Before we start constructing our menu in Flash, we first need to create our buttons and button cover in a graphics package. It can be constructed just as easily within Flash, but I have chosen a 3rd party graphics package to give the graphics a bit more depth...in this case I have used Fireworks 3 (as it is a macromedia product and integrates seamlessly with Flash and Dreamweaver), but any of the good graphics packages (PaintShop Pro, PhotoShop, PhotoSuite. etc) will perform just as well.

Tip:

PaintShop Pro provides a simple 'buttonize' effect if you don't want to spend too long on the graphics.

Dimensions

Cover Size: 194 x 175 pixels

Button Size: 191 x 44 pixels

Note: These dimensions are not set in stone!

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.
