ActionScript 2.0 :: Flash8 Flipping Horizontally When Reaching A Point?

Apr 2, 2009

My idea is for a movieclip to flip horizontally when reaching an _x point, which is 225 (it should be half the stage). Now, I know about _root.movie_clip._xscale, and I've tried it, but it didn't work. Here's my code:



And I'll upload the .fla for you, so you can see what the problem is.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Flipping The Clip Horizontally Without Changing The Position?

Jul 19, 2010

I've loaded a clip in my main swf and I want to flip it by using scaleX*=-1the problem is that in my clip, the animation is at the center of the stage so when I load it and flip it using scaleX instead of staying at the same place it flips by using the top left corner of the clip as a pivot instead of the center of the animation itselfI could either solve this problem by placing the center of my animation on the point (0,0) in the clip or flip then rearrange the clip's x position inside my main swf...but is there a more effective method?

Flash8 :: Animations Will Inexplicably Stop At Certain Point In Published SWF

May 13, 2009

After I publish my entire project to SWF it plays as it should without a hitch, but just about the midway point of the cartoon the animations simply freeze on me. What's even more confusing is that the audio of the movie, all set to play as Stream, do NOT stop and continue playing in the proper order -- and that includes audio from subsequent scenes. So basically once my cartoon reaches X I can hear my movie playing normally but everything else is frozen.

-I'm working in Flash8 and using FlashPlayer9

-There are no actionscript commands in the scene where the animations stop. The only actionscript commands in the entire project are a Preloader/Start button at the beginning and a Stop command at the very end.

-When I publish only the troublesome scene it plays fine.

-This project is actually a very long movie, clocking in at just under 24 minutes. There are a total of 42 scenes in it and all principle animations take place directly on stage, not broken down into graphic numbers or movie clips.

ActionScript 2.0 :: [Flash8] Move Back To The Origin Point

Oct 14, 2008

I tried to create simple animation from this Kirupa's tutorial My aim is to make a circle run from left to right and when it is almost to the edge it will move back to the origin point and it will loop only 3 times. So I came up with totally baby script like this:


But the MC is not move back to the original place. Sorry for not even finish the script for stop looping. Only tweak on play loop it make me very confused. My knowledge is quite in entry level but I eager to learn. Could you let me know what is wrong with the script?

ActionScript 2.0 :: Flash8 - Pause Game As Start Point To Terminate Code

Oct 17, 2009

I'm designing a platformer game, in which the code is all held within the character MC. I want to pause the game using something like 'delete this.onEnterFrame' as a start point to terminate code. The code layout within the character is like so:

onClipEvent (enterFrame) {
this.onEnterFrame = function(){ //within clip event
if(btnon == 1){ // when button pressed(on stage)) global value of 1 is true
delete this.onEnterFrame;

Due to the fact its within a clip event structure, it doesn't pause it, instead it slows everything down. Would I have to construct all my code in a frame layer or can I still use an MC to terminate this?

Stop Automatically After Reaching The Last Frame?

Jun 4, 2011

I found this snow script on the web that I would like to use but I don't know how to turn it off.

It starts working when I load the script into frame 1. Then I would like for it to run 150 to 200 or so frames and then I would like for it to stop without using any type of button. I would like for it to just stop automatically after reaching the last frame. A simple stop(); in the last frame doesn't work.

// max number of snow flakes on screen at once
var nMaxFlakes = 100;
// fastest speed that the snow flakes fall

is there a way to reach the stage (the main time line) from ANYWHERE.In AS2 it was _root...The aim is : I want to add on stage an MC from within a class. As expected, addChild(mc) doesn't work, it adds the child to my class, not to the stage. So : is there any stage.addChild(mc) or MainTimeLine.addChild(mc) or anything like this ?The other way is to add the class on stage addChild(MyClassName).

ActionScript 1/2 :: GotoAndPlay Playing Two Frames When Reaching A Certain Frame?

Jan 29, 2011

Basically I have a MC called 'plane3.' Inside that MC is another MC called 'plane2.' Inside 'plane2' is an animation on frame 5.(inside the MC 'plane3' the MC 'plane2' is on a classic tween going side-to-side from frame 1 to 99, once it gets to frame 99 the code gotoAndPlay(1); makes it go on loop back to the beginning)My question is how would I go about: when you click 'plane3' it lets the tween continue playing until frame 10, then on frame 10, it gotoAndPlay (100); in the same MC and ALSO plays frame 5 from inside 'plane2'

ActionScript 2.0 :: Continue Statement - New SWF Is Not Loaded Into Movieclip After Reaching The End

Dec 18, 2005


What I'm trying to do is: When this button is pressed, whatever is in the current news_Clip movieclip goes to frame 71 and plays till it reaches the end of the outro animation which is frame 101. When it reaches frame 101, I want to load a new swf into news_Clip. Using the above code, the contents of news_Clip does its outro animation but the new SWF is not loaded into it after reaching the end. I've been screwing around with this for the past 7 hours and can't figure out what I'm not doing or doing wrong.

Flash - Flex 3: Preventing Keyboard Events From Reaching A Sprite?

Feb 9, 2012

I'm working on a Flex 3 app, implemented in Actionscript 3 and MXML, that includes an embedded video player, which is essentially a black box--I load it as a SWF from another site on demand, and I don't have access to its source code. It does, however, inherit from Sprite.The problem is that, when focus is on the Flash app, the video player is somehow receiving and processing keyboard events, even when the player itself isn't in focus.So when users are typing text elsewhere in the GUI, if they hit the space bar, the video pauses.

I've tried intercepting key events in the Sprite's parent, and setting tabEnabled = false, tabChildren = false, and buttonMode = false on the Sprite, but nothing seems to work. It's as if the Sprite is getting keystrokes through an alternate Event I can prevent the player from receiving keyboard events or input events entirely? It's fine with me if no input events reach the player, since I've implemented my own,separate video controls.

IDE :: Flipping Using Motion Tween?

Feb 2, 2009

I created some text, converted into a movie clip and I have three keyframes - 1,5, 1 the text is as it is, at 5 i flip it horizontally, using the transform tool [q key] and at 15 i flip it horizontally it again, so it's normal again And I've put motion tween between both the places. Now when I preview the swf, from 1 to 5 the text animates as it is supposed to clockwise but from 5 to 15 it rotates clockwise

So it covers 1/2 revolution and then traces the same half back to become normal again.What must I do in order to make it swivel in clockwise sense only ?
