    Action Script 2 or 3

    nu_guy Level 1
      That about says it all. I'm finding a lot more tutorials and examples of Action Script 2 on the web, but it looks like Action Script 3 is more powerful. It's a shame that a lot of the language in 2 doesn't work in 3.

      So I'm asking a little helpful advice here, which way would you go? I'm leaning to 3 but don't want to get into something that may have to be rewritten in 2 later on for compatibility.

          AS3 is really new so there are vey few tutorials. AS3 only plays on Flash Player 9 and above.

          It's a tough call since Player 9 has not reached full penetration yet. But if it were me I would skip AS2. They are very different and it'd be twice the work to learn both, only to discard what you learned about AS2 in a year.
