Topic: Game Programming / Methods of Lag reduction.

Lots of stuff is not a factor. I have 10s of things onscreen at a time. I just thought they wouldn’t effect lag if I made offscreen ones (hundreds) invisible.

Topic: Game Programming / Methods of Lag reduction.

Well, you see I have been making this game for a while. 2 and a half years. I was not as good with Actionscript back then, so I placed an onclipevent on just about everything. Would there be a way to replace all instances of onclipevent in flash with whatever else?

Topic: Game Programming / Methods of Lag reduction.

What can I do? I have tried quality, making offscreen mc’s invisible, mute, removing big mcs completely after they play, and making images have a lower filesize. Remember, the filesize isn’t the problem, the lag is.

I will try my best to sustain any room as well as I can. I think sticking with your supportive forum users is the best bet, because we are the most dedicated to the site, especially if we are developers too.

Topic: Game Programming / Downloadable .Swf?

Heh. I knew that. But could a page be generated from within Flash that links to the .zip and effectively downloads it?

Would there be a way to make the gamer download a copy of the game .swf in a zip file then?

Defend your mom. I see genius in the works already. Use the mouse to drag emails from her before she opens them and gets a virus. Protect her as she washs the dishes. Defend her cat when she’s away.

Topic: Kongregate / Suggest a moderator

You knew a post was going to happen like this, but actually I have a lot of free time and could contribute greatly as chat moderator. I have been trying to obey rules of conduct as much as I can, and I try to help people better their conduct if I see such an action.

Hence, pick me. :)

Topic: Game Programming / Linkage Tutorial.

Yeah, thanks for clarifing. Most browsers detect the signal being sent as an unknown source, and with on(release){ it knows that it is coming from a trustworthy thing, not a malicious ‘click this’ type.

Topic: Game Programming / Downloadable .Swf?

How do I make it so that my flash saves a .swf copy of itself onto the desktop of the player? Basically, how do I give the “Save As..” command from inside the flash?

Autoformat it, because something is making the script go horizantally.

Topic: Game Programming / Linkage Tutorial.

As it is a complex topic, linking to different mediums has been a difficult subject to learn in Flash. Fear not, as for the benefit of you, as well as a reference for me, I have written our savior.

First of all, create a button. This is simply done via selecting a drawn object such as a square with the words ‘Email me’ and pressing F8. Then, a popup is brought up with different options. Select the circle which has the word ‘button’ next to it and name it whatever you wish. I usually choose something memorable or vaguely obvious for edits later. Proceed to press F9 and typing the following code.

on(release){
    getURL("mailto:deltaforce123@gmail.com")
}

Wait, that is my email! I don’t want to take credit for your production. So lets figure this out. The On(release){ mechanic works as a handle for the script, and the getURL gets the action. The } at the end holds it together, so it must be my email you must change. Assume that your email is SeanBeggedMeForYe@rsForThisTut.com. Then, highlight my email, erase it completely, and paste SeanBeggedMeForYe@rsForThisTut.com. Easy enough? Want the user to be able to IM you also? Does Aim sound like a good message client? Good then, I have just the script for you. It begins and ends just as the prior one, but instead of mailto it reads

aim:goim?screenname=

and this is then followed by the screename promptly. End the parenthesis and cup the script. However, if you wish to add a message, in addition add

&message=Message

Change message to whatever you want the IM to read. Instead of spaces use addition signs. Your script for instant messaging should look like this.

on(release){
  getURL(" aim:goim?screenname=ForceDelta8&message=Hello")
}

Except my username and message being replaced with yours. Enjoy, and I hope you learned something and didn’t just copypasta.
