Im new to flash and still learning. I have read several guides and followed several walkthroughs to making basic flash apps. Now i've begun attempting to make a small little game just to hone my abilitys with flash and I come to release that there is something I have absolutely no idea how to do.
Please explain to me how to do it too so I can do it in the future instead of just throwing a complete script at me, and if more explaination is needed I will also be happy to try to better describe the goal I am trying to get out of this.
So basically this is what im trying to do... The player is a sprite character centered in the screen. I have set it up so they player can move both left and right. When the player moves however... it is a sliding image and looks quite bad. I already have sprite files for a 6 frame 'step' for the character to do while moving but I don't know how to make it so that the script tells the game to use specific sprites while certain buttons are pressed. I also don't know how to do timing while I believe is also required for this.
Thanks in advance for any and all help provided!
you'll probably find it easiest to master gotoAndPlay and gotoAndStop. you can apply those to your character movieclip to display the frame(s) appropriate to the key-press.
