That's it?

Yes, that's it. You just deciphered a hefty 72 lines of code using only your wits and willpower. That's right, you, who always said "I don't understand coding, I think I'm thickheaded". Now go into your bathroom, look at yourself in the mirror, and smile. Now look at your watch. It's 4 AM.

Unbeknownst to you, you just learned the fundamental elements of highly complex interactivity. You now know 6 of the 7 clip events, how to manipulate properties, custom functions, loading variables, and how to create un-button buttons. Next thing you'll know, you'll change your username to Flashguru2 on the boards.

» 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.
