Okay, so I need some help or tutorial about making a point and click game in Flash CS4..I'm a pro in drawing but noob in working with Flash ..xP but if you help me I will see what can I do in return for you, and sign your name in the game because it's going to be uploaded to NG ..I know some basics but here is some list of things I want to know beside the ordinary tutorial :

1. Like I said it's a point and click ( horror ) game and I would like to do something like drop down list menu, like when you click on some object the list is shown up next to the object with multiple options..

2. How to add sound when the certain move or click on some object is made.

3. How to make descriptions show when you click on some object.

4. Do I need to draw a cursor for the game????

I hope my questions aren't too hard to answer and that someone will be kind to answer them.. Ask if you want something in return that I can give you or help you and tell me if you want your name in the game

Hey Blind-Dog I can try to give you some help.

1. Her you could use a droplist or just a plain sprite with the options(like monkey island 3).

2. Currently not worked so mutch with sound, but should not be the biggest problem. Just follow a tutorial like this (http://www.schoolofflash.com/blog/2008/03/tutorial-using-sound-in-actionscript-3/).

3. Here it depends on how mutch information the object has and where you want to store it. (XML, write it in the code, textfile..).

4. Don't need to make a custom cursor, but it would not hurt to add it in the game.

Sorry for the short answer, but it would be alot of codeposting to answer it all. Send me a PM if you want to discuss it more.

Good luck with the game:)
