I do not agree.
The Flash code editor sucked balls and I wouldn’t be surprised if it still does.
This is one reason Flash Builder exist. They wanted to get more programmers into Flash, but those did not like to use a drawing program for serious work.

You dont agree to what… you mention flash builder is better… but made by adobe…
?!?

Topic: Game Programming / AS3 Applying

If you dont know anything about as3 and how to program you should go with adobe flash cs/cc or flash builder. Its easier because they have an accurate code completion + a good designing user interface that is easier to use. If you know how to program enough to just go with text, you should go with flash develop because its free. Notepad++ is good if you have a good knowledge of programming only since its only a text editor without a compiler. All those program do code completion but adobe will always be more accurate because its their thing. Adobe will also save you alot of time by building a movieclip directly from the flash instead of coding. You can also import an image directly into a library and just name it then add it to the stage via code. Or even draw the image directly in the movieclip that is in the library and do animation from there graphically. With flashdevelop for example you gotta set where the path of the image is on local disk by embeding it with code then do everything manually. If you want to animate something with flashdevelop you gotta do it with code. It can be tough if you just started to learn AS3.

Topic: Game Programming / Popping arrays

Can you show some code of that ? I dont understand well what you are trying to do but i think you are doing it wrong.. Erasing a charater with backspace shouldnt be linked with an array directly… Maybe some code would clear it out

There is always way to negotiate too… If you are going to do micro transaction like i said people could take a percentage of benefit. But i personnaly wouldnt go in a project of this kind without having money guaranted to start with. Maybe younger programmer could do this for food :) But my fridge is full. lol

Topic: Game Programming / Any developers willing to help design a game?

You mentionned chess game which is what i fear the most. Making a game AI like in chess to play against in solo mode is more complicate than multiplayer itself imo. You will have many “character” with different stats going around and must logically prepare a couple move before acting. Im having a headhache just to think about it lol.

For a price it depends on many thing, how many graphic there is, how many sounds, what kind of multiplayer this is going to be. There is many way to create a server. Either an executable running in background accepting tcp or udp connection and sharing data among users in a “room”. If its not data-transmission intensive you could go like most kong game “pseudo” multiplayer game and use a database/php to store and receive data. Which cost alot less ressource like a game server with an executable would (You would need a dedicated server to do this and its not under 50$ a month).

Its hard to set a price on a general idea. But As far as i can see how its gonna be, i would personnaly charge 2500$ for this kind of game. And that is no player solo mode against NPC. And that would take about a month to accomplish with all graphic and the idea clearly made. Price could change depending of the time it would take. I make game for children for schools here in canada which are pretty simple game but i have been programming since 25 years. And i charge around 300-500$ for one game which take a week to complet (No multiplayer, no AI, not even a score table). Thats why i think its a good price for this kind of game. Now is it worth it… If you are not planning to make money with it i dont think its worth it. If you have good graphic and are planning to make some little micro transaction to get money back, this could be a very good investment.

This might sound an exagerated price but to make a server is one thing, to make it secure is another. And having a game fully working without bug takes time. In this price i consider that after the game will be made and uploaded people will find bug and i will have to repair them, which will take more time, but is included in the price.

Topic: Game Programming / Need Help with HTML/Coding a small Website $50 (no design work)

I would not charge under 250$ if it was build from scratch honestly and it would take a couple days to accomplish (probably 5 days) just to be sure everything is ok and fonctional.

Using a cms tough, it would probably take alot less time and complication, which could be 75-100$.

The problem is really the cart. You need to have a merchant account with either your bank or a online solution (The cart wont provide you this solution). The good part is if you are using paypal they can provide you that solution for a small fees on each transaction. With that in head, paypal also offer their own shopping cart or pay button which would probably facilitate the task. But i never created a website using a cart personnaly, it could be a bit challenging for that. The web page is no challenge, just take a little time to set up everything (pixel wise) correctly.

Now if i want to take the adventure in this… That could be fun but its really that shopping cart part that i probably wont be able to achieve correctly because i need to have access to the merchant account to set it up. (I never created one but i know i will need your information to set it up and link it). So unless you really trust me (Which you shouldnt because im an online stranger) that wont really be possible :\. The best way is to ask someone physically for this. Or i can build the website only, no cart, you gonna have to do it either yourself or by asking someone you know really or a local company could do it for a fees… But that would still be 75$. Maybe someone with better knowledge in that part could offer you less if they have time to kill.

