I want to know how to make a flash game. I am trying to learn flash script but it doesn't make much sense.

I want it to be a platform game with projectiles. Basically a Mario with big guns and a few grenades.

Any help would be appreciated

I don't think anyone here will be able to help you with that. The tech discussion forums are mainly for hardware and some software issues. My advice is to go take some flash tutorials, learn flash a lot, specifically scripting, and you should be able to do it eventually.

You don't have to give them an address to download it, all you do is agree to the licence agreement...

Mario with guns? Is that what we've come to? :rolleyes: This guy is clearly not a gamer if "Mario" is the first thing that comes to mind when thinking of a combination of platforming, and guns.

Flash Player? Flash Scripting? "Specifically online alternatives".

Sounds like a poorly worded sales pitch. I call Spam on this one.

Look, you can't use "Flash Player" to create "Flash Games". You can't even use it to create "Flash Scripts". (Probably "Action Scripts"). For that you will need a full copy of Flash CS.

Anything you list will be second rate. Which might be fine for a few basic Flash objects, such as ads,... A game would not be so forgiving, if you want people to play the game, you will purchase a copy of Flash CS, or make the game without Flash altogether.

Appealing to gamers by suggesting a crappy game, yeah that will go over well... Mario with guns, made wih a free alternative,... :rolleyes:

sorry I didn't mean flash player I meant flash editor. But even still i cant get it because it makes you give them your address to download it, and phone number and some other stuff like organization and employees. And a fake address might screw someone else over and I try to be nice to people i don't know.

For things like that just put stuff like 123 Fakestreet and (555) 555-5555. That's what I always do. Also employees and organization isn't required. You should be fine.
