Moofing on: Do any animators out there use mostly the pen tool? Personally, I can't see it being anything but annoying, but I'd be interested to hear of any successful pieces where it has been used.

I never really understood how the pen tool could be useful to me. :P

So I mostly use the paint tool to draw, and the pencil tool to shade.

Haha, dude, if you were around here half as much as you used to be, you'd know that I'm recognized as the second-most-present Flash mod.

Yeah, by far, I'm still around, I just reply little, helping newbies lost its charm. I keep updated though.

Inglor went sick and started insulting Neg! Honestly, the guy was just sitting there, and Inglor came up and was like: "You startin' dickhead?", then he glassed him in the face and kicked him repeatedly when he was on the floor. Then he got a chair and just hit him and hit him and hit him and hit him and hit him. Inglor went totally psycho on that guy, man! If DFox wasn't there I don't know what would have happened!

Wow this thread has moved too fast :(

Hello there Inglor.

Today at college, I was talking to this kid Nick and he's said alot of times he wants to be a game designer. So I said 'Oh well you should get Flash', and he said, "Yeah, I would but you can only make crappy stuff on it", And I kept defending it, but he just wouldn't let down.

He also told me that he didn't have flash because he had some advanced game scripting program, RPG maker 2003 :D. Apparently it's so advanced, you have to draw your own graphics and everything.

You should have told him to stop there. RPG maker is insanely ridiculous to use, and it gives only the basic funtionality to create an MS-Dos style RPG game.

But of course, thats just my opinion.

I would've kicked the kid in the balls. He'd've been incapacitated long enough for me to have time to go get a PS2 with Alien Hominid on it and ask him if Alien Hominid sucks.


No more animated sigs. :(

Well the PS2 version of AH wasn't made in Flash, but it's still a good example.

If he had said it to me, I would have drawn my gun, popped him in the head, took the cigar from my mouth, turn to the camera and say "You've been Flashed."

Would've done, but he can't afford the internet, and also he's not likely to miss college, because then he won't gethis education allowance, and then he won't make money.

That also reminds me. In the morning I went on Armor games and played AH, and this other kid came in and sat with me. I showed him Alien hominid and was like "What the hell.. thats on PS2..?" at first, then after a bit he was like "This game is great! but the graphics are really bad"

That really made me laugh, I didn't really know what to say. I think i'll lend him it on PS2 and see what he says then :/

Shame. I want to see other people I know down there on those days.

Flash is a different feta of kitcsh when it comes to developing games. Compared to C++ it can't compete for instructions per second (heck, it even loses out to Unrealscript in that department). It's slow, it's clunky, supports true-3d very grudgingly and takes up far too much of your processing power for equivalent programs.

But it's easy, widely supported, backwards-and-forwards-and-cross-platform compatable, and never has a chance of destroying a hard drive. Different standards need to be drawn up for it's game development scene, and we're getting fairly close to finding out just what that is.

It's not so much that the graphics are bad its that the 2d scene has sort of caused a rift among the console community... theres people who are hardcore breakthrough technology types that see AH and CC as a step back in the evolution of gaming and so they shun anything that isnt using breakthrough gaming engines and 3d renderers... and then theres the other half that find it refreshing that the 2d scene is alive and well and breaking from the endless see of FPS.

I think that the older crowd tend to side with the second group because we were around when nintendo was around and atari and shit and so we grew up with that shit, yall youngins were still a spunk puddles runnin' down a toilet seat of some club.

Okay, I am just going to start compiling a list of birthdays, and then when we get a good number, I'll post it, and then I'll get another 10 people running after the list telling me they want on, then I'll post it again.

You have a quota to fill? Do you lose Mod privileges if you don't meet it? :p

I think it's the lack of people on summer vacation coming back that explain a drop for September's viewings.

So. Did anyone get Defcon and is anyone still as annoyed as I am with thier servers not working properly? Poor guys weren't expecting so much traffic methinks...
