The new Harry Potter movie broke the record for most tickets sold in a single day, so in honor of this great achievement I will remind everyone to play Harry Potthead, right here on NG! It's a classic that creeps me out when I play it late at night!
Also be sure to pick up this great new t-shirt - Harry is a Potthead and the Sorcerer's Stoned. It's a big hit at tshirthell.com!
While you're shopping for shirts, don't forget the infamous Newgrounds Tank Logo Shirts!
Anyway, work on Pico 2 is progressing and I will soon be posting expanded coverage from the Features page. I want the Features section to not only have links to the stuff I've made, but also provide a lot more fun background information behind the making of the games. I plan to put something together about the making of Disorderly, as well!
I ran into a really annoying stumbling block with Pico 2 this morning, dealing with Flash's swapdepth function. It turns out that when you move back in the main timeline (for example, Pico walks back to a previous screen), it creates a new instance of Pico. This doesn't happen when you move forward - only when you go back. As a result, I have to remove the Pico movie clip and make a fresh one for each screen. I also had to change a lot of his local variables to global, since they couldn't be carried along from screen to screen in the new format. Does this make sense to anyone out there? It sucks. I am just surprised I never encountered this problem before, with all the depth-swapping I have done.
Hey, this week is Thanksgiving, and we don't have a Thanksgiving collection! Submit your movies quick, we are gonna put one together asap!!!
