ActionScript 3.0 :: How To Build Grid Of Identical MCs In Multidimensional Array

May 17, 2009

I'm trying to build an 8x8 grid of identical movieclips, in a multidimensional array, that I can then access by row, and play each in order. So far, I can get them into the array, but I'm having trouble playing each item in a row. Basically, I have 8 more selector buttons in another array, and I added an event handler to each of those, and I want to use the index position of each selector button to play the corresponding row in the first array.

//The first Array
for ( i = 0; i< 8 ; i++) { //create a row
beatsArray[i] = new Array();
for (var j:Number = 0; j<8; j++) { //add 8 instances to the row
beats = new Beats;

How To Build Bot For Online Flash Game

Nov 20, 2010

There are a lot of flash games that ask u to do repetitive actions. An example would be FarmVille or getting statistics on on-line poker game. What is the best way to create an interface between what you see on the screen, a bot's algorithm and clicking of the mouse. So basically, when I'm playing a texas hold'em on face book and if I get AA I want the bot to click all-in. If I don't get AA I want to fold. This is just an example, not the actual strategy. Or another examples would be routing tasks in farmville. So basically. It has to grab a picture of the screen. recognize patterns and convert them into an input of the algorithm. The output algorithms would be clicking on some other (may be same) patterns.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Different Ways To Build Maps/levels For Flash Game?

Jul 20, 2009

Ive got some high level questions about vector graphics. From what I understand, when you draw stuff in the Flash IDE, you are creating vector graphics. Is there any way to view the actual XML (or whatever code) that is generated 'under the hood' ? Is there any way to save the drawing as a .SVG file or something? Ive looked at a few free SVG drawing tools, but I'm wondering why not just use Flash directly, instead of creating my vector drawing in a separate program, and then trying to import it ?

Im thinking of different ways to build maps/levels for my flash game, and right now I'm thinking that building the levels out of vector shapes seems to offer the best features in terms of fast/easy collision detection, fast map creation, small level size, etc.The problem is, once I draw a level in Flash, how do I break the individual shapes apart (rectangles, lines, circles, whatever), into useable pieces I can use in the code? For example suppose I simply draw a big rectangle for a super-simple level. How do I grab the coordinates of the corners for use in my actionscript code? And how do I determine that the shape is a rectangle, and not a general polygon or just an unclosed set of lines?

For example I imagine the SVG code for a rectangle looks something like this:RECT 120, 60, 400, 500

But where can I grab that text from using actionscript, If I drew that rectangle in the flash authoring tool?

ActionScript 3.0 :: Build A Hidden Object Game - Accurate Collisions With Mouse

Oct 27, 2010

I'm currently trying to build a hidden object game, but am having difficulty getting accurate results with where the mouse is clicking. I thought using hitTestPoint to check whether the mouse's coordinates were actually colliding with the pixels of the shape would work, but this produces the exact same results as simply checking for a MouseEvent.CLICK event. It seems to be returning true even if the pixels being clicked on are transparent (i.e. just background/not part of the shape). Is there any way to check whether the pixels being clicked on actually contain the image of the object being searched for?

Flash :: Flex - TFS Build 2010 Call An Ant Script And / Or Build?

Mar 31, 2011

In TFS 2010 build, I have a new build and I want to call an ant script that builds Flash. How do I call the ant script? Also How can I compile the Flash directly? I've seen the Power Tools and this question but it doesn't help me as we don't have TFS 2008. I can't find any documentation on how to use the power tools except the 1 sentence on the bottom of download page saying to create your build the old way and import it (which isn't very helpful). I've installed the power tools on the agent computer but I don't see any new options in the Toolbox when I'm designing the build flow.

Actionscript 3 :: Flash: Many Identical SWFs On Same Page

Jun 7, 2011

I am trying to make a web page that has multiple of the same SWF on it. I am having a problem with it being stupidly slow loading (download time is fine though). I have a 4x4 table in each cell there is a swf file embedded in an iframe. (Note: 4 X 4 table => 16 SWFS).

