Pico Day Preloaders! Apr. 18th, 2008 @ 04:30 PM Reply

If you are participating in Pico Day 2008, the new Pico Day pre-loader is now available! All entries should include this pre-loader!

We have the basic pre-loader available in three formats, depending on if you are exporting with Actionscript 1.0, 2.0 or 3.0:

Pico Day 2008 Preloader - AS1 (Flash 5 - Flash MX)
Pico Day 2008 Preloader - AS2 (Flash MX 2004 - Flash 8)
Pico Day 2008 Preloader - AS3 (Flash CS3)

Additionally, anyone who is interested in using our new NG Flash API (courtesy of PsychoGoldfish) can download the appropriate Pico Day pre-loader from the page where you download the traditional API pre-loader.

The NG Flash API will allow you to run ads and generate revenue from your submission, no matter where it spreads on the web! Please use it if you are interested in running ads in your Pico Day submission.

If you aren't familiar, our API system is still in beta, but it's fully functional and you'll get paid 30 days after the end of the month when the ads ran, as long as your balance is above $50. We will pay via Paypal if you live outside the US... The form for payment info is in the works but it will be available before your payment is due. We've been running the system on a slowly expanding scale for almost a year now and the results have been great!

PM PsychoGoldfish if you need help getting the API implemented in your Flash!

The NG Flash API isn't just for Pico Day - if you want to try it in your games and movies, you can get set up at any time. You can set the ads to "disabled" while you are getting set up and if the system is working, you'll see an image of Pico with a bunch of cash in place of the ad. Once you "enable" the ads, they won't run until you have been approved by us to run them - which should happen within 24 hours of setting up your API entry. Be sure to get set up in advance, so we can approve you before the launch of your submission! In the future, trusted users will be auto-approved on all their submissions. You can't run ads in adult rated content, though. Once your ads are running, your stats will be updated hourly and you can see how much $$$ you're making!

We're still working on making the system easier, as well as better integrated with other aspects of NG. It's EXCITING STUFF, so check it out!

Awesome!! I kind of hoped that it would have been ready a little earlier, as I needed the preloader and I couldn't really get myself to animate before it was there... Might have to skip school next week so I can make it good :P

Revenue?! TWICE AS AWESOME!! ... but not using it for Pico day though. Next time.

I wish I could make a flash, but I can never get it to work right for me. If I ever figure it out by Pico day, I'll totally use one.

Aw, nothing about the Montreal Meet-Up shirt Tom!

I'm still impatient to see what incredible Flash movies and games are going to be released on Pico day though :D

Wow, sounds great. I wish that I had one made, but I don't.

Maybe next year.

However, I will be contributing to Madness Day.

I just realised.

Opera browser + revenue settings = FAILURE!!!
Half of the options are missing.
