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: 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.
