learn stuff like

This is a quick easy to learn command but well worth it for games and draging items you wish to connect without combining them into one mc.

1. Make two movie clips give one of them the instince name "attach"

2.Type the following in the movieclip without the instance name: (ill explain after)

 this._x = _root.attach._x;
 this._y = _root.attach._y;
this._x = _root.attach._x;

this is telling the computer that this x coordinate is equal to the coordinates of attach the movieclip you made earlier. The y is the same thing as the x just the vertical coordinates though. You can tell it to follow it but at a certain distance like:

this._x = _root.attach._x +40;

This will put it 40 pixels further to the right you can set the y coordinates like that also. if you set it to -40 it will go forty to the left same for vertical if its -40 it will go down 40.

hope that helped :)

» 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.
