Stop sound from playing continuosly on keyisdown   (64 Views)
Hi people, got a problem any insights, tutorials online or clues gratefully received. I'm using a KeyIsDown action to trigger a sound. This works fine, however if the key is pressed down continuously it starts the sound playing again and again. What I need is somekind of control that detects the keydown, triggers the sound but then doesn't keep re-starting the the sound whilst the key is depressed. Is there an action in the sound commands that detects to see if a sound is playing which I can use - like the old "soundIsBusy" command in lingo many
to play a movie when something was dragged and dropped in the right place   (56 Views)
I am a beginer in Action script. I am working on an interactive banner and I came to a problem I can't resolve. It's a kind of drag and drop little game. I need to play a movie clip after something is dropped in the right place. I think I need to add Event Listener to a movieclip and create a function with a conditional, but I'm getting it wrong. Could anyone help me please
Call to main timeline, after external video or audio is done playing?   (71 Views)
I am curious if there is a way to call back to the main timeline using AS3 after a video clip or audio clip that is being loaded externally, is done playing For instance: you get to a page with a video on it, but when the video is done playing, instead of just sitting there, it automatically takes you to a new page (framelabel). Is this possible And if so how does it work

nextFrame playhead stops all Movieclips?   (58 Views)
I'm learning to code its the same structures we see in many online tutorials obviously, what is bugging me is during up and down i have the ship perform some roll action (rtype knock off)this.nextFrame & this.prevFrame seem to cause the playheads to stop in the engine/thrust movieclip; even though its timeline, (i thought), was independent. my solution was make ourBody inside next/prev frames to just ourBody and leave the engine+thrust animation movieclips out of that process.... dur...... i can see advantages to having control over the engine/body separately but feels like a bit of a band-aid, should I be thinking more in terms of flashes default art ability to have a movieclip play regardless of parent timelines as the "unusual" logic here
Flash Flash CS4, AS3 - addChild after a MovieClip has played problem   (62 Views)
In my .fla file, in frame 1 on the main timeline, I have a Button symbol in the display list. When that button is clicked, a function removes it from the display list, then adds a MovieClip (created in the library & exported for AS3) to the display list, then plays the MovieClip. Within that MovieClip, on the last frame is the stop(); function. The MovieClip is an animation of a transition from one room to another. Everything works ok up to this point. After the MovieClip is done playing, I need to add more whatevers to the display list (such as a button to transition back to the previous room). The problem is I don't know how to tell ActionScript to wait till the MovieClip has played before adding to the display list. When trying to get it to do so, it just skips to the last frame of the MovieClip, not playing the animation. Please help. Code: import flash.display.MovieClip; import flash.display.SimpleButton; import; //----------------------------------------------------------- //||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||| //----------------------------------------------------------- // Background images: var background_01:Background_01 = new Background_01; = "background_01"; var section_01bright:Section_01bright = new Section_01bright; = "section_01bright"; var section_02bright:Section_02bright = new Section_02bright; = "section_02bright"; // -------------------------------------------------- // The Buttons: var btn_goRight_01:Btn_GoRight_01 = new Btn_GoRight_01; = "btn_goRight_01"; btn_goRight_01.x = 736; btn_goRight_01.y = 300; var btn_goLeft_01:Btn_GoLeft_01 = new Btn_GoLeft_01; = "btn_goLeft_01"; btn_goLeft_01.x = 63; btn_goLeft_01.y = 300; // ------------------------------------------------- // The MovieClip: var sectionChange_1to2:SectionChange_1to2 = new SectionChange_1to2; //----------------------------------------------------------- //||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||| //----------------------------------------------------------- // Display list: addChild(background_01); background_01.addChild(section_01bright); section_01bright.addChild(btn_goRight_01); //----------------------------------------------------------- //||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||| //----------------------------------------------------------- // Event listener and function: btn_goRight_01.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, changeToSection2); function changeToSection2(event:MouseEvent):void { section_01bright.removeChild(btn_goRight_01); background_01.removeChild(section_01bright); background_01.addChild(sectionChange_1to2);; if (sectionChange_1to2.currentFrame == 45) { background_01.removeChild(sectionChange_1to2); background_01.addChild(section_02bright); section_02bright.addChild(btn_goLeft_01); } }

