I see the Flash forum is still receiving the same old requests. So, I thought why not make new topics to specifically deal with the recurring themes; then add them all to notepad or another topic, so that users asking 'how do I make it move' or 'how do I use sound' can be easily sent to the relevant thread. This is different to the 'Actionscripts here' thread, in that each subject that crops up time and time again will have its own thread, named (for example) AS: Basic Movement. Each thread, once created, will be a place to add refinements to the code or different variations... so all you coders, feel free to contribute with script or relevant links. I'm going to attempt to create one of these every couple of days, and then they'll from linked in this topic; I'd also recommend keeping a copy in notepad.
If anybody else fancies creating such a thread, please fell free - name it AS: whatever. The subjects that need dealing with, that I can think of offhand, are: gravity - attachSound - friction - preloader - quality/menu - hitTest... hmmm.. I'll have to go through the 'Actionscript codes here' topic at some point and make a list of the most commonly asked questions.
These will not be tutorials as such, just snippets of code with basic instructions on where to put them, and any links that seem relevant.
Anyway, to start it off: AS: Basic Movement
