Q:(my infatuation with Thomas persists, so here's an ask about any notable person thats currently a part of his life and his relationship with them)
Q:Um! If I may ask *A* Where did you get your code snippets from >A<? I don't think I can make something as epic as what you two did, but maybe one day I can *A*!
I google the function that I need [play, rewind, mute/unmute, preloader] and the solution usually crops up on developer forums like stackoverflow. Bear in mind that there is probably more than one way to do what you want in actionscript 3 [or any code for that matter :B] so you may still have to try a few solutions to get one that suits your needs.
Code snippets with commentary are even better since it helps you go through the logic and help with any future tweaks. I tend to leave my own little comments since I sometimes forget why exactly I added a certain line :B
For example, here s the exact tutorial/code base used to make the preloader:
Here for basic mute/unmute functions [look at comment 3]:
Hope this helps * w*
Q:Hello Mr. Awesome Dunkley! I'm DreamPiper! Less than Worthy Friend of Miss Painted BEE! *-* I saw your awesome html flashy comicy Nevers project and was wondering what you did to create such an epic piece of artwork? *A*
Hello to you as well Ms. DreamPiper ’ w’ ! I am incredibly happy that you liked our first independent shot at a flow comic, and we hope to eventually ramp up production as time goes by ’ A’ ~<3! [Depends at how fast i can get my commissions and contracts in order].
The initial scenes and layout I sketched out in photoshop. I made sure to roughly cut the parts out into foreground[fg], midground[mg] and background[bg] elements.
Mandy then comes in and works her painting magic to make the scenes and characters look all beautiful. I then toss in any lighting or background tweaks and save out the fg, mg and bg elements as png-24 files [for transparency].
We then take the pngs and load them up into Adobe Flash according to their scenes. This is were all the moving magic [panning] and sound is done, and I add small effects like blur and movement acceleration/decceleration.
The movie buttons/controls [forward, backward, audio on/off] were done using actionscript 3.0 inside the flash project. I essentially looked for existing code/script and cutty-pasted them into the project [At best I can modify existing actionscript, but I rely on more competent programmers and their code :p ]
Again, thanks for leaving such a nice ask :D ! We hope to improve our production pace in the future.

Well this was a long time coming, and with so little to show. But here’s the first scene of the first chapter, of the first ‘book’ of Nevers!
It’s not fully refined yet, but consider it a kind of ‘sneak peak’ or ‘beta test’ if you prefer.
Please let us know things like if you’ve had difficulty reading anything or figuring out how to go to the next page, etc. Because, yanno…if no one knows how to navigate/progress the story, that’s kind of important.
Otherwise, I hope you folks dig so far! * U* Cheers!!
Guys, Sean and I made a thing!
:D !!! Still needs some good tweaking but well on it’s way.
More sketches from that Italian restaurant in North Beach, which had a Kazakh waitress, widely varied clientele, and an excellent view of intriguing passers-by.
It was our anniversary on monday and we…both completely forgot about it LMAO.
Seven years of shared absent-mindedness, chaos, insanity, and crazy, crazy loooooveeee.
aaa my kawaii senpai, I’m so glad you noticed me!
A great 7 years with my favourite gal. Happy Belated anniversary my dear :D <33333
