Fighting game help needed!

hi all,

heres my problem:

  1. My game is 2 player (no ai)
    both controlled by
    //action blah blah.""
    types of code.

  2. ATM my players can ‘hold’ the attack key down and it reduces the opponents health via hitTest. While only playing the animation once?

basically i want to ‘attack’ once not continued if holding the key down, while only taking of say ‘5’ to the enemy’s health.

So if any one new of a simple yet effective way of solving this

** all code is broken into two character mc’s**

then plz can u post.

PS… if u need me to post my code then i can but for now we shall see wat people come up with.


heres the swf.
