Great tutorial man! This will really help me out when i am using Flash. 9/10 You could go more into detail and fix some collorful backgrounds:) Otherwise , it was Fantastic!!!!!!!

A Nice Tutorial

I really like the layout you have. Nice, simple graphics, nothing too showy... Although I wish the buttons had been a slightly different color than the text, for a bit of clarity. Thankfully you got rid of a lot of the distractions lots of authors put in their submissions and you kept it simple. I would have liked a mute button though. Also, on the maze tutorial, you could have reduced the memory on the example maze, as right now it looks pretty rough and bumpy, which I find unappealing.

As for understandability, the screenshots are high-quality and explain things very well, and the Extras and Script buttons were helpful. However, it bothered me that you didn't explain the script for the watcher or chaser. When you break down the script, things such as radians and atan2 aren't noobish at all. These are the kinds of things you learn in trigonometry, which is pretty complex material. Even a simple explanation would be helpful. Also, there are four lines of code on the watcher script that aren't necessary at all; they just assign values to variables that are never used.


I love you :D cool flash :D weeeeeeeeeeeeeeee I enjoy :D


You helped me A LOT in this tutorial, and taught me a lot of other cool things.
