Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Cheers,
Kirupa

Thread: TARGEngine

  1. #1

    TARGEngine

    Hey, so, I haven't been here in a loooong time, but I wanted to just stop by and drop off this link to the project I've been working on: TARGEngine is a Flash ActionScript 3.0 RPG Engine that takes most of the base work out of making a sprite-style RPG in Flash. It's in the early stages of development, so don't expect it to be a fully polished tool just yet, but I'm working on it. Feedback, positive or negative, is welcome! Thanks!

    Hmm. You lost me at ActionScript 2.0. For making a solid engine I would want a well designed ObjectOriented API, and ActionScript 2.0 is just too sloppy to achieve that.

    EDIT: I looked into it, and it is 3.0, so I guess that was a typo?

    EDIT2:
    Ok so looking at it, well, I'm not really looking at it that thoroughly because you need way more abstraction. Way way more. You don't want everything defined in one giant super file. You should be creating multiple classes that do a few things each instead of having one gigantic ones. Learn a bit about encapsulation and look at more developed APIs to get an idea about creating a smart ObjectOriented class structure.

    Yeah, that was a typo... had a screaming baby smacking the keyboard as I typed that... I'll look into encapsulation more to see what I can improve. Thanks.
