Thanks for using my music!
For sure! It's a sick track.
An excellent primer for non-programmer developers.
Newgrounds needed something like this years ago! AS3 is much more focused on traditional programming than AS2. Now Mind-Blight presents some very common design patterns every programmer should have in his toolbox. Bonus points for using animation to illustrate some very abstract functionality that usually languishes behind the scenes.
If your game lags, I'm not 100% sure these objects and methods will solve the problem, but they're definitely faster than a typical Flash Array. I'd love to see some examples of use cases (simulating a deck of cards comes to mind for FILO, for example,) or examples of step-through, sort, and search methods which could make these objects as versatile as standard arrays.
Oh well, maybe in part 2! For now, this should be required reading for anyone who uses AS3! Keep up the good work, Mind-Blight!
Thanks a bunch!
I'm thinking of creating a second which focuses on OOP philosophy and AS3 in general. I've been browsing the forums, and a lot of people seem to be scared of AS3 because of its more rigorous adherence to OOP styles.
going to the tutorial section.
I hope so.
If your so amazing at programming...
How come the music runs together if you play the other.
Because you and I are running different versions of the Flash environment. It works perfectly for me and other people I had test it. In other words, update flash.
