Hi,
After seeing flyers with suggestions to buy games for mobile phones sticked everywhere and people buying & playing this games, thought that it might be a good idea to try develop some. :p

Screen from someone's game:

Question - can a flash-based game be somehow converted into the needed format to be playable on a mobile phone?

Thanx!

one of these games screen shots is clearly labled cocoa soft. You shouldnt be posting these unless you have permission or are the copyright holder, also I dont see the purpose of posting these, why not just ask a question.

You need to create the game as a SWF appropriate for your target device audience, assuming there is a flash player available.

one of these games screen shots... to give an idea of what is a mobile phone game. Maybe not everybody knows them :confused: !

Just installed Flash MX 2004 Pro. it even has some templates for mobile phones :cool: . While i'm not sure what's with the player, are they already in phones? Or should be also somehow installed? :confused:

Thanx!

What's strange is that when I place some elements from the game into this template ( kuzmich and background in this case ), it give some errors on publishing.

http://www.elena-antimonova.com/BRT/temp1.jpg

**Error** Symbol=muzhik, layer=Layer 1, frame=1:Line 1: You must export your movie as Flash 5 to use this action.
onClipEvent (enterFrame) {

**Error** Symbol=muzhik, layer=Layer 1, frame=1:Line 2: You must export your movie as Flash 5 to use this action.
if (Key.isDown(Key.SPACE)) {

**Error** Symbol=muzhik, layer=Layer 1, frame=1:Line 3: You must export your movie as Flash 5 to use this action.
_parent.play();

**Error** Symbol=muzhik, layer=Layer 1, frame=1:Line 5: You must export your movie as Flash 5 to use this action.
_root.zamax.start();

**Error** Symbol=muzhik, layer=Layer 1, frame=1:Line 8: You must export your movie as Flash 5 to use this action.
_parent.stop();

**Error** Symbol=muzhik, layer=Layer 1, frame=5:Line 1: You must export your movie as Flash 5 to use this action.
onClipEvent (enterFrame) { ... and so on...

How do I "export my movie as Flash 5 to use this action" ?


Thanx!

Flash is available for these families of mobile devices:

PocketPCs (Flash 6)
Some Sony Clie Palm devices (Flash 5)
Some Symbian devices - Motorolla A920 Nokia Communicator series (Flash 5)
imode phones 505i,900i (FlashLite player - much like Flash 4)

Choose the export version from the publish settings window.

supposedly the series 60 3650 and 7650 phones will use FlashLite (a derivative of the Flash 4 player).

However, Macromedia has not yet finalized the details for distributing the Flash platform for these phones, so these phones do not yet support flash, eventhough there is a template for them in mx pro.

If you are aiming at 3650/7650 and imode market then you need to learn how to remake your game to be compatible with Flash 4 ActionScript. Get the FlashLite CDK from the link I previously posted to learn more.

So you mean that one can NOT yet play Flash games on Nokia 3650/7650 phones? Nor can they install FlashLite on them? :confused:

Hmm... maybe there is some converter progy to convert SWFs into Java or whatever works with most phones :cool: ?

Thanx!
