Ah well, I already have it, so no need to pirate it.

I just wanted to know if there was a cheaper way of buying it, so that I know next time.

N0Nickname, discussion of how to obtain free software, aka pirating, is taboo around here.

Obtaining free software isn't always pirating. Like, what if someone bought a copy and gave it to you?

Well, you can obtain adobe flash for free by downloading the trial version, blocking some websites and entering some fake serials.

OR you could use Deep Freeze.

Anyway, I don't think this is the most extensive list of links ever. Here are some sites that were invaluable during the development of my game.

Newgrounds Audio Portal
A great site with many different tunes. Be sure to give credit before you use anything from it though.

Audacity
This is also a great tool to change the pitch and light editing of music. It can also record if you can play an instrument.

Inkscape
Inkscape is a free vector graphics drawer. It can be useful if you're looking for a more extensive drawing tool than Flash's inbult stuff, but it has a steep learning curve IMO.

Stencyl
Stencyl is a free flash game creator. It is more forgiving than Flash in many ways, so it could be a good way for a person with no experimence to start.

ASGamer and MJW
Both provide great tips and code to help with complicated things in Flash, like garbage collection and easing.

300 Mechanics
An unfortunately inactive attempt to create 300 fresh mechanics in 300 days. Stuck for ideas? Have a looksee here.

FlashDevelop
FlashDevelop is useful even if you already use Flash. Flash has a pretty bad inbuilt code editor, and FlashDevelop does it a lot faster. It puts in import statements automatically, makes your event listener functions automatically, and a lot more.

Secret Weapon
A very useful site where you can simply put your problem in the textbox and it comes up with ways to solve it. Very useful indeed.

Why did gamemaker have to raise the price to $30?
