I figured I'd ask this here, because most of you have been sponsored a time or two.

About a month ago an artist contacted me and requested a collaboration. Since then we've finished the game, and in my hands I hold the completed Flash. He says he's contacted our sponsor and that they've agreed on an amount. Now he wants the .fla so he can add the sponsors intro.

But...
When I asked to speak to the sponsor, or even who the sponsor was, he refused to me. (I had questions about payment, and other things.)

Should I trust him with the .fla file?

no.
tell him you want copies of all the emails and contact with the sponsor, along with a contract regarding the money. Also, ask him to send you the sponsors intro.

Also, add some code that says, "if <http://website.com/file.xml> contains "scam" then do not work" and then if he does cheat you out of money, simply change http://website.com/file.xml to say "scam" and the game won't work and he'll be fucked :)

I hope it doesn't get to that point though.
&& How can I be sure it's, well, actually a contract?

Thats why you should do it yourself =P. Thats what i do.

As people know, you really cant trust anybody on the internet

Well, there is those certain inter-friends that you make

But when i get my collaborated games sponsored, i tell my coder what sponsor. Most of the time i do Armor Games or no sponsor at all, knowing that i trust them with everything and my coder knows who Armor Games is, they don't worry about it.

Can anybody even understand that?

Probably can't, just ask the guy for the contact info of the sponsor and agree w/ the sponsor your percentage of the $ is sent to you and his $ to him.

What I can't understand *Cough* is how someone can be so close to finishing a game, but not wanting to art the last images? *Cough*

Thanks Citric.
I managed to get the name of the sponsor, and I found the contact information on his site and shot him an e-mail.

But if this doesn't work out, you could always resort to Newgrounds sponsors. Guaranteed, you probably won't get as much money and the ads in your game are pretty annoying, but at least its better than nothing... :/

Gratz, on a side note, does anyone else like writing pseudo code besides me?

also, is there a rule about bumping dead topics? Not trying to act like a bitch, but it's just annoying to see ppl w/ less than 20 posts bump topics that were dead three years ago.

One other thing, I thought of a random idea for a collab (not making it, just an idea) to make a collab of flash ad's) thoughts?

Yeah, according to the rules of what not to do (A "BIG ONE" at that) -
"Bumping any old topic without a good reason and new information."
It's usually alts and bored kids looking to see what they can get away with.

One other thing, I thought of a random idea for a collab (not making it, just an idea) to make a collab of flash ad's) thoughts?

Explain...sounds kind of boring/pointless when you say it like that, because who wants to watch a collab if it's all ads? If the ads were a joke or something then I could see where you're coming from.

Well, you know those flash ad's where you play mini games on em? well this would just be a bunch of ppl making there own fake "flash ad" and it's also a game. So just a thought when I was bored.

I like doing it. It makes me feel like I'm actually making someone learn, rather than just saying "copy-paste this". Even if some random guy comes along 5 minutes later and gives the guy fully functional code without making them learn >_<

Well, sometimes, when a man and a woman love each other very much, they'll plan out their code before actually starting it. When they finally do get around to the real thing, it ends up all messy and full of workarounds, and nothing like how they planned. ;)

MORALE OF THE STORY: If your parents find you inadequate, it's their own damn fault for being such poor planners. :D

Flash Stumbles

Wow, I feel like a complete n00b.

Yesterday was the first day I've touched flash in I don't know how long. And I'm completely frustrated at how much I forgot. Hell I'm just trying to make an intro to something and I can't even figure out how to get some text to fade in. At one point I tried manually adjusting the Opacity of the letters FBF.

I feel so lost, I can remember simple things like tweens, variables, library, MC's, etc, but I completely forgot all the little tricks I used to know to make animating a bit easier.

I know it's kind of frowned upon linking to 4chan, especially /b/, but this is too hilarious too pass up. I've always found inanimate objects with faces to be pretty hilarious at times, but some of these are the best i've ever seen - prepare to lol if you like this kinda stuff.

Damn, nobody looked at it in time and it got pushed into deletion after the mysterious 10th page...a shame too, it was really a good one.
