Hello all,

need some advice and a push in the right direction.I want to learn action script to make flash games/applications just general creative behavior,and learn something cool and new.

i want to get started with action script, and bought a book called action script by derrick ypenburg

anyway i have a few questions:

1) i have never programmed (well only in basic on my c64 when i was like 16) are there many prerequisites to learning AS, i mean should i learn HTML / PHP first?

2) what is the best software to use to learn on? i was reading about flex...eclipse with AS3 plugin or should i just use flash cs3 / 4?

3) I guess i need to know Photoshop to make graphics etc? or is GIMP better?

any info appreciated...thanks in advance

I'll answer your questions in the order you asked them.

1. Yes, you should learn basic HTML/PHP if your planning to understand how to embed projects to the web.

2. Not sure of any software, but here's a good link for tutorials: Here.

3. For graphics, you could use any graphic-design software. There's Photoshop, GIMP, Paint, and several other free ones. Any of them are great, just choose which one you think has the features you want to use.
