Yes; it allows you to easily create boxes and circles of custom sizes (I do this in Telepath Tactics for the pop-up info boxes when you mouse over units and objects, since the boxes change size depending on circumstances). Doing this also reduces the size of your game, since it's not storing any vector images--everything is generated on the fly from code.
Sorry for intruding. :)
Vector graphics have advantages when you want to zoom in some areas. Perhaps the disadvantage they have is that it's harder to create a picture (at least I feel like it's harder). Scalable Vector Graphics is an open standard that allows creation by and interaction with scripts (ECMAScript, the specification of JavaScript and ActionScript 3).
If you want some eye candy, there are some amazing examples of vector art.

Duly noted. Thanks, both of you!

P.S. And dang, those are some awesome vector drawings.

Hey, would you mind explaining how one makes programmer's graphics and their advantage over just drawing the graphics in flash?

Programmer graphics is just an expression for bad placeholder art quickly thrown together by a programmer in order to test out code. You can very easily make programmer art by drawing in Flash.

As for the advantages of using placeholder art: well, quite simply, it gives you something to look at so you can make sure your engine actually works before you go to the trouble of making it pretty.

But I've heard that you can draw vector graphics by using code in Flash. Is there an advantage to doing that?

Do Shadowlings need chairs? I noticed Malis is placed above a cushion. If not, does Nelis have a throne?

What headwear is the TRPG2 Hero wearing, exactly? Is it a winter cap of some sort? And is he/she wearing a scarf, or is that just his/her cape?

I wish for a better video card.
