It's challenging to wrap my mind around using a symbol to do this ball bounce. It was easier with the shape tween and simple shape directly on the stage. I think I should do the animation with shape tweens IN the symbol then, place that symbol on the stage, moving it around when necessary. I did that with this one. The color changes are only happening because of shape tweens in the symbol which I didn't loop.
With that I'm scrapping what I did recently. It's too complex and not really following with the guidelines of the assignment. I hate it when I NEED to start over on something. :-/ I will "K.I.S.S" the next one. "Keep It Simple, Stupid!"
