If you're not too familiar with object-oriented coding, try viewing my other tutorial submission first (Object Oriented AS).

This Flash tutorial is meant to introduce the moderately experienced Flash user to a world of platform game design using movie-clip fundamentals fused with ActionScript coding in an object-oriented space.

My second tutorial. Please let me know what you think. If you think it moves too fast, leaves some things out that could otherwise have been covered in more detail, anything you like, etc.

its really helpfull. the only problem (4 me) was that i couldn't copy and paste things. probarbly jut me though.

Any of the code-boxes that you click to open during the tutorial should be copy and paste-able. You DO have to click and drag to highlight all of the text in those boxes... or I think pressing the [Control] + [A] key combination will also select-all in the text box. Then just use [Control]+[C] to copy, and paste into your text-editor of choice... or directly into Flash.

brilliant, but only one thing when i insert the "game" symbol it comes up with errors, this may be because i have not inserted it in position (0,0) please tell me how to do this.
