The foundation of pretty much any game is going to be how the player moves, and…in this case, what I want to do is I want the player to move from left to right,…the X position, based on the mouse position.…So again, I'm going to go ahead and move this player spaceship to the left and…right based on the mouse position. But the first thing I need to do is I'm going…to dynamically add this player to the stage when it's time to play the game,…okay, and I'm going to use code snippets to do this.…
So with the Code Snippets panel opened, I'm going to go down to Add from…Library, because I want to add that player from the library, and I'll just…double-click that code snippet and it adds it into my Actions frame1 is where it…puts it. And let's go ahead and take a look at this code, because currently it…defines a variable, because I need to give this a variable name and make sure…Flash knows that it's a MovieClip.…Okay, so right up here, I'm just going to call this player.…
And where do all my variables go?…
