Hit Testing

Create two movieclips, and do whatever you want with them. Just so I can show you how they work in hit test coding, I will call them mc1 and mc2. In mc1, type the following:
onClipEvent (enterFrame) {
	if (this.hitTest(_root.mc2)) {
Right now it will only detect the contact, but nothing will happen. If you want it to go to frame 2 of mc1 after contact, give frame 2 of the mc a frame label, for instance, Action. (to give frame labels, just select the frame and in the properties type in frame label Action) Then type this in after the last _root.:
Now, put everything you've learned into a game, or at least be happy with whatever actionscript you copied and then closed this tutorial.

» 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.
