Hi, I normally develop in Blitz Basic but I'm executing a contract where I have no choice but to develop in Flash. The syntax of actionscript is simple enough but I'm really unhappy with the way I have to enter it in the program, making crap in the editor, linking actions to it, making buttons ,etc. I've heard mumblings that "professional" Flash game developers do their coding outside of the Flash editor, more like traditional programming. I'm wondering if anyone can confirm this and if possible, link me to any resources (software and / or books and websites) on this method. Don't get me wrong - I like Flash but I'm used to a more typical way of programming and I can't imagine doing a complicated game project using the methods I've learned so far. Thanks in advance for any advice!
