    All I really want to know is if you ever think you'd have to apply a filter to only one layer (the backgrounds, character, and enemies are all separate layers), because if I render the world as one...

    The only reason most 3d games suck or are copies is because the people with the resources to produce them need to return a profit with as little risk as possible, and what's less risky than copying...

    It was. I made a much smaller one in AS2 once, but even that was with vector coordinates. I decided to roll with art-based, because it's a lot easier and faster to produce.

    Hittest is really rudimentary for a platformer. I made an art-based engine that uses bitmaps and getPixel() collisions. It's much more flexible and efficient than hitTest.

    I keep the scores in two different variables, and modify them as separate entities, then change them both by the same value every interval. The total score is both the variables added together.

    I think AS3 has made things harder that used to be easier. They've done a good job of adding lots of extra capabilities that will allow better games to be made. AS3 definitely needs fixing though. ...
