Hey this tutorial focuses on almost everything a beginer needs to kick off his time in flash, it also goes into the things on Newgrounds and some extra codes that i added for peoples enjoyment! I worked my ass off on this so i hope u enjoy it and learn sumn.

bad idea

Yeah, GREAT IDEA to make the buttons letter sensitive instead of making their hit-area larger..


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Very helpful!

I think this is excellent, as it provides an introduction for people who want to make something. It's always nice to have an idea of what to do before you do it; I think that would cut down on the number of crappy flash stuff if people knew what to do. BTW I like the techno remix of the invincible star tune!

You are teaching things that are in the flash tutorials for heaven's sake, only teaching it in a much more confusing way.

And here is a BIG tip: properly construct your buttons if you are going to make a tutorial about how to make them. (it looks like you don't know what the "hit" frame is for)


Rated 0.5 / 5 stars

the hit frame is essential

fiddling with teese buttons without it is ultra annoying and it is not difficult to use. These little hints are the aim of tutorials. Teach yourself to use a preloader. And only teach, if you are a real master, or do you think the dummies book series are written by dummies.
But I think this review is senseles, since you are so selfconceited

Crappy buttons

You should have made a bigger "hit" for ur button and actually mention how to do it in your tutorial. And also u should have put a stopallsounds(); before playing the new tracks.

Could have been better

Less, text more pictures, it was to much text. Many ppl dont bother to read. Besides your buttons sucked!

got cool? :D :D

Just wot people need

Its good to know that someone cares about people learning flash @@


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

You kept me interested for a bit...

so good work. but PLZ sort out the buttons, they're a pain to click on, and your custom curser was a pain to get rid off, but still good work.

This is great

If this was around when i first started flash i would be the god, it may not have much animation but it has bloody great content keep up the good work dude

You really are helping people

It's also helping me...but I've noticed 2 small things though:

1) If you press a music button, and then another one the other won't stop, so you'll get some kind of mix but it doesn't sound :P Anyways so you've got to press the stop music button first...

2) Please, make those buttons bigger. Well the buttonsize isn't small, but the place to push is, it's only 1 small dot so you've got to aim for it. Just make the whole button clickable :p

Well for the rest it all rox :D
Keep on doing this.


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

not bad... but room for improvement

More people should make tutorials like this, but as has already been said and is proably the most annoying thing with this flash, you've made it hard work to click on some of the buttons, because you have to click on the words instead of the whole area of the button! @_@


Rated 4 / 5 stars

AH, shut up Bobly

Looked pretty good man!I know how a pain it is to programm all these buttons and menus, and thanks for the explanation of the kissdoll stuff, i was toying with that myself for a while too now..

meh, not good or bad

well, good try, but i wouldn't exactly all it the best tutorial i've seen on here, nor is it the worst.
however, it is definately a lot better then some of the other crap you've out on here. keep trying with flash and use the audio portal and you'll have some good stuff on here


Rated 3 / 5 stars


It would be better if you could click on the button easyer.
Overall is pretty good.


Rated 1.5 / 5 stars

not that bad

not that great either but usefull i guess ..
however you've got some attitude problems .. you are likely to get people to respect less of your work because it's been done by you. and likely to make everybody think about who are you to call anyone 'kiddie' after such childish reactions... try responding in a controlled clear manner .. keeping your finger off the caps lock .. addressing every form criticisms in a professional way. that is what most times separates a class of artists independantly of their work.


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

above average

but couldve done with alot more 'refining'. but dont get me wrong, this covers alot of good shtuff. but i found a few things that if worked on a lil more could make this tutorial much better:

1: the buttons... now im not saying they didnt work, but the space in which you had to actually click them was frustratingly small. if the 'click' size was made to fit the whole button, this tutorial would be much easier to use.

2: The screen shots... even though they can be extremely helpful, your screen shots were very small and hard to see. even though the option to enlarge them was there, it was still very hard to read and therefore understand. If they were of better quality, and maybe all on a seperate page, it would be alot better.

3: the layout... i think that the layout of the tutorial could have been better... first off, the background colour, PURPLE... im not saying its a gay colour (did i say that?? lol) but its probably not the best of colours to put on a tutorial. (makes the text a bit harder to read, a more simple colour would do just fine)...
the 'homepage' of the tutorial.. i think that it would be a good idea to put short descriptions of what the topic is explaining under the heading.. for example : Dress-ups: what to do, what/how to make. and just little things like that can improve the tutorial out of site.

so overall, a pretty good tutorial, but as always, this piece of work could do with a bit MORE work. but newayz, well done, n best of luc with future shtuff.

Thank you for the tut!

I know you've gotten some flack for this tut but I wanted to say thank you. I know educating can be a thankless job (I taught and tutored my way through grad school), and I also realize it's not like you got paid or commisioned to do this work, you're doing it for the satisfaction of helping others and I respect that a lot.

My fav part of the tutorial was how you explained WHAT things are. I have seen all too many times where people say "make this a movie clip" without saying why and now I think I finally understand. I am putting together a larger project hopefully to be released in the summer and this sort of understanding helps me out a ton.

Some ideas on future tuts would be more advanced tweening/guiding, and when to use frame-by-frame vs reg animation. I look forward to it.

Thanks! :)

Wow... This is helpful.

This is very useful... I'm starting my first flash movie soon so yeah... And in the button section, where is the "blue code at the bottom"?


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Uh, just one thing before I thank you.

Maybe I was the only one to have this problem but, you kind of had to have your curser in just the right spot everytime you wanted to click to get to another section. But other than that. . .*sitting in lotus position*. . . thank you very much oh wise and gernous syc0_clown85 for once again gracing us with your knowledge.

Rated 4 / 5 stars

Nice tutorial

I thought the content was great and really gave you an in depth knowledge of these functions for flash which is rarely fully explained.

Just one thing though, next time it would be nice if you made it a little more attractive, im sure this will help you get a better score especially for those who are hopelessly illiterate and it might just keep there 2 second attention span a little longer.

However the buttons were friggin' hard to click, and those boxes only help stand them out. The tutes were nice but the screens were a little small.


Rated 1.5 / 5 stars

Not that good.

Those buttons were impossible to press. Some of the scripts didn't even work. I didn't like it.
