Topic: Game Programming / Visually orientating screen in AIR for android

Alright, so I’ve been trying to at least break into app’s using FlashDevelop. One thing that’s been driving me up the wall though is getting the test to reflect the coded orientation of the screen.

Everything is sound with the code, in rotating the screen – I test using the 480 preset for the resolution (720 × 480). Is there any way to get my actual display to reflect this change, it’s been driving me bananas.

Mobile sizing as a whole is driving me bananas, so if anyone has experience with this in FD I’d greatly appreciate it. Designing fluid graphics to work with different sized screens won’t be dreadfully difficult (just annoying), but just understanding how the sizing works as a whole will greatly benefit me, as I can’t grasp how any of this nonsense works within FD, especially since I can’t manage to actually rotate the screen to mirror the code, manually set the dimensions of the app, or get an accurate readout of the dimensions half the time.


this.stage.setAspectRatio(StageAspectRatio.PORTRAIT);
this.stage.setOrientation(StageOrientation.ROTATED_RIGHT);

There actually is a way, but I don’t personally know how to do it

Solsund is a friend of mine, I’ll try to figure out what he did. (You’re presented with the option to download it after you beat the game, and it downloads from Kongregate)

Voting Ends: 10.15.13 5PM EDT/2PM PST
Contest voting procedure: As voted on in the previous thread, voting will work as followed:



Taking applications for an assistant


Alright, so I’ve proven lately that I desperately need help running GiTD to keep everything running like clockwork.
I just can’t handle it all on top of my other responsibilities outside of Kongregate, hopefully everyone can understand that; Though, I wholeheartedly apologize for this trainwreck of a GiTD, there really is no excuse. I knew I couldn’t take it on, and I should have taken a step back.

That being said, I’m looking for someone to help me with GiTD, tasks would include:
Help deciding on a final theme
Helping threads go up in a timely manner if I’m unable to do so
Closing out threads at time limits for entries/voting ending periods

If you’re interested, do not post here. You may discuss it here, but if you’re interested, send me a whisper on my profile. There aren’t a lot of qualifications, just be a regular here on the forums, and have an understanding of the GiTD contest. Just include a little bit about why you’d like to help the contest, and we’ll go from there. At the end of the voting period I’ll go through all of them and choose somebody to be an assistant for the contest.



Very important, please read

Voting Rules:
You must vote for a 1st place and a 2nd Place. The 1st place vote will receive 2 points and the 2nd place vote will receive 1 point. The person with the most points will win. Using alts to vote will result in disqualifications. Remember to make it clear who you are voting for. You cannot vote for yourself.

Past and present participants to the GitD may vote without being questioned, but all others may have their votes rejected by the GitD organizer and/or past and present GitD participants if those votes are deemed unfit.

What that means for you, the ones entering the contest:
You will have free reign to enter and vote if you’ve previously entered a contest. However, all newcomers may be scrutinized and have their vote thrown out if it is deemed unfit by other contest participants, and those who have competed prior.

The second place voting rule, was that every person who submits a vote must submit feedback on those votes for them to count. Now, that option didn’t win, but I would personally like to see more people giving detailed feedback on entries. Now, I know it’s not that easy, life happens, you may not have time. I just wanted to throw that out there.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.

Hehe. Get enough sleep last night Mossy?

I haven’t had a good nights sleep since I started college. I’m averaging 3-4 hours of freetime a day, depending on how much sleep I sacrifice :D

Also, correcting what UG pointed out, there’s lots of flash-made games on Steam.

GitD #35 voting period has now (officially) ended.

(Times will probably always be off for “official” endings due to my schedule with college + work. If I haven’t posted it’s ended, and it’s past the time, don’t worry about it)
