ActionScript 3.0 :: Object Oriented Game Programming?

Mar 9, 2009

I'm a programmer familiar with object oriented programming, with experience in C++, C# and the MS Visual Studio development environment.

I've been tasked to create a web based game using Flash CS4 and ActionScript3. I am new to Flash, ActionScript and game programming. I have never used previous versions of Flash or ActionScript.

The game will be a single player role playing game. The player will have the ability to create an avatar. The player will move the avatar from screen to screen based on button clicks or drag and drop onto objects in the current screen. Players must register, and player information will be stored in a database backend. Additonal data will be saved to the backend database during game play.The saved data will be based on player actions in various screens, and in some cases data entered in a form on a screen.

For a first pass a stick figure avatar and screens containing simple buttons and simple objects to drag the avatar to will be sufficient. I would like to store data in a database tracking date/time information, e.g. date/time each screen is entered/exited.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Understand Object Oriented Programming

Actionscript 3 :: Recommendation For Object Oriented Programming Preferrably With A Focus?

Jan 22, 2010

I know there are a billion questions regarding what books are best and I'm sorry for posting another, but all of them see to have an orientation to a language I am not familiar with.

My problem is I learned to program before OO became big, then I stopped programming for a few years, moved into web design, moved into coldFusion, and now find myself in PHP, actionScript and FLEX.

I have muddled along for quite some time, but I am really struggling with my understanding of OO and would like a good book that will help me out with it. If that book is geared towards Flex and AS3 then that would be awesome, but if it had no language specified either I would be happy. I'm just not sure how reading a book oriented to Java or whatever is going to help my understanding of AS3.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Creating Full Site With Object Oriented Programming?

Dec 29, 2010

Any links to any tutorials that teach how to create a full site with Object Oriented Programming? I am one year in now on Flash and AS3 and think I am getting pretty good at the basic AS3 principles and creating dynamic sites. Now I want to start migrating over into OOP so that I can create the more dynamic and browser friendly Flash Sites, but OOP is much more complex and would like a good example or sample of how to finish a full site under OOP coding.

ActionScript 1/2 :: Programming An Event To Apply To Multiple Objects?

Oct 21, 2004

I want to group some objects (movie clips) in a way allowing me program an event that applies to all of the objects.To be specific, I want to group some buttons in a video player. If the mouse hovers over any one of the buttons, that button's animation will jump to frame 2. How can I do this?(I figured there is probably an easier way than programming each individual button to jump to frame 2 on mouse over.)

Flash :: Timeline Code To Object Oriented Code - Access Instances Already On Stage

Jan 12, 2011

As stupid as my question might sound, i have spent the last 2 weeks reading oop books; but could use some guidance. I have a flash project that is basically a supped up slide show. On the stage i have the following: main_mc (instance name = images_mc) = movieclip which holds "pictures" ui1 (instance name = ui1_mc) = user interface that allows user to draw on picture (when drawing is enabled) ui2 (instance name = ui2_mc) = activates invisible hit areas (buttons) on select pics, when hit area is clicked, we jump to another pic in the main_mc.

I accomplished all of this on the timeline, but am updating the code to OOP. I am having A HELL OF A TIME trying to figure out how to store references to the instances (images_mc etc..), so i can control them from varying class files. I have found it is easy to control the instances from the documentclass, but not from unrelated class files. Example: images_mc.stop(); works in document class; but ovieclip(Parent).images_mc.stop() doesn't seem to work from any class file.(ui2 class file for example);

ActionScript 2.0 :: Functions In Object Oriented Classes

Aug 4, 2009

I'm new to the object oriented stuff and I'm trying to learn how it works. Here's what I've started on - it's led to a few dilemmas. I have one flash file and two .as each with one class. In the timeline of the fla file, it reads:
ActionScript Code:
var FileObject:ScriptFile = new ScriptFile();
function onEnterFrame(){
FileObject.CallInput();
}

Call input is a function in "ScriptFile.as" that calls another function in "Input.as";
ActionScript Code:
class Input{
public function Input(){
} public function keyListener(target:Number):Number{
[Code] .....

