    URGENT! Randomly placing objects on Screen.

    Hey, I've got to finish a game before 12am today for Clock Day 2004! I forgot about it, being busy with 5 games and 2 animations. I know alot of action-script, unfortunately, I don't know about randomizing. So here's what i'm doing. I've got a game where the character is viewed from the top, and you haveto run around and collect an object, lets say, coins. I need to make it so the coins come and go randomly. Hope someone can help me, I've been searching on how to do this for ages. Thanks for reading this

    Maybe something like this.... Create a coin movieclip and give it this code.....


    onClipEvent (load) {
    with (_root) {
    movieWidth = 550;
    movieHeight = 400;
    delay = true;
    lastTime = 0;
    wait = 3;
    onClipEvent (enterFrame) {
    with (_root) {
    if (delay) {
    if (Math.floor(getTimer()/1000) == lastTime+1) {
    delay = false;
    } else if (Math.floor(getTimer()/1000) == lastTime+wait) {
    lastTime = Math.floor(getTimer()/1000);
    delay = true;
    _x = Math.random()*movieWidth;
    _y = Math.random()*movieHeight;

    Hope it helps
