At the moment Im finding the hardest thing with AS3 is actually integrating with flash. Im completely stumped as to how to get my fla file to find packages Ive written as .as files. I dunno theres probably something Ive completely overlooked. So any tutorial which doesnt look at the technical aspect of the code but actually how to link it into your work would be greatly appreciated :)

Alright, I haven't been on the flash scene in almost 6 months so I'm pretty new to flash CS3... which is why I don't plan on getting it for a while.

Although when I do get it, this thread will help me heaps more than AS:Main ever had.

And Denvish, when did you get to level 20? xD

Can I request a tutorial?

If there isn't already one, an Introduction to AS3 would be cool. I'm not too bothered abour memorising functions and junk, but if someone could set out the basics to help people actually understand how AS3 works it'd be great. Stuff like event phases, how classes and code and stuff should be laid out - all the foundation stuff.

Easy peasy, once you know (it took me a loooong time to figure this out). Ok, this is what I've got:

function coinoef (evnt:Event){
if(evnt.target.scaleX > 2.3){ //dont worry bout this
evnt.target.removeEventListener(Event.ENTER_F RAME, coinoef)
evnt.target.parent.removeChild(DisplayObject(
evnt.target))
}
}

The main reason why you need so much more, is that you have to refer to the targets parent, then call the removeChild thing; and you need to show that its a displayObject.

That code also gets rid of the object's event listener.

I think I'll write a tutorial on this...

Yeah we were all wondering how this was gonna affect you.

I might make a tutorial on how to make this game:

Nah, it seems simple. More like a combination of tutorials on variables, events and properties and methods, which we probably either already have or are going to pretty soon.

since almost everyone is using AS2, it would be easier if the tutorials refer to AS2 when explaining the code.
it makes it easier to understand for people who already knows the AS2 language, and i thing its a nice way to learn.
also if someone made a list with cons, and pros about AS2, and AS3 so people can see what fits there needs most.
i cant make tutorials my self because i dont know the AS3 language, and i know its easy for me to say, but its just some ideas for those who write the tutorials.

WHY THE FUCK DID THEY HAVE TO MAKE THE CODES SO FUCKING LONGER?!?!?

So that only people that knew what they were talking about could use AS3... and maybe for the speed increase. But don't forget, for every time they make you do:
addEventListener(...);
function blah(Event){ ...etc...
...they shed an '_' (underscore) from all the properties :)

has anyone made a list of the differences between as2 and as3? i.e. what functions are gone and any new functions?

I think you mean methods. (functions inside a class). Not in the AS3: Main, but there was an excellent one
here. It thought it was great. I'm sure there are others.
