Another critical point is that AS2 SWF make it difficult to integrate to another AS3 project, have your client had ever ask you to integrate those two thing together ? Compatibility is a huge issue many of you may not think about.
+1 Exactly why I said that using it is ok on a stand alone piece.
you may not notice a difference in speed but it is faster and everything adds up. plus we should optimize as much as possible for mobile.personally I love data typing because it reminds me what something is. when I work with JS or php it’s the #1 thing I miss.
come ooooon! i love php because it’s really hard to crash things in php… it keeps working either way… it does not give error for every (L)ucking type missmatch (:
you can still use it with type declarations though..
Break the AS2 habits VF Once you start writing AS3 in classes with typed vars, you’ll never want to work with AS2 again (or write anything on the timeline)
With that I heartily agree…before you know it you’ll be using the flash IDE solely for asset creation; compiling all your graphic elements into SWCs and instantiating them on the fly…