Oh and with a CMS building your own website, you can add many feature already made on the web called plugins that you can install and use easily in your website… Its alot less time consuming and you can achieve whatever you want.

And i just saw this http://www.opencart.com/

And they says it take only a few minute to set up the cart, could be your solution!

The problem in your demand is the shopping cart. You should check on google how to get one and see the complexity/amount of money you gonna need to spend for one. That plus the 5 page + index and about us page (hope i dont forget any cauase its starting to be alot of page) + the css file needed to handle the same concept on all those page… And im not even starting with the ability to sort your item in order of price which require a database (probably going to be used with the cart) but also require you to code in php or javascript. 3 different language for 1 web site. Its quite a work.

There is a solution for you tough that you could use. First of all buy a domain and a host to get your website (that 50$ will be used for it) then use that website and install a CMS (usually there is some you can install in website). With that cms installed, it will be a point and click game to make your website. And i think there is some that come with cart solution. (Drupal, wordpress and so on are CMS). Anyway hope that help you a bit. :)

Not too sure what is flash builder, but Flashdevelop is free. And from adobe you get Flash CS6 or CC (cc is the new one but paid). If you want it free you know where to go … ;P

i just checked dragon boy game… Thats exactly the kind of graphic im looking for, except horizontal since i just possess a 2d square tile based engine (i could use octogonal and such but it would require more knowledge and time) i got a playable “somewhat of” demo of what i want to accomplish, yet its in construction. Ill show you once we get in skype :)

Redited this post since wolfheat link is up.

My vote goes to DannyDaNinja #1 (For graphic and the fun driving the boat)
Then Wolfheat #2 (for the cool graph and shoot balls)

Shalmezad game could have been cool but skeleton was stuck top left corner and only the exp was increasing thats why i place him in third place sorry!

Topic: Game Programming / Photoshop Problems.

You could use the magic wand and click the part you want to paint then paint in the selection.

When you use the paint bucket too you have this option up top you can play with that will paint only the part you want to paint.

The best way to draw is to make 1 layer for each part of the graphic you make. Lets say you build a character you have head, 2 legs, 2 arms, body, thats 6 part, 6 layer. You could have different kind of hair, make them also layers. Then its pretty easy to redraw or change color of only 1 part since you just have to select a layer. You can also switch hair by just hidding other hair layer etc. Everything in the same psd.

Topic: Game Programming / Gzip to string in as3 (solved, used zlib instead)

facepalm…. 4 hour of searching and all that time i was adding the uncompress method into a trace to see if it was working… i was getting a “undefined” error… now its working as i just uncompressed the data on his own line. Oh god, gotta learn.

Or maybe a way to correctly use php and as3 with zlib to compress/decompress data. Im trying to figure out how this work and i dont get it at all. Im compressing using zlib from php and transporting it manually into flash for testing (going to use base64 to transport into url which is already working). From flash i use the uncompress zlib option but without result. Thats the part im missing, anyone ever did this ?

Thanks for that info i saw flixel was used by stencyl but dont know much about old version of flash. That explain it!

Tryed to set it low for other game such as anti idle which also save localy or idle farm that save localy too and there is no difference. (Anti idle use 150kb of save data which is alot more than this idle game) and take less than a second to save with 1mb max storage. →point stencyl

Also if your game need more storage a screen will show up and ask you to increase storage value.

Yup i tryed saybox solution and the save run smoothly now, i didnt even know about that unlimited storage thingy. Weird bug.

But mouse still lag :>

Topic: Game Programming / Newly uploaded game problem SOLVED :D

Try idle farmer here on kong and use the save and mouse move in the flash screen. (you can try any idle game that arent based on stencyl)
Then try again idle shop and move mouse over screen and save. Or any stencyl based game. (If you got a stencyl game that doesnt lag when the mouse move id be happy to see it)

Just seeing the mouse move over the game i can tell you if its based on a engin like stencyl or not, with or without stencyl splash screen. So yes, its a stencyl issue. The engine is poorly designed. Complex and usefull for beginner that want to make game, but its still a main problem when it come to “professional” game.
