-to-win game because you have to spend an insane amount of time grinding to get the good stuff.

I like to call it TGP4: The Grinding Project.

Pay-to-win game: TDP4 Team Battle.

Good microtransactions: RotMG before Kabam bought it. The stuff you could spend real money on didn’t affect the gameplay, for example you could buy different outfits and extra character slots. Now the game’s not as good, as you can buy weapons and equipment, kind of defeating the point of the game, which is to acquire good weapons and equipment so you can rack up fame.

That can help, but making Flash games for a living probably isn’t a great idea.

Topic: Realm of the Mad God / How to level up pet heal and magic heal

Hi, so I just realized you can feed pets items (O_o). Every time I feed my little red ant, his attack is increased. How do I work on the other stats, or is it not possible for this certain pet? Thanks.

Topic: Game Design / Top Down Type of DayZ

If there is shooting, unique environments, and good sounds, I would probably enjoy it. Just don’t make it grind- or pay-to-win.

Pretty sure at least 15-20% of Kong’s users are < 13.

Topic: Game Programming / Interfaces vs Inheritance

Got it, thanks.

Just curious, how often are interfaces typically used? Less than inheritance?

Topic: Game Programming / Interfaces vs Inheritance

I’m sure interfaces will suddenly make sense, but right now I’m still a little confused.

It seems as if the main benefit of interfaces is if you are working with other programmers on a project, you can use an interface to make sure the other programmers know that the object extending the interface requires myMethod() to be declared.

Thanks.

Nope, advertisements pop out along with the game.

That’s my main problem with cinematic mode. So annoying.

Looks pretty cool. I think I remember hearing about this game a year ago or so. Is it Unity?
