    This is what realy drives me mad:
    http://www.flashkit.com/movies/Games...81/index.shtml

    this is the PacMan game listed in the top100 movies with a score 9.5. The real trought is that this game belongs to one of the greatest Flash Scripters mr. Francesco Pastore. The 2 guys simply changed the front page and published the game as theirs. I did not see any credits given to the the one who scripted it...dont trust me look in the code and tell me why tunisian programmer will bother to write a code in Italian/Spanish.
    The same thing is happaning with the game Invaders submited again as open source from the tunisian designers with front page changed the script again belongs to mr. Pastore.
    Both games PacMan and Invaders were submited about 1y ago to the FlashPlanet as open source fla. Now when I looked closer the above game says at the front page Created by:

    If they think that will go unnoticed they are wrong..Ill ask Mark Fenell to put down thouse 2 games...FlashKit will never encourege stuff like this..

    Mad_sci

    PS I realy wish to know mr. Pastore he is great.

    I admirer you Mad-Sci, for looking out for other peoples best interests.

    From what I can tell dame near all flashers are thieves! I stopped posting my works in-progress a log time ago. When I found some one was using a flash4 hacking utility to steal my game code, and post .fla’s on his site. Of my work with different graphics and his name all over them! Thankfully when I emailed him he stopped but, I had no way of telling how many people where stealing my work so I pulled the plug on my site.

    It amazes me the amount of .fla’s here in the download section I have seen with exactly the same code in them and a completely different creator.

    Well this kind of stuff piss me off.

    Hummm… what a gloomy post… I think, I need to just smile and nod

    Meow!

    They just changed the front page only. the codes match 100% they did not even bother to change the variable names...

    straight... blunt....

    That’s how I could tell my work was being stolen, when 99% of the code is the same and variables are still named “uiKat = debug_mode” .

    You get the picture.

    hmm.. Maybe 20 mins in Tunisia is like 20 normal hours? Or maybe he couldn't get away from work and slept over there? Or perhaps his father/son came home from a 1-month-long trip, and he wanted to have some quality time with him?

    No?

    Well if it's not that, I don't know!

    itsn't all our work, pastone post a version that don't work and it read from a .txt file which is not acceptable in any site
    we download his work we perform it then we post it and hi take 1 year after we send our pacman to send a version that work
    NB: the copy send here in flashkit by pastore still have problem and we have a copy more evoluate than the one post here
    NB : i find many copy of pacman and they are copy of our work they just change the color or add a section called option or add sound and they never mention us
    for us itsn't a problem because what we hope is that flash grow more and more and its'nt a trophy to get

    issamneo, everything would be better if you just kept your mouth shut.

    You are not going to get any better status after this, that's for sure!

    Hmmm... I think you should have someone have a look at you... This post prooves just what kind of person you are. Proberbly some 12 year old with a big mouth. This forum is well known for it's community, to bad there are people like you who screw this up.

    It's very unproffesional to use someones open source, take out his credits, change the graphics and put your own name in there. And then still try to convince people you didn't do that, even while the whole board knows it. It's even more unprofesional to swear at people you don't know while knowing you're the one who did something wrong.

    I've made a screenshot, and it would be better for you to remove your post and say sorry. Or I'm afraid I will have to talk with an admin.
