HitTest With Irregular Shapes
HitTest is very important for creating games. In Flash, there are two types of HitTest. I will be concentrating on the one that takes three parameters: myMovieClip.hitTest(x, y, shapeFlag)
An example ...
Suppose you are creating a space shooter and you want your bullets to hit the exact spot on your enemy and not only the Bounding Box. Here is what you do:
1. Create the bullet, it could be a small rectangle facing upward. Convert it to a MovieClip and name it weapon.
2. Create an irregular shape. It could be anything - maybe two circles combined together.
3. Convert it into a movieclip and name it target.
