This is an introduction to the Flash user environment for aspiring developers! I made this in 1999, so it is probably featuring the Flash 3 layout. Things haven't changed TOO MUCH, though, so it's still a decent intro.

I am submitting this to the Portal before I overhaul our tutorial page to be part of the collection system. To make a long story short, all the tutorials need to be in the Portal in order to be featured through the database system. This tutorial was never part of the Portal before.

When it gets past the key-frame bit, it kinda freeze's, it says to go back to the main menu, I press the arrow, and there is nothing happening, then I search the screen for a Main Menu button, NO BUTTON! Any answers? If so get back to me.

I know how to make a flash!

These tutorials will teach you all about the Flash environment, with individual lessons about animation and actionscript programming!

STEP 1: Get a Free 30-Day trial version of Flash!

STEP 2: Get the Newgrounds pre-loader FLA!

You can use the Newgrounds pre-loader in all your creations, so they load properly on the web. Feel free to replace the tank logo with your own art, although we always love and appreciate exposure for Newgrounds!

STEP 3: Get Aquainted with the environment. Once you've gotten the hang of things, you can use these tutorials to learn more of the basics! The following are good artistic resources STEP 4: Submit your Flash to Newgrounds!

Be sure you have optimized your audio!

Also be sure you are using a pre-loader!

The Portal FAQ explains our guidelines and how our submission system works.

Fill out the submission form and your Flash is on its way to worldwide recognition! :)

STEP 5: Strive to improve!

There are many resources available to Flash developers. Here are some sites that can help you!
