    I'm a fairly competent programmer in the ways of C++ and PHP, so I can get things done. However, I'm wracking my brain over all this nonsense with Flash and Actionscript 3.0. I can't seem to find any legit tutorials that cover how to do things from start to finish (or more aptly, good examples of things). I'm trying to create a little game in flash with a console (just like the old school quake console), but I have no idea to do all these event handling functions and whatnot.

    Does anyone have a good resource to learning all this stuff? I think I made a dumb rash decision to go and buy this book that won't help me:

    amazon_com/Learning-ActionScript-3-0-Beginners-Guide/dp/059652787X/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1266879365&sr=1-1


    (I can't post links :\)

    no, I'm pretty good solving computer issues ;)
    You can search some of my 30,000 support posts on Google if you like :)

    Edit:
    btw I already read your thread hours ago, I'm positive I could find a guide, therefore I didn't answer :)

    "I'm not even angry. I'm actually impressed."

    And why didn't you post a link to a guide then? :p

    For some reason I can't PM you back, but thanks for the link! This does look like a good resource. <3

    I have 3 PMs used out of my 5 available
    You only get 5 PMs only

    If you have selected "Save a copy in your sent items" but you already have 5 PMs used, then that's why ;)
    But I'll delete my 3 just in case

    I just did that out of curiosity. You had 18k posts on the one support site, and the staff never even bothered to respond to your last post.
    That's seriously :hsugh:

    Oh I could tell you a story off topic, on how all tech forums run.
    Free; my arse. They're not free. If you ask a tech question you'll get: "try this program for such and such dollars". And this is by the staff!.

    I left on my own accord because I said I'll only post free support; and I'll reply to every staff post (within 5mins) that says "buy this.."; and say No one needs to buy anything.
    Well that second my Mod abilities were removed. I left the second after that.

    When looking (posting hundreds (and thousands) of posts on other "free" tech forums, it was the same thing over and over again!
    If you want real free support, make sure to get support from lower post count members. Because the higher the post count the more corrupt.

    I am still on the search for a free forum, and I still haven't found one yet! (and I'm member of most (possibly all) of the "respected" ones.

    Hence I'm here at offtopic, trying to make sense of it all.
