*first post here in over 2 years*

First of all, I doubt any of you remember me, but I've already seen some familiar names on the last page, hello again to all of you :]

Now, it's been two years since I last touched flash, so I wanted to ask you guys the link to that one page here with all the tutorials, I can't seem to find it anymore.

I tried some easy stuff earlier, but I can't even remember how to properly use duplicateMovieClip anymore >.<

Oh Sam, this means we might be able to try and do a game together again. ;]

Before I forget, how many of you actually use AS3 now? There seem to be a lot of AS2 threads around still :P

Feels good to post here again, good times were had here, good times..

inorite, I got all A's on multiple choice's, core science is piss, TA science can be an epic bitch though.

Still got one stupid A in mandatory half-course RE though >:(

I never really got the half course thing, I mean how is 5 GCSEs different from 5 and a half ? lol

Straight forward question and answer subjects like science and math I can ace in my sleep, I like things to be systematic like that. And exams are always easier than coursework/controlled assessment/class work/ISAs A in exam, D in ISA, A* in exam, D in coursework, etc so my grades usually round to Bs.

Usually this wouldn't be a problem but my uncle is a Cambridge grad, anything under an A is a fail.

No pressure

Thanks, but that's not what I was looking for. It was the as: main thread, but now that I know the name I think I'll be able to find it myself ;]

And really? I always liked AS2 a lot more :[

Bleh, I got an A with "Muhammad said this, the bible said this..." etc. Just annoying that a random worthless half subject that I got forced to talk makes the exam certificate look slightly worse :|

I remember your AS wars bot, good times. Speaking of which, I was really looking forward to the 2009 AS wars by gust. How come it never took off? We should do one of those again so we can actually have something to procrastinate for. Being a procrastinator sucks when you've got nothing to do.

We should definitely do one of those again, as long as it's AS2 :D

*sigh* I lost my epic flash skills, so I probably wouldn't fare well, but I can always try.

Wait, that was the last as: wars? Can't you guys do anything without me? >.<
They were the most fun I ever had at coding

I can't even remember gusts, but wasn't it AS3? I sure as fuck was too lazy to learn AS3 just to participate.

Sam: I take it you still haven't found a sponsor? :/

AS wars was epic. I remember just sitting there entranced. I might just make one that orbits round the centre and fires every so often and see if it actually gets anywhere in the competition :3

If there's ever another AS war we have to make sure the fights stay on the internet for more than a year. It's so depressing to go over the old threads and find nothing but broken links and deleted imageshack files. Next time someone's gotta record them and upload to youtube or store them in google code or something. Even just making a mailing list and sending the .swf file to all the participants by email would be good enough. Anything that doesn't end up deleting the files after a few months for space saving.

Why not ask Tom to host them then?

I dunno what he's like with things like that but if the videos aren't too big in file size i doubt he'd mind.

Great idea,

All of the files of all the as: wars till now are probably smaller in size than all the "lolfirstanimationlook" submitted in a day, so if he's interested in the idea I doubt he'd have a problem with it.

Maybe he can even advertise it a bit, you know..

AS2 is a dying breed, put it out gracefully and make the competition be in as3.

I remember one of the AS wars a couple of years ago that I think AuthorBlues won, and everytime he won he would do a victory lap. Haha. Damn, I wish it was 6 years ago again. This forum was good.

Ludum Dare

Anyone ever been in one? They give you a theme when time starts and you have 48 hours to develop a game in said theme. Any language goes. I decided to use FlashPunk after having only heard about it that same day. So i had no idea what I was doing.

Ultimately, my shitty art and lack of game design ideas made me give up on my entry, but at least I stumbled into the FlashPunk framework which is awesome and probably better than flixel (haven't tried it either).

Here's a ~3 hour-ish timelapse of my development and here is the resulting swf

http://dl.dropbox.com/u/3717951/timelaps e_2010-12-20_14-28-44.mpeg
http://www.newgrounds.com/dump/item/7ef6 e94a4c9341eefdca4a81a6eb0943

Hold space to dig and arrows to move.
The theme was discovery and initially I thought about digging for treasure but I wasn't sure how to give people clues because I sure as hell wasn't going to make them dig out every single block of every map. So i gave up.

Maybe, like I said, I haven't been here in ages.

I (along with many others), however, can't code anything decent in AS3, while the coders who know AS3 most likely know AS2 too. So making it AS2 would allow more people to participate and have fun, and that is, atleast for me, the only thing of importance of the as: wars.

In the 2 years I haven't been here all this could've changed though, but this is how I remember it being back in 2008 and what I've seen so far.

Also: all the AS3: wars failed horribly, I wouldn't want that to happen again.

I haven't used AS2 in 5 years or so, AS3 is cleaner and more powerful, there's no reason not to use it.

Fair enough guys, I guess I should try to learn AS3 instead then. I'm quite surprised everyone made the transition, but I guess it was to be expected. :]

It really isn't as big of a change as people make it out to be.
I was pretty anti changing to AS3 but when I decided to give it a try, it only took a couple of hours to learn.
It took longer to get used to of course but no more than a week.
The performance difference itself is reason enough to switch.
