hi.
Ive just got my copy of flash for work. Ive been using blitzmax for awhile and i was wondering what the general difference in speed is between the two?
Ive not really noticed anything, but then again i haven't worked on any projects big enough.
id love to solely use flash for games, but is it unrealistic to make say, a 2d rpg with it? something like that?
thanks.x

BlitzMax is compiled to native code, and gives you full access to OpenGL. It should be way faster than Flash.

That's not to say that Flash isn't perfectly suitable for a 2D RPG. See eg. Dofus.
