: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… 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…

I know my tutorial isn't too informative, and my techniques are wildly out of date, but this is how I make my flash comics, and I hope it can help you too if you don't have better techniques already.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


and go to button:

on (release) {

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 FLASH TUTORIAL  Load n Play by Go-Devil-Dante Flash tutorial 4 mamo by Go-Devil-Dante . This one by :iconkcoyote: is also very good Flash Interactive Tutorial by KCoyote. For the epic professional stuff with Action Script 3.0 in Flash and other programs, check out this site

If there is a specific step you are stuck on in my tutorial, please visit my Facebook page at… 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

How did you go from creating your comic on Flash to publishing it on deviantART? Seems I'm stuck figuring it out on my end.

how do you even get flash without selling an organ---
I'm like super broke (creditcardless and jobless since i'm still a student) and i can't even make money from commissions because no one really wants one from me since there are too many great artists in this community

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).

Yes, It Is Possible. :)
