How do I make items/powerups come with in the next scene?

I have a basic problem I think, when the character touches items/powerups they'll go into itemslots. But when the character touches a door or heads to the next scene/stage (not a frame), the items/powerups are not in the itemslots anymore even though I added them to the next scene (mainly their just outside the itemslots).


How do I get the game to keep the progress as the character enters other scenes/stages? 
I don't know if flash games only work on one scene or if I setup arrays or sharedobjects.

using scenes means you have to redo anything you want to carry from one scene to the bext.

you can either use one scene (and mimic scenes by use keyframe with labels), or use code (eg, a data object that saves data so whatever is needed in other scenes can be restored).

too simple for a tutorial:

 

on your main timeline, create it:

 

var dataObj:Object = {};

 

then when you want to save something eg, lives or a player name, use

 

dataObj["lives] = 1;

dataObj["name"] = "madman";

 

if you want to increment lives

 

dataObj["lives"]++;
or decrement 

dataObj["lives"]--;

 

to retrieve data

 

if(dataObj["lives"]<1){
gotoAndStop("gameover");

}

so I just go to main timeline (like character or vcam?) Because I'm trying create a powerups like magic jewel or extra lives like this:

var dataObj:Object = {magicjewel};

 

dataObj["powerup"] = 1;

dataObj["name"] = "magicjewel";

no.  

 

if you want to store magicjewels, you probably want to save the number of jewels in the players inventory.

 

var dataObj:Object = {};

 

// for numeric items you can use addNumericItemsF by passing the string you want to store/increment

 

function addNumericItemsF(s:String):void{
if(!dataObj[s]){
dataObj[s]=1;

} else {
dataObj[s]++;

}

}

Mainly the itemslots are the inventory, you see I set the inventory to be a bunch of itemslots in a rectangle/box. 
1. What would the main timeline be exactly?
2. var dataObj:Object = {itemslot}; is this the correct way to put it?

3. would I have to save the items data (although there is only one of each) in the layers of the itemslots?

yes, that would work, but it's less flexible than using 1's and 0's.  but if that's what you want to do, go for it.

that depends on what you use to "fill slots" when changing scenes.

Are you talking about for items or itemslots or for the one I sent:

var dataObj:Object = {};

dataObj["magicJewel"] = true;

dataObj["magicHourglass"] = false;

dataObj["magicWand"] = true;

I mainly used an ai code generator for this. Sorry if it looks confusing or wrong.

 

This is the one for items:

addEventListener(Event.ENTER_FRAME, onEnterFrame); function onEnterFrame(event:Event):void { if (char.hitTestObject(this)) { addToSlot(this); } }

 

This is the one for Itemslots:

var currentslotnum:int = 1; stop(); function addToSlot(magicjewel:DisplayObject):void { if (!magicjewel["found"]) { magicjewel.x = root["itemslot" + currentslotnum].x; magicjewel.y = root["itemslot" + currentslotnum].y; magicjewel["found"] = true; root["itemInSlot" + currentslotnum] = magicjewel; // Store item in root currentslotnum++; } }

how to you know which item slot num to use or do you just store them willy-nilly?  ie, a powerup might be in the first slot or last slot (depending only on previous items found).
