Review

What you have basically done is tell flash:

  • You want the MC called maincursor that is on the root level of your movie to be dragged by the mouse.
    (you used to write the Flash 4 AS code as /maincursor - now it's _root.maincursor)
  • You want the MC to be locked to the center of your mouse.

That's all you need to do to have replaced the mouse with a custom pointer!

But we're not satisfied with that are we?

If not, then I'll be soon publishing a tutorial on making a custom cursor that responds to your movement.

Also, don't forget to vote nicely if you found this tutorial helpful! It's much appreciated!

» 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.
