I am about to kill my sister. Not only he fits the Twilight loving, highly pitched yelling 15 year old stereotype perfectly, but she keeps voting for Paramore in every single music award. What has the world become? As I type this, I am in her room since my PC won't work, observing the real where I never dared venturing into, alas, she has High School Musical, Jonas Brothers, McFly and Paramore posters everywhere, it feels like a disease eating my soul, where did the real music like Joy Division go?

This generation is so entirely ruined, I feel so bad for the rest of the world.

oh Zyph... I feel your pain. I live in a community where something called, "NOW that's what I call Pop pusillanimous bullshite vol. something", is considered a new release. People can't even be bothered to research what they really like anymore. That's scary. It's just so much easier to do what you're told. The Wal-Mart solution. Thanks so much for that suckas.

People have been saying that since Socrates. I know there are things that I grew up with and loved that are utter foolishness to those that are older than me, so I just accept that people like what they like and don't really care whether or not I give them permission to.

But then how come that every good musician has died (lots at age 27) and there's no musician spawning lately, It's like, there's no good bands forming for this generation, only Disney Channel

Also, flash is fucking killing me.

Must be some pretty easy frame by frame for you to be hitting F7 twice in a row, CTRLZ (ONLY ONCE!) and then more F7 O.o

i'm assuming you're drawing something after you hit each f7


the events are merely fictional, written, directed, and acted out by all who create them

Anyone ever heard of flash not compiling correctly in as3 because of a certain movieclip's presence on the stage? The clip has no code whatsoever, but when it's there the swf won't run correctly, and when it's deleted or made into a guide layer, the swf runs fine. Really confusing me.

Damn it was ages ago since I used Flash for something more than quick tests, what does F7 do? :P

I'm too lazy to open it up.

Also, I post too rarely :)

No errors reported, but here are some more details:

Whenever I add a new clip, I have to remove a different clip for the file to compile...like either delete it from the stage or turn the layer into a guide layer. Weeeeiiiirrddd!

That's really strange, I've never heard of something like that but what exactly do you mean by made into a guide layer ? The layer its on or the only layer within the clip itself ?

The layer the clip is on, basically telling the compiler to ignore that layer.

Anyone wanna draw me a pixel character? Ive sat on my laptop, for like 5 hours drawing. Had a decent idea but thought itd be to much effort to animate and wouldnt be worth it. I so far have repeatable ground and an idea.

I love game design :'(

Ok that with the new details makes it just too weird.
Maybe its time to create a new file and copy-paste all the previous assets excluding that deffective clip that may have started this ?

Problem remains even after copying everything over to a new file.

yes, if you assigned it a class

either
1. the class is defined but not goodly

2. the class isn't defined, flash creates it, and the clip has the same instance name as a clip that is on the previous frame, but is of a different class (flash tries to cast junk around and fails)

I guess its that case since he mentionned it had no code. Interesting though, wouldn've thought of that.
Then again I have limited experience in as3 so its not surprising.

Good luck Bom!

Update on problem:

We found out the problem with crazy as3 - There was a gotoAndStop on the 1st frame of the .fla which prevented the compiler from loading all the dynamically attached graphics before it redirected, so the more graphics I added, the fewer it was able to attach to the stage.

Adding a single blank frame at the beginning of the fla (and changing nothing else) fixed it.

Stupid flash.

I spent the whole afternoon making stencils and graffiti, and plan to make the same tomorrow.

Fucking neat.

I'll post a picture as soon as I find a way to post the one I have in my cellphone, but my computer doesn't seem to be able to find it...

School is totally the best thing ever once you're in a course that you like. I rather disliked high school because i dont care for literature, science, math, etc etc etc.

But when my homework is "Make a website that has flash in it, build your room in 3D animation, and draw a picture" i am just giddy XD
