(unfamiliar with flash mind you lol)
I would like to start working on publishing and posting my own flash games, but the only program I know of is adobe's which costs money to be able to use it.
I don't need bells/whistles, honestly I can learn to hand-write the code myself without breaking a sweat. I only need a program to compile("publish"...?) to generate the finished result that can be posted online or even submitted to a gaming website.
A design environment isn't important, such as visual c++ for example. I honestly only need notepad and the borland tools for that (well, that along with a much better knowledge of threads/processes and windows programming lol)
Just a simple compiler (if that's the term for a flash "maker") is all I really need, and search engines have been less than helpful. Anyone who could point me in the right direction, your help would be greatly appreciated.
