:star: Update :star: :iconeledora: kindly pointed out that there is an easier script for the buttons prevFrame(); and nextFrame(); instead of having to change all the frame numbers. Also, for even more time saving scripts, please read the comment [link] by :iconnch85:

Here is an extended version of the Flash tutorial that I demoed during my :iconkintoki-con: panel :D This is not the panel itself, but I will be sharing that in my journal tomorrow. Thank you all who attended Kintoki con :hug: and my panel even though I totally messed up. ^^;

I have prepared all the images used in this tutorial for download so that you guys can have materials to practice with. You can download everything here [link]

I know my tutorial isn't too informative, and my techniques are wildly out of date, but this is how I make my flash comics, and I hope it can help you too if you don't have better techniques already.

The action scripts used in the tutorial are Stop:

Stop();

and go to button:

on (release) {
gotoAndPlay(NUMBER);
}

If you want to learn how to make a customized loading page, there is no better tutorial than :icongo-devil-dante:'s, I learned most of my stuff from her 2 tutorials . This one by :iconkcoyote: is also very good . For the epic professional stuff with Action Script 3.0 in Flash and other programs, check out this site [link]

If there is a specific step you are stuck on in my tutorial, please visit my Facebook page at [link] where you can comment on the specific page of the tutorial so it's easier for me and others to help you.

I hope it helps! :D

Whenever I put the script in for the button, I get this:

"**Error** Scene=Scene 1, layer=Layer 2, frame=4:Line 1: Mouse events are permitted only for button instances
    on (release) {

Total ActionScript Errors: 1      Reported Errors: 1"

what happened? o.e

Is it possible to write a novel using the same method? I mean, it's like a visual novel, but it's read like an ACTUAL novel. Rather than play a game--or some sort of dating simulation, it's pretty much reading a chapter of an overall story, only with background images and a soundtrack of its own (if possible).

This is very useful! But I'm having some difficulties with it. When I select my read button, the action window tells me that actions cannot be applied to the current selection. I'm sure I followed everything correctly, though I'm working in Flash CS6. Can you tell me where the problem lies? Thanks in advance!

It's pretty much the same. The interface is a little different. I used macromedia flash, so it's a little different for me. But most of the basic things are, like I said, pretty much the same.

I did everything, it's success, but at the fade part it just went in a fast flash instead of fading... I already insert the motion, and I don't know what's wrong with it.. I'm stuck here TT^TT

Hello. I know this is a late reply, but I have the same problem as you described, and I was wondering if you could tell me how you managed to fix it. :)

I have found the likely solution for slowing down the animation to Yuumei's speed, if you haven't found that yourself yet. At the beginning, when she sets the size of her page, you can also see that her frame rate is 12 fps. For me the standard was 24 fps, so I had to change it to slow it down. Hope that helps!

:iconallouchsukeshi:
AllouchSukeshi Featured By Owner Jul 15, 2014  Student Digital Artist
wow, it's been a long time since i did it
I think I just restart the whole thing and repeat the steps slower, as i re-check as well.

I think the fps affects it tho.
