[Flashcoders] Platform Game with Motor2?

2008-04-11 Thread Elia Morling
Does anyone have an example of a platform game made with motor2? The only 
thing I see on his page are demos, I would really like to see a real 
implementation.

Re: [Flashcoders] component skinning issue

2008-04-11 Thread Andres Garcia
Yeap.. that's right... You can extend the component... but you need to  
rewrite the entire function...


However the best option for me was to fix the component once so it  
gets the size from the skin sprite... and works for all my projects  
without extend each time and hard code the setSize in the override  
function:


package com.hoorray
{
import fl.controls.Slider;

public class SliderExtend extends Slider
{
public function SliderExtend()
{
super();
}

protected override function configUI():void{
//...   
}

}
}

[Flashcoders] A question about localConnection

2008-04-11 Thread eric e. dolecki
I would like to place a SWF in a web page on a server, and have
localConnection work with a SWF on the desktop (localhost).

The following 2 classes work fine when run locally, and fine when run both
online. Is there a trick I can use, or do I need to use XMLSocket somehow
for this?

*SENDER (to be in a webpage)*

package net.ericd.utils
{
import flash.display.Sprite;
import flash.net.LocalConnection;
import flash.events.StatusEvent;
import flash.utils.Timer;
import flash.events.TimerEvent;

/**
 * This SWF will reside in a web page.
 */
public class LocalConnectionSender extends Sprite
{
private var conn:LocalConnection;
private var myTimer:Timer;
private var circle:Sprite;

public function LocalConnectionSender()
{
conn = new LocalConnection();
conn.allowDomain( *, localhost );
conn.addEventListener( StatusEvent.STATUS, onStatus );
myTimer = new Timer( 500, 0 );
myTimer.addEventListener( TimerEvent.TIMER, ping );

circle = new Sprite();
circle.graphics.beginFill( 0xFF6600, 1 );
circle.graphics.drawCircle( 50, 50, 10 );
circle.graphics.endFill();
circle.alpha = 0;
addChild( circle );

myTimer.start();
}

private function onStatus( event:StatusEvent ):void
{
switch( event.level )
{
case status:
circle.alpha = 1;
break;
case error:
circle.alpha = 0.3;
break;
}
}

private function ping( event:TimerEvent ):void
{
conn.send( lifeConnection, lcHandler, hello );
}
}
}

*RECEIVER (to be local on desktop):*

package net.ericd.utils
{
import flash.display.Sprite;
import flash.net.LocalConnection;

public class LocalConnectionReceiver extends Sprite
{
private var conn:LocalConnection;

/**
 * This SWF will reside on the desktop, local.
 */
public function LocalConnectionReceiver()
{
conn = new LocalConnection();
conn.allowDomain( *, localhost );

conn.client = this;
try
{
conn.connect( lifeConnection );
} catch ( error:ArgumentError )
{
trace( Can't connect, name already in use. );
}
}

public function lcHandler( msg:String ):void
{
trace( received data:  + msg );
}
}
}


Any ideas appreciated.

whats the verdict for using one over the other 

Not one over the other - MVC is a pattern, Cairngorm is a framework
which uses several design patterns, one of them being MVC.  

Try Cairngorm.  Try both.  Depends on how big your app is - for a small
app, Cairngorm is overkill, and for a really small app, even MVC may be
overkill.  For a medium to large app, Cairngorm will greatly help.

[Flashcoders] Embedded font shifting and when is the TextField really ready?

2008-04-11 Thread Barrett Sonntag
I just uploaded an example of my situation right now. The top row of
TextFields has embedFonts set to false and the bottom row has
embedFonts set to true. When set to true the TextField border becomes
very small and the displayed text is shifted up and left aligned to
the center of the original TextField. The TextField textWidth
properties are also skewed as you can see the alignment of the
TextFields is off in the lower example.

http://img440.imageshack.us/img440/4902/embeddedfontweirdnesslt2.jpg

Using a bandaid delay function that waits for 2 seconds between
setting the embedFont to true and the defaultTextFormat before
arranging them on stage seems to improve the issue slightly.

In timeline development I could insert an extra frame, to wait a frame
for some TextField properties to be set but I don't know how I can
achieve the same effect in straight actionscript.

Hello :)

You can test my opensource framework too :)

http://code.google.com/p/vegas/

Install it with all this extensions :

http://code.google.com/p/vegas/wiki/InstallVEGASwithSVN

And test it with all examples in the AS3/bin/test directory of the
repository or with my other opensource project AST'r (documentary framework)
based on VEGAS and who contains examples of implementation with all tools of
VEGAS.

The AS3 version of VEGAS is based on a IOC factory who use external data
based on the eden notation :)

http://code.google.com/p/astr/

See example and tutorials in Google code pages and wiki projects :)

http://code.google.com/p/andromed-as/wiki/TutorialsAndromedA_IOC
http://code.google.com/p/vegas/wiki/TutorialsVEGAS
http://code.google.com/p/as-gard/wiki/TutorialsASGARD

The tutorials are in progress ;)

In VEGAS you can find an exemple of MVC, etc. implementation in SVN
directory  :

(http://www.tombray.com/2007/10/16/my-easymvc-seminar-wasnt-recorded/). His
presentation on 3/28/08 was recorded as an Adobe ondemand seminar and
describes how to use EasyMVC and also compares it to Cairngorm. There is
also easyMVC from Simeon Bateman but I haven't looked at that one.

 whats the verdict for using one over the other 
 
 Not one over the other - MVC is a pattern, Cairngorm is a framework
 which uses several design patterns, one of them being MVC.  
 
 Try Cairngorm.  Try both.  Depends on how big your app is - for a small
 app, Cairngorm is overkill, and for a really small app, even MVC may be
 overkill.  For a medium to large app, Cairngorm will greatly help.

To add my 2 cents ... by the time a developer has gone through Easy  
MVC (Clockwork Objects) or something similar, they are already 50% of  
the way through knowing how Cairngorm works.


It really isn't much of a leap. Cairngorm adds in the ServiceLocator  
and the events, commands, delegate chain.


That said, Cairngorm does lack some things for enterprise development  
and large applications/teams that are pretty needed. Some of these  
things I've recently run into (better command chaining architecture)  
and am looking into various solutions for (UM Cairngorm extensions is  
one).


just a thought.

Heh. No need, sir. I looked it up too, just because I was equally unsure!
