First you need to make a movieclip that points to the right. Why to the right you might ask, well in Flash the degrees start on the right (0 degree) and ends right (360 degree). Select the movieclip and give it an instance name of arrow (you dont HAVE to make thats what im going to name it so it will be easier to follow this tutorial). After that go to the frames actionscript panel. Here is the full script

onEnterFrame = function () { var dy = _ymouse-arrow._y; var dx = _xmouse-arrow._x; var radians = Math.atan2(dy, dx); arrow._rotation = radians*180/Math.PI; };

» 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.
