hello everyone,
I'm trying to teach myself actionscript 3.0 to make games.
I don't have flash cs3 because it is way too expensive but i did download the flex 3 sdk.
I also downloaded FlashDevelop so that I can code and run the AS3 code directly.
Just wondering if it is possible to make a decent flash game in this way, basically using code only and not the flash cs3 program.
so far i've drawn circles and had them move across the stage so i'm still a ways away from making a game.
Is it alot harder to make a game without the flash program?

It is perfectly possible to make a game from only Actionscript 3 or 2 as well. However it does become harder to make a game if you cant use the Flash Cs3 Ide to make graphics and so on and so forth. This can be counter acted by using external resources in your files. Does this clarify, or do you want me to explain a bit more, or give you some help with coding ?
