This is how I did the buttons in McDiddy's 2:


[code:1]
_root.clicker5.onRelease = function(){ gotoAndPlay( "Scene6", "explosion" ); }
[/code:1]


clicker5 is the <Instance Name> of my button.
Scene6 is the name of the scene the button goes to.
explosion is the name of the frame the button goes to.

So when you click clicker5, the movie plays from the "explosion" frame in Scene6.


If you want something to move (an arm) make it its own object and put it on its own layer and give it a motion tween.

To make the movie stop, add this to the actions for the frame:

[code:1]stop();[/code:1]

you can make a button move by putting a movie clip on one of the frames in it.
I'm making a stick figure drawing tutorial with those buttons.







That sounds REALLY stupid now. Teaching people to draw stick figures.



3d-ish gradiented stick figures that are NOT drawn with the brush tool.

Easy Peasy =D.

Ok first make a Play thingy , a box that says play. High light it with the Selection Tool , the right click and click "Convert To Symbol" Name it Play Button , and choose the "Button" Option from under the name of the symbol. Once your done that , if you test your movie , you can move your mouse on it , you can click it , but nothing will happen. First you need to click on the frame with the play button and type ( In the action script place) "GotoAndStop(frame number with the play button here)". Then once your done that , click on the button , and type in this "GotoAndPlay(The Frame Where The Animation Starts). Once your done that it should work.
If you want the button to look cooler , edit the Play Button , the where the timeline would be , press F6 and erase the colour(not the text) and choose another colour , then press F6 again and delete the colour ( not the text) and double click on the stage. THen when you test it out , when you move the mouse over the button , it will change into a different colour that you chose =) Have fun!
My fingers hurt =(
