Wheeeeee, I'm nuts.

ok, so here's a tutorial for some Flash basics, for those who are starting from scratch or want some advice on how to go about some basic scripting. :)

I'll be adding more later, I'm just on a tight schedule right now. :0

How is it possible I failed literally everything and I did everything by the instructions ;-;
Is it because I have CS5?

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning!
Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental
hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the
staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so
they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the
machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died.
Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on
a Monday night at 12:00 a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you
and watching you bleed to death. Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and
she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if you copy and paste
this to ten comments in the next ten minutes you will have the best day of your life tomorrow.You
will either get kissed or asked out, if you break this chain u will see a little dead girl in you

If you have time I've got a question....

I am having troubles lol I have a pokeball, and I want the button to be the actual button, but i keep converting it to a button and itkeeps saying "current selection cannot have actions applied to it" :(
Reply
:iconpettyartist:
pettyartist Featured By Owner Feb 3, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
Hmmm.... check to see if you don't have any actions applied to it accidentally by pressing F9 with that selected. If it's clear, make sure that the entire pokeball is highlighted by double-clicking on it (it should have white dots on it). After that you should be able to right-click and convert it to a button. :)


Other than that, I'm not sure why it's doing that. :\

hey, I am trying out the buttons and music making a small webcomic with images :)

My buttons work just fine, but the music won't play at the beggining.
Any ideas as to why or what I need to listen to music from the beggining, and click on the button and see the next frame hearing the same song?

Idk if you understood, but for example. lets just say you are listening to music apart and you are checking various photos.
What I want is to be able to check all the photos without altering the music's play

pettyartist Featured By Owner Aug 3, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
As long as you place teh music on the stage and not attatch it to a button, it should play through without it altering it-- here's the catch:

If you do that and the viewer hits the back button, if the frame the button takes them to has the music on it, it will start playing it again, but overtop of the already-playing song. So what you'd need to do is make sure the code takes the viewer to a frame with the image on it, but not the sound. Here's a picture to help explain it:

So basically it creates the ability to go back without layering your music. :nod:

Also, if you want that same song to continue playing endlessly, make sure that in the properties box when you place the sound, you change the setting to "loop"

athorment Featured By Owner Aug 3, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
Lets see...
I made a layer for music (maybe thats a mistake)
I added Play(); while in other layer for the buttons and Images I use stop(); (which might be another reason) so you can "read" the story and then click next whenever you like.
I took out the stop(); of each frame and found out the music plays just fine.... But the images run and play as a normal animation rendering rather useless the next button.
:idea: I think I might be able to use a movieclip.... but if you just read what my mistake is, do tell

:iconpettyartist:
pettyartist Featured By Owner Aug 3, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
Well you shouldn't need the play action, since it'll auto play unless/until specified, so having the stop actions on the layer (and not on the button) should work. After that, just either stay in the same scene and add the next page after the stop action and have a stop action on the frame for the next page with buttons that have the On release go to and play "frame name" or add new scenes for each page. :nod:

You need to place a "stop" action on the frame itself, then it'll stop on the frame with the button. :)

Hmmmm, I'm facing a dilemma. how can you add sounds to buttons. Like when you click on a button, how can you make a music play from that click? :O
Reply
:iconpettyartist:
pettyartist Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
You would double-click on your button to open up the menu for it, then create a new layer. add a keyframe to the down section listed in the timeline, then drag your sound onto the stage

Now when you click the button, it should play music. :)

megasean3000 Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2009  Student Digital Artist
Both the start ball and the end ball have to be Graphics/Movie Clips. You possibly have it as a normal thing. Here's a tip to avoid this:

Make your thing.
Turn it into a graphic.
Add a new Keyframe wherever you want.
On that frame move/transform it whatever you like.
Add the tween.
Tah-dah! :D
