    Guess it could be done!
    You would have to have some constantly looping control movie clip, checking the value of the input text box, and then have the movie clip reacting accordingly.

    well, suppose your input text box has an instance name of "action"
    on your movie clip that you want to respond:

    Code:
    onClipEvent(enterFrame) {
       if (_root.action.text.toLowerCase() == "walk") {
          gotoAndPlay("walk");
          _root.action.text = "";
       }else{
          if (_root.action.text.toLowerCase() == "jump") {
              gotoAndPlay("jump"); 
               _root.action.text = ""
          }
    }
    this would kinda work, i guess.. All theory.. I added the _root.action.text="" , otherwise, everyframe pass the MC would go back to the specified frame label without completing the animation..

    i'm sure somebody will come along with some cleaner code, but this should at least help in getting started..

    good luck

    hmm i tested this to work like making a password and it seems to work well. I'm thinking i'll keep at the password thing until i come up with errors then i'll try your way.

    my problem is getting him to move a direction. See i'm trying to get the hero to do everything by itself, but you can help out by telling it some stuff to do.

    i'm also wondering how i can make him say something if he doesn't recognize what u typed in.

    i suppose after all of the other ifs and elses to recognize certain words you could have the last else goto and play a parked movie clip that has the hero speaking...the way im thinking of it it would work, but could we see what youre trying to do?
