    By the way, we're looking for moderators of each section. So if you're interested then let me know.

    Thanks!

    PS now having Flash5 I think that it will be possible to share smart clips for collision detection score keepers and such... You can include this on the board. seccond thing is your board deals with F5 or F4 ? cuz you might want a separate group for them

    Thanks Sci - just wanted to make it clear that the Rabbit game is NOT mine......I just added it to the favourite sections because I kind of liked it.

    You're right that Smartclips will become a important item to share/trade and we'll add sections to deal with that when it starts happening.

    The forum is actually for both Flash 4 AND Flash 5 - I just wanted to have a place where people interested in Flash games could hang out. Whether you enjoying playing, designing, programming or just learning about game techniques I hope to have something for everybody.

    Thanks for dropping by at the site, I look forward to seeing you (and other Flashkit names) there in the future.

    Cheers.

    Hi Shamway,

    A smart clip is a movie clip with parameters that can be changed. This allows you to create a piece of code and re-use it in several movies or even share it with other people - you could create pop-up menus, scroll-boxes etc.

    Any movie clip that you want to reuse in a different way without changing the scripts would be a good smart clip.

    ....which acutally can be done with F4 the idea is not that new. for example in my games which are mostly moving heroes arround. I use mc wich takes care of the controls. Frame one is reserved for setup variables like hero name, step, directions of move and so on. I have another Mc which holds score, or a mc which handles data like look up tables inported from a txt files and so on. i constaly reuse old mc for example I have one Main.fla wich contains all of my MC. So each project is acutaly a compilation of old MC just copy and paste. he he he
