Frames 2 & 3 - The Central Script

Frame 2 contains the actions that occur when the movie's status changes. We will we will go through the actionscript a block at a time:

Check for status change - All of the actions in frame 2 are dependent on a status change, so the first thing we do is update our "status" variable and check to see if it has changed since the last time the loop was run:

Set Variable: "status" = _level1:status
If (status ne status_old)
…
End If

Update status text field - If the status has changed, we update the status text field (named "effect"), then go through another gauntlet of IF tests to see what the status is now. I will discuss each of these test individually.

Set Variable: "effect" = status

The flash's horizontal road drive was done in CS4 and was upgraded to CS6. The car responds to right/ left key and flash will auto-generate the movement of roads from left-right or right-left based on random number. Have fun driving in this virtual environment and avoid other cars... :) If you are creative, a road driving game can be created from it.
