  1. "Hello World is played out." Okay, you were correct (back in 2009) but no one complains about it nowadays (2019) which leads me to a conclusion (one I always suspected but can't actually prove): only "Hello World" type people are programming nowadays (in 2019). Flash was very accessible to creative/visual/artist types. Maybe it's our shorter attention spans or perhaps even lower IQs but it takes a lot more than "Hello World" to tickle our brains – whereas 'Hello World' tutes cause non-visual types to instantly understand how things are connected and then they're off to the races – and good for them, don't get me wrong – I just think the world still needs Flash – nowadays, all the creatives are makinging YouTube vids – and they're great but Flash animations/content/humor/games were amazing – but it's all gone now poof like the Library of Alexandria. Am I exaggerating? No. The future will never know the life changing feeling of interacting with Joe Cartoon's "Gerbil in a Microwave". Yes, it's on YouTube and you can "watch" it but you can't interact with it – that whole creative space is locked away. HTML5 was supposed to be better than Flash – LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL rant over, bye >:(

  2. I need your help sooooooo bad. I just purchased this virtual mp3 player and nobody is able to help me create it with actionscript. I see how good you are with it if I paid you, would you help me? I will give you my email address or whatever. I really want to create this. I get an error message that says; Scene 1, Layer 'Layer 1; Frame1, Line 2: 1037: Packages cannot be nested. {. Trust me, I believe I'm just putting stuff in the wrong places. Please help, if you can.

  3. Great tutorial! Thank you very much.

    I would like to put in formulas in my flash project, and see that I can use something called mathjax. Do you have any experience with that?
