Before we can start working on games and all the fun stuff, it’s imperative that we’ve got solid fundamentals. Here in Week 2 of CUFDIG302A – Author Interactive Sequences we’re looking at conditional branching (i.e. if/and/or/not statements), flow control (i.e loops) and generating random numbers.
If you’ve not gone through the Week 1 slides, and you’re new to coding, then take a step back to and take it order – it’ll really help. Otherwise enjoy the notes!
The download link to the slides along with some legal gubbins regarding their use is after the jump, so if you fancy learning ActionScript – you’ll find the knowledge to start from near to absolute basics right here, and pretty soon we’ll be onto Symbols, Classes, Events, Object Orientation, Interaction, Sound, Collision Detection and all that other good stuff. We’ll even make a couple of flash games – which should be quite fun :)
