I assume it’s very curious, but I was wondering which is the hoghest sale rate on FD, or some examples.Just to locate myself.
I’ve seen $40 for a single file and $50 for a bundle of files If you’re talking about commission it’s 70%.
Error #1065: Variable root is not defined.
Not quite sure about this particular error. It’s possible that root is not defined because the display object hasn’t been added to the stage yet. Try adding an “ADDED_TO_STAGE” event listener, and then write all your stage stuff (including root) inside the event’s function.
Here’s an example:
