Alright, thanks for tuning in. Let's get started!

I will be using Flash 8 for this, but you can use MX and MX 2004 if you want.

First, create a text box by clicking on the 'A' or by pressing [T].

Then change the type (1) to 'Input Text'. Change the variable (2) to User.

Next create another text box, and change it's type to 'Dynamic Text' in it's variable slot, put in User as well.

To make the boxes show up, you can click the 'Show Border around Text' button.(3)
Now test the movie ([ctrl]+[enter] or {Control} > {Test Movie}).
If you type in the input text box, it will show up in the dynamic test box. So if you have a lose screen or info screen, you just put a dynamic text box there and make its variable User (or anything you want, as long as you use the same variable you gave to the input text box) then it will show the person's name or User name!

Now I'll show you how to make a Password/Username System

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.
