ouksal, wow. I didn't realize that I had to spoon feed people actual code and files around here.
If you'd like to steal the particle effects that I'm talking about, you can always download and unpackage Video Poker Tour from the iOS store, which I was lead engineer on and contain the particle effects built in the exact manner I described above.
The PEX files and pngs are there for the taking. I can't condone that you actually do that because it's neither my property nor yours. Which is why you don't see me sharing a bunch of code or files that were made on my company's clock.
If you'd like more code, please see my github. I contributed to the Starling Framework with an extension, created the native extension for connecting AIR to Oculus Rift, and recently a native extension for connecting MIDI sources to AIR as well. All opensource.
If you think I'm full of shit, that's up to you to decide. I just hope you are taking all of my contributions to the AIR community into consideration before calling me out like you did.
