Flixel Power Tools

Version 1.9 (final release)

November 28th 2013

By Richard Davey, Photon Storm

The Flixel Power Tools are a package of classes designed to provide extra functionality to your Flixel 2.5+ games.

Quick Install Guide

Copy the src and lib folders into your ActionScript project. All the classes for Flixel Power Tools should be contained in

src/org/flixel/plugin/photonstorm

Now read the "Getting Started Guide" in the Docs folder; it contains important information that will help you compile!

Getting Started Guide

There is a comprehensive Getting Started Guide in both Word and PDF format in the Docs branch:

https://github.com/FlixelCommunity/Flixel-Power-Tools/tree/docs

Documentation is also provided built-in to the classes. AS3 IDEs such as FlashDevelop will provide context-sensitive help for all classes and functions in the Flixel Power Tools.

Finally check out the home page at http://www.photonstorm.com/flixel-power-tools for updates.

Test Suite

Get the full Test Suite from here:

https://github.com/FlixelCommunity/Flixel-Power-Tools/tree/test-suite

The Flixel Power Tools come with a comprehensive Test Suite. Use it to visually see the tools in action, and then learn from the source code and comments within.

To run the Test Suite launch the following SWF:

Test Suite/bin/FlixelPowerTools.swf

If you don't have Flash Player installed locally then open index.html in a browser.

Contributing

I'm afraid that the Flixel Power Tools are no longer maintained by myself. I have moved on to other things.

I would strongly suggest you start using the Flixel Commmunity version of Flixel which contains updated versions of these tools.
