StudioFPS – Foundation for an exciting journey

So, apparently 5 idle months since last post. Well, not really idle, Read on…

We had for the past few years engrossed ourselves in building and bettering our clients business so much that the time was ripe when we finally decided to brand ourselves new. Please accept our hearty welcome to our new website; I dearly hope that you enjoy to see the brand new face of Gateway’s Gaming website –


A few things that one should notice (who have experienced the previous version) are: The new brand, logotype, interface, and experience promises a new beginning for the company and the Game development Team. It is major shift in perspective and in what Gateway proposes to you, our most precious asset. It is a shift in the approach, from mere provision of services and technology to the provision of Solutions that has come from years of experience within an industry that promotes the highest levels of scientific and creative imagination.

From the Logo Icon, that we took inspiration from MOMA (Museum of Modern Art) that sparks a child’s imagination, to the Logo Type with bold fonts that resemble the promise of Gateway’s commitment towards relationships, reliability, and credibility with our clients, to the site that uses latest technology and playful basic colors in a manner that relates to a Game interface and incorporates the most complex navigation converted into a simple interface, to the site usbaility that never lets a user to feel lost on the site, to the ease of connecting with us through contact options that are simple and available on all pages, as if prompting the prospects to initiate a call to action and finally the UI that is a breakthrough development and incorporates the latest in HTML5 and provides the users the best experience when accessed through a Tablet.

We don’t boast of being the best or the biggest, but when you Engage Us, You Realize the Real Next IT Behind the Show.

A great new debugger tool for Flash, Flex and Air applications

I came across a really nice debugger tool to debug flash, flex and air applications at run-time. It is De MonsterDebugger This is by far the best debugging applications I have seen. It not only allows accessing all the properties and method of the objects inside the SWF, but also permits to manipulate the values and pass parameters to inbuilt object methods and custom methods.

The native flash trace can be replaced by the trace of this application and voila… you will be really surprised to see the innovative way of displaying the trace. It also features memory consumption which allows for better optimization and have a check on garbage collection.

The best of the all is it is open source air application. Once installed, it takes less than a minute to enable your flash,flex and air applications for the debugging, using this tool. Go check it out and you will not be disappointed.

Lee Brimelow has provided a fantastic introduction session on the tool and can be accessed here.
