Dammit code!
I can respect that there are floating point errors and whatnot, but 142.7 - 2.65 is not 140!
Anyone got any tips on how to reduce these kind of problems when working with collision detection? I wouldn't mind as much if it didn't result in objects getting stuck in walls and being destroyed, as well as causing an increasingly ugly visual glitch due to various game mechanics conspiring against me.


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

use fixed point integers? Flash snaps everything to 1/20th of a pixel anyway

The Games Factory 2

Have you all seen this? Is anyone here going to give it a go? I'm not sure what to make of it to be honest.

Now any one can just make a Flash game and submit it to the portal without actually learning anything ?
I hope good things come out of it.

just cause they won't learn programming doesn't mean they won't learn game design

at some point they'll decide its too hard to make it do exactly what they want, and start learning a different language

Yeah I guess you're right, I do hope that new kinds of games come out from this though.

Adobe Student Software

I'm not sure if many are aware (or if its already been posted here).
But now everything can be used for commercial purposes even if its a student license.

It kinda sucks cause a lot of people had to pay full price for the other versions including me :P

"Can I use my Adobe Student and Teacher Edition software for commercial use?

Yes. You may purchase a Student and Teacher Edition for personal as well as commercial use. "

Link.

I was arguing with the lady who sold me my version at the college. I assured her that you could not use it for commercial use, but she was under the influence that i could. Bothered her about it for so long, was not until some time later that i learned you could actually do it. Bit of a shack to my system, kinda felt like an ass for arguing about it for so long. : /

It has been discussed here before, but no harm in reminding people :)

I'm kind of surprised so many of you have android phones...I would have thought everyone, especially Glaiel, would have i-phones.

I just got a droid X with 2.2 and me and my partner (not THAT kind of partner) have successfully ported our next game to it (optimized for phone screen and phone performance) using Adobe Air.

We're gonna see if the Android Marketplace will be worth it or not.

You guys have any pet peeves or advice for releasing something in the Android Marketplace?

Demos are always nice. I think if you keep the price to around £1 I'd be more inclined to buy it. When I see apps for like 50p, I think of it as just spare change that I probably wont ever use. For some reason though, if I see an app for £2.50, I think of it as if every app i buy will be that much so in my head I'm thinking "Shit, if I buy 4, I've just wasted £10".

This exactly sums up my attitude towards buying apps.

I don't pay for my phones, my father does <3

I can still see why people would feel that way, though.

When I touch the screen on my phone, stuff happens!
Normally not the stuff that I want to happen, but stuff none-the-less!

But seriously, I have no idea how my phone has such good reviews; it's so incredibly annoying to use! Still, better than my old phone which would delete messages on a whim.
