it's just my last attempt! Don't blam it! no more music, no more BG, simple text!

please don't vote if you don't understand it, you need to have a really logic mind.

Edit: Sorry, at the start it says "simply figure out press make buttons" It was an accident, just ignore it, I was going to do a password to make it start, but I decided not to, and forgot to delete all of it!

Edit: Also, try to find the Easter Egg

Needs Something

It needs quite a bit actually. There was no way to return to previous pages without refreshing. Also you said it had much simpler text when in fact much prettier text and graphics probably would have spiced this up.

Overall it was bland and kind of drab, but it does a pretty good job of explaining how to create and code buttons (despite the grammatical mistakes), so it's deserving of a fairly decent score.


This little clip helped me to get a button to work. I couldnt get it working myself so i am great to know the proper way of making the button.
Thanks for the clip.


You fail, but nice try though.


There are hundreds of these, and this one doesn't stand out at all.

First of all, there was no back button.

You have very bad grammar and spelling.

You didn't explain this very well, either. "Press F8 and a box will appear". "Name it button so it doesn't confuse you". "Leave Registration as it is."

I think you should have explained everything in the MOVIECLIP PROPERTIES PANEL (aka "Box") rather than having the user skip through everything in it.

You also said to put a }: at the end of the button's actions. That'll create a compiler error! Use semicolons (;) you moron.

You didn't explain any of the button events, except for "onPress". There are many more button events to learn, such as onRelease, onRollOver, onDragOut, onDragOver, onRollOut, etc.

And finally, you taught the oh-so-inefficient way of placing code on movieclips or buttons. It's ALWAYS better to give the button an instance name, and put the code on a frame. For example:

myBut.onRelease = function(){
