I'm extremely new to Actionscript and am trying to make a basic bouncing ball game like the one in the DevNote Tutorial 'Intro to Flash Game Programming' on Youtube

However, I want the ball to enter the stage at the beginning of the game.

I would also like to add another dynamic text field that counts the rounds of the game (i.e. when a person drops the ball the first time, the Rounds counter goes to 1 when the drop it a second time it goes to 2 etc.) and at the end of the third round I want the game to end.

If anyone could post some script that would do what i have outlined above I would be very appreciative!

thanks in advance!

Why don't you have a go yourself and then ask us for help. The pros and forum users are not here to do it for you. That's what tutorials are for.

This is the code I'd use. on stage I would have text field with instance name "rounds_txt" and a button with a instance name "add_btn" when the ball falls it should be a hittest with the area below the stage or a comparison between the ball position on y and stage height but for example I just use a button that would be that event ingame.

1st I create a variabile storing my round number,
Then I created the EventListener for the button, you should use
addEventListener(Event.ENTER_FRAME, onEnterFrame);
function onEnterFrame (e:Event) :void {
if (ball.y >= stage.y){
ball.x = 100 //the x position where the ball should start to avoid adding more rounds than one per fall
ball.y = 100 //the y position where the ball should start
rounds_num += 1
if (rounds_num <= 3){
trace("3");
}
}
In the game :P
and at the end there is a EnterFrame Event which puts our variabile that stores the round number in the text bux for the user to see it :P

import flash.events.MouseEvent;
import flash.events.Event;

var rounds_num:Number = 0

add_btn.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, oneup)
function oneup(e:MouseEvent) :void {
rounds_num += 1 //Could use rounds_num = rounds_num + 1 also
if (rounds_num >= 3){ //>= means 3 or more, == would be exactly 3
trace("3");
}
}

addEventListener(Event.ENTER_FRAME, onEnterFrame);
function onEnterFrame (e:Event) :void {
rounds_txt.text = String(rounds_num);

}

Hope I was helpful :)

And Ben I actually helped him :PP I get practice, cause I'm new to AS and really need it and I get posts so I will be able to add links xD
Anyways if you're good with AS3 and you feel like helping me out please check showthread.php3?t=261476

If you want to make it more realistic you should add gravity & x&y velocity

thanks so much for the code! I'm not sure if it will work with the code i've already put in though... this is what i had so far:

package
{
import flash.display.MovieClip
import flash.text.TextField
import flash.events.Event
import flash.events.MouseEvent

public class DocumentMain extends MovieClip
{
public const GRAVITY:Number = 2;
public const BOUNCE_FACTOR:Number = 0.8;
public const HIT_FORCE:Number = 20;

public var _bounces:TextField;
public var _highscore:TextField;
public var _ball:Ball;

private var _vx:Number;
private var _vy:Number;

public function DocumentMain():void
{
_vx = 10;
_vy = 0;

_ball.buttonMode = true;

addEventListener(Event.ENTER_FRAME, enterFrameHandler);
addEventListener(MouseEvent.MOUSE_DOWN, mouseDownHandler);
}

private function enterFrameHandler(e:Event):void
{
// gravitate the ball
_vy += GRAVITY;

// move the ball
_ball.x += _vx;
_ball.y += _vy;

// check stage boundaries for collision
checkBoundaryCollision();
}

private function mouseDownHandler(e:MouseEvent):void
{
// hit the ball if it has been clicked
if (e.target == _ball)
{
hit(e.target.mouseX, e.target.mouseY);
}
}

private function checkBoundaryCollision():void
{
var left:Number;
var right:Number;
var bottom:Number;
var top:Number;

left = _ball.x - (_ball.width / 2);
right = _ball.x + (_ball.width / 2);
bottom = _ball.y + (_ball.height / 2);
top = _ball.y - (_ball.height / 2);

if (left < 0 && _vx < 0)
{
_ball.x = _ball.width / 2;
_vx *= -1;
}
else if (right > stage.stageWidth && _vx > 0)
{
_ball.x = stage.stageWidth - (_ball.width / 2);
_vx *= -1;
}
if (top < 0 && _vy < 0)
{
_ball.y = _ball.height / 2;
_vy *= -1;
}
else if (bottom > stage.stageHeight && _vy > 0)
{
_ball.y = stage.stageHeight - (_ball.height / 2);
_vy *= -BOUNCE_FACTOR;
_vx *= BOUNCE_FACTOR;

if (Number(_bounces.text) > Number(_highscore.text))
{
_highscore.text = _bounces.text;
}
_bounces.text = "0";
}
}

private function hit(hitX:Number, hitY:Number):void
{
// increment bounces
_bounces.text = String(Number(_bounces.text) + 1);

// adjust the vertical velocity of the ball
if (_vy > 0)
{
_vy *= -BOUNCE_FACTOR / 2;
}
_vy -= HIT_FORCE;

// adjust the horizontal velocity of the ball
if (_vx * hitX > 0)
{
_vx *= -BOUNCE_FACTOR;
}

_vx -= (hitX / _ball.width) * HIT_FORCE;
}
}
}

So if I were to add _rounds as a dynamic text field on the stage and put in public var _rounds:TextField; near the beginning where i establish my other variables that would set me up to be able to use it later in the code right?

then could I alter my last section of the private function checkBoundaryCollision():void section of the code to be:

if (bottom > stage.stageHeight && _vy > 0)

{

_ball.y = stage.stageHeight - (_ball.height / 2);

_vy *= -BOUNCE_FACTOR;

_vx *= BOUNCE_FACTOR;



if (Number(_bounces.text) > Number(_highscore.text))

{

_highscore.text = _bounces.text;

}

_bounces.text = "0";
_rounds.text += 1

}
so that when the ball hits the ground the rounds go up by one.
Am I right so far?

Now I'm confused as to how i should integrate the code that you gave me. Because the next thing i need to do is make it so that when the _rounds variable textbox shows greater than three (so at the end of the third round) the game terminates.

thanks so much in advance!
