Simple RPG attack 'engine'

OK... Hello and welcome, this is my tutorial to make the basics of an RPG style fight system which is based on character/enemy statistics. This is my first tutorial and I'm still adding to the code so bare with me because it may be a bit buggy. First things first, create a new movie and make two new movieclips, one named character_mc and the other enemy_mc. In my example these are both just simple squares. You're also going to need thirteen dynamic text boxs with one being around four or five lines big with multiline. These text boxes should be named the following enemyName_txt enemyHealth_txt enemyLevel_txt characterLevel_txt characterXP_txt characterMaxXP_txt characterHealth_txt characterMaxHealth_txt characterAttack_txt characterDefence_txt characterHitRate_txt characterDamage_txt The big text field should be named fightStat_txt In my example I've also done some static text fields next to these dynamic fields to help identify the statistics. The last thing you're going to need is an 'attack' button labeled attack_btn

» 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.
