EDIT: DAILY 4TH!?!?!?! I LOVE YOU NEWGROUNDS :3 Tutorial collection too! Thanks Tom :D!
Wow. This took a while. You'll see what you mean when you see how much detail i've put into this and how many frames. My proudest work to date. This covers:

Movement
Gravity
Floors
Doors
Walls
Enemy AI
Attacks
Health And Items/Powerups.

Sorry about being weak in enemy AI, i'm not very smart in it :P. Right click for options, and enjoy - I put a lot of work into this :)

EDIT: Added Flash API - be sure to click the ad for me ;D. I like moneh :D.

EDIT 2: I flicked through a few reviews, some recent concerning the music. There is a right click menu with options to turn the music off, to let you know ;).

well,

not very helpful, I used my own style for the character, and it animates fine, the gravity script does not work, so i found it useless

enemy AI

never worked. Everything else worked fine i guess, but the enemy AI just gave me 20 syntax errors.

Interesting but lacks ease of use and explanation

It is not even possible to start doing stuff with this as there is no explanation on where to put the code for the player. You say "select the player and write [...]" but previously you told us to create 3 frames so this code would only execute on frame 1...

Be more specific and show more screenies ! For this, you should also reduce your text size and separate your code from your explanations as the tutorial seems way too simplistic and boring as it is now. (And makes it too tiresome to copy paste your code).

A Very Awesome tutorial

You actually know what you are doing and are willing to share how it works with the world. We all know how to copy and paste, but this is what I wanted from a tutorial, you know, LEARNING HOW IT WORKS?

It works great but as with the guy below me i would like to know how to make the character look like they are walking like your Link character, not floating along the ground. Same goes for jumping, standing, dying etc.
PLEASE make more tutorials. The world needs them.
