Hello,I'm not sure if this was asked before, if it was than I am truly sorry,My question is:Is there anyway to program a Flash game with another OOP programming language(For example:Java)?I'm just curious because I would rather program in Java, which i am more comfortable with than ActionScript

Im pretty sure that you can, but you will need a Java compiler to put the code and execute it

Anyway, you can search over the web some ways to do flash games with Java, hope this helps you.

I think i have heard at one point that it is possible to compile an .exe file as a .swf, but other then that i don't think so.

I don't get it why does it have to be a flash game? Why not html5, you would have better luck as a beginner since it's relatively new and probably going to take over on the smart phone side of the internet.

Guessing it's because he wants to submit it to AG.

The short answer is no. You have to learn some AS3. There was a pretty cool comparison between the two languages here:
- Part 1
- Part 2
There some bindings for Java available in BlazeDS but that is more for sending information between a flash file and java.
