Here's a preview of a game that is currently in the works. It's in the disguise of a tutorial. A very useful tutorial that covers health bars, enemies and health packs. If you're new to Flash, I recommend that you learn the basics before trying out this tutorial. REPEAT: This is NOT for beginners.

Anywho, before starting, you should download :icongirlflash:'s Platform Game Engine available for free here: [link]

Again, special thanks to :icongirlflash:, and You guys all rock!

Fixed some of the problems that caused syntax errors. If you have any further issues, lemme know!

I put in the actionscript for the enemy for tracker, but it comes up with all these compiler errors.
ferriswheel42 Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2010
The scripts in this tutorial are written in Actionscript 2. If you're getting compiler errors, it means you're trying to use Actionscript 3, the default script for CS3 and up. The easy fix is to go File>Publish Settings, then navigate to the "Flash" tab and change "Actionscript 3.0" to "Actionscript 2.0". Keep in mind that this will affect any AS3 you are currently using in your project.

I'm having the same problem. I am also using ActionScript 2.0 still with difficulty. Help please?

Great tutorial by the way! :D

Yeah I know they're actionscript 2. I put in this script:

onClipEvent(load) {
var speed=1;
onClipEvent(enterFrame) {    
var distx = Math.round(_root.spyro._x - this._x);
var disty = Math.round(_root.spyro._y - this._y);
var theta = Math.atan2(disty, distx);

var deltax = ((Math.cos(theta) * speed));
var deltay = ((Math.sin(theta) * speed));
this._x += deltax;
this._y += deltay;

Then clicked that box that said check syntax and it said that.. D:
It said for most of them that they must appear within an onClipEvent handler, and an unexpected '}', and a syntax error with 'onClipEvent(enterFrame) { '

Thankyou so much for replying to my message though, I really appreciate it. I've been trying to contact other people that are good at flash, but they never reply.
I'm making my own platform game using tutorials, and I hope I can get it done. My flash game :)
I was looking at your tutorial because I've been having trouble finding the right actionscript to make enemies and health bars.
