This is a basic tutorial on variables. Works good for games with money or stats. You need to know about how your software works ti do this tutorial.

Start off by adding the following action script to the first frame

money = 1000

This tells the frame that your money in the game equals 1000 dollers or whatever your currency is in the game.

Now create a dynamic text box, and in the properties section of the text box, under variable type money.

If you test your movie now, the text box should show the number 1000. If it doesn't, please try another tutorial.

This is the end of the tutorial. Like I said this is VERY VERY basic, for more advanced stuff see my tutorial "Advanced Variables"

If you have questions, please email me at, Thanks

» 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.
