This tutorial is great for people that want to learn the basics. Didint put any sounds because i thought of the peolpe with dial up, but its a Great tutorial and would reccomend it to anyone. i would also like to credit swedebug for the animations. Button tutorial 3 will come in about 2 weeks, it will include button colors and how to make a button change color when the mouse is over it and when its clicked. Stay tuned.

Very good

Thanks man, this is probably the best button tutorial i have seen. Instead of just giving the AS you went into detail about why you put things where and how to make the as out yourself. very good. thanks again
