Ok, let's take this step by step...

_root.pos = sharedobject.getLocal("COOKIE NAME");

This means that you have just created "pos", which is the cookie file. For "COOKIE NAME", name it whatever you want and appropriate for the type of save for easy remembering. ie: "player 1 save" or something like that. = _root.guy._x; = _root.guy._y; = _root.NAME;

This is basically what it's saving. it records the MC "guy"'s _x and _y positions into pos' data. Of course, you dont have to name them guyx and guyy, you can name them anything, but dont change _root.guy._x and _y, because those are the actual targets. NAME is the instance name for anything like a dynamic text box for saving score or anything like that.

Now for the load button, create one and put this in the actionscript panel:

on (release) {
_root.pos = sharedobject.getLocal("COOKIE NAME");
setProperty(_root.guy, _x,;
setProperty(_root.guy, _y,;
_root.NAME =;

This sets the properties for the things saved that are on the stage. For those that aren't, you must use the attachMovieClip() function and then set it's properties.

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.
