Okay, first, you sould know variables, if actions,
instance names, buttons, and goto actions.
First, on frame 1, draw at least 3 characters.
Make each characters a button. Add this action to the first button.
on (release) {
	character = 1;

Now this one for the second button:
on (release) {
	character = 2;

Now this one for the third button:
on (release) {
	character = 3;

Now, put a stop(); action on frame 1 and add
a keyframe on frame 2.
Now draw your characters again on 1 movieclip
(1st character on 1st frame, etc.)
now put a stop(); action on all frames of this
movie clip and on the main timeline.
Put this code on the Movie Clip on Frame 2:
onClipEvent (enterFrame) {
	if (_root.character == 1) {
	} else if (_root.character == 2) {
	} else if (_root.character == 3) {
Okay! we are now DONE!!!

    I noticed that this code is in AS2 format. I am using AS3, and need help coding a CS screen for it... I have tried many different things to do this(I am taking a class for this and need it for an assignment), and have had no luck. Also, I would need it to go to the gameplay screen afterwards.

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
