...when you make a mini-war simulator in your signature:

width="100%" height=80

The cool thing is, it resizes automatically:






width="100%" height=80


So far, the only way you can interact with it is by clicking the larger spheres to spawn more guys. I plan to add something else for players to do later... like missiles...

I tried to set it up to take care of itself (try spawning a bunch of guys on one side), but if you notice any problems or have any suggestions, post them here!

Also, don't watch it too long, or you might start rooting for one side >.>

This is pretty cool. Mind if I make something like this for my own amusement?

Not all, so long as you're talking about making it from scratch, but I would appreciate it if you didn't decompile it. It'd be fun to see a bunch of different mini-wars around the forum.

Man, a collab were each person makes their own army and they fight other entrant's armies in signatures would be awesome...

Nah, I know nothing about AS. I'm thinking of a GM game. It would be extremely easy with it. Good luck with your updates.

This is tight, I played around with it for way too long considering that I was supposed to be somewhere else at the time and should have left earlier

Wow, that is awesome! I'm inspired now. Shouldn't be too hard to make one myself, right? It probably would need to involve ragdoll physics though, hmmm....

Heh, thanks!
Ragdoll physics would be awesome, but that means you'll need explosions and other fun stuff to blast them around :P

Oh, I found a bug.
Keep clicking on one of the circles until like 100small circles appear, the shadows freeze and disappear.

"AS" stands for ActionScript, which is the scripting language Adobe Flash uses to create dynamic content, like games.

You can get a free 30-day trial of Flash from adobe.com:
http://www.adobe.com/products/flash/?promoid=BPDEE
(click 'Download free trial" on the left side)

I used to do AS but then school came along and I forgot most of them. I can still make some though, it's hard.

I can help you learn ActionScript, but first I'd recommend that you get familiar with using Flash to make animations first, so you know about movie clips and the timeline. You can download a free trial of Flash on Adobe's website if you don't have one already. Send me a PM when you're ready.

Flash is about $200. You can download the trial for free if you're poor.
