STEP 4 - The Actionscript

Ok. here's where it gets slightly more complicated. Click the cursor movie clip on the stage and drag it to the center. Once it is selected, press the "F9" key on your keyboard to bring up it's actions panel. Type into it the following:

onClipEvent (load) {
	startDrag(this, true);
This script tells the cursor movie clip to move along with your mouse.
Now select the first one of your buttons and press "F9" again to bring up it's actions panel. Type in the following:
on (press) {
This script tells the cursor movie clip to go to frame two when ever the button is clicked.
Repeat this for all the buttons but change the frame number for each one, for example: on the second button you would put:
on (press) {
Notice how it says gotoAndPlay(3); instead of 2 like the first one. Repeat this for all the buttons with the third button being gotoAndPlay(4); and the fourth being gotoAndPlay(5);

I've been a flash developer for about 2-3 years now, i never realised how complicated it would be :S I prefer making games to animations, but I'll try anything once :)

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.
