Re: [Flashcoders] Video issues with Flash Lite 2.1 and Windows Mobile6

2008-02-12 Thread McVirusS

Janus was the solution. The video performance is very poor though.

Usually I use a device specific format the mediaplayer on the device itself 
can play. It's a bummer the normal Flash Lite 2.1 (device) video 
capabilities don't work on the iPAQ 214 / WM6.

What when you use something like Janus for Windows Mobile? Can you play 
the videos in the videoplayer of the mobile device?

Hi,


I am working on a mobile Flash application that uses a lot of video. 
Before
I received the real target device (HP iPAQ 214 with Windows Mobile 6) I 
did
some tests on an older type iPAQ (with Windows Mobile 5) and on a Nokia 
N95.
I had no problems getting video to work in the Flash Lite 2.1 player on 
both

devices.

A few days ago I received the iPAQ 214 with WM6. I tried several options 
but

I didn't get video to work in the Flash Lite 2.1 standalone player (the
onStatus event only said: Uknown error (don't you love those)).


I already tried many different codecs and nothing seems to work.

It looks like the only way to get video working in Flash on this device 
is
in the Flash Player 7 in the browser (there is no standalone version). 
But I

really want to use the whole screen. Does anyone know a solution for this
problem?

Thanks in advance,
Meinaart / McVirusS

Re: [Flashcoders] Dynamically animating writing effect

2008-02-12 Thread Alistair Colling
Thanks for the suggestion Erik, I've done a bit of research into  
these classes and they are very interesting but it seems I am still  
left with the same problem of figuring out how each character would  
appear when written as this information isn't in the font data.


I'm not sure there is a logical answer to my problem that can be  
coded, even if the characters' pixels fill out from a certain point  
the application would still need to know which way the stroke should  
go on letters with repeating strokes and loops like d's. I guess this  
one would have to be animated by hand for each of the individual  
characters of a certain font and then drawn dynamically, triggering  
each letter to be drawn sequentially and maybe also somehow returning  
a reference for the pen nib.


Cheers
Ali

Whow, tough task...

If I were given that assignment I would check out this application:

http://www.sephiroth.it/file_detail.php?id=159#

It allows you to read font information. This font information  
allows you to
draw the font using information available in the font file itself.  
If I am
correct the application draws the font using an included graphics  
library.


If you end up using this for your application I would recommend you to
consider to donate something using the paypal button on that page.

figure out
which pixels are coloured by the text and then I duplicate the

to use 'joined up' writing also obv.

Does anyone think this would work or is there a simple way to

Re: [Flashcoders] Exporting AS2 classes across multiple frames?

2008-02-12 Thread Hans Wichman
Hi,
you can put classes in an swf and use the swf as a dll.
It's a hassle but its doable.

You load the swf in a specific frame, the swf only contains classes and they
become available from that frame onwards.
Again, im not sure if you should do this if the only reason is that you'd
rather write the preloader in as2 instead of as1.
It's a great opportunity to hack timelime as1 you know and nowadays those

Re: [Flashcoders] Exporting AS2 classes across multiple frames?

2008-02-12 Thread EECOLOR
I might be wrong here, but if I recall correctly you can in fact load all
your classes in frame 2. Make sure none of your MovieClips have the 'export
in first frame' option enabled and place those MovieClips in frame 2.

As for your other non-visual classes, just make sure they are not called
within frame 1. Your preloader script in frame one should run before
everything else has been loaded. If I remember well, this is the technique
used in Flex 1.5 and 2.0.

Re: [Flashcoders] Control speed by how fast mouse moving

2008-02-12 Thread Cory Petosky
You'd be better off doing it in an onEnterFrame or a onMouseMove than
in a setInterval call -- code is only executed between frames anyway,
so your way just adds extra processing burden.

Since all these events are only working once per frame, just comparing
x's isn't likely to give you meaningful data -- if a player moves his
mouse rapidly left to right at a rate that's some factor of your
framerate, you could easily get the same (or similar) x value at every
read. Increasing the framerate could help this, but brings other
problems.

