An idea how to increase PSP's available flash button count

So, I was just playing Splinter Cell: Essentials, when an idea came up to mind. I quickly run up to PC and now I am writing.

All the available buttons - analog stick; direction pad and X - are not much.
Of course you can make it so that you can press two buttons together.

What about holding?

Hold X for 1 second, the function will be different than tapping.

Unfortunately, for short time I dont have so powerful PC, to run Macromedia Flash MX 2004, so I cant program, and test this out.
So, I dont know if there is a code for holding button.

If not, then this could work:
Make a totally simple MC, make it so that it has two frames.
When you tap X, that MC will be on first frame.
When you hold X for one second, that MC will go to second frame.
And when it is on 2nd, a code will start:
If 2nd frame is true,
then... (example: player jumps)

It would double the available count of buttons.

I dont know if someone use this, but I needed to write it here.

I know that I made really difficult and probably, there is much easier code for holding, but I dont know it.

Re: An idea how to increase PSP's available flash button count

I see. I am on my psp right now so I can't test it either. neutral

But how can this be utilised?

Also I'm thinking it might trigger two actions. For example, if you assign jump to a tap and attack to hold, you might jump then attack. Get my drift?

that could be an advantage, though
then have a normal attack button


I've moved on from PSP to iPod Touch. Contact me else where...

Re: An idea how to increase PSP's available flash button count

here's a very buggy proof of concept
fla: http://files.getdropbox.com/u/1057201/buttonconcept.fla
swf: http://files.getdropbox.com/u/1057201/buttonconcept.swf

i did this in 5 minutes so its very quite badly made but you should get the general idea of how this can be done maybe someone can use this in a game or something.
