Sharing EBF5 Source Code

Posted by matt-likes-swords - March 20th, 2019


Hey guys, I’m not working this month, but I still wanted to do something for my patrons, so I’m sharing the entire EBF5 source code with them.


It’s just for the purposes of personal education, and datamining (for walkthroughs etc).


The code is quite messy in many places, and the comments aren’t always accurate or useful. Timeline code from the animations is not included, so some important stuff is missing, and none of the code will compile unless you edit it to stand alone. You’re best opening the files in FlashDevelop, but any code editor should do okay.


Some files are easy to read without any programming knowledge, like the lists of item stats. While other files will require you to be familiar with Actionscript, Java, or similar languages.


So if you want to see what “real” code looks like, as opposed to ideal textbook code, toss me $1 to get it. If you're an EBF fan, you might also enjoy finding bits of unused code to see what might have been.


If people find this useful or interesting, I might release some of the animation assets in .fla format later. Not many programmers are using Flash these days, but I'm sure animators would still enjoy looking through it.

This is AWESOME. :O Definitely signing up for this, I think, will let the revelation sink in and ponder finances a bit. Really appreciate the act of source code sharing though, for both professional and fan-based purposes. Feels like the ultimate frontier somehow. The source code for how... it works. Life. And similar things. All the secrets thereof.

Really cool initiative.

Dunno if you read it but I just wrote a post about open source stuff yesterday heheh. Maybe a complete coincidence though.
But god bless ya i'll definitely drop a dollar at some point and creep through that code

I really like the idea of putting up source codes online

I wished more devs did this though. :/

@solitonmedic I remember when the guys who did Celeste put their codes online and got relentless backlash because it wasn't "done properly"

I mean it still works so ehhhhh
