FlashDevelop vs. Flash Professional IDE

12 Aug

Well… I’ve been discussing this time numerous amount of times on GDR and I’m willing to just end this now.

==========================================================================

FD vs. Flash Pro CS (5.5 is the current new version)

==========================================================================

FlashDevelop:
Pros:

  • Simple to use
  • Lightweight
  • In addition to the Flex SDK, it has a better compiler.
  • Auto-complete/additional assistance

Cons:

  • Does not have a simple library.
  • Cannot be used to create a pre-made image.

*****************************************************

Flash Professional CS5.5:
Pros:

  • Also simple to use.
  • Library, in order to keep all images.
  • Can be used to make an image.
  • Has a ‘widget’ library that you can use to copypasta a pre-made class. (New update)

Cons:

  • Worse compiler than FD+Flex
  • A worse auto-complete function
  • More space taken up

==================================================================

And there you have it. In terms of coding, FD seems to trump the Flash Pro IDE. However, in terms of graphics, it doesn’t stand up to Flash Pro.

I like to use FD to edit my code and Flash Pro CS4 (the version I use) to compile it and to use its library. The one downside to that is not being able to use the great compiler.

New AS2 collaborations.

6 Aug

I joined a collaboration with DannyDaNinja and shadowgrail. I will try to contribute to their AS2 project, which is only known as ‘The abandoned project’ for now. However, it will be a great RPG game… and I think I’ve revealed little to much.

Return of the blog

6 Aug

After 20 entries, I kinda dumped this blog, for various reasons…

However, I want to restart this blog with some great entries… so be on the lookout of more entries from yours truly.

Improving art is a pain

20 Jul

I am no artist… it’s just not my thing, so I used GIMP to create a nice menu logo but I simply cannot decide between 2 images…

 

 

EDIT: Option A is the popular choice. The art forum of Kongregate helped me out with this decision.

Slow week

Sorry people… It’s been a while since I posted something here last, but alas, I tell you that I will post a lot more posts to make up for it.

A basic tutorial for the ages.

5 Jul

Well, I’ve thought about it and figured that i should make a tutorial talking about how to create basic things in THREE, count em , THREE languages…

1. ActionScript 2
2. ActionScript 3
3. Java

I’ve thought about how I should do this (Should i make the lessons how to make the same thing in all three languages? Or should I make em all whatever is basic in those specific languages (diverse subjects)?
As multi-functional and unnecessary as this swiss army knife… can opener… shoe shiner… doohickey… 😀
