the footer is fantastic! reminds me of kill bill :thumbsup:

I love it! however...

We only allow footers to be less than 6kb. So, unless you can REALLY
reduce the file size, we're going to have to ask you to remove it.

why not just draw it in flash? and duplicate the clips so the fileszize stays small.

based on what this is, I have no idea why the file size is that big. You could draw everything on this in flash. Are you using jpgs?

saying he draws the whole thing in flash once, and then reuses it over as he needs -- yes. He could easily do this footer in flash usingonly 5 graphics, and then as many instances of each necessary for the animation.

- sword
- dude
- bg
- blood
- dudes

I have no jpgs.
I've made it so that the main characters animations is made in the scene and the "dudes" are the same movieclip. I think its the blood that makes the file size huge since the first animation I made was by drawing the blod with the pensil. I've erased most of that blood now but some is still there. could try to fix that but i dont think that'll do much.

I'm no expert but I don't think that animation can be done under 6KB(13 if the mods let you sacrifice your avatar :wink: ) without creating/animating everything with actionscript.

Which means ALOT of stuff like this, :wink:
Code: [ Select ]
_root.createEmptyMovieClip( "box", 1 );
       with ( _root.box ){
           colors = [ 0xFF0000, 0x0000FF ];
           alphas = [ 100, 100 ];
           ratios = [ 0, 0xFF ];
           matrix = { a:200, b:0, c:0, d:0, e:200, f:0, g:200, h:200, i:1 };
       beginGradientFill( "linear", colors, alphas, ratios, matrix );
       moveto(100,100);
       lineto(100,300);
       lineto(300,300);
       lineto(300,100);
       lineto(100,100);
       endFill();

       }
box.duplicateMovieClip("box2",2);
  1. _root.createEmptyMovieClip( "box", 1 );
  2.        with ( _root.box ){
  3.            colors = [ 0xFF0000, 0x0000FF ];
  4.            alphas = [ 100, 100 ];
  5.            ratios = [ 0, 0xFF ];
  6.            matrix = { a:200, b:0, c:0, d:0, e:200, f:0, g:200, h:200, i:1 };
  7.        beginGradientFill( "linear", colors, alphas, ratios, matrix );
  8.        moveto(100,100);
  9.        lineto(100,300);
  10.        lineto(300,300);
  11.        lineto(300,100);
  12.        lineto(100,100);
  13.        endFill();
  14.        }
  15. box.duplicateMovieClip("box2",2);

joebert: Drawing with actionscript isn't necessarily better than drawing on the stage. For each character and line of code, your file size goes up just a tad.

I don't know the, 1.9 kb SWF that this example spits out has me eager to learn more about it.

The drawing API is indeed useful in many many ways and is a good thing to know. Just in certain situations it's not always the best option :)

Sort of like how people always trying to use actionscripted motion instead of tweens. In certain situations that will cause you more headache than it is worth just to save a few Kbs.
