Thanks. That happened to me when I was in flash. It dosent normally happen, and I dont think it the actual flash, I think its just if your CPU or RAM it near 100% and/or you keep clicking or do something which uses quite a bit of CPU or RAM it can crash.


This is very good for beginners like myself. I hope you do do the action scripting one as I have a good idea for a game bout a roleplay I'm in on Gaia.

Keep it up!

Thanks. You can be expecting the actionscripting tutorial in about 2-3 weeks- we are going away for a week and a bit and I don't know if I can bring my laptop to work on it. It might take a bit longer as it will coveer just about everything I know how to do, complete with working examples and downloadable .flas.

Good for basics

Its a good tutorial for people learning the basics here in Newgrounds. Lotsa dudes who don't know twat about flash, you show easy but vital things to people who's new to flash. Perhaps you should change the name, is a bit misleading. Try something that lets yoou know it's just for beginers

Great basic tutorial altogether!

Thanks. I might make an actionscripting tutorial next which covers buttons and mouse avoiders to advanced physics engines and RPGs/platformers.

Not bad...

Although some of the things weren't perfect (in the blood part, you said to convert the blood to a movieclip and then shape tween, which you can't do), it has some good information for people who are just starting to use Flash. I would suggest making it so that the music doesn't play more than once. (The music plays again every time you go back to the menu, which caused me to quit out a few times because of how annoying it was getting.)

But you had some good stuff there, and I bet a lot of people benefited from this tutorial. Keep up the good work!
