Unity3.5 + Flash = The Can Man

I’ve been testing the unity3.5 “free” export to Flash player 11+.
AND I GOT TO BUILD A GAME!!!  http://boff.se/files/canman/unity/ with awesome music from David Saulesco, graphics by Mathias Heinänen

 Both the export and the game are awesome and broken, and no where near refined (naturally) as they should be (for the export look to the Native Unity Web Player instead of flash)

[suspiscion] It looks like they are not going to fix some of the issues until Unity4 drops and Adobe and Unity have come to some kind of agreement over licensing  costs.[/suspiscion]

But the main thing is, flash developers finally got a robust gaming engine to work on, and a robust 3d engine with dedicated fancy tools to develop in, so where the hell does this leave flash? Read more »

Sommarlov – konstsim för hajar

Straight up and down request, build a game that does x,y,z.

Every project has a angle, a hook and dear goodness where those two fishing puns already.

And with this project we used Flixel – the little engine that should

Fixarummet


It was a success, 2d objects, in a 2d room and a control system to MOVE objects in in actual 3d space that is supposed to be intuitive for 7 year olds.
I present to you Fixarummet – Design your own room.

Compromise – Did you every have one of those projects?

Undisclosed Project

Well, since I’ve entered into a iphone game and app course, the very same avenue I suspect the hard-core flash developers to hide in, when general web development slides fully into HTML5.

I started to think of games to develop for the ipad. And naturally amongst all the crazy ideas “wouldn’t it be cool too”, I settled on a casual game – as such. Built up of handful of smaller mini-games. It’s going to involve a lot of micromanagement, and having several balls up in the air at the same time.

So in my wisdom I start developing one of the core mini-games in flash just to get back up to speed with flash after a long summer. Art-direction, although being programmer art, was going towards the “main game concept”. Of course this first mini-game needs to be a stand-alone, fast and furious type of game to sell to friends and colleagues the larger picture, during those days in the future when I need a favour or too.

Paul Dixon (Boff) Blog / Portfolio

Hi, my name is Paul Dixon (more about me) and I’m an Actionscript Programmer, web developer, and all round Boffin.

For my favourite bits of work, check out my Portfolio [Hall of Fame] as linked above,
otherwise just use the filter button on the right to look at my Extended Portfolio.

If you read this far, be warned from here on in, it is the standard self indulgent, obscure personal references and self touting mire of a personal blog [just pretend it's 2007 and the world hasn't gone over to microblogging yet].

Flar and Unity
http://boff.se/examples/uniflar/flar_med_unity.html

  1. have a webcamera
  2. print off this glyph marker
  3. Install Unity

Unity is a game engine, news about it started to trickle into my RSS feeds during the summer.
Basically, it’s a 3d editing suite in which you can build games with: integrated physics, complex model, textures, and particle systems.
Very good for the 3d gaming community, but why talk about it here?

WARNING! Example requires a web Camera and flash player 10.

USING EVERYONE ELSE’S LIBRARIES AND ADDING A FEW LINES OF CODE I FEEL LIKE A GENIUS!!!
Well, programmers usually hate using stuff they don’t know how to build themselves. But sometimes, something is just too cool not to have a play.

Start – digital presentation

Start - Presentation

This was an offline flash project so I have no link :(

I loved this project. An artistically luscious presentation that the client could put together themselves. It was my first fairly complex AS3 project, so complex that I had to build my own debugger. True story.

The innovators – AS3 line drawn in sand

www.innovatorerna.sehttp://www.innovatorerna.se/

So what we have here is a flash film player, an Accordian, xml reader, Javascript communications, a sharebutton that folds out ontop of the flash, and a little bit of a bitmap effect causing that lovely static on the screen (The war of the Ants my swedish colleagues would like to say).

The Line has now been drawn, I’ve had my fill of AS2. From this day forwards I am a flash ActionScript 3.0 programmer!
