Hey! To start this decade right, we believe Newgrounds should be ad-free for EVERYONE. For this to work, we need people who have the means to become paying supporters. For just $3 per month or $25 for the year, you can help this happen and get some nice perks!

For the month of January we have disabled ads on all E-M content. We need 198 people to reach our January goal of 3,000 active supporters. If we hit that, we'll continue with a new goal in February!

Please check out our Supporter Upgrade and consider coming aboard!

This is a resource thread, it doesn't need saving. What it DOES need is for people to use the links whenever possible. There's no point creating AS: threads just for the sake of creating them, and there's no massive urgency for new ones. The original reason for this thread was to provide easily linkable answers to the most commonly-asked AS questions... which it has done very successfully, and it's gone beyond that. But bear in mind that the main point of this thread is not to show off AS skills, or to reach a specified number of topics - it's to help newer Flashers whose skill levels are not up to yours.
If you're going to post in here, at least suggest a subject for a new AS: thread that either hasn't been covered already, or could do with being covered from a different angle.

Hmm I wonder what new AS's will occur as a result of Flash 8. Like dynamically drop shadowing and glowing would be cool.

Thank you for those threads, it's been something I've been putting off for a while, but I intend to create an API 3D game soon, so I will be studying those in detail.

AS: Actionscripted Tweens

It has a little less practical use than most of the others, but I still think they are fun to use and are easier than writing your own easing functions like in Joelasticot's elasticity thread.

Also how do you make a person go into a house please help.

Set the MC to _visible=false; on hitTest, or if you actually want to see him inside the house, you'll have to create a new environment.

If you have any more questions about this, please start a new thread. This topic isn't really the place for general questions.

No, because that's ridiculously easy. Select nothing, press T. Drag to make a text box, and write in it. Then in the left-hand end of the PROPERTIES bar (CTRL+F3), select 'Dynamic' or 'Input' from the dropdown. If the textbox needs a VAR, enter it in the right-hand end of the PROPERTIES bar.

Flash does have Help files, you know. Press F1 to read them.

That's not even actionscript either, it's related but it is seperate.

Anyway, is anyone else having problems with the Newgrounds profile windows? For me they are undersized, same with my grounds gold account.

Thats true, does anyone need to know flash printing? Because I don't see anything on printjob class etc. here.

Response to As: Main 2005-08-21 11:19:12


Flash printing.. I can use it but I'm not very good with it, I just know I can use it if I need to. I can't remember the difference between printBitmap and print either.

Print isn't used often because it's a bit weak, no reason to use it in most cases, but it can be cool in dress-ups and such.

Adding Rilstic's (sp?) jumping engine to useful links might be a good idea, seems lots of people are after that sort of thing.

Plus the protect your swf (lilJim) link doesn't work.
