Hi, i am wanting to make a game on Flash 4. So far i
am able to move the robot around the screen using
direcsionall buttons. What i would like to know is if
it is poosssible and how if the robot goes over
anouther robot and the person presses the space bar it
could load to anouther screen or take a life off the
other robot. Could you give me the coding please eg.
tell target and then what you write in detail please
as i am a new beginer , Thanks. Also if it is not to
much trouble i was woundering if you could tell me how
the computer could move around a robot and attack the
persons robot. If you cant help is it possible you
could direct me to someone who can, thanks once again
PS could you e-mail me futher help at firstname.lastname@example.org, Thanks
assume that the user controlled robo's instance names is
"robo1" and suppose another computer controlled robo's names is "robo2".
Create a keyframe with name "objeck check"
Code to put in it :
If(/robo1:_x = robo1:_x)
TellTarget("Name of the movie clip you want to play)
Goto and Play|(frame number)
If it dosen't work out aske me or drope a line
So that didn't work out. Actually I forgot Flash calculates position from the centre.
Observe this example that I have made. There are two rectangles or width 66. so there midpoint is in terms of width is 33.
If the link for downloading the fla dosen't work from there use http://www7.ewebcity.com/shiningstar/movie1.zip
The name of the clips I have used are <b>a</b> and <b>b</b>
An invisible button traces the actions.
On (Key: <Right>)
Set Property ("/a", X Position) = GetProperty("/a",_x)+5
On (Key: <Space>)
If (GetProperty("/a",_x)+33 >= GetProperty("/b",_x)-33 and GetProperty("/a",_x)- GetProperty("/b",_x) <=66 )
Go to and Stop (3)
Hope this helps you out
Still facing problems. Never be afraid to ask questions.

Sorry for the delay in responding back on this, but thanks for your help! I'm still having trouble getting this to work, despite trying.
It seems there's not much support on the world wide web for this? I wish Macromedia would keep things stable! Annoyingly they've also stopped broadcasting Robot Wars now which this was based on. How is one meant to develop anything when things change so often? grrr *calms down*
Puneet - on: GetProperty("/a",_x)+5 - why is it of factor 5?
I'm also thinking of upgrading my Mac Wallstreet if anyone has anytips i'd be willing to go into a Chat Room or receive a fax. I'll page through my number to anyone.
Cheers for the help

I have been a waiting for you to reply to this Bertie, we are the use . syntax code now too.
what is the scope problemmo you are have? where is you code ??
The problem is SVN was released after I had asked this question. And in the mean time, I opened an email with the title "I love you" and everything was lost.
Change so often? I'm sorry, but it seems every time you sleep, you time travel by 5-15 year intervals. Macromedia was purchased by Adobe more than 7 years ago. You might want to try this new thing called "Flash 11" as it is more flexible than "Macromedia Flash 4"
I look forward to the update from you in years to come Bert
Let me know if you ever manage to solve your problem. I've been eagerly awaiting the appropriate response!
