    Developing a Flash Game(Need opinions)

    As someone who was taught to program in AIR, ActionScript 2.0, I would highly recommend you take your knowledge and apply it to swift (object-oriented, "C" Family Language) for ios/mac gaming. The language is cleaner while still being similar to AIR/Java and cleanest and easiest of the three. If you don't have a mac, Java is good for Android and Windows, etc., and Go is good for the internet. You have the logic required to start making more refined programs/games on platforms that you can potentially make money with if you get somewhat good at them. Do whatever suits your desires, and be sure to research all of them for their various pros and cons. I used to use game editors, map editors, and various other tools to make simple games and all of the logic is the same with the syntax for each language and how they interact with their environments being the largest differentiator. There are a lot of simple IDEs, and some specifically for gaming, for most of the languages listed. Take an hour to look for some. Another thing to look into is Unity, there are 2D versions that you can quickly rebuild what you have with and potentially have it on nearly all mobile devices. I believe one even taps into the 3D graphics chips for additional processing and other things to a 2D game. Good luck, and good job so far.

    Winter Attire

    I wish my peacoat (I know they aren't the same, however they are very similar) was hardy enough to withstand a northern Ontario winter. I have reverted back to my HS big-ass pure-black coat. I don't like it, but it is a lot warmer. : / It was my dads. It can definitely withstand Wisconsin cold that is for sure. Yeah, I started wearing it anyway, lol. Fuck Canadian winter.
  19. What is this nonsense?

  20. AmericasHat


    Asking this isn't breaking the rules. We typically only grief servers that we believe deserve it. How we find them is different for every server, some we find on our own, others we learn about from PMs to the administrators. That pretty much covers it.

    I own a minecraft server, and I want to share.

    He isn't breaking the rules, however he is on thin ice. As long as you keep the details in private, and don't try to co-ordinate anything regarding your server on our forums it is fine. In the future, we ask that you contact an administrator before attempting to post something such as this, as it is grounds for permanent banning.

    So what's up with all of the people "leaving" the forums?

    To be quite blunt, if one would like to leave the forums, then leave. You don't need to explain why, just do it. It is your life and you should live it the way you want. None of us need anyone else to be here and the majority of members log in to discuss things with like-minded people. With every new member, the forums change. I personally enjoy intelligent discussions which is why I don't post often any more, however some members like talking about nothing in particular, and that is fine as long as they don't break rules. Everybody's taste is different, and for those who left I'm sure they had their reasons. But in the end, this forum is a forum, and people will come and go as they please, which is the beauty of freedom.

    Did i miss something?

    If a member makes a post that breaks the rules, simply report them. Do not promote their threads, just report, and we will punish them accordingly. Every community faces this, it is one of the cons of being a part of a community that welcomes everyone.

    The Original aVo Member's

    Straight from our lawyer. Now, stop being childish. As for the new forum members, we do not expect them to recognise all of us. Many don't know that I am part of the team, as well as many people who are on hiatus who would be welcomed back if they were interested. The core members (the original core members) were a part of 2-3 different Warcraft 3 modding communities before banding together as Avolition. The truth is, we never intended on having a forum, and only a few of us were interested in having one, as the majority were fine with things like ventrilo. The whole minecraft experiment started out as just us having fun with minecraft, however once we figured out how the game works we had much more fun griefing (as we normally do with many other games). After awhile, a few people decided that FRAPSing our adventures could be found as humorous by others, so Storm_Surge edited some rough footage together to make our first Minecraft video. The rest, is history. Don't get me wrong, there is a lot more to our past, however I think only the above information is needed for this conversation. That being said, we welcome new forum users to our community as long as they act appropriately and do not bully on our forums. A good rule of thumb is to not take your anger out on people who can't possibly contextualize your words as we have no idea of what emotional state you are in. If you act up, you will be punished. Basically, don't be a dick. I for one have to deal with dramatic bullshit on a daily basis, I don't need it here, and I'm sure the majority of you agree. This is a community for like-minded, and like-humoured people of all ages to discuss whatever they want really. I think our forum rules are pretty relaxed, and we only seem to have issues with 1 post members, as it is rare that a contributing member would act up as they seem to be aware of the rules.
