Car game - HELP!!!!

Posted 23 May 2002 - 10:18 AM

I need some help with a car game i'm making.

1. How do i make the cars move when i press a button?

2. How do i make the cars bump into each other instead of just driving over each other?

3. How do i make a person sit besides the driver so he can shoot, so there is one player who is controlling the car and one controlling the cannon?

4. How do i make something happen when a car gets hit?

5. How do i make AI (So the computer can controll one of the cars)?

Wow, i really need some help, i use Flash MX, and as you can see i'm pretty newbie. If you can help me with just one of the questions it would be great :)

Yeah, that is a pretty tall order. Youmigt want to check out the sample chapter here:

FoE Flash 5 Games Studio

If you like it, you might want to pick up the book :)

Er, how does providing you a link to a resource that will answer 80% of your questions make me a "stupid guy, that only tells if there's something you don't know that doesn't help anybody except yourself 'cause then I think I'm cool?"

Go troll around on some other forum :roll:

Sem, I think he is just wanting someone to make a game for him or something, don't be bothered by him.

Kind of off topic: Flash MX has some very cool features for key interaction that flash 5 didn't have. I have been playing around with them for a few days and am impressed.

Cheers Sam

I've been mired with teaching myself PHP/mySQL so I haven't had much time to dive into MX. What kind of improvements have they made on key interaction? Tell me you don't still have to use enterFrame clip events or an Ack engine for continuos key actions. That would be so nice. :biggrin:

No you no longer have to do that, that have added action listener like any good OO programming langage should. They offer a lot of improvements over clipEvents, and they are a lot easier to work with.

Cheers Sam :)
