Create the Controls

Create a new empty movie clip, name it "drag" and place it somewhere on the layout. Bring up the instance properties for the clip and also, call it "drag".

Open the frame actions for the first frame of the movie and insert the following code:

startDrag ("_root.drag", true);
stop (); 

This will tell the movie to attach the drag movie clip to the cursor. This allows us to track the cursor's location.

Create a new empty movie clip, name it "control" and place it somewhere on the layout. Give this instance the name "control".

I'm a freelance web developer and designer. Although I specialize in networking (you know, Cisco routers, servers, etc), I also dabble with programming and right-brained creativity.

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.
