Flashlite and python games for my Nokia

Last week I bought my new mobile and I got a Nokia N73 phone.
After the first days playing with themes and ring tones, as usual with new toys :), I installed Flashlite 2.1! I must admit I never used and seen it before… so I decided to make a first quick experiment making a simple game.
Lucky that Adobe Device Central CS3 has just been released, so I could test the swf in different environments (even if I didnt understand how phones flashlite versions could be changed in the device central phone list..).

Anyway, finally I made this simple tetris remake with flashlite 2.1.
If you want to broke your phone you can try install it from here:

Tetrix flashlite
tetrix.zip (29 kB)

I also followed some tuts about creating .sis installer (for symbian phones) from here and also trying using other tolls such as SWF2GO but unfortunately I wan’t able to do that ๐Ÿ™

Python… oh python ๐Ÿ™‚
Then I discovered that there is a python version for series 60 (PyS60). I couldn’t believe to my eyes when I opened the Python shell from the phone menu! LOL

So, why not trying to make something also with python?
After installing tons and tons of software from Nokia, tutorials and example files I finally managed to start creating simple apps. Also this time I started with a simple game (my second fav arcade game): Asteroids.
This time I also managed to create the .sis file, even if not with the suggested process with py2sis, but using only Ensymble with this command:

1
ensymble_python2.5-0.22.py py2sis asteroidz.py asteroidz.sis --uid=0xA0002E1F --appname=asteroidz --caps="NONE" --lang=EN --shortcaption="asteroidz" --cert=mycert.cer --privkey=mykey.key --passphrase=password --verbose --version=1.0.1

You can download the Dissertation Future Work .sis file and the source directly here (it requiresย  python series 60 1.3.20 already installed):

Anyway, please note that this is incomplete, it’s merely a test just for understand the python graphical api from Nokia.

I just discovered a new world ๐Ÿ™‚

New Flash player 9,0,45 & Flex patch

If you’re a Flex 2 developer you should download the newly released Flash player 9.0.r45 debug version.

Once installed the new player remember to apply also this patch to Flex builder 2, otherwise it will throw you an error every time debugging an app (expecially if you’re using Firefox).
This patch also does the following:

“This patch allows the Flex SDK and Flex Builder to use SWFs and SWCs created by Flash CS3 Professional. After applying the patch you should be able to take classes and symbols compiled with Flash CS3 Professional and compile them into a Flex application. You should also be able to take classes and libraries compiled with Flex and use them in a Flash CS3 Professional project.

In addition, this patch allows the Flex debugger (fdb) to function correctly with Flash Player 9 (9.0.45.0) in the Mozilla browser.”

Actionscript Image filtering experiments

I never worked so much on image filters with Flash and ActionScript, but due to the current project we’re working on we (me and Gabriele) started enjoying the image filtering with Flash.
Ok, there’s still so much to learn, but it’s the beauty of discovering new worlds ๐Ÿ™‚
Even if for some multiple-pass filters the player is quite slow and so we need to make a step by step filter (applying the filter line per line).

However, here some of our experiments

genereAvventura finally in english!

Finally the italian guys at genereavventura.com finished the game translation into english! (see my previous post for the game presentation).
And if you ever played at “Day of the Tentacle” or some of the other old fashioned adventure game you must try it!

It must be really a great effort, in fact it took 6 months!
Play the english game: http://www.genereavventura.com

This is their official communication:
genereAvventura: The terrific menace of the Invaders from Audiogalaxy is out!

Having spent more than 3 years dedicating our free time to make this game, we proudly present version 1.0, which you can play directly on our website www.genereAvventura.com , now in English too!

General description

The terrific menace of the Invaders from Audiogalaxy (TTM, to name it briefly) is a project which has the purpose of achieving a game in Flash, playable directly via the web, and absolutely free.
It is supposed to have, above all, a complexity and longevity like those relatively early Adventure games that named this genre.
The authors, who loved, and still love, this type of game, wanted to pay homage to those masterpieces, by creating an original and independent story.
Anyway – throughout the game – it refers several times to all those games that had inspired it.

After a first period break, due to some members’ personal problems and because of the complexity of creating such a game, our team came back into action, re-thinking the purposes and the specifications of the game; for example the first things we had to eliminate was the possibility of solving some parts of the game without noticing it; in genereAvventura everything had to have a cause and a consequence.

Turin 2010.
How original: an alien spaceship is approaching Earth.
A beam fired from this interstellar craft hits the home of an unassuming boy, abducting him and his computer.
Onboard the spaceship he awakens trapped within a strange sealed transparent cell, destined to unravel the terrific menace before him.
To stop the invading aliens and their musical evil plan (to enslave all humanity of course) our young hero will have to undertake an adventure through time, visiting musical legends in Turin, London, and even the legendary Woodstock!

Technical Part

TTM doesn’t rewrite history.
Visually, the game is similar to the strange and schizophrenic style of “Day of the Tentacle”, without overdoing distortions and perspective styles.
It has a vivid and saturated colouring, with different settings and styles.
The drawing style of the characters is variable, from light caricature to lacking in any anatomical sense.
It is supposed to be similar to some of the classics of this genre And to be easily recognizable.
Every personage has his or her own different character, sometimes hilarious, sometimes ironic.
People who have played “point and click” games will find the gaming methods and interfaces natural and usable.

It’s a charming experience!
Start surfing the website: you will discover this adventure, and will make you relive old pleasures.
Continue with the game: it will be familiar to those who played graphic adventures in the Nineties.
Come back to the site: there will be forums and exclusive downloads for you!

Come and try it! And let us know what you think about it!
