Here it is, the ultimate tutorial for basic ActionScripting.
It has 11 Parts.

Fundamentals 1. Operators - Making Operators operate
Fundamentals 2. Statements and Loops - The basic building blocks of ActionScript
Fundamentals 3. Function Syntax - Proper function Syntax
Fundamentals 4. Comments - My comments on comments

1. MovieClips - Using onClipEvents
2. Buttons - Handling these Clickables
3. Variables - The data holders that run any game
4. TimeLine - TimeLine operations such as play()
5. Coordinates - X, Y, and moving movieClips
6. HitTests - Collision detections and why they're important
7. Functions - Creating and using them

Choc-full of example scripts, example demos, and screenshots.
In depth explanations.

I made it to where you can't copy and paste.
And this is that way for a reason.
So people will actually learn and memorize it, and not how to Copy & Paste it.

Thanks to Poppetje3D for the background music.

Just another tutorial.

What the title to this review says. Also, 4+5*2 ultimately = 14, not 18, unless you write it out: (4+5)2.
