Actionscript+game HELP!+seesaw effect

Hi. I am very new to Flash AS but I have been trying to create a game that will have a seesaw effect.
So that when the first character jumps off the top platform onto the seesaw the second character will fly up off the seesaw and onto the top platform. I tried just a simple ’ if (Key.isDown(Key.SPACE)) {
_x =’ ,with a hitTest, ect…
but that doesn’t seem to work very well. That also just moves the character straight down or up and it doesn’t appear as though they are actualy jumping.

Is there a specific way of doing this? AM i going about this the right way? or am i completely off base.

I would really appreciate any help. I am desperate. :smiley: :smiley:
