I love Dumb & Dumber movie, but what I’m about to write has nothing to do with the movie. But the title express my frustration that I’m feeling right now.

Well, it started with my (great) idea to make a Flash Game few days ago. I wanted to make a Naruto game (I’m quite a big fan of anime & manga). So, I started to collect some pictures, corp them using Photoshop and such. Then I started to make a simple “prototype” game on Flash, and I got stuck.

I know I can could make Flash. I took a class on that a year ago. I learned Flash 8 and ActionScript 2.0; in that class, I successfully made several games. Even for my final project, the teacher thought my plan was too ambitious, but I nailed it. So, I was pretty confident that I could make my Naruto game idea came true…

When I started to write the code, my mind didn’t go totally blank I could scrap my memory and remember some basic functions. But I got a syntax error. So I fetched my “textbook” (it’s actually a Reader writen by my professor) and look for the function lists. I fixed things, but I still got syntax error!

Frustrated, I opened my old projects, and compare to see what I did wrong. Nothing seemed wrong; I converted the symbol into movie clip, I used the correct function and such, but I still couldn’t figure out and get rid off the error.

So, I decided to give it up. I think all my knowlegde about Flash have leaked out off my brain during the past year. When I looked at my projects, I thought how on earth did I make this? I know that if you don’t use what you learn, you’ll forget and lose it eventually; but it doesn’t stop me from feeling that I’m getting dumber each second….

I wonder if anyone out there have felt the same way…
