Miscellaneous Corrections

  • Hunt-A-Fox Game: In this game, if you click on where a fox is hidden, the click counts as a hit even though the fox should be out of sight. The reason is that the movie clip is there, just behind something else. A quick fix for this is to change one line of code in the onClipEvent(mouseDown) script:
    if (_root["fox"+i]["fox"]._currentFrame == 1) {
    . This will make sure that the inner "fox" movie clip is on frame one before it counts it as a hit. If the inner "fox" movie clip is not there at all, as is the case when teh fox is hidden, then the _currentFrame is "undefined", which registers as <= 1 in Flash MX.
