New Years superstitionssss

hah my friends always give me shit for this and maybe im partly insane.. but its always been passed down to me from generation to generation.. anyway one of my 'superstitions' or whatever during new years is to make sure i have cash in my pockets... according to my grandmother and my great grandmother before that ... the legend/or whatever is that if you head into the new year with cash in your pocket, you are ensured a financially stable year ahead of you....

maybe im forever paranoid but the last 2 years ive done it ive done well... maybe its a placebo effect. maybe not.. but whatever the case i thought id share that with you allll

*BTW it ruins the superstition if you have credit cards instead of actual cash... also it has to be yours.. you cant borrow it from someone as the clock turns 12.

It wouldn't hurt to give it a try, you have nothing to lose. Unless your walking around with more than 100$ and get it stolen.

My wallet have never been as well filled as it is right now, much thanks to relatives who are bad at giving Christmas gifts. So, I suppose that I am going to have a pretty good financial year then :D

I think that I will bring all my money over to my online poker account the same minute that the new year kicks in, if I go broke you owe me Luis!

This is a great example of how maturity affects your judgement. The spirit was actually the worst movie I've ever seen in my life. Please don't waste ANY money on it.

I don't see how it's an issue of maturity, they're entitled to like it just as much as you're entitled to dislike it. I get a kick out of the shitty Mario Brothers movie they made, even though that is technically one of the most used examples of a bad movie.

Opinions are like assholes.

Like every now and then, randomly, large FLAs will export with horrible, ear-piercing scratchy versions of the sounds I want them to play, and it requires a whole lot of luck and restarting flash to fix the problem. It sucks cause it means on every export I have to make sure EVERY sound works right. Ugg. Pain in the ass that someone should fix.

well thats never really happened to me by accident. though once just because i was curious i turned down the sound quality a whole bunch (8kb), and the sound was so bad it hurt my ears. maybe you did the sound quality on the stream audios, but forgot to set it for the event audios. sometimes people forget that the audio set quality for the two are in different places.

No its nothing I did. I always always always turn both to 64 kbps stereo cause I'm an audio guy.

It's RANDOM when it makes it screechy so I know it's a flash bug.

I've never had screechy sound problems in Flash...

Actually, i did once, but,
that's because i set a SoundTransform.volume property to 75, instead of 0.75.
I know it's probably nothing you did, but,
that might explain the problem a little.

Sound like it will be a stellar year. Since I live in the future for most of you, except for the Ozzies and Kiwis (if we have any) I'll be able to wish you all a happy new year in exactly 8 hours and 10 minutes. I will let you know from the future how the year 09 is so far.

No I don't override sound settings cause I needed one sound at a much higher quality than the rest... override will override EVERYTHING and not checking it will only override what's set to "default".

I know what I'm doing kid and I know for a fact that this is a flash bug and not something I'm doing wrong because of it's sporadic behavior.

I find it's usually best to find a LAME setting that Flash allows for the library entry to 'use imported compression' so it then doesn't reencode any sounds.

In fact it's best to leave as little as possible for Flash to do. Don't use it for compression, if possible don't do graphics in it, and for the love of pizza, don't code in it.

Is that a joke ? I seriously can't tell.
If it isn't a joke, your saying that we should do the graphics on some other program and then just import them into Flash, but what about the coding? Are you supposed to type your codes in word or something then just copy-paste them ? And how would that make any difference ? The coding I mean.
If it was actually a joke, I feel stupid :P

So you can seriously recommend using Flash for writing code when there are other IDEs like FlashDevelop and whatnot? And lets not forget using Flex as a compiler instead of Flash.

When you're dealing with a lot of graphics and working with an artist and stuff it's a lot easier to have that all in the same file. I'm not used to either of the alternatives.

As an IDE though, the only thing wrong with flash's editor is the autoformat, everything else works as expected (although error reporting could be a little better).

Is there even a mac version of flashdevelop or haxe out there? Is it possible to use those in correspondence with a library of graphics that an artist makes for you in flash without having to edit it? Is using one of those easy for someone who doesn't know how to code at all to compile the code I give them? The artists I work with usually have some version of the fla they can test their graphics in, and a lot of them no next to nothing about coding (with the exception of bomtoons)

I made a Christmas Flash Also!

I hate how I spent a good Month+ on it and the damn power went out a few days before I wanted to submit. So I had to be added as coauthor instead of submitter. :/

I'm a little disappointed I'm all the way in like 23rd place, but that is still okay I guess.

Damn you Luis and how your Pixel Christmas Flash you made In like 2 days does way better. :(

The memory use, cache blows, gay project view, no build tasking, no class/symbol view.

haXe is portable, FD is a Windows whore.

Is it possible to use those in correspondence with a library of graphics that an artist makes for you in flash without having to edit it?

haXe pretty much simply injects code in a given SWF so you can resolve linkage names or reflect across the display list.

Is using one of those easy for someone who doesn't know how to code at all to compile the code I give them?

You'll need some kind of build task, at the simplest a batch to grab the Flash graphics SWF and inject the code.

Obligatory drunken post

I just got home from celebrating new years just a few mins (by car) from where I live, but yet still in the middle of nowhere (I had no reception on my cell phone, I got tons of text messages the moment I were heading home). So yeah, happy new years, although I suppose that most of you still are in the bad old rotten '08 ;)

Meh, I would've written more if I weren't so tired.. Anyway, have fun you crazy americans when it's your turn :) Over and out.
