My friend and I are getting together on our first game. He wants to use Flash for the graphics and wants me to use action script that comes with flash for the programming. I don't want to learn action script because it is very limited. Does anyone know a way to use flash animation with dark basic?

If not, he can convert the still images to jpeg or bmp. How do we animate still images? Can you use animated gifs? The only things that are going to move is the main character and 2-3 other characters, but their movements will be predefined. We will have mouse over points where if you click, the character will walk to that certain place. I haven't found any tutorials that cover 2d animation in the way I need it explained to me. I know nothing about animation. Thanks for any help!

You can't use Flash in Darkbasic. Not that I know of anyway. You can only use BMP, JPG, TGA, DDS, DIB or PNG. Images. To animate still images you can arrange an image like a film strip with more than one frame in it, then use Get image command to seperate it. Then display the right image at the right time
