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:

onClipEvent(enterFrame){
 this._x=_root.aimer._x/2+350
 this._y=_root.aimer._y/5+300
 dx= mx-this._x;
 dy= my-this._y;
 if (dx<0){
   nom=-1*dx
  } else {
   nom=dx
 }
 if (dy<0){
   nom + (-1*dy)
 } else {
   nom+dy
 }
  dir=90*(dy/nom)+45
 this._rotation=dir;
}

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:

 this._x=_root.mouse._x/2+350
 this._y=_root.mouse._y/5+300

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:

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.
