    How do u create play and replay buttons

    play button code (put this on the button):
    Code:
    on (release) {
    play;
    }
    replay button (goes on the replay button):
    Code:
    on (release) {
    gotoAndPlay(2);
    }
    note: the replay code could also be used as a PLAY button to gotoAndPlay(4); for example if you have frames 2 and 3 filled with menus, and you want it to jump to frame 4 and then start playing when you click play...

    How do you make like transparent things (glasses where you can see through)

    if you are doing a colour fill, go to the colour mixer tab (default on right side of screen at top of sidebar thing) and there is a little number that says alpha... change it from 100 to 50 and your colour will become half transparent, change it to 0 and your colour becomes invisible

    if you have a movieclip, graphic or button that you want to make transparent, go to the properties tab (default at the top of the bottom toolbar thing) and with your object selected, click on the dropdown menu that says colour and select alpha, then change the number the same as with a colour fill...

    How do you create someone walking?

    i suggest you look at some tutorials for walk cycles, a good one is here or here
    walking is a hard subject to learn, teach or master, so be patient...

    ok... i think that your problem is that you actually have several objects selected, rather than just your button... to fix this, click somewhere on the empty stage and nothing should be selected anymore... then just click on your button and open the actions panel...

    and there it is... just copy and paste the code in and it should work, but make sure that you actually have more than one frame in your movie, or nothing will happen when you click the button... :P

    no... getting that message means that the object(s) that you have currently selected cannot do anything with actionscript that you put on them, so it doesn't let you put any actionscript on them...

    using actionscript 3.0 shouldn't make any difference at all with that...

    AS3 may not allow Action script to be placed in buttons/movieclips.
    Try this code placed in frame1:
    Code:
    var startplay=false;
    var speed=3;
    play_btn.onRelease=function(){
    stickman.gotoAndStop(2);	
    startplay=true;
    }
    stickman.onEnterFrame=function(){
    if(startplay)stickman._x+=speed;
    if(stickman._x>550)stickman._x=50;
    }
    stop_btn.onRelease=function(){
    startplay=false;
    stickman.gotoAndStop(1);	
    }
    stop();
    You can also see the modified FLA [F8] attached in which the above code is used. Hope this works in your version of Flash.

    First you have to insert a new symbol in place of the stickman. For this you open the library, right click on stickmanm/stickman. click edit and then draw a new object on the stage in place of the old figure.
