This tutorial is for you if you know basic, basic, basic actionscript. Pretty much all you have to do is copy and paste and maybe edit some names or numbers. Also you should already have a mouse cursor and a gun drawn, as this tutorial isn't for drawing, it's for a hard problem solved in an easy way. Just add this into the code for your gun:

 dx= mx-this._x;
 dy= my-this._y;
 if (dx<0){
  } else {
 if (dy<0){
   nom + (-1*dy)
 } else {

This is Guaranteed to work just fine... if you read below.

Important! This is ripped straight from my code...

So "aimer" is just the name of the mouse cursor in my document. Change it to whatever your mouse cursor is. So if your mouse cursor was named "mouse" it would be this:


And also this is true for the variables "mx" and "my." They are my mouse coordinates. Be sure to make any changes you have to to make this work. Good Luck!

» 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.
