I stayed up late into the night working on my game, and in it I want certain sprites, when touched by the player, to go to a certain spot in the HUD and stay there; I apparently need to learn more about vectors and the math associated with them. So for now, they are just going to magically appear there with no seeking. Eventually I will.
The game is coming along well; I have a system using Tiled map editor to create the levels and actionscript code to put them on the screen. Pretty slick. I am using flixel, which makes it incredibly awesome and easy, and for the basic tile map import I am using code from this guy. I have enemies in the game, some things to help you out, and (the best part so far) sound effects.
