(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.
Basically you need to learn more about Actionscript. If you want, I could give you some advice and help. Feel free to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
That's exactly what I need to do. Thanks.
