Dont know if this is the right place.

If you went to my album and found the "The 'D Series Poster" then heres the thing: i suck and drawing and coding (doesnt alot of people?) and i need help. i got so many ways how the 'D Series will go (notice the words on the poster as some of them) and well i need someone to help me cause im having alot of trouble.

Before i start the first episode "Intro'd" i need someone to help me on the drawing and i need to know the codes and how to use them cause i would have big problems if i dont know how to use the codes.

So can anybody help?

coding: as in switching from frame to frame? which flash version are you using?
I might be able to give advice on coding if its AS2, I'm putting off AS3 until I've finished my next game lol I can't really help with the drawing side tho

actually button coding like when you press "Start" it starts the movie.

Its pretty much AS3.

Oh and coding to loading bars. you know to make them work properly.

Creating a button like you would in AS2

create a layer for background, another for buttons, and at the top one for scripts
add the button on the stage on the middle layer, in properties call it my_btn, then in the actions keyframe add the following:


stop();
my_btn.addEventListener(MouseEvent.MOUSE_DOWN, mouseDownHandler);
function mouseDownHandler(event:MouseEvent):void {
gotoAndStop(2);
}


So when you press down on my_btn it advances to frame 2

loader is a bit more involved.. I'll be back with that one :)

ok i got a friend who is pretty good at drawing so art part is done. and thanx nigec for the code. pretty much ill use that when i make the Play and Replay buttons. but yea the loader is more difficult then the buttons. im still trying to figure out how the heck ill be able to make sure the loader works correctly. i know how to set it and all that, just that im gonna need some help figuring out how to make it work.

Pretty much ill bring my mate over and we will get to animation and the buttons. but it still wont be releast till i figure out how the loader works cause, well, im not very good when it comes to coding due to the fact i know the codes, just that i forget them permently sometimes and will need help to get the codes back in my head. right now im not doing much right now but i am trying to figure out what the music will be like in it. and im also trying to figure out which sound effects work best. even when the logo falls down on the character since the first ep is called "intro'd"

A simpler code for the button, click on the button itself and add this actionscript to it:

on(release){
gotoAndStop(frame#)
}
(frame# is for the frame you need).

As for the loader, I don't use them myself but there are dozens of premade loaders online, just search Google for Flash Loaders and you'll find alot of sites that have them...

You can also name scenes, then tell your button to go to that specific scene.

To name a scene, press Shift + F2 (also where you can move your scenes around. Just grab & drag them up & down the list where you want them to be).

To tell that button to go to that scene:

yourbuttonname_btn.onPress = function(){

gotoandStop("nameofyourscene", #);
}

If you have created a Flash animation or just have access to one, you can insert it into PowerPoint.so don't make the Flash object the full size of the slide; you need to have some area to click to the explatnation above helped me a lot, especially the VBA code. I'm not sure how that would affect a remote. The good thing about using Flash or Photoshop is that you don't need some crazy the road is a bit more complex, but I'll try to help you make sense of the journey ahead of you.I hope I'm not too late to start my dream.
