have you already made all those movieclip animations?
Not yet but i do know how to make them and i do have all graphics done.
add a stop() to frame 1 of each of your movieclips (and a stop() to the last frame if that's what you want).
then you could use something like the following for your spray tan (and likewise for the reset);
// if the object you want to click to start the spray tan animation if spray_tan_obj and the spray tan animation movieclip is spray_tan_mc (and those can be the same), use
Its not really the animation i need help with, Its the switching between skin, i can make a button that when clicked goes to the tan skin, but to do so it goes to that specific tan so the problem is if another button is introduced that turns human to mermaid how can that spray tan effect the mermaid base as well? i would have to make a button that goes to the specific tan mermaid. But i want the button to turn the girl tan regardless of which form she is in. and i want it to remember what skin color it is in when it turns into the mermaid form of that color.
Same with the hair i want them to be able to click onto a certain hairdo and when a button is pressed all the hair choices change from pale to gold, so that if you pick a different hairdo its still in the golden selection and the hair chosen doesn't change to a different hairdo when you switch the color.
and i still need to make 2 items on 2 different levels move together when dragged or selected. like say there's a coat , if the bottom of the coat isn't on a different level then the top it will appear awkwardly in the front of the character. or with hair using buttons to select a certain hair if its on the mermaid form the hair that's behind the character will appear awkwardly on the front of her tail , so i had to make the hair in 2 pieces and i need to find a way for them to be selected at the same time by the button.
Also need to find a way to make hidden outfits appear by pressing buttons. its one thing to press a button to make one item appear but to make a set of say 5 or 6 items is new to me.
that's a design issue. you have to design your own app.
the two ways to do it would be to use the same tan features for mermaid and not-mermaid so the tan/non-tan would be a layer over the 2 models or create 4 models.
No Offence but you are really not being very helpful. i appreciate the earlier script. and with the images i have the tan base the pale base a pale mermaid base and tan mermaid base. i cant just make the tail a different part because they aren't shaped the same way, if the tail was onto you would see the legs underneath it.
apparently you don't like either of the two ways i suggested so maybe someone else can think of another way.
