It's nice that there are so many noobs now. Even my noob sc2 skills beat their noob sc2 skills. I JUST NEED MORE PYLONS ALL THE TIME.

Making a game in Flash makes me realize how much I hate the Flash IDE, and love FlashDevelop/Flixel..

yeyness :)

First game in a long time that I actually feel satisfied with. Biggest flaw is probably the graphics, and for that I blame Luis! :D

I like the graphics, I think they suit the game perfectly :(

Also, I've never seen the "User Generated Files" thing before. Is that new, or am I just late to the party? It looks like an amazing way to share levels among other things.

That's actually what I do. I code entirely in FD, and use Flash for graphics, however I am in the bad habit of still using frames when I use Flash which is probably what is throwing me off and creating odd bugs..

Even so, I still love Flixel and have learned so much from it. A wonderful library it is.

If you ever feel bad about the quality of your posts, just look at my first posts. If anything it may make you laugh :(

They are not the worst I suppose, but after looking at them for months I've grown tired of them xP

It's a part of the API (save data). They used it in Time Fcuk, but that's the only submission I've seen making use of it before.

I use frames for some stuff still, but I try to stay clear of multiple frames if I need to reference something that's not in them all.

Spritesheets and copyPixels is one way.

whatcha mean too big? Also not even a smidgen of monies, or nothing near what would make up for the time spent?

(

Too big as in over 10MB, and my best offer at the moment is $1000 which is about a third of what I really need in order to justify the time and effort I put into it.

not to mention to pay my rent

Would it be possible to cut it down significantly and save some features/levels/whatever for a sequel?
Also, how do you mean? I'm not well versed in sponsorships, so I don't know how big "too big" is.


Doomsday-One, working on stuff better than preloaders. Marginally.

i guess there is a maximum amount a flash game can be sponsored for to make it worth while for the sponsor. Although you should be able to get a bit more the game looks pretty epic.

Yeah, nice idea but doubtful it would happen.

It's not bandwidth that's the problem so much as mobility - a big game won't spread to other sites nearly as easily as a small one. Of course, this issue could be resolved with some sort of performanced based sponsorship but I can't even get negotiations open with anone :/
