So you probably have a bunch of questions about my code. If I don't answer them, feel free to email me or look them up. First of all, about the onClipEvent handlers. What goes inside those parentheses is the specific handler : load, makes it execute only once, when the MC is first loaded; enterFrame makes it execute once every frame. Next, in case you ddin't know, x is the horizontal position and y is the vertical position. In Flash, (0,0) is the top left hand corner, so x increases from left to right and y increases from top to bottom. No negative values will be viewable on the screen. For more info on flash methods (aka paths) find an introductory tutorial to flash, I recommend the one that is built in. The code "random(num)" generates a "random" number in between 0 and num, exclusive. That is all the time I have for questions. Again, feel free to email me.

Hope you found this useful!


Also please check out my website and give me feedback! Thanks!

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.
