Terrain Scrolling Code

Here are the extra variables on the main timeline that are needed for the terrain scrolling...

Comment: ----------------------------------------------
Comment:         terrain variables
Comment: ----------------------------------------------
Set Variable: "scrheight" = 450
Comment: tmov=terrain scroll speed
Set Variable: "tmov" = 3
Set Variable: "twidth" = 9
Set Variable: "theight" = 9

These are some simple variables to set up how wide our terrain is. The terrain data variables below are 9 objects wide.

Comment: NOTE: because all items are "LIVE" (they want to run down your screen) I have to tell the original items (the ones you see on the pasteboard) to "stop". When duplicated, movie clips automatically (a) become visible even if their original wasn't and (b) play.
Set Variable: "n" = 32
Loop While (n<%lt%>=128)
    Begin Tell Target (Chr(n))
    Comment: cheat: because all my movie clips have a single character as their name and are between 32 and 128 on the ASCII chart I can simply tell ALL those clips to STOP (whether they exist or not).
    End Tell Target
    Set Variable: "n" = n+1
End Loop

» 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.
