Making games

i have never made a game before but would like to try. i would like some help if any one is willing. im going to read tuts and stuff like that to help me with code. but i was wondering since line rider cant be played on the psp because os the flash could you make a new linerider game without flash but turn it into a game. like the demos and stuff. are make it with the use of flash and maybe without wireless internet maybe. is it possible you think.

Re: Making games

not quite sure what you mean about not making it with flash then making it with flash etc. This website concentrates on games in flash because it's much easier to make your own games in flash than it is to write full game engines etc.

The reason that linerider doesn't work on the PSP is that it has been published in a version of flash that the PSP doesn't support. It's in Flash 8, the PSP only supports up to Flash 6. So, it's quite possible to write your own version of linerider, and export it as Flash 6 with the correct dimensions for the PSP...

We've got some notes on making flash games for the psp here. There's also a brief forum post here.

Re: Making games

In short, you can't - it'll have protection preventing you from doing that, and it's sort of illegal as it's not your work. Either you email the guy asking him to make what you want (not going to happen, he's a busy fella) or you make your own version from scratch...

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news!

Re: Making games

Its possible to create flash games without using Flash 8 using an alternative authoring tool called Swishmax or Koolmoves. SwishMax works very similar to Flash 8 and requires little to no conversions from Actionscript to "Swishscript", while Koolmoves is designed for beginners. Both "Export" your work to .swf files.

Re: Making games

I doubt linerider will work on the psp, seeing that it often runs slow on computer too

Ye duh... Leaving that beside, it wouldn't work well at all on a PSP either yikes

What are the major differences between flash 6 and 8 anyway?

Re: Making games

Yay i managed to log in.
I thin that linerider for PSP is theoreticaly possible - but it will be a home-made flash game, not the original one, and the framerate will be around 3-4

Re: Making games

Major differences are the ability to add filters to movie clips - eg blur, drop shadow etc. Those are the only ones i've noticed really. There are a few updates in the actionscript etc too...

Line rider doesn't run slow on my computer, and I have a very slow computer!
