Okay, open up Macromedia Flash MX. Then, draw a cursor.Then make mc (movie clip, first choose your own draw cursor and then right click and convert to symbol and then "movie clip" and then press OK)Okay, now instance name it "cursor". (How to do that = choose your cursor and then - properties - and then write to the "instance name" bar, cursor) Okay, now you have a mc with instancce name "cursor". Or you SHOULD have it....anyway, next, click the cursor FRAME once. Then open up ACTIONS panel. Then, put this code into it: Mouse.hide(); startDrag("cursor", true); That´s it! Easy, isn´t it? Okay, now, if you don´t know anything about scriptin, let´s look at the code! Mouse.hide(); = it means that, you can´t see the mouse.I don´t mean now your custom cursor. startDrag("cursor", true); startDrag action means: that cursor, you created, is now starting dragging the cursor. Then, "true" means that, the "lockcenter" is true. Don´t set there "false"`cose the whole code won´t work then. Okay, I hope, your custom cursor would work now. You can also set in properties panel the frame rate: 12 to 60. Now, click Control - Test movie.....YOUR JUST CREATED CURSOR, THAT WILL DRAG THE MOUSE!!!

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.
