Thirty easy to follow steps on how to make a sweet looking round button.

I am building a website with flash tutorials and the likes for beginning flash artists.
Currently, it's as good as empty so I NEED YOU to contribute tutorials to the website, if you have any experience with flash.


Don't feel like doing that? Then at least help me out by submitting this to the Tutorial section on Newgrounds!



hey man nice job with your tutorial. I WAS working on one which got pretty far along, but it got erased so ill submit it to newgrounds and your site soon. later!

Good Job

I am pretty new at the whole flash thing and his tutorial was a great help. But as a suggestion try to explian what he more complicated steps do, or how you can do different things with all the options there and give examples of them.

Apart from that great flash and I congradulate you on making the flash tutorial site!

TheStronghold responds:

If you experiment with the different options and follow several tutorials, you get the hang of the program and think of new ways to combine certain things to achieve an effect.

The program is too complicated to explain every function, so explaining a series of steps to create something should be enough for you, if you follow enough tutorials.

Nobody said learning flash was going to be easy, just hang on and you'll get the hang of it in a month or two.

Nice Button!

It was actually a pretty nice button you made there, though it don't make up to the stuff you missed, like interesting text... at least make the "Step #" a bit thicker or another color, besides, i also think you mistyped CTRL+C with CTRL+X, i dunno. also, i don't get why you just didn't corrected your error instead of writing you were wrong. This is flash not Word! ...But the button was cool :D

TheStronghold responds:

CTRL + X is cut, CTRL + C is copy. I did that on purpose.

Also, correcting the "error" this way was a ton easier, I'd have to rewrite a ton of steps had I corrected it in the tutorial itself. It's also no biggie, it's just moving a fill from one layer to another.

this is poo

what the hell is this

TheStronghold responds:

Fuck you. Seriously, just, fuck you.

I have one major problem...

If you're writing tutorials for beginner Flash artists, I don't really think it's acceptable to have mistakes in the tutorial itself. It'd be better to simply redo the slide with the mistake on than to draw attention to the fact you've made a mistake.

Otherwise...yeah it's okay. The graphics, though basic, do their job well enough and I'm glad to see a proper music credit.


TheStronghold responds:

It was a bitch to repair the mistake all those steps back, and it was a 2 second fix by telling them to use the grouped image. It wasn't really a mistake even, just a bit of flawed logic that was easily correctable.