Consider placing a small, invisible movieclip on the path you intend
the user to move his mouse, and listen for onRollOver. You can use the
number of RollOver events per second to adjust speed. Just keep in
mind that you won't get any more events than your framerate.

Finally, instead of adjusting speed directly, adjust max speed and
provide a constant acceleration toward the current max speed. For
example, if the user starts out at a rate that correlates to 50 mph,
his current speed should slowly increase at a constant rate over many
seconds until it reaches 50. Similarly, once the user begins to slow
down, the speed should decrease linearly to the maximum speed allowed
by the mouse move rate. This provides a slow acceleration at the
beginning -- which is probably what you want if you're emulating the
old button mashers -- and provides smooth speed changes as the game
progresses, which is definitely good.

 I compare the previous mouse X position with the current one and use this

Re: [Flashcoders] Multiple moviecliploaders

2008-02-12 Thread Martin Klasson
changing it on its own computer would not be of my taste,
since I am developing for users that has windows installed
at its default settings.

 It's a Windows restriction, which can be manually changed in the registry
 (or with some 3rd party tools).
 Mine is set to 20 or something ;-)

  If I remember well the MovieClip loader can only load 2 images
  simultaniously. This also might be a browser restriction.

RE: [Flashcoders] Control speed by how fast mouse moving

2008-02-12 Thread Paul Steven
Thanks Cory

Good point about the setInterval introducing redundant processing.Problem
with placing an invisible movie clip is, the users mouse may not pass over
this movie clip. For example, the movie is 600 pixels wide and 400 pixels
high. If I place a 400 high and say 10 pixels wide movie clip in the center
of the movie, it is still possible for the player to move their mouse left
and right in the area to the left or the area to the right of the hidden
movie clip - hence no speed would be detected. I am therefore not sure how
to overcome this apart from insisting they move the mouse in a specified
area.

Any ideas anyone?

You'd be better off doing it in an onEnterFrame or a onMouseMove than
in a setInterval call -- code is only executed between frames anyway,
so your way just adds extra processing burden.

Since all these events are only working once per frame, just comparing
x's isn't likely to give you meaningful data -- if a player moves his
mouse rapidly left to right at a rate that's some factor of your
framerate, you could easily get the same (or similar) x value at every
read. Increasing the framerate could help this, but brings other
problems.

Consider placing a small, invisible movieclip on the path you intend
the user to move his mouse, and listen for onRollOver. You can use the
number of RollOver events per second to adjust speed. Just keep in
mind that you won't get any more events than your framerate.

Finally, instead of adjusting speed directly, adjust max speed and
provide a constant acceleration toward the current max speed. For
example, if the user starts out at a rate that correlates to 50 mph,
his current speed should slowly increase at a constant rate over many
seconds until it reaches 50. Similarly, once the user begins to slow
down, the speed should decrease linearly to the maximum speed allowed
by the mouse move rate. This provides a slow acceleration at the
beginning -- which is probably what you want if you're emulating the
old button mashers -- and provides smooth speed changes as the game
progresses, which is definitely good.

 Game where you had to hit 2 keys on the keyboard on after the other as
fast
 as you can to control the speed of say a character running.

 I could do with some advice on how to achieve this.

 I have a frame rate of 31 FPS, with a movie width of 600 pixels.

 Currently I am calling a function every 10ms to calculate the speed

 objShowerGame.updateSpeedInterval = setInterval(updateSpeed, 10);


 I compare the previous mouse X position with the current one and use this
 difference as the speed.

 This isn't really working so I could do with some suggestions.

 Thanks

Re: [Flashcoders] Multiple moviecliploaders

2008-02-12 Thread Jason Van Cleave
I usually would break out the thumbs into their own class with a
MovieClipLoader for each but this may give you the same effect:

function displayThumbs()
{
for (i = 0; i  modelsArray.length; i++)
{
var img_mcl:MovieClipLoader = new MovieClipLoader();
img_mcl.addListener(this);
var path:String = http://www.bottero.net/2008/images/modelos/s/ref;
+ modelsArray[i] + s.png;
img_mcl.loadClip(path, thumb_mc.img_mc);
}
}
function onLoadInit(target:MovieClip)
{
main.hideMc(target._parent.loading_mc);

}
