Skin Rendering with Away3D 4.1 and Stage3D

Dungeoneer – a cute little puzzle game

Dungeoneer

Dungeoneer

Welcome to Dungeoneer!

This is a puzzle game I made in which you must find your path to the exit to go to the next level.

You need to visit each dungeon tile, but only once! Each time you make a mistate you will loose a heart. You also need to watch that the time dosen’t run out. And yeah, dont fall over the edge!

The control is done by mouse.

The sample is just a demo. You get 12 levels in the full game.

[ AS3] Masking Dynamic Content TextField and cacheAsBitmap

Ok, this is a quick post.

In a little project I am working right now I had to do some effects involving some textfield masking.  The problem I had is that the text was never masked and it always was visible on the display list. To solve this problem I had to use the cacheAsBitmap propriety of display objects. Once I set that to true everything went smooth.
