My dad is helping me make android apps, so most of my time will probably be in that instead of flash but I will also still be in flash!

Ok so thank to this guy Schulle and this book ActionScript 3.0 Game Programming University Do yourself a favor and buy it! It has already helped me learn some As3!
Also check out Schulles games:
Utopian Mining
Zombies in Your Backyard

Utopian Mining is a really fun time-waster type game ! Zombies in your backyard is a somewhat challenging game!

From now until I finish it I am working on a new secret project! It isn't that great but it has the most code in it than any game I have ever made so far! And I am only 1/12 of the way done! I am so proud lol jk!

I am currently in the process of learning As3. I am wanting to go all out on my strengths(so far)! Right now I have only come up with four stories(one for each character)! I have a adult human, Alien, Old man(very wise),and a young boy. I would very much appreciate if someone would help me come up with a few characters( with a story and a name please). In return I would put you in the credits with a 25% profit role!

The original with out the "help" is here!

This is a tutorial to help support As3:Main ! Here is the step-by-step tutorial!
1. Open Adobe Flash
2. Click on Actionscript 3.0 under the "Create New" branch
3. Create the graphic for your button
4. Select the entire thing and right-click then select "Convert to Symbol..."
5. Put anything for the name (for now I will call this button1)
6. Register the point in the middle
7. Make sure the type is Button.
8. Give button1 the instance name of anything!(we will refer to it from now on as "Btn1")
9. Make a new layer and name it Actions
10. Go to the actions panel (Window/Actions)
11. Type the following

Btn1.addEventListener(MouseEvent.Event, anythinghere); //Identifying the button and giving it a function

function anythinghere(event:MouseEvent):void{ // calling the function to do something
gotoAndPlay(2); // what the function does
} // closes this code

12. Add a blank keyframe
13. go to the actions layer and on both frame add this to the coding:

stop(); // Stops the frame so it doesn't keep on going

14. Test the move (ctrl + enter)
15. You have a working button! Hope I could help!

buttonname.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, eventname);

function eventname(event:MouseEvent):void
The code is "better" but it takes SO much longer lol. *Lazy Face*

This is a video showing one difference on how AS2 lacks from As3. Also AS3 goes straight to the video card so the computer can run it a LOT easier. Thank you for reading cya next time. PEACE OUT!
