Semi-N00b friendly. BASIC flash drawing knowledge required.
If you're starting a new document in Adobe Flash CS3, make sure you choose ActionScript 2.0

It seems like ppl on DA are very fond of dressup games... ppl have asked me how to make it and requested tutorials, so here it is. It took me about 2 days to make... not too bad... I hope I make sense XD This is how I make my dressup games. Remember there are many ways to create dressup games, this is just my way. I tried to go over some of the stuff that other dressup tutorials on DA didn't go over so this one won't be a complete duplicate of other tutorials. I hope you'll learn something new and useful from this. Leave a comment if you have a question, I might reply :XD: (kuz I'm lazy)

I may make some tutorials on composing, FL studio, coloring, and animating.... kuz over the years I've gotten numerous requests on those... so I'll see :XD:

one question, how do you upload the animation or dressup game (made with macromedia flash 8) to deviantart? do you have to click save and compact or something? :?

I made sure I was selecting the right thing and copied and pasted the script and it won't work. For some reason it doesn't like the { or } in the scripts and tells me they are extra characters.

Hnng, sorry for bugging, but when you are making the 'previous' and 'next' arrows, do you create this on a layer within the stage (in my case of eyes), or do you go back to the main overview of frames and such and make the buttons there? I just can't seem to get this right. QWQ"

I LOVE this tutorial! Unlike others, it's straightforward and quick, yet easy to follow. I'm a beginner and I played around flash to see where all the controls were to do this, and even I got it! Thank you so much!

Just a question, can I draw each thing apart in Photoshop and save it in separate files and make it into a game in Flash or is it better to draw in Flash only? If it's possible, as what should I save them?

Um this is really neat, regarding actually drawing the person,hair and such. Is there a program for that? Free or buy? Or can you just draw the clothes,hair,etc seperate/ in real life on paper? Or...is the program the only way. :3 nice tutorial.

I do it but when I pase the code it comes error:
1087: Syntax error: extra characters found after end of program.

Do you know why?
I change to ActionScript 2.0 so it's should be okay but it's not~

powerswithin Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2012   General Artist
Hmmm that usually means that there's extra spaces or enter characters at the end of the code... Best way to go about it is check the end of all your MCs that have actionscript in the and make sure that none of them have characters at the end of the codes that shouldn't be there =]

You mean the programming or the drawing?
Programming-wise it's just a separate frame with a stop(); code on it. The Start button goes to the next frame w/ the menu =]

well i meant both of them, like the drawing must be in a top layer whit that code or.. ?
Reply
:iconpowerswithin:
powerswithin Featured By Owner May 24, 2012   General Artist
The drawing is in its own layer. The "start" button is a button object. The nextFrame(); code is attached to the button object so that when clicked, it goes to the next frame =] I'll be happy to go into more details if you've more questions.

Got an ulterior motive for faving this, besides that I like it! - I've done a few dressups, and quite a few people have asked me about relevant tutorials. This is about as relevant as it gets!
