I’m trying to make an object follow another one when it hits it. (The moving object is called “hook”)
The Hook has an animation that allows it to move towards the other object.
I tried this in the object’s actions:
The problem here is that the object only goes to the initial location of the hook, and doesn’t change it’s position depending on the hook’s location. How do I fix this?
I’m guessing it stops following because the hook moved too far and the two were no longer touching.
`var following = false;
following = true;

Yes, that would be exactly what’s causing it.
And you are not going to get the object to follow that hook as it animates, because Flash does not expose details on where that hook is (it’s a frame-based animation).

> Thanks for the reply. I guess you’re right. I’m gonna have to use XY coordinates to make the hook move in complex directions. :P
