wranchyca, Just try after removing the
Not sure if you missed some operators in the line starts with _root.onEnterFrame.
I have bought many files here and seen a lot of source code. What are the advantages of as3 or oop? Are you kidding me?
There are authors on this marketplace who write terrible code that gives you almost no possibility to modify simple things..
There are others who put small snippets of code in 100 places inside the flash so you have to search one day for a simple actions.
So all those devs who say they don’t see the difference between as2/as3 and oop/timeline coding, are those devs with nightmare codes. Of course it’s easier to not bother and learn a new technology and stick with the old rusty one, but come on guys..If you really respect yourself learn as3, a little bit of oop and some design patterns.
Oh and lastly..as3 is much much more faster than as3. Anyone who doesn’t agree on this has no idea about Flash
Welcome to this thread! LOL
Chuckanucka saidI don’t think the AS2 files on Activeden are the only culprit of slower migration. Even if we stop selling AS2 files, we can expect support requests of “How to add my AS2 file with your Template” plus losing 1000s of buyers to competitor marketplaces.
the problems of approving AS2 in 2011:
- it splits the audience for every filewhen do people think AS2 should be dropped? It’s been nearly 5 years since AS3 was introduced..
- AS3 provides solutions to lots of the things that Flash has a bad reputation for
- it simply looks bad. In the “real world “devs have drop AS2 YEARS ago.
So… Flash sales are off because as2 is no longer promoted?
Not an answer for your question but I would say:
Encourage technical aspects but only on Authors end (feature AS3 only files on Envato marketplaces etc). But on Ad compaigns go with any file that promises buyer attraction, not necessarily the coding version – practice. That will obviously cause reduced sales / buyer interest.
I don’t get it why we are still talking about AS2 , for me it will be extinct in next few year. I just want to emphasize that technology evolves very fast. While we are here complaining about low sale and wonder why AS2 doesn’t get a tiny favour, have you ever realized what is going on currently with the hype of html5 and the iDevice thing. Flash is criticized as too buggy, resource hog, crash like hell and what you developer should really do is pushing the platform further. AS3 can’t help you beat html5 but it’s at least several time better than AS2 .
You are right and I hope everyone here feels the same. But it is a suicide to expect the same from buyers (those who implements our files to the end client / output). We can’t make them a switch by reducing their choice. Especially when we promote the files like bundles or similar ad movements.
I suspect I don’t need to point this. We are extremely small community and this can’t make the difference of fighting with HTML5 or other critisations LOL It is in the hands of collective Flash users and their practices, we can’t speak about that.
Actually 2 different looking things needs to be considered as of now:
1. Encourage the Authors to switch to AS3 and better coding practices (Envato already doing this well)
2. Never reduce the choice for buyers. Allow them to choose / reach whatever version (AS2 or AS3 ) they want. The bundle sounded like “we are asking you buyers to choose only AS3 OOP ”
^ +1 Doing the above can help preparing the marketplace library for future positive expansions; cases like Flash becoming popular on mobile devices (which will require cpu efficient files). But when pulling the new buyers (as of today) it can’t be a best way.
I know a portion of potential buyers will just turn out after seeing the word OOP
