    Build an Efficient Flash DecalSheet SystemDecal preview
    I came up with the idea of creating what I call Flash DecalSheets from the stickers that come with model airplanes and have been using "Decals" to skin my own Flash applications ever since.

Let's take a look at how to make a simple DecalSheet system.Read More…
