Activate Nav Layer:

  1. Create a new layer below the previous and name it "Activate Nav".
  2. In Frame 1 place an instance of the symbol "Dot" and center it with the center point option enabled in the Info panel. You should have frames extending out to Frame 25.
  3. Insert Keyframes at Frames 3, 17 and 25 (Use F6). Then insert Blank Keyframes at Frames 15 and 26 (Use F7).
  4. Select the Keyframe in Frame 1. Modify the instance properties (Cmd+i, Mac; Ctrl+i, PC) and make this instances' behavior definition as a "Button" with Tracking Options set to "Track as Button"
  5. With the instance still selected open the Actions window and assign the following to the instance. (Hint: check out "on MouseEvent" under "Basic Actions")
    on (rollOver) {
    	gotoAndPlay ("Activate Nav");

So far your timeline should look like this:

Featured Flash FLA

» 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.
