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:

Enemy AI
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 ;).

I do exactly the same thing you do and...

NOTHING HAPPENS just players frame 1 2 3
cannot move or anything!


Rated 2 / 5 stars

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.

Thanks but...

Dude thanks foor putting this out im sure it will help at some point in time, but i began this little lesson shooting vodka after an already protracted battle with mountain dew voltage/vodka which tastes alot like alcoholic cotton candy...anyway back to the point-ish...that intro song you had made me think of japanese techno and i then spent the next hour listening to it while i carved out my little gangsta monochomic protagonist...Thanks fo putting this up it helps a good deal.
