Hi, I'm TheZsterBunny.

Usually I post on the Turing or Spam forums, but I've decided to become more involved with flash.

Now, I've been using flash for a long time, but only recently have I been introduced to programming in Actionscript. I can do basic commands (stop, gotoandplay), but I would really like to learn more about this language.

If anyone would like to help me learn actionscript, I would be very appreciative.

-ZsterBunny

p.s. its not just for me. my compsci teacher plans to have me teach flash in his web class next year.

p.p.s. i know that there are tutorials out there, but none of them seem to help explain the syntax.

i could help, although i havent done flash in a long time (about a year now)... it would really help if you knew java since actionscript is heavily based on java...

btw, my footer was done in flash Wink

wouldn't the opposite be true then?

I have both ICS 4M and [web page course] this year.

would you recommend learning actionscript and then java, or vice versa?

what i meant was that if you already knew java that would be nice because then learning AS would be a breaze... not that you should learn java before actioscript...

Well, actually they both derive from C/C++ syntax, so Java is more a sibling of Actionscript than a parent.
Be patient Z, try :

The early tutorials seem over-simple, but go through them.

thanks

-edit-

reading into this, it seems that Actionscript 2.0 is not too different from turing. except for the fact that they got rid of the stupid 'end ___' things people needed.

Whatt?? ActionScript 2.0??

Is this a different program that can stand alone without opening flash mx?

The_Triangle <- no, Actionscript is just the programming language used in Flash for Flash games.

TheZsterBunny <- I could give you some aid. Start with: http://www.geocities.com/thefastfiles/ - the only flash tutorial I actually went through...

Now there are more advanced ways of programming in flash, object oriented including special file types: .as

I would suggest to start object oriented programming right away, because now I regret that I didn't, and I have to rewrite my games to be object oriented.
