    _y = 0;
    speed = 40;
}
onClipEvent(enterFrame){ 
    endX = (random(480));
    endY = (random(272));
}
onClipEvent(enterFrame){
    _x += (endX-_x)/speed;

Re: Random side to side movemnt

Is this LiveSwif? I see what the code does but I don't get what you're saying. If you could clear me up a bit on what you want and what the code is doing...

Re: Random side to side movemnt

Why are you using 2 enterframes for one clip?
As Crimson said, please clarify what you are trying to do.

Aww man what a waste of my 200th post... oh well.

Re: Random side to side movemnt

Re: Random side to side movemnt

Make it set a target area to move to then switch when it gets there.

If you want you can use 2 movieclips for practice.

Target movieclip:

Code:

_root.target.onEnterFrame=function()
{
if(_root.target.hitTest(_root.man)){
this._y = random(272);
this._x = random(480);
}
}
_root.man.onEnterFrame=function()
{
if(this._x > _root.target._x){
this._x -= 5;
}
if(this._x < _root.target._x){
this._x += 5;
}
if(this._y > _root.target._y){
this._y -= 5;
}
if(this._y < _root.target._y){
this._y += 5;
}
}

That should work (the code just goes on the frame, just make 2 movieclips with instances of target and man. No code on either).

I wrote this as I have just gotten up, so expect it to probably not work.
