If you got any to add to the list please post a link.
or something better to replace something with..
some classes that would be nice to add to this list:
- advanced key binding class similar to that of valve games..
- mouse class?
- hybrid BitmapData/Bitmap class thats nicely written with a buffer etc.
- shapes like stars, diamonds... great for particle effects.
- text management? speech bubbles, bitmapData text etc
I labeled the database classes with * because its more efficient and secure to use AMF protocol to connect to php then have php connect to the database.
This way the user will not have access to a database password if they decompile the swf/use a packet sniffer.
Also the AMF protocol is compressed binary, it uses alot less bandwidth then xml formatted results etc. (xml is still nice for usability reasons like rss feeds, SEO etc)
However you can still use the direct connection libs, just keep in mind the above and create a MySql account with SELECT only privileges.
