Part 3: ActionScripting

Now its time for the fun part. If you've done everything properly, or the way I've done it, to the exact frames, just copy and paste this on the Movie clip when you have got back to the scene, out of the movie clip. If your frames aren't the same, change the frame numbers to the ones on yours.

onClipEvent(enterFrame) {

if (Key.isDown(Key.UP)) {




if (Key.isDown(Key.DOWN)) {




if (Key.isDown(Key.LEFT)) {




if (Key.isDown(Key.RIGHT)) {



If you want to change the keys, go ahead, if you know what your doing. The way I have it, the Up arrow key opens the doors, the Down arrow closes them, the Left key sends the train out and the Right key is the emergency stop. If you can make the action script better or do anything in it better than I have done, I'd appreciate it if you'd send them to me with the subject Train Simulator. I was thinking of doing an airport one or something like it. It would be more difficult but it'd probably work. I'll post it in the forums if I do. Thank you for using this tutorial and I hope it worked out for you. Please rate this tutorial if you find its worth doing. Eoin Brennan.

» 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.
