I don't think you get the concept of actually "teaching" something. These are not "how to make..." tutorials, these are just "how I made...".
Using this guide, I got quite good at pressing F8 and F9, but you should at least explain the code you want us to copy & paste. Yes, somebody who knows at least a bit of programming can partially understand it, but since you call it "tutorial" and not "try this", it should be explained to some level.
And btw, the third lesson's code is quite strangely displayed.

it was good, but the only thing you can improve on is that instead of just giving the actionscript, explain how to write the action script, take us through it, expalin what each section of the action script means and then give us an example if we are still confused. Other than that good work!

andi don't know what to do . i don't think it works. *sob*

Vance responds:

You probably have your script in a frame, make sure the script is in the MOVIE CLIP, and make it it -is- a movie clip.