loaded local video stops play after a few seconds   (61 Views)
, when I use the following function in my doc class to launch a local video, the video "freezes" after a few seconds. This happens no matter what video I am trying to play. Code: private function startVideo(e:MouseEvent):void { var nc:NetConnection = new NetConnection(); nc.connect(null); var ns:NetStream = new NetStream(nc); ns.addEventListener(AsyncErrorEvent.ASYNC_ERROR, asyncErrorHandler); ns.client = this;"1280 x 800 Version_1.mp4"); function asyncErrorHandler(e:AsyncErrorEvent):void { trace(e.text); } var vid:Video = new Video(); vid.attachNetStream(ns); vid.width = 1280; vid.height = 800; vid.x = 1024; vid.y = 0; addChild(vid); } Any reason why this might be happening Thankyou.
flash player 10 debugger/browser problems... need some insights   (79 Views)
hi I have been working with flash for quite sometime. I have been having issues with the debugger a lot lately. The debugger throws a popup with the error content on firefox which hangs up the browser causing the flash plugin to crash. This happens mostly in the following cases. There is a load on the server and then the server turns 500 or something like that then my flash trying to fetch an xml through db query doesnt get it. My flash is loading and in between the page is refreshed. (In this case i get "Load never completed" error) Also gets xml markup language error sometimes. And I do not know WHY this ONE COMES "#2000:No active security content", or How to fix this I use as3 to code. At first i thought disabling firebug and flash console might help but didnt I keep thinking maybe IOError handler should fix this but it still throws me the dialogue box on firefox Or does the "try catch error" should be used. How do i stop that popup from coming up and hanging firefox. Please provide some insights... Thank you in advance
Sound played on keyboard event?   (57 Views)
I am a complete beginner to ActionScript, so please excuse my not knowing anything. ^^; I'm creating kind of a pseudo RPG menu, and I just have the animation go to a different frame when you press an arrow key, backspace, or enter. I also have a couple of sound effects I wanted to play depending on what you press, but I am having no luck at all getting it to work, and everywhere I look online has very different instructions on how to go about it. Here's what I have just without any sound at all: Code: stop(); stage.addEventListener(KeyboardEvent.KEY_DOWN, function(evt) { switch (evt.keyCode) { case Keyboard.LEFT: gotoAndStop(1); break; case Keyboard.RIGHT: gotoAndStop(1); break; case Keyboard.UP: gotoAndStop(8); break; case Keyboard.DOWN: gotoAndStop(2); break; case Keyboard.BACKSPACE: gotoAndStop(1); break; case Keyboard.ENTER: gotoAndStop(9); break; } }); And then just different numbers based on what frame I'm on. As I said, I don't really know what I'm doing; a lot of this code was given to me. :/ So I know it's a lot to ask, but if I could get a very detailed explanation of what to do, I'd really appreciate it. If the sound could play before it switches frames, that would be best.

Flash touch events slowing display in air android   (70 Views)
I'm still having some problems understanding these touch events...or maybe something else..can anyone enlighten me as to what i'm doing wrong in this code Only left as1&2 to go to 3 recently so I'm sure I have bad habits and misconceptions but... In the IDE i have a button on the stage called: "touchBtn" and a textfield called "timer" the problem i have is that if i touch the button fast / lots, the display rate really slows down...I know this is down to something I'm doing totally wrong but not sure what... all help and ridicule appreciated. tinyflea package { import flash.display.MovieClip; import; import; import flash.utils.*; public class dotty extends MovieClip { public function dotty() { touchBtn.addEventListener(TouchEvent.TOUCH_BEGIN, TouchBegin); touchBtn.addEventListener(TouchEvent.TOUCH_END, TouchEnd); var theTime:int = 0; var Ypos:int=0; function TouchBegin(event:TouchEvent):void{ Ypos=mouseY; } function TouchEnd(event:TouchEvent):void{ Ypos=mouseY; } addEventListener(Event.ENTER_FRAME,myFunction); function myFunction(event:Event) { theTime=getTimer(); timer.text=String(theTime); } } } }
How to display objects that reside inside an array   (66 Views)
How can I use arrays and some how display my objects accordingly based on my code below Is that even possible What I have here are three buttons that when clicked a new clip is added to the stage with a predefined position which means that when button1 is clicked the MovieClip will be added at the very top and when button2 is clicked the MovieClip will be added at second and when button3 is clicked the clip will be added at the very bottom, but what I would like to do is to be able to dynamically position these objects based on how many clips exist, in other words if button3 is clicked first, I want the clip to be positioned at the very top and if later button1 is clicked the clip is positioned Accordantly (at second place). I know this may be simple, in fact I could probably use a few IF statements but I know the code would look ugly (yes, even more) and I may have add more buttons later. What I would be awesome is to some-how use arrays or something that makes more sense to hold the MovieClips and then display them accordingly.
Flash Flash plays on local PC, but not on remote server   (70 Views)
I am having no success playing a short FLV through a SWF on my hosted web site. The video plays without problem on my local PC. This problem only occurs with SWF and HTML created with Flash CS5. With Flash CS3 the problem does not occur. The only difference I see between CS5 and CS3 files is this: There is a file called AC_RunActiveContent.js created with the SWF and HTML through CS3. But that file does not exist with the SWF and HTML created through CS5. Since the video plays on my local PC, I assume that AC_RunActiveContent.js is not required for newest version of Flash player. My web host provider assures me that MIME settings are correct and Window 2005 is the operating system. I am at my wits end trying to determine the cause and fix for this problem. Please give me some advice for resolution. Thank you.
Maximum Limit on displayed items?   (65 Views)
I just noticed that the last thing I added won't show up, unless I add it earlier to the display list. But then the last thing in my display list no longer appears. Is there a maximum # of items that can be displayed If so, where can I find that documentation I'm not finding anything via Google. If not, would anyone have any suggestion why things are disappearing in this way I have about 100 (give or take) items being displayed.
Flash swf parent player and loader   (62 Views)
Id like some help creating a file that will load separate SWF files that I have created for my website. So far I have created the first SWF file which includes an animated intro, functions (mainly enlarge thumbnail images and buttons for more info), and an outro (again animated out of stage). What Id like to create is a parent file that loads SWF1, then when its loaded SWF2 is loaded ready to be told to play via a next button or after a period of time the SWF file is automatically loaded (which would require the outro of SWF1 to be played then the intro of SWF2 following straight after. Ive had little experience with action script, the last time I used tried this was in AS2 and I found that difficult enough but AS3 has me stumped (though its becoming more familiar)
