Sorry it took so long...
I won't try and excuse myself... as any excuses would involve playing gta3 and watching matrial arts films (House of flying daggers is a must see by the way! espes if you liked hero!)

anyhoo, here's part2, if you have Q's let me know. if you make any games let me know, I'm keen to see!

:cry: i'm such an idiot at actionscript :cry: all i can do is draw ( and even those aren't that good ) :writersblock:

(btw i know that's the writer's block symbol but it looked good for what i just said)

hey, as much as i'd like to say this is a good tutorial, i feel that i can't.

It's well designed visually but i think you have over complicated some very simple things like the movement of the character (in the 1st tutorial)

for example:
you say "if (Key.getCode() == 37){"
whereas an easier way do this would be "if(Key.isDown(Key.LEFT)){"

also another little thing you do is to go "_root.mcBALL._x = _root.mcBALL._x - 5;" when, you can in fact simply go "_root.mcBALL._x -= 5;"
and instead of copying your code in two frames of a timer why don't you just attach it to the actual timer and have it in a onClipEvent(enterFrame) handler, this has the same effect.

I'm unsure of why you used variables for the 8 point movement. In my game im just using stuff like

if (Key.isDown(Key.UP) && Key.isDown(Key.RIGHT)) {
UP_RIGHT = true;
} else {
UP_RIGHT = false;

I'm in the process of making my own flash game, Bob's Adventure with ~The-Shadow-Master (i do all the scripting) and also a 3d game i was inspired to do after seeing your old website. - i've figured out a way to be able to walk around objects as if they were 3d instead of using your effect of the roof being in a layer above the character and the rest of the house below.

one thing i did gain from your tutorial was the idea of taking the x and y values before and after the movement for use in collision detection, i tend to use movement in two opposite directions to cancel out movement.

Anyway hope i've been of some help and not an annoyance... maybe i should do a tutorial.

I'm really glad I helped you out some way, also, the reason I store variables for getting keypresses is so that the user can change the controls if they like at runtime, also all of the -= stuff is really usefull if you are an experianced coder trying to save time and write cleaner code, but if you want to see what is actually going on, I think my way shows it in a way which is easier to understand.

but that is ye olde argument, I find the -= versus = blah-blah all the time in coding forums, it usually turns out as an agree to disagree.

but when I was taught to code, -= wasn't the way I was tought until I had got the hang of how everything works, so that's how I teach... although the whole 'timer' thing I have done is not the way I do things now, I use the onClipEvent(enterFrame) instead, although the timer method saves filesize as the code is stored in a symbol, and not on each movie clip that may use it. anyhoo... I can't think of anything else to say... :D

^0^ Great stuff! If I had flash, I bet it would make sense too ^0^
dylanjones Featured By Owner May 19, 2005
i love it:D could you make a tutorial on how you made that girl with gun spin around?
me really want to know:D
GuyFlash Featured By Owner May 20, 2005
I want to say yes, but I am doing lots of stuff now, but I did it mostly by looking up how flash can use trigonometry to get angles.

If I had flash, that would be damn handy......... hang on.. a have a flash CD right over there, all I have to do is pick it up and instal it... screw that, I have toons to watch XD
GuyFlash Featured By Owner May 19, 2005
