I've been asked maybe times be people to teach them actionscript and blah blah blah. So I decided to create a tutorial and see what people think.

Some people might not like the music. It's been stuck in my head of a while now and I just had to put it in there. I included a mute button for those who dislike the song but be warned, once you mute you can never go back!

Hope this helps the actionscriptly-challanged .

It was well done, but it could have just as easily been put into an HTML page.
And I've seen that kind of tutorial in countless places on the net, so you're just adding another one to the pile.
Felt like there should have been more to the tutorial, maybe explain hitTest, and the generation of the "enemy dots".

I could have explained those as well but I wasn't going to go all out on my first tutorial and then if it sucked I would have wasted a lot of time that I could have been doing something else. It was just something short, sweet and to the point.

Wow, an as tutorial that didnt suck

Congratulations, you managed to make a tutorial that did not suck.
It may be short, but it does it's job perfectly.

ETERNALGAM3R responds:

I'm glad you liked the tutorial and that you found that it didn't suck, lol. I do agree with you when you say there are a lot of bad ones out there.


Good tutorial, I'm trying to keep anything on NG that will help "Up and coming" flash artists. Thanks for your contribution to this site
