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");
[Code] .....

How To Align MovieClip To Top Left

Sep 12, 2009

This should be relatively simple, except that my entire movie (site) is TopCenter based. I just have one movie clip (some text) that I need to be top Left aligned & I can't figure out how to put it there, especially since it is within an MC that is centered and full-screen (liquid layout). This is my code right now (within terminal MC):

PHP Code:
// initiate postitions and scaling values for objects
//////The below is what I need left-aligned; current values are incorrect:
//_level0.terminal_stage.terminal.terminal_text._x = -440;
//_level0.terminal_stage.terminal.terminal_text._y = -315;
_level0.terminal_stage.terminal.terminal_bg._width = Stage.width;
_level0.terminal_stage.terminal.terminal_bg._height = Stage.height;
[Code] .....

The terminal_text MC should be about 20px from the left edge & 20px from the top edge of the browser...

ActionScript :: MovieClip Moves To The Left, But Not The Right

Apr 22, 2010

I have a stage with a movie clip with the instance name of "mc". Currently I have a code that is suppose to move the player left and right, and when the left or right key is released, the "mc" slides a little bit. The problem I'm having is that making the "mc" move to the left works, but the exact some code used for the right doesn't.


I just don't get why when you press the left arrow its works completely fine, but when you press the right arrow it doesn't respond. It is literally the same code.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Find Left / Right Side Of Movieclip?

May 4, 2006

Way with actionscript to determine the right and left side of a movie clip? I have a row of dynamiclly loaded pictures that load into a movieclip and then have arrows that scroll the photos left and right using an interval and _x +=10. The scroll works great. Only problem is, it just goes on and on and on if you keep pressing the arrow. Is there any way to tell it where the left and right side are and not to let either side go past a certain point.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Moving MovieClip Only From Left To Right On Same Lane

Jul 26, 2010

How to make movieclips move only from left to right under the same lane (meaning it is like marching on a lane straight) and stop at 3/4 of the whole stage(3/4 of a stage is a platform I wish to have) irregardless of how big the stage is then disappear. When the object move and get closer to the edge of the platform, the player press either left or right arrow keys to so called remove the object. When click on the right arrow key, "rectangle box" disappear and left arrow key, "circle box" disappear. After like a certain timing(let say its a minute), it would go to another frame to show end of the game.

ActionScript 2.0 :: MovieClip Movement (Right To Left) Not Smooth

Dec 7, 2004

I have the following script in both frame 1 and 2 to let a movieclip move from right to left on the stage:
speed =-5
name._x += speed
if (name._x<-500) {
name._x = 250;
And the clip is indeed moving from right to left on the stage and when it reaches _x -550 it is going back to it's starting position _x 250 only the movement isn't smooth at all. What should I do to make the movement more smooth or should I use a completely different script?

ActionScript 2.0 :: CS3 Scale MovieClip But Adjust X Position Of MC's To Left And Right Of It

Sep 14, 2010

I have 4 movieClips on stage named text1, text2 etc. When I RollOver any one of them I have a tween which changes their xscale and yscale. So basically when you rollover they get bigger and when you rollout they go back to 100 scale.

What I want to be able to do is make it so that if I hover over item 3 then item 4's x position is shifted according to the scale of item 3. I ALSO want to be able to move items 1 and 2 to the left to account for the new scale. I can do this but only by moving things to the right, I cannot understand how to make items to the left of that selected update their x position to account for the scale.

the code I'm using is:


The onEnterFrame function is working but only shifting the x position of items that are on the right of that currently selected - it doesn't scale the selected item and shift things left and right accordingly.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Dynamic MovieClip Scroller (Left To Right Style)

May 9, 2006

I am building a dynamic movie clip scoller in flash the swf at the moment returns all the images from the db using an asp page and does display them side by side! I am using a method of loading that I am not 100% sure about as I need to make the whole thing scroll left to right style....and right to left....

The code for this loading is ..
myLoader = new MovieClipLoader();
function loadPics() {
myY = 0;
myX = 0;
for (i=0; i<=_root.image_array_length-1; i++) {
_root.attachMovie("image", "image"+i, i);
this["image"+i]._x = myX;

Now when I am making this scroll I am confused as to what to target to make scroll - the 'image' movieclip is in the library and uses linkage identifer of 'image' for the script... and also seems to sit on the highest layer/depth each time....

Actionscript :: Make A MovieClip Rotate Around It's Center Point To The Left Or Right?

Jun 27, 2011

I need to make a MovieClip rotate around it's center point to the left or right depending on mouse drag. I got some basic semblance of what i want going, but it's pretty hackish. Normally i calculate the angle and such but i only really need to use the distance the mouse travels and apply it to the movieclip and for flavor add some nice easing when you let go.

public function Main()
var wereld:MainScreen = new MainScreen();
addChild( wereld );
