Nice art here, too bad you don't see too much of the actual thing with a 550 by 400 size.

From MC's picture you can see why I said bottom right, because the art extends to the upper left!

And FUCK AS3 but seriously if anyone actually used it we can get you a preloader for it.


This is the game JohnnyUtah and I have been working on.

Is there any way to export everything that's "Exported for Actionscript" in the second frame, AFTER the preloader has kicked in, and that doesn't involve putting everything from your library into a movie clip (which would cause constructor problems)? I'm about to go postal :D

"MindChamber has put together some neato art" you made it sound like he half-assed a few sketches but this looks amazing.

I'm using Mozilla Firefox 3, by the way.

You don't mention which version you're trying to download, and, more importantly, what OS you're using (and any anti virus stuff etc you have running).

But try (if you're on a windows machine) right-clicking and selecting 'Save Link As'.

When you assign classes/linkages uncheck the box that says "export in first frame". Also, I guess your problem is that you're using coding from an external class file. Rather than having multiple frames assign everything to classes so you can add things dynamically:

playBTN.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLIC K, clicked);

function clicked (e:MouseEvent):void{
stage.removeChild(PRELOADER);
stage.addChild(MENUSCREEN);
}

ETC.

I'm already displaying everything dynamically. I know that unchecking "Export in first frame" makes my preloader kick in first. My problem is that unchecking "Export in first frame" makes my classes unusable. Putting everything in a huge movie clip is sloppy as fuck and I'm curious if Adobe put in anything to prevent this fucking mess

AFAIK, no they haven't. As good as Flash is, there's still a lot of bugs and things not working as you'd expect. You could always code back to coding in the timeline rather than coding in external .as files. One thing I've learned about Flash is that there's no right or wrong way to work; as long it all compiles and it does what you you want it to do, you've done it right!

Mindchamber wins. That preloader is awesome. Can't wait to see it in some of the upcoming pico movies. Don't forget to make them available for us ipod video owners.

If there aren't at least 1,000,000 of those, I'll have lost all faith in Newgrounds.

I don't like this primary lack of AS3 support, Tom! :P

Glaiel is doing an AS3 submission, I think, but he probably has his own preloader already.


Sup, bitches :)

I would say, at least add the buttons for the previous pico days, and maybe the loading bar to keep it semi offical.
