2. Create and Save a New Actionscript 3 .fla File
When you open the Flash authoring tool for the first time, you’ll likely see a splash screen. To create a new file, etiher click “Create New Flash File (Actionscript 3.0)”, or go to File > New and choose Flash File (Actionscript 3.0) from the list, and click OK.
Your Flash file opens up and is displayed in all its glory – tons of interesting buttons and panels all over the screen. Don’t be intimidated. We’ll explore them in future lessons.
Click File>Save As in the menus. Flash files have the extension .fla. Change the name of your Flash working file to myFirstGame.fla (or whatever you like), and save it to a folder somewhere on your computer. Remember where you saved it! i recommend against saving it to the desktop – if you want it there, first create a folder on the desktop called MyFirstGame, and save your .fla file in there.
Look at all this great STUFF to mess around with! (note: Flash supports all kinds of different layouts – you may see something different on your screen depending on the version and layout you’re using)
3. Create a New FlashDevelop Project
- Open FlashDevelop.
- In the menus, go to Project > New Project.
- Choose a name for your project in the Name field. (You can call it MyFirstGame. Seems logical.)
- Use the Browse button to point to the MyFirstGame folder you created, where saved your .fla file in the last step.
- Click OK.
- If you get a message saying “The directory is not empty …”, click OK to confirm.
- If FlashDevelop asks you the Author name, type your own name or a suitable pseudonym, like “Cap’n CrackyPants”. All of the code you write will be signed with this name.

When you’re finished, check out the Project Panel, at the right side of the screen. (If you can’t see it, click View > Project Manager in the menus.) You’ll see your Project name, MyFirstGame. Then you’ll see the .fla file you created in Flash, called myFirstGame.fla. All of the code files you write to make your game will be listed here, along with any other files you place in the MyFirstGame folder.
Behind the scenes, FlashDevelop creates an .as3proj file in the folder, which is a metadata file that keeps track of what goes into the folder. Once you create your Project file, you never have to save it like you would most other files – you can just open and close different Project files, and they’ll list the stuff that’s in the folder with them.
4. Link FlashDevelop to Flash
The last thing to do is to make FlashDevelop aware of the Flash authoring tool so that the two can play nicely together.
- In the menus, click Tools>Program Settings or press F10.
- Click ASCompletion in the sidebar list.
- Click in the field labeled “Path to Flash IDE”, and navigate to wherever you installed the Flash tool on your computer. On my Windows system, it’s here:
C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Flash CS4
- Click the Close button.

The $72 PC
Pick your parts carefully and you can make your own computer for the price of a months worth of lattes
By Dave Prochnow
With antiquated components flooding the surplus-parts market and free operating systems only a click away, building a fully functional computer has never been such a bargain. No, the $72 PC wont replace your new dual-core, Vista-shredding laptop. But with its compact size and solid-state components (no hard drive or CD drive), its perfect for building into custom enclosures and for specific tasks like Web surfing or playing games. The computer boots from a USB flash drive running an operating system called Damn Small Linux that can handle just about any job
Almost all distros (versions) of Linux are FREE. You can find hundreds of versions available for download here:
Now that page can be a bit confusing, and of course you are faced with wondering which version would be right for you, so I usually recommend Ubuntu, which you can find here:
You can create a Bootable CD or even a Bootable Flash Drive and not have to install anything, run the new OS right off the CD to see if you like it:
That guy is outta his mind.by kaffeinefix
Starting from scratch, you'd have to buy the CPU, Motherboard, RAM, Hard Disk, DVD drive, Case, Power supply and Operating system.
That'll cost you at LEAST $400 right there. And that's if you're pretty good at getting deals/know what you're doing.
THEN you add keyboard (assuming it's from scratch and not using pre-existing components) and mouse, monitor, speakers and whatever else you may need a computer to do. Like, a flash reader. I haven't even brought up the graphics card needed to run today's games!
Now you're talking $500-$900
Of course you can salvage existing parts, re-vamp an old one off craigslist or upgrade your existing PC
