Well i've been going through some new tutorials to learn actionscript 3 (the beat em ups below is all actionscript 2.0) and i thought i was going great until i tried to re-do the beat em up with the newer language. It smacked me around all day today and I couldn't even cobble together internet code to make it work. In AS 3.0 everything seems to be more complicated but I know its more flexible and robust in the long run.
This is a simple character movement tutorial i worked on earlier today..lets just say this was pretty damn hard.
