Step 4. Taking the ball to the MASKerade

bad pun. i know but hey this IS a geeky tutorial what else did you expect? Now to turn the symbol into a mask just input the following:

//this turns the symbol into a mask.

Now the final code should look like this.

//this hides the mouse

masker_mc.onEnterFrame = function(){
	this._x = _xmouse
	this._y = _ymouse
//this tells the symbol to follow the mouse by tracking its coordinates.

//this turns the symbol into a mask.
Note:This has only worked on Flash MX 2004 Proffesional let me know if works on your version!

» 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.
