College has made me realize that you can get a lot done in 5 minutes. And there are so many 5 minuteses in a day, it's unbelievable! Instead of sleeping till like 3pm, I wake up early(ish) to get hw done, and I'm free for the rest of the day. I'm getting more coding done for this game than when I was at home for xmas break

No life helps too

I'm running off such little sleep right now and it's taking its toll. For some reason when night rolls around I'm wide awake and motivated to do things so I just stay up.

Honestly, for me it's just because I have school two days a week for 4 hours a day and not much homework.

That it does! Though I am starting to get bored of having no girlfriend and no job. I might change that at some point.

also, Sanders was right about Eclipse in Linux. It works pretty damn well! I'm trying to see if I can get an objective-c compiler working in it so I don't need to download a Mac OS for VM.

I have Dota 2 to keep me company...*sob*

So far, the most annoying part of this game is making things take time to occur, like transitions and animations. I'll make something work, but it doesn't look fluid at all, so then I have to add a timer or tween to it. And then everything breaks, so I have to backtrack 10 steps and rewrite all that with timerevents or onUpdate/onComplete tweenlite functions.

Ah yes, but the most rewarding part IMO, a little smoothing out goes a looong way, I just finished a cutscene editor mode in my level editor the other day, twas painful to get everything working right but SO worth it, really takes things to another level.

I guess that's the only way you EU folks can win games any more since the russian invasion. I've won every game recently that was a 5 stack. I've only played with brazilians, never a russian, and even they aren't too terrible at my current skill level. The ones I never want to play with again are all americans >.>

I assume this is running poorly for everyone else, as well?
I know how to fix it so it'll run at 60 unless you really abuse it, but it's gonna be a huge pain in the ass.

testing a framework i'm building. Yeah, I addChilded a bunch of squares and they do nothing except sit there looking... Er... Pretty, I guess.

the framework looks and works as close to the regular AS3 syntax as possible, but it uses blitting. I also added a few extra features I always wondered why Adobe didn't add themselves.

the reason it's so slow is because every child added to the stage becomes as large as the stage. I figured it'd be slow, and to counter it i'll simply reduce the size of each BMD to whatever it needs to be (no larger), and optimize the update function some more. It's just going to be a massive pain in the ass, and adding and removing children will probably be pretty slow until I can figure out how to optimize it.

haha, maybe? :P

I just started this yesterday, so there's a lot of crap I haven't even started yet. I got an event system working (MUCH faster than the regular one, and it pretty much works the same) and most DisplayObjects done, with an Object auto-numbering system behind it all.

well, I finished a small library for network and file management (appropriately named "Network and File Manager") and am close to finishing two more. One for I/O, and one for 3D.

This is an entire framework, not just a small library with useful tools. There's a damn good chance i'll never actually finish this one, but it's really fun to play with when I have no internet connection.

12 FPS (Flash 11.2ish on Linux, which has shite performance)! I too am working on a game framework. I might even eventually finish it and/or make a game with it. Right now mine performs pretty well, it just doesn't have too many features.
