Technical questions

I'm a flasher, and i have a PSP with filmaware 2,8, flash player enabeled.
I wanna do some little time-killig games and this things i know for shure:
- screen size - 480*272
- export to Flash Player 6.
- d-pad, X-button and joypad keycodes.
- the .swf file must not be bigger than 1mb.

But i still have some questions:
- Framerate: what is optimal?
- Is it possible to use right-clicking or should i make virtual buttons for that?

Re: Technical questions

right clicking is not possible in the psps browser. The frame rate really depends on how much code their is running and how complex that code is. I have found that on the psp the frame rate is limited but can be as high as 26fps. A game like jelly (see in the games section) has an average frame rate of about 12fps. I use the following code to get the frame rate of a game and to adjust things slightly to get a higher frame rate.

Code:

this.onEnterFrame = function(){
    timeb=time;
    time = getTimer();
    fps = Math.round(1000/(time-timeb));
}

Good luck in making some flash content and do not be put off by others saying flash player 6 is ancient - you can still do most of the things you need to make a game. I have had no problems at all. And if you don't mind I would be interested in seeing what you come up with and hopefully host the content for you, if you would like.

Re: Technical questions

Sounds excellent - let us know how you're getting on smile
Flash Player 6 is the player associated with Flash MX, but all of the versions of Flash after MX (MX 2004, 8) can also publish in Flash 6 format - in the publish menu window there should be an option with all of the different output options...

Re: Technical questions

if you copy the code from the previous post and just place it in the frame that the game is running on (you will probably have a function that is running every frame so you could just use the 3 middle lines like

Code:

timeb=time;
time = getTimer();
fps = Math.round(1000/(time-timeb));

And you should then get the frame rate in a variable called fps.
