:: program ::

so i've just wasted an incredible amount of time attempting to learn flash actionscripting...and it didn't even totally work! i did at least get the first 2 button states to work, try scrolling over the squid, he totally changes! wacky!

*edit* just kinda fixed up the clicking, if you "press" the mouse down on him something happens, but if you scroll over him again he reverts back. i'm learnin, just slow!





also! i seem to have disappeared from the blogosphere for the moment!

i got a job working on a segment for conan o brien [and the internets] called pale force starring jim gaffigan...oh and conan...

it was enough work for me to quit ac! but i still have another week and a half left so right now i'm working 2 jobs...and tonight is testiment to the fact that my misguided attention span may give me trouble, since i've apparently been working with actionscripting for the last 4 hours instead of what i'm SUPPOSED to be doing...

That's awesome! Jim Gaffigan and Conan are an unbeatable combination.

And I love the squid guy, he's super cute, glad to see another entry from you.

yo dude, tis good! try moving your mouse over his tentacles side to side slowly. does he start to hiccup or seizure? a good habit to get into is creating hit states. in your squid movie clip make a new layer and create a generic graphic symbol (a circle works for now, just make sure it's a symbol). place the symbol over/under your cephalopod and set it's alpha to 0%. When you mouse over him again the rollOver will activate when it hit's the alpha 0% shape too. you can customize the shape to add on as much/little you want to the active hit area for your movie clips. This will prevent any unintentional hiccoughage!

just being a nit picky net nerd. carry on with justice!

Dude, I used to know how to do this. It's been a white. I'll send you some links later when I get home on button states.

- Mel!

P.S. Did I ever send you to this flash site? http://www.dootdootgarden.com/ I bet I did.

Nice squid, Smo.

We should have Lady Bronze lower our heros into a tank full of those suckers.
