There’s a great recording of Adobe Platform Evangelist Lee Brimelow on USTREAM answering 50 questions put to him by the Flash community. His answers give an interesting insight into Adobe’s strategy for the Flash platform and also helped confirm things that many suspected. He confirmed that Adobe are deliberately pushing developers towards Flash Builder and […]

That’s exactly what I said to concept extraordinaire Steve K and he happily obliged. The image below is a render from the 3D model Alan has produced from Steve’s artwork. So what’s this character’s name then? Well his friends (and his enemies) simply call him Croc and as you can no doubt guess he’s the […]

It’s the simple things that make me happy. Conditional compilation is one such thing and although it has been available since Flash CS4 those developing for mobile have been unable to take advantage of it. Why? Well to-date mobile developers have been limited to Flash Lite and ActionScript 1/2, whereas conditional compilation is only available […]

If you’re lucky enough to own a touchscreen Nokia rather than one of those smelly iPhones or HTC thingies then you’ll be able to play the latest version of my Russian roulette game that is now available from clickgamer. It’s the ideal game for making bets with friends and family. I’ve won a considerable amount […]

‘What the heck is GamesFlash?’ I hear you ask. ‘Is this another one of your hugely ambitious personal projects that never got finished Mr Caleb?’ Well yes and no. You see I did actually finish this one, although I do confess to having spent the last three years of my life on it. Strictly speaking, […]

Well that’s the revolver code from my Russian roulette game rewritten for touchscreen. Having touch support has allowed me to make things a little more interesting, with the user now being able to tinker with individual parts of the gun, which you can see in the video below. Considering how tricky resistive touchscreens can be […]

Bad news for anyone waiting to get their hands on the Flash CS5 public beta. Adobe have just announced that in order to deliver the final version of Flash CS5 as soon as possible they’ve cancelled the beta release that was to be made available at the end of the month. Adobe’s announcement at Max […]

I usually package my mobile projects into SIS files for deployment onto S60 devices. However, Nokia in their infinite wisdom have made the whole packaging and signing process as difficult and as expensive as possible for small independent developers or those wishing to simply create some freeware. You can skip the signing process and kindly […]
