Thank you for the responses, very informative, and probably stuff I wouldn’t have learnt without this post =).

Aren’t a ton of those taken from commercial games? You’d face copyright issues if you used them.

Topic: Game Programming / Initalising Variables Within the Calling of Methods/Constructors

Say I have the a class called Ball, is it possible to call the constructor in such a manner?:

var newBall:MovieClip = new Ball(newx, newy, new Array(new int = 0));

In which an array is initialised, in which an integer is also initialised?
If so, what’s the correct way to do it?

Topic: Game Programming / Avoid sound "flooding"

I’d make a sound class that handles sounds, and has the logic to stop/override sounds based on conditions.

Topic: Game Programming / Movie Clip Depths

Hey guys.

I’m trying to get my player object to appear above the level objects using methods similar to the ones shown here.

Unfortunately they aren’t supported by ActionScript3 any more, anyone know of a solution?

Thanks you two, I figured that would be the case but I wanted to check with someone else before restructuring. =)

Topic: Game Programming / Referencing Primitive Data Types

I’ve got a method through which I’d like to pass a reference to two integers.

I’m a bit tired at the moment so chances are I’m missing an easy solution, but to anyone more concious at the moment, would you mind telling me how? =)

This. I don’t want idea guys seeing this post. Even the notion of it will make them think their ‘skills’ are viable.

I like organised sprite sheets in PNG format.

Topic: Game Design / [Feedback] Traffic Light

I found the game to be lacking a proper challenge and a storyline to motivate the player.

I also found it to be quite absurd that a traffic light would take to scaling shadow structures in a pink laser disco dimension.
