ActionScript 3.0 :: Way Of Removing Enemy Character Permanently

Jul 9, 2011

I am trying to remove an enemy after I kill them and I just started working with code in .as files. The enemy has it's own logic in a .as file and when I use removeChild, the movieclip is removed, but the logic continues to attack the main character (invisible).Is there a better way of removing the enemy character permanently. It kind of scares me that the method I use could just be leaving invisible movieclips on the screen as well.I've tried everything that I have used in previous games: removeChild(EnemyArray[i]);And this, which causes other problems with my code but removes the logic: EnemyArray[i] = null;But these still cause the problem.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Enemy Attack - Make The Enemy Pause When It Reaches The Character, Then Choose An Attack To Use?

Mar 18, 2006

I am currently making a game, similar to StreetFighter,where enemies will come on from the side and you fight them. Now i have the character movement and attacks fully scripted, and have made an enemy, and i make it move towards the character using:

movethy = 7;
scale = _xscale;[code].....

Now this works quite well and the enemy stops when it hits the character, but the problem is, it wont complete a full attack, instead it plays a few frames of the attack MC. Now i have every attack in a different MC (Frames 2-5) inside the Enemy MC. How can i make the enemy pause when it reaches the character, then choose an attack to use? From there i'll be on my way and can script the hittest and so forth.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Can't Get Character To Die When He Touches The Enemy

Oct 25, 2009

I added attack to my character in the game and he attacks and the enemy dissapears, the problem if I can't get my character to die when he touches the enemy. I got it to work once but what happened was that even if I hit the enemy, as soon as I hit it I got to the game over screen and got stuck on a loop between the gameover screen and the moment I defeat the monster.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Removing Enemy From An Array, Instance Still Is On Stage?

May 8, 2010

Alright, so really I am having 2 difficulties here.

1) When a bullet hits an enemy, if 2 zombies are beside eachother, the bullet hits them both -- How can I make it so the bullet can only hit one?

2) When an enemy has health of 0, it dies, I am trying to get the enemy to be removed from the array that the bullet searches through so it will no longer be affected by the enemy, but it doesnt seem to work, the bullet still hits where the enemy was, as if the enemy is invisible.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Focus Events - Removing Text One Character At A Time

Oct 26, 2009

I'm trying to put the text back into a text field on FOCUS_OUT one character at a time. On FOCUS_IN, I want to remove the text one character at a time.

Here's the basic code:
major.text = "ActionScript 3.0";
major.addEventListener(FocusEvent.FOCUS_IN, inFocus);
major.addEventListener(FocusEvent.FOCUS_OUT, outFocus);
function inFocus(event:FocusEvent):void {
major.text="";// want to clear the text one character at a time
} function outFocus(event:FocusEvent):void {
major.text="ActionScript 3.0"; // want to put the text back in one character at a time

I attached a fla. that does this in ActionScript 2.0, but I'm trying to do this in ActionScript 3.0.

ActionScript 2.0 :: If Hit The Enemy Ball (instance Name Is "enemy") It'll Disappear?

Mar 28, 2008

I have a ball (instance name is "ball") and if I hit the enemy ball (instance name is "enemy") it'll dissappear, and add 100 points. At the same time, I want them to multiply and get faster.The enemy has a follower code:

onClipEvent (enterFrame) {
if (_root.ball._x>_x) {
_x += 2;[code]....

And the ball has a code that is secret because if I give it to you it'll spoil the game idea.The dynamic text box has an instance of "points".I have my mute sound control done and the ball you control done.

Flash :: Stop All Sounds Permanently In AS3?

Mar 30, 2010

I have a main swf which has sound on/off buttons. It has many SWF's which are loaded into different placeholders at different time. All of them have different sounds in them. In addition to that there is a music loop going on in the background.Now, this perticular swf lets call it Father will be placed in some swf later on. What I'm trying to do right now is when the sound off button is pressed turn off all the sounds permanently so the child swf's and their sounds stop too.I have found a way in AS2 :

global = new Sound( ) //no movie clip target path.

and add the following code to your off button.

global.setVolume(0); //mutes all sound

which ofcourse does not work for AS3. So how can I stop all sounds permanently in AS3? Secondly what if I have one sound (my background loop) which I want to keep going on.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Can't Permanently Hide Object

Jan 13, 2012

I'm working on a project that has multiple 'scenes' located on each frame. In one scene, if you click on an object it disappears. I did this using the visible = false method. However, anytime you return the scene after, the object is visible again. How would I write the code so that it stays invisible permanently when you click it, regardless of whether or not you leave and later return to the scene?

ActionScript 2.0 :: Create An Object / Button That Permanently Changes?

Jan 20, 2009

I'm trying to make a game, but I'm stuck on a few conceptual parts that I'm not sure how to handle.

I want to create an object that changes its picture when I click on it. My idea was to have a creature that once you click on, changes to a different state. For example, you have a picture of a balloon and when you click on it, it plays the animation of it popping.

I have no idea how to do that, I've looked at buttons but it doesn't seem to persist in the state once you click on it. (or maybe it does and I'm just not doing it correctly?)

ActionScript 3.0 :: Load Files (via Download) Permanently

May 27, 2011

if you can do with the files that were loaded through the Loader class (or another class) remain permanently on the computer of who uploaded the application. That is, even if the person closes the browser or shut down the computer, the files remain on your computer. So when the person is running the same application will not need to wait until the files have been loaded (via download).

The person will enter in the browser page where the application is already included and you can use this application, without waiting any time since the necessary files are not on the computer. If any new files later arose in the application, this would be the only file to be loaded (downloadable) for the computer, which already found the other files that have already been loaded at another time. I can do this in actionscript 3.0? Note: Do not bother with my English because I'm using the google translator.

ActionScript 3.0 :: How To Get Objects To Disappear Permanently OnClick

Nov 1, 2009

I have a 'room' movieclip with 4 frames each representing a different view (N,S,W,E). I have a different shape object in each frame. The shape objects all subclass a generic shape class and consequently disappear onClick. The problem is that they reappear when the frame is revisited. I've used = false in the generic shape class. I'm wondering if there is a way to 'permanently' remove them through the generic shape/parent class? I'm trying to avoid a rank of if functions and use a catch-all if possible.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Changing Base Class Permanently In Flash

Dec 28, 2010

For some reason Adobe doesn't allow us to change the size of the handle in the default slider component. This handle is small and hard to click on quickly. If you try to increase the size of it graphically it just gets resized back down to 13x13 pixels. I've looked into the code found in:

Program Files(x86)/Adobe/Adobe Flash CS4/Common/Configuration/Component Source/ActionScript3.0/User Interface/fl/controls/

And found that on line 803 there is the code thumb.setSize(13,13). I tried changing that to 60,60 but it doesn't change the size of the handle. I don't know much about classes and I didn't think you had to compile these. I thought that in Flash when you clicked on the Components button that it loaded these classes in at that point but I must be wrong.

ActionScript Code:
override protected function configUI():void {
thumb = new BaseButton();
thumb.setSize(60, 60);
[Code] .....
