If you noticed, my last post about AS2 coding is New tile based platform engine – part 11 – slopes part b, almost a month ago.
I decided to quit talking about AS2 because I am not using it anymore, excluding a couple of games I am about to complete.
I am not that happy I had to learn a language I won’t use anymore, but this happened a lot of times in my life… from Commodore Basic to AS2, including AMOS, Pascal and some more.
When a programmer quits a language, it’s not a big problem, but when a blogger does it, he should think about his readers that don’t want to migrate to a new language.
While I don’t want to force anybody, let me share some thoughts:
Even if you don’t have the money, I suggest you to download the trial, make a couple of simple games in a month and raise the funds to buy the license.
All new cool libraries are written in AS3, just think about BOX2D and the games you can make with it.
A PROgrammer **must** know the latest languages, not the old ones. Soon you won’t find any AS2 tutorial around the web.
Last but not least, you can make your own custom tombstone at tombstonebuilder.com.
What about old AS2 tutorials? Well, the most successful ones will be translated into AS3 using classes. Which one would you like to see first?
