Lu, Bom, and Coal, that game was amazingly fun. I can't upgrade past the Red Knight, but I think I mist just try all of today to do it.

Nice job guys!

AS WARS '08

I was thinking of running another AS Wars, for our third year in a row. To our newer regs, we just have a good time making simple robots that kick the crap out of each other. For example:

Battle 21 - Season 2

I was thinking of just using the engine we have normally been using, with a few minor upgrades. Anyone interested in pursuing this battle again? I was also thinking of having a small mini tourney for artists to design the bots as pixel art.

Just wanted to get a feel for how productive people were feeling (it takes as little as 10 minutes to make one of these bots).

This is SO similar to jmtb02's Luminara! Like, similar enough for the code to be exactly the same. The bullets bounce exactly the same way and it all just seems very similar....

RE: Deaf child

The human race reproduces like an unchecked bacteria culture in a petri dish. Steady, up a little, shoots up ridiculously, everyone dead. With that kind of overpopulation occuring, it's inhumane to produce a child like that. Not only for the child, but for the whole human race. Why can't this couple just adopt a deaf child? There are plenty of those to go around. Instead of needlessly consuming, take pity on a child that would needs you right now, rather than create one who doesn't even need to exist.

I'm up for it :P

avYet another thing that annoys the hell out of me

People who complain about taxes.

And not people who complain about legitimate things like the system being unbalanced, or favouring the rich or whatnot - that's all well and good. Just people who complain about any possibility that the government might possibly put a tax on any of their income at all, and have the nerve to spend it on public services or whatnot.

For a start, pretty much everyone here (I'm basing this assumption on access to the internet, free time and Flash software) will be living in some of the highest standards of life in both human history and the world as a whole. The way people talk about taxes like they're the middle-class equivalent of the holocaust is just silly. I defy anyone to go to some starving, civil-war fractured African village and telling the population there: "Huh, you think you have problems? Thanks to our government, we only get £20,000 a year instead of £30,000!"

I think we can all agree that living in a state of complete anarchy isn't a good thing. Police, the NHS, the fire department and whatever are all positive and pretty much essential things, even if the way they're run might seem a little inefficient at times. It's ridiculous to expect (relatively) high standards of public serviced and next to no taxation, and given both those things, the government to have legal and moral ways of raising funds.

I mean, let's look at our UK inheritance tax. Quite possibly the most hated tax in the country (for some reason).

Now, I'll look at my family as an example. Three kids - we live in a house which is big enough for all of us, in a fairly middle-class or lower-middle-class area. Between this house and other savings, the value of inheritance probably stands somewhere short of £250,000 if I'm very optimistic. How much tax is expected to be paid on that? Well, it works out as bugger all, since tax on inheritance is only paid after £300,000

Even if you do earn more than that, you're not going to be worse off for having an inheritance. You're going to keep £300,000 at the least, and the majority of income after that. Let's assume that you have a big family with five brothers or sisters - that comes to £50,000 each at least, which isn't really anything to complain about. I mean, I might be alone in this, but seeing your loved ones' deaths as a substantial source of income in any case always seemed pretty cynical to me. I'd think I'd have more things to be concerned about than if a portion of inheritance above 300K going to support public services.

The only two reasons I can think of why people complain so much about inheritance tax would be either that:

while most people aren't affected or aren't affected that significantly by it, the newspapers they read are owned by people who are.

or

inheritance has something of a deus ex machina role in most media, which is all well and good so long as you disregard the difference between fantasy and reality.

So yeah, rand over. The general public suck.

Seconded. I hate it when people don't even try to be original... he even used the same aidio artist. Fair enough if he was practising coding a game and using Luminaria as an example, but I think he crossed the line getting it sponsored.

RE: AS wars
I'd be up for that.

Newgrounds Clone
Blatent copy. Discovered it while I was doing my fortnightly shift of monitoring one of the lower school's computer rooms - I saw one of the kids on it, and for a second I thought he'd found a way to bypass the filter and get to Newgrounds, but then I was very disappointed, and remotely shut down his computer. Power is cool.

AS2. I realized that it doesn't make sense to hold a tourney for a coding language that excludes individuals, when you can hold one for everyone. Plus I am not of a fan of AS3, for several reasons not to get wrapped up about in this thread.

As for differences since AS Wars 1 and 2, I am going to make the arena circular so people don't get boxed in to corners, and I am going to expand the gameplay to add one more feature that the player can execute, and making the bombs more deadly (like cause 50% damage loss). So the player, each frame can execute one of the following:

1) Shoot
2) Reload
3) Move
4) Heal
5) Lay a Bomb
6) Insert new thing here.

I've never participated in one of them, I was thinking of going for the last one but it was AS3. I'm glad you're using AS2. If you start it I'll join. :)

I was going to participate in the last AS2 one whenever that was. But then I couldn't be bothered and realised I would never lose :)

Well like jmtb02 said this is an example battle. I've never took part myself but basically a template is given and you have to program your 'robot' to do what you want each turn. Am I right?

Cool Flash thing

I'm being a bit of a topic whore here, but did anyone else realise you could do an Alpha-blend-filter in Flash? Here's what it looks like.

This is definitely being my credits system at the end of my new game :P

Details on how to get it to work in this thread.

While we're on the subject of AS I'd like to throw in a little question: I have a movieclip nested in another movieclip. I've set the parent movieclip to 'Export for Actionscript' and added it to the stage with addChild, so far so good. Now I'd like to know how I can access the nested movieclip. I worked something out with parent.addChild(child) (after declaring child first), but that means the child comes on stage twice, because it's also visible in the parent movieclip. I could delete the child from the parent movieclip and fiddle around with coordinates and stuff, but there has to be an easier way, right? Right?

Website

So recently I've been thinking of starting my own website. I know many of you out there have your own sites, so can you give a newb some advice?

What are good ways to catch attention for your website? What advertising companies/packages/etc would you recommend? Any advice and help is appreciated.

Good content and a viral marketing campaign

Ads are for people who actually NEED to monetise their sites. They shouldn't appear on a personal space unless your bandwidth really gob out of control

Any advice and help is appreciated.

CSS. Use it

Took me 6 wonderful tries to kill him. Got to the skull only twice. Very enjoyable! ^^
I'd love to see more games like that, games with a real NG feel to 'em like that are always real fun.
The weapons were hot. :3

Anyway, Luis, BoMie, Coaly... awesome job. It's a fun inspirational game. I'd love to see more games like it or some form of sequal. :P
