ActionScript 3.0 :: Flash - Generate An Isometric Grid Via Code Using Kirupa's Tutorial

Apr 8, 2011

I'm trying to generate an isometric grid via code using kirupa's tutorial but it's not quite working correctly as I'm trying to convert it. I am trying to generate a 5 x 5 grid with a unique coordinate to each square, but I can only get a row to form with the coordinates showing x = 5 and y = 5 for each square of the single row. There is also an unclickable square in the corner. Here is my code:

ActionScript 3 :: Isometric Grid Movement For Object In Game

Mar 4, 2011

I am currently creating a game similar to cafe world, farmville etc (social game). Would like to know how could I make an object move in an isometric direction when my mouse move. For example, when I want to build a house, I click on the house build button, and when my mouse move, I want my house object (stored in the library) to be move together with my mouse in an isometric direction. To give you all a better impression of the solution i am looking for, click on this link for a sketch: [URL]. So I want something like only when my mouse move 20 units more than the original mouse position, then my house item should move to the next grid.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Isometric Grid Movement On Mouse Click With Pathfinding Bug?

Mar 23, 2012

I am currently working on a very simple isometric3d game with a hero to move to mouse click position, using path-finding. I am trying to code everything myself step by step,as a beginner , i am well aware of asolib3d but I don't want to use it...I have read tutorials and few books I completely done with my isometric3d map. i create my path finding A-star class which is working perfectly with 2d grid tiles, but when i try to use it with isometric3d grid world it doesn't work properly.

ActionScript Code:
package  {
import com.sayConcept.isometric.IsoUtils;
import com.sayConcept.isometric.GraphicTile;


my character movement is not correct. If hero position=0,0 and I click 0,10 on my iso grid instead of moving down he will move on the right side. If I am in the middle and I click on the left he will move right. and like few steps for where it supposes to stop... my pathfinding is ok in 2d but isometric the movement is weird...

Jun 21, 2006

modify this tutorial ([URL]) so that it does this: one of the external swf's has a button in it that loads another external swf in a different area of the stage, so now there would be 2 external swf's displayed on stage. Then, when one of the main buttons is clicked, the exit animation of the 2nd swf is played, then the exit animation of the 1st swf is played, then the new external swf is loaded in the same spot that the 1st one was.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Dynamic Scrolling Text Box Using Kirupa Tutorial

Dec 23, 2003

I've created a dynamic scrolling text box using the kirupa tutorial. It's the tutorial that uses self-made buttons to scroll up and down. In my movie I've got 7 buttons, when one is pressed I want to display different text in the text box. I have it working by loading text from .txt files but it is slow and does not allow me to format the text as I would like. What I'm thinking of doing is creating 7 keyframes on the timeline of the scrollable text. Then in each frame have the different text that I want displayed. When I click on a button it would go to one of those frames thus displaying the corresponding text. I can't get it to work. I've changed the text box to a static text box. I can't get it to move the playhead to the next frame in the text movie clip which the scrollable text box resides in.

I have tried it by using simple loops but the method just fails for no reason I can figure.

IDE :: Adapting Kirupa's "Adding Thumbnails" Tutorial (MX 2004) Into Just Plain Old MX?

Jan 11, 2009

continue the success with incorporating the scrolling thumbnails feature to my current galleries.I have done my best to incorporate the code from Kirupa's "Adding Thumbnails" tutorial to my site, but have a feeling the loader class is only MX 2004 and on, and I'm using plain old MX. I have absolutely no thumbnails showing up at all.

PS I also found two discrepancies in the tutorial:

1. Initial code to be pasted has a line such as this:

target_mc._x = hit_left._x+(eval("thumbnail_mc.t"+k)._width+5)*k;

and later in the tutorial that same code is treated as this:

target_mc._x = hit_left._x+(target_mc._width+5)*k;

2. Initial code to be pasted has a line such as this:

}else if ((_root._xmouse<=40) && (thumbnail_mc.hitTest(hit_left))){

but later in the tutorial when it's broken down it's listed as this:

}else if ((_root._xmouse<=(hit_left._x+40)) && (thumbnail_mc.hitTest(hit_left))) {

It's very difficult to test all possible variations in this, but I think I have, as there were 4 possible combinations since 2 lines of code varied. But none of them worked. Either way, would be good to know which users should be using. A little help in identifying: "snowThumbMC" is the name of my empty movie clip instance on my stage, in which I should be loading all of the thumbnails.

1. Is "target_mc" the name of an actual movie clip I should have on the stage somewhere? Or is it simply an empty one created via code to hold info?? I'm trying to figure out what exactly "target_mc" refers to.

2. Is "pictureValue" an actual value of a variable named "picture"? If so, should I have this variable on stage somewhere? I'm just not sure by reading the code (since I can't properly read it) what exactly "picture" refers to.

function thumbNailScroller() {
// thumbnail code!
this.createEmptyMovieClip("tscroller", 1000);
scroll_speed = 10;

ActionScript 2.0 :: Photo Gallery XML Tutorial - Grid Thumbnails Version?

Aug 1, 2006

I saw the tutorial here on how to make a Flash XML photo gallery with a scrolling thumbnail bar. Awesome!

The thing is, the example he DIDN'T choose to illustrate is the one I want make - exactly.[URl]..Is there somewhere else I can find this? The problem is that I have say, 16 photos and I want 4 displaying on the stage at one time. I want a forward / back button available to switch through the remaining 12 images, when the user clicks the buttons (as opposed to a scroller, which I find difficult to control and therefore less useable).

The problem comes when loading the four images from my XML file. I am able to load the first four, but how do I indicate in AS that the next four images are to be loaded, until there are no more images left? What if I add 5 more, I want to be able to have that AS load them. I was using a mod function in my script, but I keep getting the wrong remainder. I'll have to post the code later.

I've tested myself silly on the computers i own but there doesnt seem to be a problem.However, the person i made this for keeps saying text doesnt show up. I've seen the results of his instance of this tool and the keen, trained eye suggests that every row gets stretched out to the bottom (and beyond) of the page. A select all copy paste into plain text app suggests there is no text in the pdf (except for the text that IS showing up)
