SmartFoxServer, Actionscript (AS3), PHP & MySQL MMO References

Comments 3 Standard

I’ve been programming in AS3 and working with Flash a lot lately in an effort to get my first MMO up and running. I’ve found a lot of useful links I always forget to bookmark (or can’t find where I bookmarked them) so I’m posting them all here.

  1. we are looking for a person to head up a team that can work with us to extend our flash/sfserver based world called http://www.woogiworld.com. Its part of a larger educational program called Woogi Academy (www.woogiacademy.com). We are looking at alternatives to convert everything or parts of the world to mobile. For example one of the more successful curriculum components that we have is called Woogi English (www.woogienglish.com). We need to have that content accessible from mobile IOS and Android devices.

    Please contact me if you’re interested scottldow@gmail.com

    thanks

    Scott
