A programming language doesn't have explicit requirements to handle network operations. The ability to handle such operations in Flash came with AS2 and was vastly improved with AS3, finally touching up on a few last things with AIR.

What was created first. AS3 or the server's security?

You misunderstand. The developers of Flash decided it would be a good idea to restrict the ever-living hell out of anything that could potentially damage your computer. File operations, network access, OS and even basic window changes were restricted to the point of almost nonexistent in AS2, with very, very slightly more relaxed security in AS3.

Basically your program needs to load in an XML file (or an XML stream) from the server you're attempting to connect to before you can do anything with the server in question. That's all client-side stuff.

why isn't there an easy approach to get around this?

because if there was, the entire point of all the current security restrictions in place would be completely lost.

I understand people can create malicious code inside as3 and scripting languages but the big question is why didn't some smart guy handle this problem already?

they can, but thanks to security restrictions, if they do all they can affect is their own client.
also, what do you mean by "why didn't some smart guy handle this problem already?" - what problem are you referring to, and what "smart guy" do you propose is going to handle it?

I mean they have a general formula for catching a pokemon. if they have that why do we have this problem?

Makes no sense.

I vote pikachu.
Though i'm not sure what pokemon has to do with networking.. ?

creating general formulas to pointless things that mean absolutely nothing when that time could be spent else where has everything to do with potential research in a problem that is complicated.

Smart guy would be some random smart guy who knows networking.

Also all these problems sound like difficult tasks research should be able to handle. Developers who make a framework to the point you can't use its 100% full potential because its "hazardaus" is like saying the programmers who use as3 are too dense to understand the reprocousions for what they do.

If you do research and understand your language these problems shouldn't happen.

For instance in java there is something that safe checks your files for you automatically programmed into the language. But if you want... You can call the reflect package and completely override their safe checks call then you can type this @SuppressWarnings("unchecked").

Not saying as3 should be like java. But i feel like the developers should treat their programmers like they have brains and know how to handle hazerdous stuff if they want to.

Just my 2 cents.

Why would somebody want to do that? I'm not sure I actually understand your question.

If you do research and understand your language these problems shouldn't happen.

The thing you forget is that there are people who intentionally develop applications to harm your computer or your experience with your computer. I could, if I wanted to, create an AIR application (packaged into a nice litle exe) that would completely lock you out of your computer while it deletes all your files. Mint and I collectively discovered this. I showed him AIR, he developed an application that would lock everything until you pressed a "safe key", I found a way to bypass the Adobe installer, and permanently deleting local files is a cakewalk.

That and the whole XML thing is what Adobe is trying to prevent. Nobody wants to open an exe and find out that within a few milliseconds their entire system folder was removed.

For instance in java there is something that safe checks your files for you automatically programmed into the language. But if you want... You can call the reflect package and completely override their safe checks call then you can type this @SuppressWarnings("unchecked").

That just tells the compiler to not show you small errors and other warnings. Doesn't mean they're not there, it just means you no longer know about them.

Not saying as3 should be like java. But i feel like the developers should treat their programmers like they have brains and know how to handle hazerdous stuff if they want to.

AS3 is actually a lot like Java in quite a few ways. My Java teacher, for example, knew most of the AS3 code I wrote (just a quick example class extending Sprite) because it simply looked very similar.

Ok im obviously not explaining things on a clear enough level.

1) If you can get around a server's protection without some serious hacking what is stoping some random fuck who has google from programming the virus and doing the same thing.

2) What if your an expert in cybersecurity and know for a fact your software can handle any malicious attack and want to override all the "problems" they programmed to pop up. At some point all these "problems" didn't exsist. They are meerely just programmed popups and gui interfaces created by exceptions being thrown and passed through stacks.

3) If you know programming. These "problems" are not problems and don't exsist. But you know YOUR CODE works.

4) Someone can program servers and cybersecurity better then someone else. Not everyone has top of the edge shit the meere fact you can find a way to still latch on to a server without much hastle (as in your capable of doing it without serious hacking) Means the protection is pretty fucking shitty to begin with.

I didn't know i had to level this shit out.

Those popups and shits are just execption handles being passed through stacks from some underlying layer. If you understand all the stats and what that execption handle means. THose problems are not problems. Because you know how to fix them without the language doing it for you.

The language is meerly a tool to get the job done. It is not the do all by all say.

Oh, are we not talking about AS3 specifically, then? Ohhh, that makes more sense.
What's stopping them? Their lack of knowledge. If you know how to get into a system then you can get into a system. If you don't, you can't. Security's pretty black and white on the basic, beginner level.

If you can get into a server without hacking, then you need to contact that server's admin ASAP because they sure as hell aren't doing their job. For everything else, there's pen-testers. And Mastercard. That, too.

2) What if your an expert in cybersecurity and know for a fact your software can handle any malicious attack and want to override all the "problems" they programmed to pop up. At some point all these "problems" didn't exsist. They are meerely just programmed popups and gui interfaces created by exceptions being thrown and passed through stacks.

If you're a security expert, then you know for a fact that anything and everything you make isn't completely hack-proof. The difference between you and the client is that the client doesn't know this.
Also, if you were a system admin you wouldn't be using a language like AS3 to run your server on.

