FEEL FREE TO ASK QUESTIONS I know how frustrating it can be for a beginning flash-er. :3 However, asking me how or where to get Flash is not a valid question. It's a program that you have to buy. Purchasing things in a store(or online) is a life skill you need to learn from your parents(or on your own).

Includes:
1) Setting Up Flash Stage - How to stop your flash so that things don't play out like a movie.
2) Simple Drag and Drop items.
3) Setting up a closet so drag and drop items will be neat and tidy instead of messy and all over your game.

Now I have something to link people to when I'm asked how I make a dress up game. nn These are pretty much the basics to making item closets for drag and drops, which was one of the things I could NEVER find tutorials on when I went about trying to learn. I can't even remember what I found that finally helped me. ._.

This definitely isn't for newbies to flash though, as it's expected that you already know the basics of making buttons and symbols, enough that you can make flash movies. The reason I didn't include in-depth details on how to make buttons is because there are already a ton of tutorials that exist for this. Type in a search to google and you can find at least 10 tutorials on the first page alone(Or more, I've never looked |P ).

QWESTIONS DERP

Question: What program do you use to make a flash?
Answer: Adobe Flash. You can find info on their website: www.adobe.com/products/flash.h… and even purchase it from them. Also, you can try computer stores. 8D

Question: Where did you learn how to program Action Script?
Answer: I took a class in high school that taught me the basics(buttons, animation, tweening, etc.) and another in college that expanded that knowledge(animations within movie clips, layer masks, AWESOME THINGS! etc.), but not particularly how to make a dress-up. Once I understood HOW Action Script worked, I thought of what I wanted my game to do and literally just googled the specific terms, then searched through hundreds(yes, literally, hundreds. x_x ) of tutorials for the ones I wanted. When I found a tutorial with the coding that I wanted, I would work it into my own game and tweak it to make it perform.

Question: How do you make a color picker like in your games?
Answer: The color picker from my earlier games(night fury maker) was not created by me. It was a free flash component that I found online. Last I checked however, it is no longer available for free, so I don't know where anyone can get it now. The color picker that I use now was a custom built picker that I made myself and, unfortunately, is one I will not make a tutorial for. It was created with a combination of different tutorials that I found online, using search terms such as, "AS2 custom color picker" "Hex code picker/display/input" "set color picker" "dress up color picker" etc. I used the knowledge from those multiple tutorials to create the picker that I have now.

If you wanted to make a Male/Female toggle what would you use this same method or another one?

This trick is mainly for clothing or items. For a male/female base you'd have to make two dolls and have a button switch between the two. It's more detail than I can go into in a comment, but using a visible = true/false coding to make the male disappear while the female appears and vice versa can work. While some others place the two dolls on their own keyframes and have a button that goes back and forth between the male and female frames. I believe there are some tutorials on dA with those types, I don't have links to them though.

How do you make a start screen? .O.
I've got my start button in the first frame, with the code you said to put on it,
And I've got my game on the next frame,
But when I try and click my start button to advance to the next frame,
It doesn't work?

(I'm a total newb when it comes to flash XD Well, I know as much to make the basic dressup game, but not much else XD )

You need a code that will advance the game. :3 Are you using AS2 or AS3? If AS2, then putting this on the button:
on(press){
gotoAndStop(2);
}
In the parenthasis, you put the number of the frame that you want it to stop on, that is, the frame your game's on. If you've named the frame, then simply put quotes in the parenthesis surrounding the name of the frame. ("framename")

These are the same codes I use in my flash games, so it all depends on how you want to use them. :3 But basically, this is it.
