Hello all,

I have a question about the linkage in Flash. (You might laugh at me. Please don’t ;))

What is it used for?

Thanks!

Topic: Game Programming / Ideal Stage Size?

I set my default dimensions to 450×250px. I figure that its easier for me to use a medium to small screen size. I feel I have more control over it somehow… Really depends on your needs/likes

Topic: Game Programming / Flash Player Performance

Just a little side note to add is that it is also good to create flowcharts before the programming process. I know that most of the programmers around the globe don’t do this but trust me. It helps a lot since you learn to reuse code and not making extra coda that would slow process and add file size.

Sure making flowcharts take time (depending on the application) but its worth it and its helped me a lot! For beginners this is a great method and for intermediate/advanced it is also good.

Thanks for the Full Screen code!

Using the key codes I just finished a ‘’change through your weapons’‘/’’next/prev weapon) controller! All I have to do is add it to my next project! =)

I used E (69) and Q(89).

Ahh. Right, my mistake.

That is a smart thing but you should add that in the instructions incase you accidentally right-click…

Topic: Game Programming / Key codes!

“What I did, personally, is write a very simple .swf file (as detailed in the Flash help files) that traces the key code of any key that you press. Wow, it just doesn’t get any easier than that…”

Wow! Smart idea!

Although thanks arcaneCoder fir the link. I’ll definitely be using that reference! =)

oops! I’m sorry for saying what you said ;)

Anyways, i suggest you follow everyone’s suggestions above but in case you want some Animation-help go to the www.keyframer forum which will aid you in that part. Its a great community for that matter.

For the coding bit either learn AS 2.0 or 3.0 (Flash CS3 or 9 whatever..) since they are the new versions of AS and you can probably do much more. In the Flash help you’ll also see differences between both languages plus they have a guide to choose between the two.

Apart from that, good luck =) I also suggest that on the week-ends you get comfortable next to your computer and learn for around 2-3 hours (also take breaks and stretch your legs).

Anyways, If I were you I would start with vars like I mentioned above

Topic: Game Programming / Bug or cheat at my game

Hmmm, When I played your game I right-clicked and the ‘’Try Again’’ screen came up. That’s odd…

Topic: Game Programming / The Flash Language

My mistake people. You are all correct. But you must agree that AS is easy to both learn and apply. Well at least for me

Ahhh, I see. I must me difficult. Although since now I’m developing a game (fully developed my myself) I might not have the time to join you darkfable. I’m sure you’ll find others. =)

Topic: Game Programming / Scripting tips for newbies

“If you want some tips or tricks on scripting I’m sure many people on these forums wouldn’t mind posting them including me. Just post what you don’t understand or need and you’ll get some help.”

Topic: Game Programming / The Flash Language

I’ve heard that ActionScript is a GREAT way to start to get familiar with other programming languages such as the mentioned above: PHP, Java, Javascript, Delphi(I think), C++, Basic, Pascal(I Think), HTML, XML, CSS etc…

Topic: Game Programming / how do you upload a game?

If you wish to create a game there are basically thre things you need.

1. Story/imagination/goal whatever…

2. ActionScript 1.0, 2.0 or 3.0 knoledge and know how and when to use it

3. Graphics such a sanimations and still images

As I saw on another thread ’’A game can take either 100 lines of code to maybe 50,000 lines of code plus graphics.

Try to look at things for your self.

Topic: Game Programming / Flash games creator?

If you want to start with basic animation (frame by frame) I suggest you download the free ‘’Pivot Stick figure animator’’ (google search it) which is a FBF (Frame by Frame)animation software that basically strings images together.

Topic: Game Programming / Flash games creator?

If you’re a student or teacher I recommend that you buy the educational version which is WAY cheaper than the normal version but you have to give proof that you actually are a student/teacher.

Yeah Flash CS3 is speciifc =)

Topic: Game Programming / Beginner

You can learn Actionscript 2.0 or 1.0 if you press F1 on your keyboard. This’ll bring the Flash help menu. You’ll learn almost everything from Flash there. Trust me

I suggest you start with Vars (variables)
