Drag & Drop Code

May 8, 2010 at 6:43 pm (Kazu.tv)

ActionScript 2.0

on (press) {
startDrag(this, true);
on (release) {

on (press) {startDrag(this, true);}on (release) {stopDrag();}


Used this code to make an online  jigsaw game. The only problem is that it seems to have broken the custom cursor agian as they both use similar code. Will try to find a way around it

A possible fix may be found at this address, but the code looks quite complicated.


By using the custom cursor code from this site, the problem with the disappearing cursor is fixed.

New Code for Custom Cursor

onClipEvent (load) {
onClipEvent (mouseMove) {
_x = _parent._xmouse;
_y = _parent._ymouse;

Flash Full Screen Browser Tutorial

May 4, 2010 at 9:52 am (Kazu.tv)


Following this tutorial to put in a green felt background to the website. It fits in more with the style of the website than the white default background. The screen may have too much felt then, maybe a solid colour would suit it more. Will try both to see which looks best

Custom Cursor Tutorial: http://www.tutorialized.com/view/tutorial/Flash-Custom-Cursor/54348

I decided to make a custom cursor to fit in with the style of my website, this would be more appealing to children than the default arrow. The cursor is a flower, to fit the garden theme.
