    As with all of these articles, the right column cuts off important text, even code!  Who is the webmaster for these pages, anyway?  Would be nice if someone looked at what they wrote to see if it was complete.  Otherwise, good article, just frustrating not being able to see it all.

    Dear Guys.

    My classmate and I are making a flash game for a school project using Visual basics.

    The game is a ‘side scroller’ skateboarding game where the player’s character (side on) moves across the screen jumping objects.

    We ask your help because you seem to have exceptional expertise in this field.

    Could you please tell us how to make an image move, using commands, gravity principles, scores, etc and how to import a picture without the back ground.

    thank you very much

    Alex and Liam

    Big Smile

    I am trying to write a games program in VB2008.I download the directx Oct., 2006 program. I have to add references Microsoft. Directx, Microsoft.Direct3DX and Microsoft.Direct3D. I cannot find the Direct3D in the references list. I found the other two. I did a DXDIAG and it said Direct3D is enabled. How Can I get it into the references? Thanking you.

      Dear alex flash games are written in 'Flash' which is a frame based animation tool, not visual basic. Either you have no knowledge of this part of the computer world, or need a dictionary.

    @Roby718 not everyone is a native english speaker or knows everything about programming.  We were all n00bs at some point, heck, i still think of myself as a newbie at times
