Making a scrolling background

Included is a .fla file of the complete product

The setup

Setting up the flash is extremely simple. The minimum requirements is 2 movieclips (3 for animated walking). MOVIE CLIP ONE - The player Draw what you want to be the idle stance of your player (It could even be a small circle) and make it into a movieclip - you don't need an instance name. On the second frame of the MC, draw your character facing right (You could make this into a movieclip to have a walking animation) MOVIE CLIP TWO - The background This one is quite simple - make a picture into a movieclip (make sure it can loop horizontally) and make sure the registration point is on the far right. Give this MC the instance name of BACKGROUND In the movielip, duplicate the picture and put it on the right of the first one. THE STAGE Add a new layer for the background. Merely place the player on the higher layer and the backgorund underneath. Remember that you don't need to change anything in order for it to work (for instance, changing a variable every time you change the movie's size) as it gets all it's info on it's own.

» 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.