My AS3 code is very simple:

import flash.display.Sprite;
import flash.system.System;


Is there a good way to embed multiple identical swfs into a web page? Why are IE and Firefox struggling so poorly? I suspect it has to do with the fact that both IE and Firefox each only have one thread to run plugins (Flash) in. I have a similar app written in AS2 (not written by me, I just have the swf file). It is much more complex but it loads orders of magnitude faster in IE and FF. Is there a reason that AS3 pins the browser when AS2 does not? How can I embed multiple AS3 swfs into FF & IE 7 without pinning the browser? Is there a way to make an application that is more light weight?

Flash :: Instantiate Objects With Similar/identical Functionality But Different Properties?

Aug 25, 2011

New to AS3, long time programmer. Essentially I am creating a myriad of objects, all of which will have the same functionality, although the properties will vary between each object, including the artwork. I believe they will all be movieclips as they will be interactive and I believe they will be moving.

I am wondering what the best way to create these objects are. I am assuming that I create an object class with the functionality and properties, I'm just unsure how to instantiate multiple copies with different properties, if that makes sense.

Flex :: Creating Ant Build Script To Build Only When A Dependency Was Updated?

Apr 14, 2011

I just started working with ant a few days ago. Right now I have a general buildall.xml which should call each project's build.xml. Because some projects depend on each other, I need to rebuild some other projects which depend on it. This isn't a problem--I'm just setting the depends property of the target. However, ant is always building the dependencies, even when the files haven't changed.Let's say project1 has no dependencies; project2 depends on project1; project3 depends on project1, 2; project4 depends on project1, 2, and 3; and so on.I could hack a solution which looks at project K, and checks if project 1 .. project K have updated files using uptodate. If so, then run the target. This is messy and appears unnecessary.

What is the cleanest way to implement this?EDIT: So I decided to just hack in a bunch of targets, "check_projectK" where it does the uptodate checks on all of its source files, its build file, and the build files of the 1 .. K-1 projects. Due to dependencies, this is always handled correctly. However, this is still a large amount of copy and paste for a large workspace.

Eclipse :: Retrieve Build Information After Build Completes In FDT?

Jul 30, 2011

Using FDT, when I have a debug configuration with several operations in the launcher chain and the final launcher opens in Flash Player, how can I retrieve the build output from the console once the build is complete and Flash player is running?

It seems that once Flash Player has started the console clears to make way for the application's trace output, but I need to be able to look back over the events and build times for each item in my launch chain while Flash Player is running. Is there a setting I can enable to either log my build output to a file or to preserve it in the console?

Edit: I know I can still read the info when building normally, this question is specifically for building with the debugger.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Can Identical Buttons Listen For Same Event

Mar 19, 2009

I have two buttons that listeners for the same event that have identical instance names?For example, I have two buttons which have the same instance name: imageOne.Can those identical buttons listen for the same event? I tried, but only one button responds to the event listener .why do I need two buttons with the same instance name that listens for the same event?because I have a looping scrolling panel of thumbnails, and when you have scrolling panels, we all have duplicate panels inside for looping since I have to have two identical panels grouped together to do the loop, I have multiple buttons with the same instance name.and these buttons listen for of course I can rename the other half of the identical buttons with different instance nams, but a problem arises when i want to use an if statement to check to see if that image is already loaded.for example, say I image1 is already loaded, and someone clicks identical thumbnail that has a different instance name, ti would be too complex to write an if statemen to determine whats loaded.

Random Words From Identical Arrays Without Repeating

Feb 13, 2011

I'm trying to build a bingo card, that will show random words in different locations each time you reload the page. It's 5x5 grid. I'm planning to set up 25 arrays (for each text field on my card), containing lists of the same 25 words. I have a code that pulls random words from each array into my text fields, but I can't figure out how to prevent the words from repeating on the card. A different word should be pulled out from each array.

Here is my code so far:

var words1:Array = ["word","table","lamp"];
var words2:Array = ["word","table","lamp"];
var words3:Array = ["word","table","lamp"];

ActionScript 3.0 :: Collision Detection Among Identical MovieClips?

Jan 7, 2011

is there a way to do collision detection amongst identical movieClips? The movieclips have all been added to the stage from one symbol in the library using AddChild().I've attempted to create 2 different arrays for them and push them into each array as they are added to the stage so that there was a means of comparing them. When I perform the collision detection, Flash thinks that the movieClips are in constant collision with each other!I used trace ("bang") to test the collision, and the output window starts tracing "bang" infinitely and doesn't stop, and none of the movieClips are touching each other.
