This tutorial discusses four useful actionscript techniques: the first will demonstrate how embedded for loops can be used to create a grid/table of duplicated MCs, the second will show you how to center anything on the stage via actionscript (in this file we'll center the grid of duplicated MCs), the third technique will exemplify the judicious use of functions within duplicated MCs, and the last technique will demonstrate how variables placed on the main timeline can be used to pass data to scripts within MCs on the stage and vice versa. Since the scripting is self working, a person can easily substitute his/her own pic-clip without knowing how the scripts work.

I am a subversive writer by profession/trade. My first book, The Real Work, is about street cons. I got interested in web design by accident. I just wanted to learn how to make a site to promote my book, but I ended up learning (D)HTML, JavaScript, and Flash 5.0 ActionScript by accident.

Featured Flash FLA
» Author: doc_chin7
» Description:

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.
