3. Making the shooting cursor:
ok, first, draw you gun cursor. convert the cursor to a movie-clip. Go into the movie-clip, and on the first frame put this action in:


make a new keyframe. in the new keyframe, make the cursor different, because this frame plays when you click. get out of the cursor's properties, and put these actions in the cursor:

   onClipEvent (load) {
 startDrag("", true);

Now make a big square, that fills the entire stage, and convert it to a button. in the button, dont have anything in the keyframes except for the hit (which is the square). Get out of that buttons properties, and put these actions in the square:

   on (release) {

Make this big stage button on the layer under the enemy.

» Description:

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.
