Placing the disc
Once the board has been created, it's time to draw the discs.
The idea: There are two types of disc, a red one and a yellow one. We will create a Movie Clip symbol with two frames, one for each color of disc and each player.
The development: In
connect4.fla, create a new Movie Clip symbol called
disc_movieclip and set it as exportable for ActionScript.
- frame 1: a red disc, used by player one (the human)
- frame 2: a yellow disc, used by player two (the computer)
Both discs have a 60 pixel diameter and registration point at 0,0.
