Flash Game Development Inter-web mash up : May. 26, 2008

news.as3gaming.com is doing an excellent job of culling together blogs and resources on Flash gaming, AS3, etc every day. Add it to your book marks or your Bloglines, put it in your RSS reader, add it to your face book or Myspace page… or whatever the kids are using now.

www.triqui.com is a new portal from Emanuele Feronato. It is run by a Flash developer for Flash developers. We haven’t submitted and games to it yet, but we certainly will today.

I hadn’t seen this before, but GameSheep.com has a nice, very detailed tutorial on making a Racing Game in Flash. Part 1 is up and part 2 is ont he way.

There has been a nice influx of DIY sites and blogs and sites s in our growing, vibrant grass roots Flash game creation culture. Some Brand New Blogs to check out:
flashth.blogspot.com (By|)ereck). This one seems to cover a variety of topics including making Flash games.
blogflashgaming.blogspot.com (by hazzard77). This one covers and reviews Flash games extensively.
blog.elite-games.net (by badim). This one covers mostly how to make money from Flash games.

Tonypa has been on fire lately, creating a huge number of new games for distribution on portals, winning contests, etc. Check out his new and old stuff here.

Searching around Actionscript.org, I found a great article on the basics of using the Box2d Physics engine by Paul Schoneveld.

Kirupa has a tutorial on Loading an External Image in AS3. This very detailed and aimed at beginners (for the most part). It gives great step by step directions on using URLRequest, LoaderInfo, ProgressEvent, addChild and more to accomplish this task.

That’s it for this week. If you have a blog that you would like included in the round-up, please email us. Also, you can stay informed every day by visiting http://www.flashgameblogs.com/.
