To create a health bar, start out by adding this code to frame one: health = 100; Add another frame and put this code in: stop(); Once you have done that, create a button, place it on frame 2, and add this code to it: on (press) { _root.healthbar._xscale -= 10; } on (press) { health = health-10; } on (release) { if (health<=0) { gotoAndStop("dead"); } } After that, create a movie clip of a flat rectangle and give it the instance name "healthbar" (no quotes). Also add in a dynamic textbox with the variable name of "health" (no quotes). Create a third frame and put a Static Textbox on it that says "YOU DIED!" Give the frame the label "dead" (no quotes). When you press Ctl+Enter, you can click the button and the health bar goes down! When you get to 0, it will say you died.

» 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.
