Hello AS: Main

Back again.

Now I might be able to look though the pages easier since I have page=9999999 bookmarked and was too lazy to change it.

The original AS: Main has been revived? That's the greatest thing since meringue pie!

i like pie
And all the people crying that its being closed look silly now =P

People actually cried that it was locked? Ha.

To Denvish, why don't you split all of the very basic stuff into one section? (ie Beginning AS, _currentframe, _x and _y, etc.) It would keep AS noobs less confused when someone links them to this thread and they don't know what to look up first. For example, I didn't know what localConnection was when I started working with Flash and Actionscript, or what a modulo was.

I'd also put Concepts and Corrosion in with this very basic section, too, just to forewarn people. ;)

After this page, the AS Main is going back to the old rules of no posting spam unless you are posting tutorial links. Denvish, myself, and any other mod that ventures on is going to remove junk posts. Thanks :))))).

Question 0.o

why is AS: Main in the other useful links? isn't the person reading the list already sort of aware of it? XD

denvish opened AS:MAIN again as a seperate topic that did not have this problem:

AS: API Scripted Camera of the Intermediate section now links to AS:_currentframe. When Denvish reopened it, that problem did not occur.

can somebody fix it?

anyways, nice to have AS:MAIN back in action...

The notepad file I have needs a bit of updating, so some links may be a bit off. Thanks for finding that.

@ Paranoia, your link has been added, just under "Screenshots (Bitmap)" in the Intermediate section. I changed the name because people are more likely to look for screenshots than bitmap screenshots.

And for the rest of you, post only if there are corrections to be made on the AS Main, or if you have a tutorial you would like to add. Thanks.

What about caseyo's (formally electricfreak) White Noise/TV Static Effect tutorial? That'd be a cool "other useful link".

Although one of the main reason for the lock was originally my unhappiness with the unwieldiness of the list for Flash newbs, one of the other things taken into account was the fact that too many people posted spam and irrelevant material, meaning that a new page (and a new list, which by itself takes up four posts) came around too often. This is a resource thread, not a chat topic.

- If you have an actionscript question, start a new topic.
- If you can't find a desired subject on the list, read through it again more thoroughly.
- If you still can't find it, then by all means post a request for a tutorial in here.

Besides that, the only people who should be posting in here are those who have written a new tutorial thread they wish to add to the list, or people who have spotted errors in the list links.

Also, if you ARE writing a tutorial thread, be aware that if it covers something already on the list, it may not be added - I know in the past I've said that having more than one approach to a subject is good, but there's no spare space on the list now for dupe topics. It's already bloated enough.
