    Default How to make a Game?

    I need some help, I have an assignement at school (i go on a media and communication line in Norway) and I am supposed to make a room ascape game in flash, but i need help. I have never done something like this before.
    I use Macromedia Flash 5.
    In order to make a game, I need to learn how to do certain things that none of my teachers know how to do.
    If anyone could answer some questions about flash i would be very pleased.

    Q1: How do I make things fall together?
    Q2: How can I script an object to move with the arrow?
    Q3: How do i make the game remember what have been done?
    Q4: How do I make a "bar" with items?

    I do not remember more questions at the moment but i hope somebody can help me. (there will come more questions)

    If anyone at all can help me by answering my questions it would be really really nice (my teachers know nothing)

    How much you know your Flash. Do you know some actionscript?
    If you don't know, then i suggest You to learn some actionscript.

    Actionscript tutorials

    Anyway here's some answers to your quetions:

    A1: Sry, but dont know what you are exactly meaning.
    A2: Here's a tutorial how to make an arrow(aka cursor) Tutorial here
    A3: Here's a little tutorial, it's too small however Link
    And i suggest you to read more basic tutorials from actionscript.org

    And if you you now learn something. Then i just say, that i use "_level0."'s and "enterFrame"'s with my movieclips.

    A4: To make a bar with items, you again have to learn "enterFrame" and "_level0" stuff. Also you need to know "dragging".

    Here's the code, i use to drag items:

    PHP Code:
    on (release) {
            
    thisX getProperty(this_x);
            
    thisY getProperty(this_y);
            
    startDrag(thistrue);
    }
    on (pressreleaseOutside) {
        
        if (
    _root.tv.hitTest(this))
        {
            
    //do something
            
    setProperty(this_xthisX);
            
    setProperty(this_ythisY);
            
    stopDrag();
        }
        else
        {
        
    setProperty(this_xthisX);
        
    setProperty(this_ythisY);
        
    stopDrag();
        }

    P.S after "//" are comments.


    Oh, and sry about the typos. And it's hard to explain if i don't know what you already know. I hope this at least gives you a some kind of view

    Thank you very much, this have been more helpful than my teachers...
    We acctually have one teacher that is supposed to learn us flash, but he only know the basics, (like how to make something move or how to make a button) he does not even know how to use a guide...

    but thank you very much...

    if anyone have more tips, please send them....

    I know how to make one, but i have not did it yet and i think there's no site with particular tutorial, couse it's just too general/basic to make a tutorial about.

    If you want to make on online game, you need Flash.

    For downloadable games there are a couple of different game engines to work with.

    You mean without the need for YOU to download a software for that or for your players?

    You need to have a software for making games, unless it is a html riddle game.
