I've been writing the content of this tutorial for a couple of weeks now, and I thought I'd submit a relatively brief tutorial on the main components of what I've made so far. I hope you enjoy it, and I hope you can follow all of it. Please leave any critisisms you may have, it's all appreciated. Thanks
Oh and I'm also currently working on more content to put into a second tutorial as a sequel to this one. Leave any ideas you have or anything you want to be put in and I'll work on putting it all in!

pretty cool

it was pretty cool, i found a glitch though, with the moving band thing, that its supposed to bounce off of, if you position it so that its at more than a 45 degree angle from a wall and you drop the ball in between it and the wall it will fall right into it and then through it, and if you move the ball too fast it can go through surfaces

good job

Nice physics engine-scripting you got there =3 However I see that it doesnt jump off corners properly though...the ball becomes "deflated" after touching the sharp corner.
so, err arctan in the calculator is tan rite?

Lozman2k3k responds:

Thanks, yeah I found while making it that from some angles it tends to jump off the corners a little unnaturally. Although I think if you change the corner surfaces from just partial circles to full circles to prevent a little gap between the adjacent flat surfaces appearing, that should help. Oh, arctan is like the opposite of nomal tan, like + is the opposite of -. So if you did arctan to a tan, they cancel each other out.

I tried desperatly to understand. BUT I DIDN"T GET A WORD OF IT. Well... i got a few. But not many. Having started flash totally on my own this week u have inspired me to make a "play" button!
