    Jigsaw Puzzle Game

    Has anyone here ever created a jigsaw puzzle game where the pieces are cut out using masks? I'm working on a jigsaw game, but masking slows the computer down too much. Just wondered if anyone else found a way to solve this problem. Thanks!

    I created this using 72+ dynamic masks and its purdy fast on my sad 400 MHz 384 SDRAM. If it IS NOT slow on your computer make sure you are using _visible = false; rather than _alpha = 0; if you are using that at all.

    No, I'm not using either of those codes. Where should I use them at? Here's an example of the game so far. The pieces are very slow when you try to drag them.

    When I made that face flipper I needed to show and hide pieces according to what the user clicked. The first time I tried using blah._alpha = 0; and the movie was VERY slow. Then I did blah._visible = false; and it is as is now.

    You probably aren't hiding any peices so I don't know why it is going so slow.

    No, I'm not hiding any pieces. I'd really like to see an example of a puzzle game done this way, but I can't seem to find any open-source ones like that. They all seem to already have the picture broken up into pieces.

    I tried making jigsaw puzzle using masks, where you could load whole picture into it and the placement of puzzle pieces was also changed in each game. Sadly, I ran into same problem of the game being way too slow to playable. If you want to see it, I could look up the example when I get home.

    Hi,

    Here is something I made a long time ago.
    There is no depth sorting and it's pretty crude, but it is quick considering It's 12fps.
    Can't remember how i made it though

    Will have a look for the fla when I get home. Meanwhile I will have a think.

    I guess I will just have to cut the puzzle pieces by hand. Thanks for all the help!

    flashisland - how did you get the pieces to stick togather and be draggable as a group?

    many thanks,
