One Last Post: Smart Fox Tutorial: Tips And Tricks

Hey guys,

With Club Penguin dead I thought I would give people a few tips on how to make their very on virtual world.  This tips may be a bit outdated as I haven’t used flash or sfs for years.  The basic idea to making a virtual world is to use Smart Fox Server.  You can choose either basic, pro, 2x.  With 2x there are many more options at your figure tips, but 1x (basic/pro) is far easier to use, so the tips that I’ll be giving will be based on 1x.  It’s also important to note that these tips will be using action script 2.0.

Tip 1.0 Making rooms

In Smart Fox Server making rooms can be complicated.  I remember finding this quite tricky, but fortunately I still have the code for this so I’ll post it below:

The correct button code:

on (release) {



_root.smartfox.joinRoom(“Room Name Goes Here”);


The basic idea is to make a button and put this code inside.  When you click the button (assuming you made the room’s background) the background will change and the sfs room will change. If I remember correct “_root.gotoAndStop(16)” is a totally useless line of code because there’s no semi-colon at the end but since I’m not sure I’ll leave it be.  Also you may want to change “gotoAndPlay(2); ” to “gotoAndStop(2); ”

Check out for more details.

Tip 2.0  Account Systems/Storing Variables

I remember this being a pain and I don’t have the code that I used so this may be useless.  The basic idea here is to call PHP from as2 and then use PHP to communicate with MySQL in order to create an account.  According to the adobe forums you’ll want to use the loadvars sendAndLoad method.

If you want to check out more I’ll leave the link to the forum post:


Tip 3.0 – User Variables

Finally if you want to make different kinds of animations or “clothes” you’ll want to use user variables.  Here’s a video that you may find helpful:


And also you can try:

So that’s about it for my Smart Fox Server tips and tricks.  I apologize for the lack of detail and potential outdated information.  I hope it can at least inspire and perhaps to making your very own virtual world.
