Programming in Action Script 3.0 Made Easy

Games games games. With the basic understanding of Action Script, it is like understanding game development tortures me. It is really exhausting finding my way on manipulating objects and movie clips using codes and when an error popped out, it took me decade to figure out why and why. Looking for good resources on the internet about game development, I came across reading the works of veteran programmers to whom I really owe a lot of in relation to game development.

By the way, my background to game development is through my friend Ms. Czarina Salao who is a Java Programmer.She lead me the way in understanding the concept about game development. Now, going back to my main point, understanding at least how programmers work with the object oriented programming broadens my perspective on how I am going to design my characters, arrange them in movie clips, and prepare all the essential elements of the game on the graphics side. I can say that, at least the basic understanding of programming concept is a lot of help in producing good design for games that will be convenient for the programmers and developers to use.

One of the many important references in understanding gaming concept are the works of Gary Rosenweig‘s which inspires me a lot. He diligently explained beginner’s and advance concepts of programming in Action Script 3.0 and provided source files that we can check and experiment later. He explained everything with ease and it is like programming is really on his blood. Well, I mean it, in my observation to his videos, I did not find him having a hard time dealing with his discussions.

Another one, which I have just recently found are the works Jody Hall. I crawled into the pages of her discussions and baamm, I smiled with gladness seeing how she divided her discussions chunks by chunks explaining the details of the codes, how they work and how codes are related to one another. Her tutorials are worth it and provided me a clear picture on good approach to Object Oriented Programming. Well so much for that, I hope that you can also see the works of these two and find their tutorials helpful.

Anime Studio-Ninji Character Design

Now, it is a fun time starting to animate again in anime studio. For quite a while I have been animating in Flash for games and now it is pretty exciting that I am preparing a character for a game. I want to introduce the character to you. Her name is Ninji, the princess of the rainbow village. At first it is really difficult to decide how she will look like. I am thinking of giving her an anime cute look and realize that chibi character design will suit her very well.

Cute Cat Nap Animation

We have cats at home, about three of them are kittens. My wife gave names to the two of them, one is Albert, one is Chi and the other one has no name. Well, they are cute cuddling cats and every morning I would see my wife playing with them. When I watched this animation, I remember those cute kittens we have at home that fills my heart with sweet memories of our house in Nueva Ecija. Well, I forgot to mention that I am now in Pampanga and we don’t have the kittens with us now. Anyway, this is a good animation, despite that it is not colored. Character animation is compelling enough to make me smile, timing is perfect and presentation is outstanding. Good flash animation indeed. This animation is created by simonscat and if you want to see more of the simon cat’s animation, feel free to visit their website.

Facebook as a Medium for Public Service

Facebook, which we can tell as the most popular social networking site today has been used by a concerned citizen to help an old woman find her missing husband, Lolo Matias. According to his story, he saw an old woman sitting by herself along buendia and roxas boulevard with bond paper pinned on her clothes with printed picture of his husband who has been two weeks missing. He was touched and decided to help the old woman by taking her picture and posted it on his facebook wall. Eventually, it caught the attention of many facebook users (in the Philippines) and shared the information to others.

Through that circulated information on facebook, Lolo Matias was found at the Quirino LRT station, telling that he just went out home looking for “adobo”. Now, as I heard from the news, the old woman and her missing husband are again together.What a wonderful and touching story. An example of love that did not fade till their old days. So sweet!
