I can't figure this out at all. I don't know the first thing to it. Click here: http://www.f5b.my100megs.com/shipgame.swf to get an idea of what I mean. Arrow keys are move, and space is fire. I want the ship to bounce off the wall.

you just need left right up and down boundaries.

{if (this._x<10) {this._x=11; xspeed*=-0.8;}

try attaching that to the ship. If you like the behavior, just set up the other three boundaries.

an alternative would be to have big invisible overlapping rectangles to hitTest against, if you like that sort of thing.

Just trying to save a sinking thread!
