Topic: Game Programming / Array vs. Vector: Inline Defining

FlashDevelop can’t export swc’s natively. There’s a plugin available for this, but I’ve never used it myself: http://www.flashdevelop.org/community/viewtopic.php?t=2987

If you can’t get the plugin working you’ll just have to do some googling to find out how to do swc compiling through the command line.

After that’s done just do:

Project → New Project → AS3 Project

Write your classes.

Export as swc.

Include swc in Flash project.

Topic: Game Programming / CodeDrive: New ActionScript 3 IDE with fast compiler

The resource management stuff looks good. Managing assets in FlashDevelop can be a bit of a hassle at times. I’ll be sure to check this out.

Topic: Game Programming / sell your source code?

I agree with Drakim, I can’t see why anyone would pay for code of unknown quality when there will almost certainly be opensource examples of what you’re looking for already.

Topic: Game Programming / How to make Flash games

It’d be a better idea to explain the difference between classes and objects, IMO.

Again, not really necessary. I think it better that the FAQ just linked to tutorials than almost become a tutorial itself.

Topic: Game Programming / How to make Flash games

possibly explain the difference between .swf, .as, .fla, etc. files

I don’t think that’s necessary, it should be covered in the tutorials that are linked to. Adding too much information is just going to clutter the page up.

Personally, I would just call it Adobe Flash rather the Flash CS 5.5. Including the version number means that this is going to look outdated in 6 months time when the next CS is released.

Possibly controversial, I don’t see the point of mentioning AS1 or AS2.

Topic: Game Programming / Designing a Game

I was going to post a topic like this. I’ve started a new game and I’m having a huge headache working out how to lay it all out. I found this site: http://gameprogrammingpatterns.com/ which seems to be exactly what I’m looking for, but unfortunately it’s very incomplete. Does anyone know of any similar sites that has more articles in it?
