Hey in school I always learned this
+y



x < +x



y
so can someone please explain to me why in flash the Y is flipped?
I have a code which is very simple moved my movieclip left, right, up, down with arrow keys.
here is the actual movement part
// move every frame
function moveMascot(event:Event) {
var speed:Number = 5;
if (leftArrow) {
mascot.x = speed;
}
if (rightArrow) {
mascot.x += speed;
}
if (upArrow) {
mascot.y = speed;
}
if (downArrow) {
mascot.y += speed;
}
now shouldnâ€™t uparrow be += and downarrow be =??
Thanks
