Version 1.3 of my Flash 8 Jukebox is just about ready. Just a little more testing is needed.

Then I've been asked to make some easy to edit games for work. Again in Flash 8:

Quack Man
Goose Invaders
Pond

As you may have guessed, there's a water-fowl theme.

Currently I prototyping small game ideas using HTML5 and/or Actionscript3.0. Also keeping an eye on the upcoming flash player version (codename molehill).

HTML5 is looking like a decent and inexpensive platform for demo and game development - I really need to learn this.

HTML5 (just a buzzword actually) is really hype nowadays. There is a lot of high quality conferences about this topic. Big companies (even Adobe) are focussing on it. The idea behind it is cool - but current browser support is still not ready for productive use IMHO. Nevertheless, definately worth to keep an eye on.

I made some hacks to dosbox and captured a couple of classic dos demos which were only available in really bad quality (unless you own Mindcandy 1).
Since VGA runs at around 70fps but youtube only allows 30fps (and would require questionable conversion trickery), I decided to put them on capped:
Contrast by Oxygene
Inside by CNCD
Stars by Nooon
Dope by Complex
Megablast by Orange
Stuff by Xtacy
Heartquake by Iguana

Great stuff Hellfire! I've been going through all the videos you've uploaded on capped as there are a lot I've not seen before.

I'm working on more educational software - if you see anything you like, feel free to download it, as I have given up on trying to get our school to sell them.

Looking good CK0!

Instead of selling them directly you can try to implement ads in the swf's or on the page you linked. These also give you a very detailed breakdown of when/where and who are using these tools, which you can use to improve upon them.

Another suggestion I have is to provide a direct link to online versions of the programs. Downloadable standalone versions should IMO only serve as a last resort for those rare instances when people can't connect tot the www at their work place.

Thanks, it shouldn't take long to set up online versions of each program, which I can use to track overall useage and popularity.

I'll look into putting ads into the online versions, with the downloads remaining Ad-free.

I'm trying to develop a basic humanoid skeleton in 3D in Flash. It's getting there, and it just needs a bit of 3D trigonometry to get it working properly.

I'll put a SWF up on the internet when it is presentable.
