Topic: EMP Game / Your Ideas and proposals

Your own alliance should always show up with it’s own color in the political level view. Right now if you are in a smaller alliance you just show up as “other” which is annoying if you are sharing boarders with another alliance. Ideally there should be a way to customize which alliances take precedence so that you can key your own map to the alliances that are relevant to your own part of space.

Topic: Akaneiro / Suggestions and Ideas

Two simple things I’d like to see are:

1. Auto-attack should stay off when I turn it off, I have to toggle it off every time I log in.
2. When you pay-down threat levels, they should stay down. The farther you get into the game the more annoying it gets going back to those zone 1 levels every day just to get threat low enough to get good gear, it also dissuades doing later levels more than once.

Topic: The Last Stand: Dead Zone / large warehouse level map bug

In the large warehouse level map (the newer one), one of the lockers in the room with the van always comes up empty. It’s the locker closest to the front of the van. At 1st I thought it was just bad luck but I’ve been keeping an eye on it for a while now and after 20+ runs, I’m pretty sure this is a bug.

Topic: The Last Stand: Dead Zone / Deathmobile upgrade still possible?

Even with instant returns, you still need to wait for things to upgrade; so, in that since a regular player can still keep up with someone w/ the death mobile, it just means that that they can level faster making the game easier/ less time consuming for what-ever stage of the game they are at. It also doesn’t make those high-level warehouses and hardware stores replenish any faster which is still the limiting factor for anyone willing to log-in 4-5 times a day. The only major advantage it imparts is that it allows you to keep your whole crew at home to defend against PvP attacks which I find are pretty rare until you’ve reached at-least lvl 20.

Topic: Game Programming / What is the best Programming language to learn to make games?

If you want absolutely simple and forgiving, I’d say AS2 is best (even more idiot proof than AS3). It ignores a lot of the common things that make other languages hard to learn like accurately declaring variables, building a graphics engine, and memory allocation making it quick and easy to pick up. This makes it good sandbox to learn the basics with like figuring out how to run loops, functions, etc, because there are fewer things to go wrong. It’s a good place to start, IMO but it’s horribly inefficient, and transitioning from it to another language will take some work because you’ll need to pick up the additional skills that it does not require.

Topic: Game Programming / Question about making stable save files in AS2

Is there a way to use a .js to convert a flash storage file to a more stable state, or does that only apply to Java based games.?

Topic: Game Programming / Question about making stable save files in AS2

I am currently using this method to generate save files in AS2, but I’ve had several beta testers complain about their save files disappearing.

var saveData:SharedObject = SharedObject.getLocal(“XXsaveFileNameXX”);

Is there another way to create a client-side save file in a way that won’t be deleted by a browser’s automatic clean-up features?
