hanging swinging man
Looking for a starting point for how to do the following if possible.
Attached is an fla file that has a number of movieclips which make up the head, torso and limbs of a man - there is also a little rope clip there too.
What I am trying/hoping to do is make all of the clips link up and create the effect of the man hanging from the rope (sounds a lot more morbid than it should!!!hang-swing.zip)
and the other thing that I am trying to do is to make each clip (apart from the head and rope) draggable and when dragged all the linked clips move in accordance - a bit like the ragdoll effect.
Anyone know where to start? I have tried a few things but nothing works quite as it should - so I am hoping that someone here can put me right please?
this is pretty much exactly what i am trying to do...
or maybe someone can just tell me/show me how i can make the head stay in a fixed position on the stage? the functionality of what i want to do is all in this fla - just want it to look as if it is hanging as opposed to freeform?Emokid_Ragdoll_by_voidSkipper.fla
...sorry... was meant to be this .zip file...
in terms of box2d you need to pin the head to the world by revolute joint. if you go to http://www.box2dflash.org/ and download their example, you will find ragdoll demo included, which is few steps away from what are you looking for.
