    What I Need To Know

    Ok...I've started to use flash and made a few games and played around with it(signature). And I know how to use HTML.
    I was wondering what I should learn to become a better web designer in general, for sites or really cool games.

    e.g. PHP,ASP?

    PHP and ASP are server side languages that are used to generate dynamic content and talk back and forth with databases and servers. Knowing one would help with keeping track of high scores and stuff in games but they aren't used to generate too many games unless you want to get real advanced and have people play eachother. My partner knows ASP and SQL very well and it has worked great. I am partial to it since I use it in projects I do but there are many here who will swear by PHP. Just take your pick.

    Other languages to learn:
    DHTML
    VBScript
    Java

    VB is different than VBScript. VBScript is basically Microsofts responce to javascript (just like that is different from Java). To write vbscript, you can use anything like notepad or Interdev.
