Hey yall! Another upload! I made this kinda as a learning curve, I wanted to learn more about the API for use after my Helycopta release! So it is just a basic tutorial, kinda bland and boring, it had a song but the song changed its final size from 1.5MB to like 10MB.

If you plan to use this make sure you know a far bit about AS2 before going on, if you want to learn AS2 but don't know where to start then search the net for 'Flash variables'.

If I get a score of over 3 out of 5 then I will add the Advanced area and include more!

NOTE I did not make the API, and a lot of the code is similar to that of the NG wiki, I just liked to implement it to a real code!

Sorry guys I stuffed the code on the Common section and you didn't get to view anything! FIXED

Sorry guys I can't add anymore for the time being... Rest assurred I have stuff brewing!

You imported com.newgrounds.API inside of a function... Why... Why would you do that? And then you double semi-colon'd your code. Oh god the horror


Very helpful for newbies(such as i :D).
the explanations were great, thanks again :)


Thank you good sir!


But my Flash Ad does not displays advertisement.
What to do?


but how do I click on the 'advanced' button in your tutorial
