New netbook!

2011-04-20 07:07:13 by jirachi99

Yep! A new netbook, much better than the old!

Well I do a lot of traveling (flying to and back to sydney from brisbane every 3 weeks) and I can't lug my computer around with me everywhere, so I decided this time last year to get a netbook, 10.1" 1GB 120GB Gateway netbook, and whenever I came down here I would use that for my portable flash work, but I noticed that I couldn't do much 'cuz of its low resolution, I had a stage size of 480x272 and with small icons but I still was missing part of the stage.

I now bought a Lenovo X100e with a 1366x768 screen and over 4 hrs of battery life!

ok well its an 11.6" screen so technically speaking its not a netbook, but instead a really small notebook. Anyway its still small enough for travel and I love it to death!!!

AS2 vs AS3

2011-03-23 06:46:18 by jirachi99

Ok AS2.0:

this.onEnterFrame = function () {
trace("SOMETHING")
}

AND AS3.0?????
addEventListener(Event.ENTER_FRAME, myFunction);
function myFunction(e){
trace("SOMETHING")
}

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

FireFox 4 BETA

2011-03-15 05:39:58 by jirachi99

I downloaded and installed the firefox 4 beta/release candidate today and I seem to like it, the only thing I have to say is that I think they tried to copy chrome too much, now it looks more like chrome than anything else, but I found a few pros and cons of the new version

Pro's
+Faster
+Better Win7 features
+Lighter

Con's
-New format, kinda hard to find things.
-Plug ins not compatible
-Typing into the address bar doesn't use Google 'I'm feeling lucky'

But other than that its allright! Reccommended still!


KEEP YOUR AS3

2011-03-13 07:10:32 by jirachi99

OK I TRIED AND SCREW IT! AS3 SUCKS I CANNOT LEARN IT AND IM NOT GOING TO TRY AND I DONT WANT ANYONE TRYING TO GET ME TO CONVERT, AS2 WORKS FINE

Ok enough CAPSLOCK and I just want to say it wont work, AS2 works fine and I will continue to use it, I can't work it!


AS2 to AS3

2011-03-09 21:53:21 by jirachi99

Ok, I'm doing it, I'm biting the bullet and *GULP* learning AS3

For those wondering AS3 stands for ActionScript 3.0, its the programming language that you use to make flash games

I have been using AS2 since 2005 when I was just 10 but since like 2008 or 2009 AS3 was introduced, I thought to myself 'Oh yeah, I'll just learn that' but its a lot harder than you think, its like speaking english for 6 years then suddenly learning japanese (well maybe not that hard) I have been slowly learning PARTS of AS3 that is in AS2.

Wish me luck guys! The next game is in AS3!!!!


New game - Meteurs

2011-03-09 03:21:18 by jirachi99

Hey, a new game by me, meteurs! Its just a small space shooter with very little code that I made at school today, its the first of my games to feature any A.I. and is a great feat!

It really captures the PSN Minis/XBL Arcade style I've been after!
