Introduction

This tutorial shows you how to set up a form based e-mail system from within your Flash movie.  It describes how to set up the basic form components in the Flash movie as well as giving you the basic knowledge of how to set up either a PHP, Perl, or ASP script to handle the e-mail and have it sent to an address that you specify.  There are a ton of possible situations that you can use this type of application.   For example say you are offering products or services on your company's site - this system can be set up to enable you to send a customized e-mail specifically about the product or service in question, you can have it sent to multiple e-mail address's, or you can specify which product or service should be sent to which person in your company.  The possibilities are endless.  In order to provide you with the knowledge necessary to customize this application for all your needs, and to avoid using scripts that are set up by your server (aka formmail.pl etc) which add a ton of useless garbage to your data and make it hard to customize (and are just darn right confusing), this tutorial will walk you through all the basic's of writing the scripts yourself.  In order to keep everything as simple as possible and to make sure that you have a thorough understanding of the scripts - some security measures were left out.  It's up to you to provide these if you think it is necessary.  (I'll try to go over them as best as possible however).  This tutorial is intended for the advanced actionscript programmer and the novice PHP, Perl, or ASP programmer.

» 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.
