I think I fixed it. Post here if you still run into the token problem.

Topic: Platform Racing 2 / -1 Glitch

Ya, this only seems to effect certain versions of the flash player. I’ve updated the game with a small change that might fix the problem, or it might not. Log in and see what happens.

Topic: Platform Racing 2 / April Fools Day!

What? The controls have always been that way. Time has just begun rotating in the opposite direction within the darksphere of truth, so the controls only seem to be reversed.

Topic: Platform Racing 2 / THIS IS A SEVERE PROBLEM

Ya, it’s fixed. I installed a flood controller to prevent anyone from publishing so many levels all at once.

If you’re using AS3, look up mouseEnabled and mouseChildren. They be what you’re after. Yarrr.

try just putting “_visible = false;” on it’s own, without the onLoad function.

Topic: Platform Racing 2 / Down platform racing

My webhost decided it would be pretty awesome to accidentally cut my server from the internet, and then take all day to fix it. Something about a new switch blocking a port.

Topic: Platform Racing 2 / Platform Racing 2 error...

It means there are two accounts with the same username, and the game doesn’t know which one to use.

Topic: Platform Racing 2 / Platform Racing 2 error...

Alrighty, it should be fixed for future signups. It’s amazing what seemingly impossible problems will pop up sometimes… I’ll still have to go back and fix the accounts that this happened to, so post your username in the game if you want me to fix it.

Wheeew… that’s the one error that I thought I’d never actually see. What’s your username in the game?

Topic: Game Programming / AS 3.0 or 2.0?

Ya, AS2 is probably better for what you’re after. AS3 pretty much doesn’t work at all unless you’re going with the object oriented approach and writing all of your code in external classes.

Maybe going to that link will DESTROY YOUR COMPUTER, or maybe it will just give you a sneak peak of my latest game. Your call.

Topic: Off-topic / AT&T rigged their own contest.

I am severely angered!

http://jiggmin.com/att.php

Not to mention that they blocked everyone’s ip address who voted for Banana Barry too many times. (The rules say you can vote AS MUCH AS YOU WANT) Towards the end of the competition I was having to walk over to EKU to vote because both my ip and my roommate’s ip were banned from the site. My mom was banned too, so she would go up to the library to vote. Even with all of the bannings, we STILL won the contest. We’re not supposed to be able to see the poll results though, so I guess they figured no one would notice if they just lied.

Throughout the entire competition, “GUNPLAY” was in all caps. The other two were not.

People voting for “Grey Shades” were also ip banned from the site.

:/

I’m not sure what you meant by import, but have you looked at loadMovie()?

Topic: Off-topic / Comic Book Challenge

Super awesome news… My brother Joe Grahn is a finalist in this year’s Comic Book Challenge. The winner of the contest gets their series published.

The top 50 finalists were flown out to San Diego during Comic-Con so they could give their pitch to a panel of judges. The judges whittled it down to the top 10, and my brother is one of them. Now the top 3 are going to be selected based on an online poll at attblueroom.com, which is where I need your help!

More info here:

Watch the videos of the pitches and vote here:

The comic thus far is here:

You can apparently vote infinity times in a row… hitting enter over and over again seems to work best for rapid voting. :P

Topic: Game Programming / hittest - rectangle and circle

You can do a bitmap based hit test. http://www.tink.ws/blog/as-30-hittest/

Its performance probably isn’t that great, but it’ll work with any shapes you can throw at it.

Out of curiosity, what was the problem?

Topic: Kongregate / Avatars

Right now Kongregate Racing gets the user’s avatar by downloading their profile page and extracting the url from that. That’s a bit of a waste, and for some reason this doesn’t work for everyone. (my best guess is that the kongregate_username variable doesn’t exactly match up with their folder name — If I hard code their name into the game then the avatar loads fine.)

Is there a better way to go about getting people’s avatars?

Topic: Kongregate / Suggestions

How about some scavenger hunts? Having some secret things hidden in various games would be neat-o. The first person to follow all of the clues and challenges and make it to the end gets cookie. (And a million dollars.)
