This is an RPG tutorial - on all the basic stuff. I will definately come up with a more advanced one, but it takes time to come up with the action script.

Keywords: RPG Tutorial, Flash Tutorial

EDIT: Old. Still pretty good, 100% accurate, but old. A newer one should be expected.

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning!
Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental
hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the
staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so
they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the
machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died.
Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on
a Monday night at 12:00 a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you
and watching you bleed to death. Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and
she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if you copy and paste
this to ten comments in the next ten minutes you will have the best day of your life tomorrow.You
will either get kissed or asked out, if you break this chain u will see a little dead girl in you

i did everything, and it should be right.
but when i test movie my sprite just spins around in circles rapidly. i've added stop(); in all the frames, do i add them in the movie clips frames as well?

Very, very basic. As basic as I've ever seen. Too basic. Does not offer OOP concepts or anything I would find useful, either.

This is really useful but when I try and apply the actionscript, flash tells me theres something wrong:( It says something like:

**Error** Symbol=player, layer=Layer 1, frame=1:Line 2: Clip events are permitted only for movie clip instances
onClipEvent(enterFrame){if(!Key.isDown(Key.UP)){_root.player.gotoAndStop(1);}}

Eyup that's definitely the fix.

The error is saying that the AS you put on that frame can only be applied to a MC. You have a MC-directed ActionScript applied to a frame and the program doesn't know what to do with it.

Try putting the code for the "(!Key.isDown(Key.DOWN)" codes on each mc themselves and not the frames. Worked for me and I had this same problem.

Is Variable name the instance name?
Reply
:iconseinii:
seinii Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2010
a variable name is different from an instance name-

when you put in a variable name, it should be a text box you're selecting.
it will say Var:________ and you type in the variable name there.

dont mix var and instance names together ^^U thats a pretty bad mistake if you do that :)

when youre editing the dynamic text, look for the box that says Var. that's where you put the variable name.

a variable name is a name of a variable... and a variable is anything you set that changes throughout the game.

you click on the dynamic text box and at the bnottom of the screen there will be options, make sure it's set to "dynamic" and not static or input. just look around in there and you'll find var. make sure the layer that it's on isnt locked

It says "Now insert 4 more frames, making a total of 8. Each of them should have a movie clip in it showing the character walking..." How do you make movie clips IN a movie clip? :O I is confuzzled...

Here's what I've done:

Insert > New Symbol... named "Player" as a movie clip. I pressed "F7" 3 times and drew the first frame as someone facing North from a bird's eye view, and continued to do South, East, and West. Then I hit "F7" 4 more times to create 4 new frames. Now what? How do I make an animation inside of ONE frame?

The symbol is a movie clip, you can edit inside a movie clip symbol by double clicking the symbol.

Just above the stage it will say Scene 1, once you enter the movie clip next to scene one it will show the name of the movie clip. To exit the movie clip, click scene 1... Hope that made sense.

I'm having some problems, for instance when I go in to edit the character's movements, here's what happens.
1. I put in the action script and it says no errors.
2. Then I go to a different frame.
3. Then I go back to the same frame before and then it says that there are errors, and it says that it's not a movie clip when I already converted it to a movie clip.
Can you please help?

Staticblaze Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2008
That's really weird. If it says it's not a movie clip then maybe it isn't. Click on it and check in the properties tab to see what it is. Then go to the library and check. Sometimes you have to convert it through the library.

Beyond-The-Stars Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2008
Well I'll click on that frame and make it a movie clip, then I'll click on the next frame and in the properties place it says "frame". And converting it through the librabry just does the same thing. :ohnoes:
