Topic: Game Programming / As2 point and click game help.

I’d make an invisible button over an inventory slot movie clip with two frames. Coding on symbols is messy and can lead to confusion. Write this code on the frame:

yourButtonInstanceName.onRelease = function(){
if(_root.slotMovieClipInstanceName._currentframe == 2) {
_root.slotMovieClipInstanceName.gotoAndStop(3);
} else {
_root.slotMovieClipInstanceName.gotoAndStop(2);
}

I haven’t used AS2 in a long time, but I think that will work. Be sure to give your button and slot mc instance names and use them in the code.

Topic: Game Programming / Can adding RAM cause driver issues?

Thanks for the replies. I did ground myself when I installed the RAM. I got everything sorted out with Dell, I’m getting a replacement.

Topic: Game Programming / Can adding RAM cause driver issues?

I just got a new Dell PC, i7 quad core and 8 GB of RAM running Windows 7 64-bit. I ordered an additional 8 GB of RAM (from Dell). I started the computer, got the latest updates, then shut down, and added the additional RAM. When I started up again, the screen was messed up, as you can see here.

I restarted the computer and everything worked. I used the computer a couple hours, but then the disc drive suddenly no longer read discs, and it disappeared from My Computer. It was working before. I did a system restore and that fixed it.

A week later my display driver crashed and recovered, and the next day, when I started the PC I got the messed up screen again several times in a row. Nothing has happened since, but I’ve only had the computer for 2 weeks.

Could the RAM be causing these problems? It’s possible the computer was defective before I added it, since I only used it once just to download the system updates.

I will contact Dell shortly, but I wanted other opinions. Thanks!

Topic: Game Design / How important is a splash screen for a game?

It’s kind of like a front door. Most games feel unpolished without one.

I’m interested, but can you please provide a little more information? What exactly do you need done, and would this be paid work? Thanks!

I built Stickocalypse in about 10 months, working on it on and off. I estimate I spent about 500 hours on it.

Topic: Game Design / New to Game Design

You’re supposed to be 13 to have a Kongregate account. If you’re younger than that, just make sure your parents know what you’re doing and you shouldn’t have a problem. All you have to do is upload the game file to Kong, it’s super simple like uploading a video to Youtube. Good luck with your game! ;)

Thanks, guys. Pricing looks fine, haha. I was just wondering if they were going to shut down soon like MochiAds and leave the game dysfunctional.

Topic: Game Programming / PlayerIO lifespan

Is PlayerIO worth using in 2014? Do you think they’ll shut it down soon?

What multiplayer Flash game servers would you recommend? Thanks!

This is all subjective and depends on the project. I think 3 is fantastic. I don’t think 4 even looks like game art.

Topic: Game Programming / How I can make a game like Bob The Button?

Gabidou, it sounds like you just want to make a simple button game and aren’t into programming at all. If that’s the case, you can make a button game in Flash super easily by using frames. Just type the text you want the button to say on each frame, and when the button is clicked, the player goes to the next frame. I’m not sure if you can do it in Stencyl, I’ve never used it. I wouldn’t bother messing with all the array and text code if you don’t care to understand how it works.

If you use the outdated ActionScript 2 in Flash, you can create a button game with just 4 lines of code:


stop();
button.onRelease = function(){
_root.nextFrame();
}

If you want to learn, listen to the other guys. But if you don’t care, you can achieve the same result much faster like this. :P

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.

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.
