Create a new movie clip (Ctrl+F8) and call it 'nav'. This will be used as the menu itself. In the center of it, design your menu, keeping in mind that the menu will be rotating, so make it circular.

Place as many buttons as you wish into the menu but leave the actions tab blank, we will add things to it later.

Go back to the main stage of the movie, go to the properties of your menu and give it the instance name nav.

Move your menu so that it is in the center of the stage vertically and on the right, horizontally.


In the main stage, create a new movie clip (Ctrl+F8) and call it 'drag'. Leave it blank and go back to the main stage.

Go to the properties of 'drag' and give it the instance name drag.

In the actions tag of the main stage, in frame 1, add the following:

Start Drag ("drag", lockcenter)

This will be used later to determine where the mouse is, to change the size and rotation of the menu.

» 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.
