Additionally, I've bitten the bullet and knuckled down on learning as much Flash as I can. I haven't begun to dabble with actionscript yet, instead favoring simpler solutions to complex problems. Instead of doing tutorials, I've been learning by trial and error - first with Penny's feed-in-telepathic-dialogue, followed by the creation of custom loading screens. Scaleform is pretty nit-picky in pretty much every aspect: image resolutions, image location, naming conventions, etc. That said, it's nice to create a UI that I know will scale properly to any window dimension (if only I could get my website to do the same thing sans-flash). Fortunately, I think from here on out it'll be minimal need for flash interfaces, unless I decide to try and make one for the key-entry puzzle inside the motel.
While not exactly enthralling, here's an example of the loading screens. Each environment has it's own:
Cheers for now!
