The Movie

Basicly we will need to create three layers: 1. ACTIONS 2. Eyes 3. Face (background)
Note that the file "Looking.fla" already has these layers and images set up.
Firstly select the left eye and give it an instance name of “eye”, then select the right eye and call it “eye2”. We are about to create a script that will tell the eyes to rotate to look at the mouse. Obviously this script needs to be recalculated all the time to catch every mouse movement so the eye is always looking in the correct direction. For this reason, in the second frame of the actions layer, create a keyframe and insert this action:
gotoAndPlay (1);
This will cause the movie to play over and over again, causing the actions in frame one to be executed over and over again. Now on to the tricky stuff...

Featured Flash FLA
» Author: doc_chin7
» 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.
