Hi all, I'm a total javascript newbie and I was just wondering what kind of skills would be required to take full advantage of Impact.

willingness to learn, follow the documentation and ask us whenever you hit a roadblock.

in the longer term, some object oriented theory to help design a more 'organized' game.

also try to understand the example code from Dominic. Try to build around it, modify its properties, etc.

Awesome. Thanks for the reply.

I'm experienced at C, Objective-C, and very familiar with a few others. Javascript was new for me but seemed so familiar that I thought it would be a no-brainer. So I bought Impact 2 weeks ago. It's been fun but I soon hit a few conceptual road blocks. Dominic's examples are very useful, and couple that with a very friendly and helpful forum and community and all problems solved.

For safety's sake I picked up No Starch Press' Eloquent Javascript. It's well-written hence a fast read. Recommended for clarifying some areas.

I started learning javascript from absolute scratch in september of 2011. I have two games done now with impact.

dominic's absolutely fantastic documentation has done wonders for my learning javascript and Impactjs.
