(HELP) Looking for advice to start me off (Point and click character movement)
Hi, (Using Flash 8)
I'm trying to take the first baby steps to make a character(collection of movie clips) walk around the screen following preset routes (motion paths?) like in a point and click adventure.
I want the character to move to the relevant point on the motion path when the mouse is clicked at corresponding point on the screen.
I made a demo of what I want to achieve here (link).
My action scripting skills are limited.
I have a feeling I need to use the onClick command (???).
I have no idea how to:
1) Keep track of the character's position on the motion path
2) Control the speed of the character's movement from a to b
3) Link the cursor's co-ordinates on screen to a point on a motion path
4) Interrupt the character's current movement when a new click command is given (for later!)
Any advice on where to look to get started would be most welcome.
