In flixel for absolute beginners I showed you how to complile a flixel project with Flex Builder 3.
I was ready to make an “hello world” but I received some emails from people asking for a FlashDevelop step by step installation.
It seems FlashDevelop is more popular than FlexBuilder 3… anyway here it is:
First, you need to download the free Flex 3 SDK and unzip it anywhere in your hard disk.
Then, open FlashDevelop and follow these steps:
AS3 Project, give your project a name and a path
Copy the entire content of the flixel package into the
src folder FlashDevelop just created
Project window, delete
Always Compile property of
Test the project
If it’s you first time running the project, set the
Flex SDK Location attribute according to the path of your SDK, then test the project again, and you’ll see the demo platformer.
