I'm a beginning programmer in flash, I wanted to make a sort of ragdoll wich you can drag etc. for my friends.
First I made a simple rope-drag engine on my Graphical calculator using BASIC, this worked on my computer.
In the next stage where I wanted to paste bodyparts on the ragdoll, I noticed the arms rotated around the neck. Not how it should be...
As a result of that I added shoulders wich would appear at a fixed distance of the neck, the angle is 90 degrees more or less then the angle of the neck to the upper joint of the body.
Making the arms follow the shoulder is no problem now, but when pushing the arm toward the shoulder the shoulder does really weird stuff... I think it is related to the arrangment of calculating the coördinates.
Now, since my english is too bad to explain it better, I've uploaded it.
The swf can be found here: http://d2.myfreefilehosting.com/d1/Ragdoll3.fla
The fla can be found here: http://www.zshare.net/flash/64341490170457
For the ones opening the fla, on the first frame I set the distances of the body-parts, on the second I set the ragdoll, on the third, temporarely frame, I've placed the rest of the bodyparts so have a clear view on the second frame where the movie stops...
Thank you in advance...