In output, when I press Left, it will say -5 over and over again, and I'm trying to add to xpos value but that isn't happening.

ActionScript 3.0 :: How To Make Horizontal Object Oriented Scrollbar

Feb 2, 2010

I am using an Apple PowerBook g4, Flash CS4, ActionScript 3 and I am trying to develop and design my own site and truth be told I have no idea what I am doing nor how I will put all the pieces together. But at the moment I am trying to make a horizontal scrollbar using the Object-Oriented Scrollbar: Part 1 tutorial. Basically all I have done is used x instead of y within the actionscript code. However, the only error I am getting is with the import caurina.transitions.Tweener*; code. What comes up in the compiler error report is:

Location) Symbol 'scrollbox' , Layer 'Actions', Frame 1, Line 1.
Discription0 1086: Syntax error: expecting semicolon before mult.

The caurina file was downloaded the from Tweener Documentation and Language Reference site [URL] and I used the tweener_1_33_74_as3.zip Stable version 1.33.74, Actionscript 3 (Flash 9+) Featured Jun 2009 34.4 KB file. After placing the unzipped caurina folder into my project folder and that not working I have placed in Applications/Adobe Flash CS4/en/First Run/Classes as I read within the forum post "Re: Object-Oriented Scrollbar Part 1" posted by AKA//TRUTH on Wed Jan 20, 2010 12:30 pm.

ActionScript Code:

I've tried a mix and match combination, ultimately, when I test the movie, the scroll bar works, but I see no content to scroll through. I have attached my project file.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Object Oriented Game - Referencing Dynamic Objects

Jun 26, 2009

I'm doing this object oriented game and I create a bunch of 'boxes' via a for loop

Code:
Select allfor (var z=0; z < numOfBoxes; z++){
var box:Object = new Object();
box.mc = new Box();
box.mc.name = "box"+z
box.mc.x = Math.round((Math.random()*(530-box.mc.width)) + 20);
for (var i=0; i<boxXArray.length; i++){
[Code] .....

I get my random amount of boxes scattered over my stage (I haven't put in any checks to see if they are touching). How do I 'name' these boxes so I can reference them later? Say I want to move the .x of boxA in another function? Is there a simple way to call them box+z instead of just all as box? (Then I can run them through a loop later to talk to them).

ActionScript 2.0 :: Apply A Class To An Object OnStage Without Linkage?

Jul 1, 2009

I have a series of movieClip extension classes that are currently being applied via linkage in the library. I'm trying to find a way to loop the stage at compile and apply the classes to objects with specific instance names instead.

As it is now, if someone duplicates the library instance of a clip on the stage (which happens a lot), it loses the linkage. I could memo the entire dev team and tell them to re-apply the linkage anytime they dupe a clip, but I'd really rather not ask that of everyone...

After exhaustive searching, I'm still coming up with nothing for an actual AS2 solution to this. The only workaround I'm even finding is to create a variable reference to the clip in the class constructor, but I do not want that.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Interactive Select Object & Apply Function

I've got the functions worked out, and can apply them easily as along as I hardcode the object instance names in the functions. However, I can't figure out how to allow the user to select a particular object and then pass the instance name of the selected object to an appropriate function.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Apply Hittest Object / Point Condition To Only One MovieClip?

Jul 9, 2011

i'm breaking my head over something, and will be very grateful to any creative ideas:

I created kind of drag and drop game: i have cards that should be placed on squares.

in case the card touches any square, the square changes it's color. the problem occurs when the card touches 2 squares at their middle: they both change their color.

in fact, I need that only one of the square will change it's color, and it should be the square that the card touches it with "the most of him". i thought of using the hitpoint but i know it won't work, because in case the card touches both square in the middle it won't work..
