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:

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?

ActionScript 3.0 :: MovieClip Flashing Between Flipping Right And Left

Jan 10, 2010

I got this pretty much working, but there is a bug, when the bird is going right the trace statement says right but I get the movieclip flashing between flipping right and flipping left. So I assume its a problem with that bit of the code. Also this function is running constantly so I don't know if that might be an issue:

public function objDirection() {
trace('old' + oldX);
trace('charx' + char.x);
if (char.x>oldX) {
trace("Bird right");

ActionScript 3.0 :: Scrolling MovieClip With Mouse Movement - Horizontally

Nov 13, 2008

I am trying to make a movie clip that contains different buttons. Not all the buttons will be visible on the stage always, so I want that when the user moves the mouse arrow left, the movieclip containing the buttons updates and move along with it to the right...and vise versa. The issue I am having is that my pieces update only after I am done moving the mouse. So the movie clip is not moving along with the pointer. Attached is the code. Here is a sample of what I am trying to accomplish: [URL]

ActionScript 2.0 :: Flip A MovieClip Horizontally When The Mouse Moves Over A Certain X-coordinate?

Jan 27, 2009

Is there a code that will flip a MovieClip horizontally (e.g mirror image) when the mouse moves over a certain x-coordinate.For example, we'll say the movieclip is called "man" .When the mouse is on the left side of the man, the man faces right. However when the mouse is on the right side of the man, he now faces left. Of more simply, he 'flips over' when the mouse changes sides.Is there an actionscript code to tell the movieclip to do this or do i have to manyally free transform the movieclip?

I have a problem with the way Flash handles a script I am making. What I currently have is 10 movieclips which I want to play after each other. Right now, I am using a for loop to start each clip. Naturally this will make it so that each clip starts almost immediately after the one before it. make a script that will make Flash wait with playing a clip until the one before it is done?

ActionScript 3.0 :: Making Using Multiple Movie Clips?

Apr 1, 2011

I'm working on a project where in I've found it necessary to mask a background object with MULTIPLE Sprites. I've tried doing this two ways: making one "parent" sprite to which all of the other masks are childed; adding them as individual masks.

The composite strategy just sort of gave up, Flash doesn't seem to like having to search through it's render tree to do these things and the result was no visible mask or masking (just the full background image). The latter strategy failed for obvious reasons: saying Sprite.mask = so-and-so implies that setting it again will overwrite the last mask.

Is there any way to use the composite strategy? Or is there a way I can copy over all of my sprites and draw them directly into one new sprite on every frame?

Flash - Making Movie Clips In CS3 For Use Within FlashDevelop

May 24, 2011

I'm making a game in actionscript using the FlashDevelop tool and the FlashPunk game engine. I have a designer making movie clips for me to put into this game using Flash CS3.

My problem is that when I add these movie clips into my game they are playing much quicker than they should. Is there a specific frame rate clips need to be made in within CS3 or any other export options set to enable them to play at the correct speed or is this something that I need to deal with in my code.


Another problem that I'm having is that the command movieClip.stop() doesn't work. Is there anything special that needs doing while exporting or the programming side?


Here is how I'm loading in my swfs:

public var movieClip:MovieClip = new MovieClip();
private var myLoader:Loader;
public function MyMovieClip(location:String)
