Topic: Game Programming / Literature vs. tutorails

Keith Peter’s Foundation Actionscript for Animation is a good read. I personally prefer video tutorials, though.

Topic: Game Programming / Best Game to Start Out With?

A point-and-click shooter is a pretty easy thing to start off with. Just a bunch of buttons, really. :)

But snake works, lol.

Topic: Game Programming / TransitionManager help?

I’ve never used TransitionManager so can’t help much there, sorry. But you might be interested in Tweener, a very nifty class which is both simple and powerful at handling tweens on ANY numerical value.

An example of using Tweener would be something like:

Tweener.addTween(m1_mc, {x:200, time:2, transition:’easeInOutBounce’});

Topic: Game Programming / Lighting Engine!

Wow this is cool. I’d be interested to see if you could somehow replace the raycasting parts with vectors or similar. That would defiantly speed things up. :P

Topic: Game Programming / Ways to create platform game?

Flash games use “engines” all the time. Papervision3D, APE, Fisix – to name a few. Nothing wrong with it whatsoever, just make sure your well in your right to do it (ie. check the licenses or ask for permission).

Topic: Game Programming / How to create a bilingual game?

Depending on how complex you want to get, you could take a leaf from what most PHP developers do and have a big array of all the common language elements.

languages = new Array();

languages['english'] = new Array();
languages['english']['welcome-message'] = 'Welcome to the game.';

languages['spanish'] = new Array();
languages['spanish']['welcome-message'] = 'Lol I don't know any spanish.';

//then for text fields and stuff:
textField.text = languages['spanish']['welcome-message'];

Topic: Game Programming / pure AS vs Flash IDE

You could just export all your graphics and what not as a SWF and load them into your game (that was made with Flex or FlashDevelop). That works fine.

And I agree. FlashDevelop really needs a Mac port.

Topic: Kongregate / Suggestions

The tag system (for searching games n stuff) is great in theory, but doesn’t work. People keep abusing the tags by adding their life story to it…

It needs to have some sort of limit. Maybe so only people level 5 and above can tag games? I don’t know. But it’s not working at the moment.

Topic: Game Programming / Socket Server

I want to make online multiplayer games, with Flash. Yayzors.

Lol. I know I need some form of socket server that I can connect to – but does anyone here know where to get one?

Hosting one myself is out of the question, and I’d much prefer it if I didn’t have to pay.

Your damn right beggers can be choosy.

Topic: Game Programming / ? on C++/Flash on Structures

If you understand OOP you should be running as fast as you can, away from AS2. Head straight to AS3 and do yourself a favour.
