Well, trying in the "race" trying to beat my friends in animating sprites in Flash...I have been falling far behind. Although, they don't exactly know much in action script other than:
Yes, I know, extremely simple code, and probably the only code that you "really" would need. But, I have been hearing about these "engines", that were made in action script. Such as movement, physics. particle, and parallax engines. I would really like to learn how to make something like that in action script, although, I do realize that that is most certainly not a beginner task.
So, recently I have been trying to "learn" it. Copying and pasting isn't helping. So I tried to watch tutorials. Which, also do not really "teach" you anything. Pretty much just watching someone else do it, and mimicking them. I want to actually learn what the stuff means. Or how it is organized will help make the code operatable. Now, I do know some of this:
I just want to actually "learn" this. I mean, trying to do it just based on regular words I know without any programming knowledge is a little hard. I want to know a good place to start where I can like, learn it like anything else. Something that will help me actually "learn" it and so that I can code without using previously made codes. Please, help me ouuutttt. D:
