Erm... Why do the trees have faces?


Trying to post in topics that have no replies. Trust me it's a horrible feeling when nobody replies to your topic :{

If any of you AS/programmers feel like helping a guy out, by all means.

Have you tried tracing out each item in your array to double check they actually are CellData?

Use vectors instead of arrays, that way you have type safety and the possibility to use "as" to cast the type.

Or replace

loadArray[i] = RST2Data.data.gridArray[i].slice();

with

while(RST2Data.data.gridArray[i].length>
0){
loadArray[i].push(RST2Data.data.gridArra y[i].shift() as CellData);
}

They are all [object CellData] after I save (and I checked the SharedObject Array). And they are all [object Object] when I check the same Array during loading.

I'm going to try your suggestions Claxor, thanks.

No luck using shift(), now it just returns null values.

Sorry for spamming, but interesting fact: The variables that are in the CellData object are saved, and are still correct when I load the array. It's the functions that don't seem to work.

Okay, implemented the RegisterClassAlias (I think). Now I get a load of this:

TypeError: Error #1034: Type Coercion failed: cannot convert Object@29403269 to flash.geom.Point.

when I get my local SharedObject.

Last post I promise. The Register Class thing totally works, although for some reason it keeps throwing 1034 errors at me. Slowly getting there it seems.

Something about not having "proper protection for teenagers"...

I find it rather silly that Google wants feedback on its social networking project but won't even give the primary age group that uses websites like Facebook and Twitter access to it.

I think that's because that group of people wouldn't be able to give them any kind of real feedback, the majority of current active Google+ members (or at least the majority with any more than 10 people in their circles/people have them in circles, actually using the service) are social media experts and technology evangelists, that sort of crowd, Google will probably drop the age restriction when it goes public but if a bunch of 11 year olds jump onto it and don't even end up using it because they don't understand the value or get pissed off after two seconds because one small thing didn't work, they would care about whether it is in beta or not, they'd simply leave, rule it out and tell their friends it's a load of bull, which is far worse than making them wait a while.

I don't think it's silly at all, Google+ already has 10 million users even though it's invite only and has an age restriction, it has been stated before (and apparently forgotten by everyone) that it isn't intended to compete directly with Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Tumblr etc but rather form a new pseudo-niche, I say pseudo because it isn't really a niche per say, there are a lot of people that fit the demographic for an active Google+ user that uses the site actively.

If we look at an alternate perspective (branched from what I said about wanting useful feedback) it may also be that while they may not publicise it they may secretly just want to keep Google+ "clean", which sounds ridiculous I know but considering the current extremely positive and mature reputation that it already has it isn't that far fetched that google may wan't to keep it that way by whatever means necessary. Though that's just one idea of many possible ones, there is likely no truth at all to it but it's fun to discuss.

Well i think by making it exclusive atleast beta-wise they raise the alure of it and also like you said, maybe they find the feedback of the older crowd more worthwhile, which is fair.

We'd do that for the redesign but then there'd be nobody to give us feedback <3

It would also mean you'd all have to work on the redesign instead of sitting around playing Street Fighter and drinking all day.

Am I going mad, or is the music in this tv ad a variation on the Star Light Zone music.

Also if Star Light Zone isn't your favourite zone you don't know shit about Sonic.

Wow, had to dig this thread up from the third page :S

Anywho, Spotify is available in the US now I hear and since I've had the premium version for a good while now I've stacked up on invites. Anybody interested in one just drop me a PM with the email you want to use for your Spotify account :)

I was clueless that you guys didn't have Spotify, it's really big over here.

Who's up for an AI challenge?

I could make a simple robot interface thingamajig, pass out the API, and then you people write script for your own robot using the API, then send the files back. I stick in all the files, make a series of arena challenges, and then all your robots battle it out against each other!

That would be pretty awesome! I've always seen these done but never had a chance to enter one, and it would be a great learning experience too.

Do it :D

Alright, well as long as there's interest, I'll do it. Hopefully in the next 2 weeks.

As for using your source code, I think I'll be writing it from scratch, as that is also in haxe, not AS3.

The format I'm thinking of using is that each robot gets a budget. Then you can put on sensors of different types, and also weapons and engines, as long as you fit in the budget. Then you can place them on the robot however you like etc. etc., and then work with them later on.

Aight, will make a thread when any of it's done.

P.

Found thread.

I wrote it in haXe so it doesn't suck. Bots can be done in AS.

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 :(
