Ok, lets get started. First open up Flash MX 2004. Make 2 circles anywhere on the white grid. Make sure there are not touching. Go to one circle (doesn't matter which one) and make it to a MC (movie clip) now go into its actionscript and enter this code: onClipEvent (load) { moveSpeed = 6; } onClipEvent (enterFrame) { if (Key.isDown (Key.RIGHT)) { this._x += moveSpeed; } else if (Key.isDown (Key.UP)) { this._y -= moveSpeed; } else if (Key.isDown (Key.DOWN)) { this._y += moveSpeed; } else if (Key.isDown (Key.LEFT)) { this._x -= moveSpeed; } } Now we got that controled. Now that circle will now move around! Now make the other circle into a MC and go to its actionscript. Enter this code to do so...: onClipEvent (enterFrame) { if ( (this)) { tellTarget ("_parent.") {gotoAndStop(2);} } } MAKE SURE THE FIRST CIRCLE HAS A INSTANCE NAME OF "circle" (without quotes) For noobs, the instance name is like a name for it when using actionscripts. its in properties>instance name>[NAME] Ok now make another frame thats blank. Now go to the first and second frame and put this actionscript in both frames: stop(); There you go! Easy huh. Have fun! now go to test movie!

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.