For the sake of argument, let's say you want to make a server with AS3 and use it for commercial means (please, for the love of all that is holy, don't do that)
Then you would need to account for all the policy file stuff, yeah. There's probably a way around it, but you'd most likely need to create a custom Flash client on everyone's computer specifically tailored to bypass security restrictions.

3) If you know programming. These "problems" are not problems and don't exsist. But you know YOUR CODE works.

They're annoyances, to be sure. Necessary ones, but annoyances nonetheless. It has nothing to do with your code, but how the language your using works.

4) Someone can program servers and cybersecurity better then someone else. Not everyone has top of the edge shit the meere fact you can find a way to still latch on to a server without much hastle (as in your capable of doing it without serious hacking) Means the protection is pretty fucking shitty to begin with.

I'd have to agree with that, and again I would contact the sysadmin immediately to tell them they're not doing what they're being paid to do.

Your arguements don't really have any solid information to stand by.

Your new argument is.

"oh shit better tell the guy who programmed it to do better!"

Instead of "hey maybe as3 could be a better language".

as3 only affects as3. As3 does not affect the security in the server.

So if as3 itself. is the one blocking and throwing exceptions for someone ELSES problem. Why is it doing it?

Its because as3 isn't intended for professional use most likely.

I know nothing about the language. I don't know why its used.

But from your last statement its obviously not a very powerful language and shouldn't be taken very seriously.

So ih ave no clue why your nolonger defending the language and what your purpose of the arguement even is.

Just kinda seems like your arguing to arguing because you want to be "smarter" then me.

But its newgrounds. I should of expected that.

Huh? What argument? We're arguing? About what?
I'm confused o.o'

You asked for information and clarification and I did my best to answer your questions.

"oh shit better tell the guy who programmed it to do better!"

When it comes to servers, that's usually the way of things.

Instead of "hey maybe as3 could be a better language".

Oh, it very much could be. Operator overloading would be pretty damn useful, and maybe the ability to use multiple cores.
It's pretty powerful as-is. I suppose if I had to argue something, that would be it.

as3 only affects as3. As3 does not affect the security in the server.

That's the idea behind the whole XML thing, anyway.

So if as3 itself. is the one blocking and throwing exceptions for someone ELSES problem. Why is it doing it?

There's no problem, it's just some security hoops you need to jump through.

Its because as3 isn't intended for professional use most likely.

Every language has its uses ;)

I know nothing about the language. I don't know why its used.

It was originally created for animators, specifically designed to get animations and a simple button or two on the screen quickly. It's evolved from that to a fairly robust cross-platform game development tool.

But from your last statement its obviously not a very powerful language and shouldn't be taken very seriously.

Again, like every language, it has its uses and its pitfalls.

So with some googling i found a stackoverflow topic.

With some answers to actionscript 3 and asking questions about server side programming.

http://haxe.org/

Does everything actionscript 3 multiplatforms and serverside and it performs similair to how as3 runs.

If they can do server side scripting so easily why is it such a HUGE PROBLEM for as3?

Are you telling me that the problems that are so huge in as3 have to be in every single other language every existed because that the rule of thumb of programming?

Or is it quite possible that the people who developed haxe know a better implementation to server side scripting in comparison to as3.

I will go with haxe knows a better implementation.

There were more posts about as3 and server side scripting. There is actually software already created for people who want to use as3 in server sides scripting.

I bet the guy who made that server knows a clean and smart way of handling all those security risks.

Oh wait by your logic thats impossible. Those problems will forever exist.

Well, kinda.

I'm saying until you jump through a set of security hoops, network operations are restricted to the point of almost nonexistent.

Which is completely true :P

Network operations as in HTTP? Because there are no security hoops to jump through for that at all. How do you think the Newgrounds API works for example

you need to load in the XML policy file and add the Security.allow-whatever line, or else it won't work outside a sandbox environment.

Nope you needn't worry. Unless you mean putting a crossdomain.xml policy on your server but that will be required for anything.

Trust me, network comms are absolutely fine in Flash, you don't have to jump through any unnecessary hoops :)

Plus the static Security class, which is protecting the client's Flash Player, somehow. You need to add a security exception for that website in the client in order to use it as well. So both client and server need something for them both to communicate.

No I don't think you have to do anything like that. I actually make gambling games for a living and we have to connect to back ends which generate the results and account info etc and we never have to do anything with security in terms of allowing Flash to connect to a server with HTTP

Oh, wait, maybe if the Flash in question is on the site itself you don't need to allow security access in the client? That would make sense.

Nah you don't need it. You can try it yourself by making an empty flash which just loads google.com. Upload it on newgrounds and it will work just fine :)

yea he did something simple. But using algorithms that already exsist is easy. I wan't to make my own from scratch and trial and error.

I used heuristic searches in mine because i read it in a technical paper for an agent that plays checkers. But i chose that particular paper because i want to revolve my AI's around the technique being used so i wanted to practice the easy stuff first.

so i looked at the minimax algorithm.

I basically implemented that algorithm without the calculus. (the minimizing and maximizing).

Also i didn't make a tree. I didn't know what they are. I am currently learning trees in class right now.
