Ah. Are you saying that GML is easier than AS?

Well, I have to say that it's easier. But AS is waay powerful. That's why it does have a bunch of lines for everything. It can control a lot of stuff.

That didn't make sense at all. Are you saying that the code syntax of AS doesn't look like English?
ok i was on my phone when i typed that.its like THIS:
ACTION SCRIPT:
my_sound = new Sound();
my_sound.attachSound("mix1");
play();

that was action script play sound thing
heres gamemakers:
sound_play(index)
its shorter and is easier to understand.

Yeah that's what sucks about AS, to use anything from the library it has to be specified first and designated, sounds and movieclips. But you don't have to "attachSound" every time, I'm pretty sure all you have to do is declare a list of them before hand, then you can just call them whenever you want with the function, like Game Maker.

And yes, there is more to be concerned with when using AS's syntax, but you'd be amazed how similar the languages are.


Actionscript:
onClipEvent(load)
{
if(magic=1)
{
ball._x=5;
ball._xscale=1;
ball._alpha=1;
}
}


Game Maker Language:
(this would go in a Code action in an object's Create event...)
if magic=1
{
ball.x=5;
ball.image_xscale=1;
ball.image_alphe=1;
}

i know.they can be simalar.and i know action script can be more powerful (but it needs more coding lines).action script can get very weird some times.

flash just tells you where the error is.anyway lets get back on topic before you do something
