Hello again. Today we will be learning 'bout
Random variables!
You may be asking, "lol wtf is a randm var????/?"
It is a variable that chooses a random number to display..
Uhmm.. Yeah..

To start, make a dynamic text box. In the Var box, put random1.
Now on the first frame add this code:

_root.random1 = random(5);

That means the random1 variable(dynamic textbox) will be a number from 0-4 (Will never choose 5).
Add another frame.
Test your movie. The variable should change every millsecond, depending on your fps.

You can use this to make stuff like RPGs (random damge),
card games (random cards), or stuff like A.I. with a few tinkering here and there.

Well that's 'bout it! Happy game making.

» 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.
