I mentioned this earlier, but it was really just a footnote at the bottom of a previous post, so it may have been easily overlooked. In any case, I’ve set up a Github repo containing a collection of filters for the Starling framework I’ve written (or ported as the case may be) which may be […]

So, perusing teh internets once again, looking for something interesting to play around with, I came across this blog post of Pavan Podila (from 2008!).

You can check out the official announcement here. Using filters in Starling couldn’t be easier – you just assign a filter to the filter property […]

Obviously this could come in pretty darned handy for space games, side scrollers, etc, etc. Well, as it turns out, doing the same thing is also pretty easy in […]

It looks to me quite promising and certainly fun to play with  (although this tweet from Iain […]
