Good find, thanks!

The only reason I don't want to use haxe is because I don't know it, plus I don't really have a need for it.
ANYwho, I think I'll have the premise similar to his, as I was thinking of doing tank-like robots instead of boids, but boids would be easier to both implement, and program the AI.

First off though, killing off freelance projects :(

I recently had what seemed like a flawless, if not slightly illegal, plan to get a spotify premium account for free. I used to work in a football (soccer) stadium and we couldn't hand the fans bottles with lids because somehow they had apparently developed the skill of hurting people with them.

I saved up about 25 lucozade energy bottle tops from where I used to work every time someone bought a bottle of lucozade so I could enter the spotify competition loads of times. I did so over about a week. Not one win. Now I bitterly use the 10 hours of listening per month and avoid the songs I really love because of the 5 listen restriction per song. Still, spotify is great really.

I'm proud for being there in those times and making the forums a shittier place with my 12 year old stupidity. as for the as wars, they were indeed possibly the best thing we had on these forums, for the progammers at least.

How many of these old regs still visit? These are the ones I remember most:

liam
authorblues delta lucca
ninja chicken (my arch nemesis!!),
INGLOR
denvish
claxor
toast (i'm pretty sure everyone used to rip on him from being 12 and I called his home one day and talked to his mom... unless I'm thinking of somebody else),
jtmb02
mogly
hashbrown (im pretty sure he was actually brown, like an arab or something)
and khao

Anyone remember playing this online shooting game I was developing with Insignia?

There are a few who pay $500+ for those, so they make up for all of that.

The last humble bundle raised like a million dollars.

The beauty of "pay what you want" is that, despite getting some people who will pay $1, you'll also get others who might pay $1000.

but when i said the average people pay for it, what i'm talking about is the absolute average including the people who paid 500 and the ones who paid 1. So in the end it's the same as if every user paid nine dollars and someodd cents

So...is that a bad thing?

I mean they've raised like 1.5 million dollars so far.

Rather what happens is they make a lot of money from the community rapidly. It goes a way to depart from the model of selling each person a thing, and instead simply supports the people doing it via interest from the people who appreciate it. It's crowd funding, except it seems to work better than Kickstarter etc.

HAH, I came back here for completely unrelated reasons and you guys are starting an AS war! Awesome! I think the ones I hosted mine are still up properly.. somewhere. =P

Anyhow, the reason I'm really here is a bunch of us are making a dev network on google+ over on FGL (if you've never done anything on FGL, you probably won't be able to access that thread). Google+ is really sweet and I'm really enjoying my dev feed on it so I thought I'd share. It keeps them all so nicely separate. =D

If there is anyone from old times (mainly AS war fools <3) who can't access that thread but still want to add me, PM me and we can swap G+ info =)

Can you share a link to the AS wars you hosted please? It would help out for me to plan out the upcoming ones :)

And I'd be down for the FGL dev thing in Google+, but I still haven't submitted a game on FGL.

Holy shit, did I rock up in the middle of Nostalgia time?

Coincidently, I came here wondering if anyone has abused Apple's new found support of Flash, and done any development with iOS?
I'm currently working on a project where we're creating an iOS game, and realized that Flash can export for the product. If anyone's done any work with it and know about the process of getting it into the app store, or how well app's produced through flash goes against one done in xCode (iOS SDK) that would be awesome.

Here are the ones I hosted:

AS wars: racing

spamtheweb appears to be gone and that's where all the battles were hosted =(

Much <3,

Flash app performance on the iOS is shiiit compared to xCode from what I've heard. Try getting 20+ things moving on screen without laggin, even when blitting...
I mean, if all you need to do is a website app or just a user interface, it should do fine. But don't bother with anything more than a pacman game... :/

@Arby: Aw shucks. Well, I'll check out the threads and see what I can get from them! Thanks anyways!

Oh lol, I'm looking back at these AS war threads and it appears i didn't even know how to program XD XD XD Let alone make a framework.

Seriously, how was I ever that bad? ^_^
