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.

Cheers,

Thread: Duplicate movieclip questions

  1. #1

    Duplicate movieclip questions

    Helllo,

    I'm a new learner to actionscript, before i just copy and pasted code, wich wasn't very helpfull. now i'm kinda experimenting with actionscript but written out of mind.

    i made a rocket wich follows your mouse, with a neat trail that also follows your mouse.

    that works fine, but now i want a row of enemies to come out of the left of the screen.
    what do i add to make the enemies duplicated? if i add duplicate movieclip the enemies will come. but the rocket won't follow the mouse and the trail won't work.

    another question: how do i make it so a movieclip is being duplicated every 5 seconds or so? not on every frame?

    thanks in advance , file is attached

    looks like wrong file but, it seems enemys you are trying to createare the same movieclip as the player itself, and since you have most probably put AS in the mc instead of frame....the code is colliding with eachother. From now on, try to put all you code on the timeline, and preferably at one place.

    Also to set gap use setInterval

    intervalID=setInterval(function_name,time in between executions)

    and the set interval, should it be something like this?:

    ball=setInterval(function_ball,4)
