Setting up your programming environment
These following information will walk you through the steps of setting up your Whirled development environment, and building your ActionScript code into a working Whirled game.
If you are working in Adobe Flash CS3, please follow our tutorial for CS3.
If you are working in AS3 directly, please follow these steps to set up your environment. This is part of the Setting up your programming environment tutorial.
You will need to follow these steps first:
- Set up Java and Ant
- Set up the Flex SDK and the debug Flash player
- Download and test the Whirled SDK
Now you are ready to build games in Whirled. We suggest that you work through our Hello Whirled example as your first game.
