Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Thread: Random movement question

  1. #1

    Random movement question

    Hey i have this code i understand somewhat

    PHP Code:
    MovieClip.prototype.moveMe = function(beginendspeed) {
        if (
    this._x<=end) {
    this._x += speed;
        } else {
    this._x begin;
    this._y Math.random()*(64.5-0.5)+5;
    and the movieClip

    PHP Code:
    onClipEvent (load) {
    this._y Math.random()*(64.5-0.5)-5;
    begin1 = (- (this._width 2))
    end1 = (Stage.width + (this._width 2))
    speed1 Math.round (((Math.random() * 4) + 1))
    onClipEvent (enterFrame) {
    this.moveMe (begin1end1speed1)

    this moves along the X axis at a random speed / y axis

    now how do invert it to make it go random on the Y axis with the stage width being 445y , 0y and 441x, 750x man all this math/coding fries my brain!!

    Well if its moving on the _x and having the _y random, then just switch the _x's and the _y's in the scripts.

    That way the _y will be moving and the _x will be random.
