Flash Character Ref Template by Darqx Flash Character Ref Template by Darqx
Download! Also, i made this in Macromedia Flash 8...so it probably won't work with older versions of Flash

This is the working component of [link]

HERE WE GOOO! =D

Sorry for having made you guys wait. Although i'll have you know that i havent done any of my homeworks because of this so if i fail anything...i'm gonna be blaming it on you. :bucktooth:

Very simple basic tutorial for those that kinda have a clue as to how Flash works. Newbies who dont know the basics please go read up on tuts such as:

- Flash tut for Newbies
- A Flash tut animation
- Learn flash
- F1 in flash

because you will have no idea what the hell i'm talking about lol.

If you're still having problems with it feel free to note me or comment me with your problem or whatever.

This is awesome~ Thank you.

Though I was wondering, are we allowed to add more pages and sections in?

Sure, if you know how then i don't mind, it's supposed to try and be more or less customisable lol.
Although i should make mention that i had to edit the original .fla in Flash CS3, so it doesn't work with Flash MX anymore (so i hope you have something newer than that!).

Hello again ^^; I was wondering if you would know how I can have my text dynamically styled with the scrollbar in Flash? A big problem I'm having with the scrollbar component in Flash is that when I change my font with italics or font size changes, then export my file, the font is all one size and doesn't show bold/italic words. :hmm:

Oh yeah, I have Flash CS5 now, but I'm still working with Flash 6, lol.

Sorry :( When i first made it i'd done it in MX, but i fixed an error in it using CS3 and the furthest backwards compatible format CS3 can save in is Flash 8

NanasFreak Featured By Owner Jan 5, 2011
TTnTT Sad face, I was looking forward to using it. Is it possible you could make a tutorial about the action script and how a person can set it up in Flash themselves? I'd really love to figure that out. Haha. Either way, I think I'll be getting Flash CS5 soon, I'm not sure.
Reply
:icondarqx:
Darqx Featured By Owner Jan 5, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Haha well there's really not that much to it, you just need to know the actionscript for things like the preloader and buttons and you are pretty much good to go :)

NanasFreak Featured By Owner Jan 5, 2011
Well I don't know how to command stuff to go to different pages. :XD: Are the pages on Scenes or justseparate keyframes navigated through via buttons? Also, I don't know how to set up scroll in the Flash and the actionscript for it. ^^;
Reply
:icondarqx:
Darqx Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
That's where the button actionscript comes in :) Although if you are searching for tutorials keep in mind that AS3 and AS2 are rather different!

The pages are usually just separate keyframes navigated through with the buttons - scenes are often hard to work with (imo) and i don't think many people really use them lol.

As for the scroll bar i think there should be a flash component incorporated into flash for one, which means you won't have to worry about any actionscript for it --> [link]
I've never really used it though, so i don't know how well it will work

Ohh it used to work in Flash MX (cos that's what i'd made it in originally), but then when i did a small fix of the file i had Flash CS3 and the lowest save that can go is Flash 8 :( Which is like...one or two version/s above MX |D;

There's nothing stopping you from making your own static character ref in photoshop though.

Nope, Flash files (.fla) need to be opened with Flash.
Photoshop doesn't support that file format.

How do I get rid of your text and replace it with me own (especially on the 'delete this box and text and replace it withyour own' on the preloader.. cant figure it out)
Reply
:icondarqx:
Darqx Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2008  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Oh hey Natasha

You have to double click on what you want to change so it opens up the movie clip it's in, then you can change the text and pics. The text and stuff should be on layers that are quite conveniently named "text" and "pics" (or something to that effect) lol.

Um I made something with this, but the only file format flahs is showing me to save it as for upload is .fla and I think thats just an editing file isnt it? You cant upload an .fla to the internet and people be able to view it without downloading, can you? o.O

Darqx Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2008  Hobbyist Digital Artist
You need to go File > "Export movie" and then pick .swf file format
