confusing is the best word to describe the book Jun 21, 2006
I bought this book to learn how to program games in flash. I had no experience what so ever in programming, so maybe thats why I found this book ingredible confusing. The book tells you how to create a tetris game and a chess game. In the first pages of the book the author does a great job explaning how to go from one step to another, but only after some few pages he jumps around like crazy using terms that the program doesn`t have. Forinstens he change insert new symbol (which is in the program) to new clip (which isn`t in the program) Later in the book you figure out that its the same in his univers. There is alot of those confusing language in the book. The other problem in the book is that some describtions simply doesn`t work, forinstens he tells you to push on layer ones frame 1, then go to the edit actionscript, and write something there. Unfortunately atleast my actionscript tells me that"current selection cannot have actions applied to it" Then what? If you are in to puzzles, to figure out what the author actually means, then go for the book, because it give you a good idea of how to begin creating the most simple games in flash, but if you just wanna learn how to create a game with out having to figure out the many words for the same purpose the author use and some less confusing ways to the result, then don`t waste the money on this book!
