I''m becoming more and more interested and trying to develop games with Flash or Shockwave, but I haven''t found any good leads on tutorials or anything. So, does anyone have some helpful advice, tips, or tutorials to getting started? -SP

Guess you didn''t read the first sentence of the post.

Excuse me if I thought this was a forum for acquiring help; of course, what else could you expect from someone who choose to remain anonymous when posting such a reply?

Check http://www.director-online.com/ for some really good Director tutorials, including how to make some pac-man type stuff... most of the pages have interactive demos as well...

Also, check out http://www.setpixel.com/ for some of the most amazing Director stuff around, most with source code.

Also, check out http://www.robotduck.com/ for some really amazing Director games, as well as a handful of good tutorials.

Hope this helps...

I''ve been doing Flash game development for over a year now. There is lot''s of great information out there. My favorite Online Flash resource is flashkit.com (mentioned in a previous reply). It has a huge section of Flash tutorials including one on creating a side scroller space shooter.

As far as my advice goes though, get a couple of good books on Flash if you want to do anything serious. Web resources are great when you want to find something specific, but a good reference book will help you get a broader understanding of the power (and limitations) of Flash.

A good Flash game development book is called Flash Games Studio and it''s published by Friends of Ed. It is for Flash 5 but you can most likely adapt it to MX.
