This is the longest project i've ever done.... it's a Windows XP simulator. It currently has msn, IE and COD. I'll add more features on it. (Upcoming features: Paint )
(I used some tutorials for the new features and the new features are fine)
Hope you like it.
i'd like to se the finished version
but not bad over all
I think you should make it able to go onto the internet. :s Sorry but only 2.5 stars
It's Pro but only a few can make their project PROject
do not want
this is actually what xp was like, too many memories. sorry! :P
Altogether, for a beginning flash programmer, this was almost decent, however, it lacked any real method to keep the player entertained. The menus weren't very intuitive, as was the case with a majority of the game itself. Most of the things you animated weren't very appealing, and the compressed pictures you used for the OS simulation weren't either. I will cut you a lot of slack because this is a "beta," however, unless you greatly improve the final version, I cannot see it being much better, but only longer. Here are some suggestions from me. The first one is to use variables instead of animating every single frame that the user will see, as I am almost certain you are doing. There are some excellent actionscipt tutorials on NG for variables that will help you a lot if you pay attention to the code and don't just copy and paste it.
Secondly, I recommend that you either take more time with you animating, or get someone else to do it for you (and credit them, of course.) This game looked rather unpolished and rough.
Lastly, I recommend that you learn more in actionscript before you decide to tackle projects like this one. Learn how to quickly and efficiently code things to do what you want them to do. This will help GREATLY, both with time and with the quality of the output program.
Finally, the area of praise in my review is your use of sounds. They sound pretty good, even if they aren't all completely authentic for Windows XP. Good job on that.
Thanks for the tips. :)
