    I'm new and need a bit of help....

    I have this flash .fla file that me and a couple of friends have been working on, I need to do 2 things with it but do not know how.

    The flash project we are working on is a flash project that deals with projectile motion. We are flinging a pumpkin from a slingshot and it flys through the air and hits a teacher from our school

    Anyways, we have the code set, we need it to shoot the pumpkin on the press of a button, and we also need it to stop repeatting heh....Like, it has a feild to insert a angle in degrees and an initial velocity and a number of seconds between calculations and it keeps showing the pumpkin fly through the air over and over again hehe....
    I do not understand how to make it go only once and on the press of a button... Can someone please help

    I would create a pumpkin clip, with an enterframe loop inside it. Put the projectile code there (I'll attach a little example fla). Give the clip a velocity variable, and let it do the rest.

    This is really amazing stuff!
    Do you have to be a math guru to be able to code this?
    Or is it learnable?

    kinematics is relatively easy - just a few equations govern all basic kinematic motion (basic meaning any friction is regarded as negligible). i did a quick google search for

    kinematic equation lesson

    and this was the first link that came up:

    which is more than adequate at getting you started. good luck!
