The Steps

1. Create an input text box (do this by creating a regular textbox, but in properties, change the drop-down menu in the top-left to read "Input Text"). 2. In propeties, type code where it says "Var" (near the bottom-right). 3. Make a "Submit" or "OK" button (you can create a rectangle, select it, press F8 and select "Button"). 4. Give the button you just made the following actionscript: on (release) { if (_root.code == "CodeForLevel1") { gotoAndStop(FrameForLevel1) } if (_root.code == "CodeForLevel2") { gotoAndStop(WHATEVER FRAME) } if (_root.code == "CodeForLevel3") { gotoAndStop(WHATEVER FRAME) } } 5. Now look at the code and you are going to have to make some changes. Replace the CodeForLevel1 with whatever you want the code for Level 1 to be, the CodeForLevel2 with whatever you want the code for Level 2 to be, and so on. Then replace the FrameForLevel1 with whatever frame level 1 is on, and so on. Note that you can also add more codes for more levels by just copying this: if (_root.code == "") { gotoAndStop() } and pasting it right under the last one, with of course filling the blanks in.
Note: Remember to keep the quotation marks ("s). Just change the phrase/word inside them.
6. TEST IT! :) Download the .fla file or e-mail me for any problems. You can check the next page if you want to know how the actionscript actually works.

» 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.
