Gameplay

It should be 2 games in one: an old, well-known tank game and also 🙂 old and well-known sokoban(or pusher) game.
So, main hero has a tank, he should move boxes to slots to open a portal to next level, and enemy tanks will be in the way of this process.
I’m going to add different kind of weapon, power-ups and maybe bosses.


Ctrl+F4 in Flash CS4/CS5/CS5.5

Ctrl+F4, this is what I usually use to close tabs in IDE, like MS Visual Studio or Eclispe. Meanwhile Flash CS4 says that Ctrl+F4 is “Reserved by the system”.
The problem was easy to solve.

All files with keyboard shortcuts for Flash are situated here(Windows 2000/XP): C:\Documents and Settings\%USER_NAME%\Local Settings\Application Data\Adobe\Flash CS4\en\Configuration\Keyboard Shortcuts\

or here (Windows Vista/7): C:\Users\%USER_NAME%\AppData\Local\Adobe\Flash CS4\en\Configuration\Keyboard Shortcuts\

After some investigation, I have changed line
<Shortcut id=”57602″ key=”87″ scope=”1″ flags=”11″ /> 
to
<Shortcut id=”57602″ key=”115″ scope=”1″ flags=”11″ />.

And voilà, Ctrl+F4 works!

UPDATE: The same works for Flash CS5.
Path: C:\Users\%USER_NAME%\AppData\Local\Adobe\Flash CS5\en\Configuration\Keyboard Shortcuts\
Find the line with the id=”57602″ and replace it with the following:
<Shortcut id=”57602″ key=”115″ scope=”IDR_MAINFRAME” flags=”11″ />

In Flash CS5.5 this line should be the following:
<Shortcut id=”57602″ key=”115″ scope=”IDR_MAINFRAME” flags=”9″ />


AS3 Sound

I don’t know why they did like this, but work with sound in as2 was much easier.
Now in as3 each sound should have its own class, what is “cool” of course, but what if I have 100 sound files? Well, I don’t have to create all these classes, but I have to create an object to play the sound.
In as2 it was more simple, just link identifier and play sound by its ID.

Second, why do I start playing sound with Sound object and stop playing with SoundChannel object?
And if I pause(stop) sound with SoundChannel object I need Sound object to resume it. So I have to store somewhere two objects in order to control my sound. Add here one more object for sound volume and looping. Very practical.
Maybe I don’t understand something… 🙂


Soko-tank

Yes, I’ve finally started to make a new game.
Well, right now I’m in process of planning…
And this game will be on AS3.


New Design

Doing new design for web site.
For now, it’s available at http://pozirk.net
I’m going to add a lot of flash things, so will be very interactive. 🙂




New Website Design

I have a dream. Well, I have a lot of dreams… but one of them is to make a new design for Pozirk Games website.

I want to remove all these affiliate games, all these tips&tricks and left just my games.

I even know how this new design will look like, I have it already in my mind.

It will be live website, it will change its color and background depeding on the season… 🙂

But  I have no time… Just have to finish some other projects, to earn some money, to buy some food…

In summer! I’ll do it in summer.
