Under rating threshold (show) @powerownage just continue with the tutorial, your issue is addressed in a later page. @Jonthebloxer go to the library, double click the 'Ship' icon, delete the sprite and draw/insert whatever you want instead.

Under rating threshold (show) Hey everyone! If anyone here wants to convert AS2 code to AS3 I set up a quick guide on how to do it. This uses old code that you wont want in newer projects but the site I set up will explain how to use it! http://codingflashfast.webs.com/ This should help everyone who needs this in AS3.

Under rating threshold (show) If you have an error it is most likely because you have misspelt a word or forgotten a ";". Keep saving your work before you test and make sure it is all in the same folder and correctly named!

Under rating threshold (show) I'm stuck on page 9. For some reason, everything works fine when I exclude "missile._x =_x + 50; missile._y = _y + 2;", but when I include that portion of the code, my character won't move and my missiles won't fire.

Under rating threshold (show) I Have a huge problem. My flash thinks that 1 is way offscreen.. so instead of removing the missiles at _x 700 I have to type 1400. That fixes my problem here, but in the next tutorial when in generates the enemys I can't keep the enemys on stage with this code.. _y = Math.random()*400 + 50; Any ideas why this happens?

Under rating threshold (show) @shaggypig9 I had that problem first too, but I solved it, just try and change the X and Y numbers (page 7 on the tutorial). I changed it to X + 78 and Y + 22: if( Key.isDown(Key.SPACE) ) { var missile = _root.attachMovie( "Missile" , "Missile" + _root.getNextHighestDepth() , _root.getNextHighestDepth() ); missile._x = _x + 78; missile._y = _y + 22; } Hope this helps

Under rating threshold (show) im using Adobe Flash CS5.5 Pro i cant seem to make the missiles appear and disappear since i cant make them appear i tried drag the missile movieclip to the stage and edited its onEnterFrame code particularly the condition when spacebar is pressed just to see if the condition is working i set the speed to 0 if the spacebar is pressed so when i press the spacebar the missile should stop and it did.. so i think the problem is somehow the function that attachmovie and removemovieclip is not firing.. is it because im using a CS5.5?

Under rating threshold (show) Thanks @Derek3803, but I still can't. Have both layers in the same order as on the screen example. I can select it, select the color and line tool but can't draw. It's probably something dumb that I just don't know. Had a step drive me crazy cause it was missing the instruction to select the .fla before trying "Insert>" since it only appears when the .fla is selected.

Under rating threshold (show) SHEEPNESS probably you already figured out, nut you must put "if" statements inside "on" events, such as "onEnterFrame", otherwise it won't work... bothered me for almost 15 min as well...

Under rating threshold (show) I find a slightly better effect out of the missiles by having an acceleration, I set speed to 0 instead of 10, then did this when moving the missiles: _x += speed; speed += 1; // try changing the speed that speed increases for a different effect.

Under rating threshold (show) my missiles move with the background. in other words, I have them firing out of the ship where I want, they move at the rate I want, but if I hold the space bar down their point of origin moves further and further away. If I move the ship back and fire, the missiles will appear far in front of the ship. HELP!

Under rating threshold (show) I cannot get the missile to spawn. If I change the linkage identifier and instance name to "ship" I can fire a ship out of my ship, but when it is set to "missile", there is no missile. The properties for the missile are set to 'Export in Frame 1' and if I add a missile manually to the scene, it shows up when I test the movie, and it moves across the screen properly. In the library object the missile shows up as a movie. I am not getting any syntax errors on any .as programs. Any ideas?

Under rating threshold (show) okay, i have my missile working relatively and i am now trying to make things constantly fly out of the back of my ship. Nyanship is my ship's symbol name. The Mexicanflag class is the same as the missile except speed = -20; if( symbol NYANShip is on stage ) { var Mexicanflag = _root.attachMovie( "Mexicanflag" , "Mexicanflag" + _root.getNextHighestDepth() , _root.getNextHighestDepth() ); Mexicanflag._x = _x - 100; Mexicanflag._y = _y - 2; } Would this work?
