Health help

can someone please tell me why this code does not work and correct it?

Code:

if(_root.life = 0);
_root.gotoAndStop(7);
}
}

what it is is that when my person hits something its health goes down. I have ut this on the scene so that when the health (called life) reaches 0 it goes to frame 7

Re: Health help

Code:

if(_root.life == 0);
_root.gotoAndStop(7);
}
}

You need a "==" instead of "=".
"=" is a modifier, whereas "==" is the equality operator.

In fact though,  you might want to use "<=" in case life goes below zero.

Re: Health help

And you never opened the commands in the if... so with the enterFrame it would be:

Code:

onClipEvent(enterFrame){
if(_root.life == 0){
_root.gotoAndStop(7);
}
}
