    Hi Sandra-

    It's great to see I'm not the only one who digs up dead old threads and tries to breathe new life into them. I don't remember what project that was, so I'm not having any luck digging...

    I'd suggest you comment out the if statement and see if your movieclip plays without stopping. If you isolate that if statement as the problem, maybe you can find someplace else to put it (like on...

    Is your gotoAndPlay the last command in the function? Sometimes if you continue to issue commands after a gotoAndPlay, it will interrupt the Play.

    [MX04] Hit Test, or Mouse Position?

    I need to be able to record how the mouse moves while the button is pressed. I imagine this as a grid of 9 boxes, and I'd like to record each instance where the mouse passes through the center of a...

    If this isn't as simple as it sounds, then I apologize for posting the obvious. If you edit the button itself, you should find a frame called "Hit" Make sure that this frame contains only the area...

    Is every page except the homepage in the AboutFolder? If so, you can't use the same relative link from two different folders. Geezer's suggestion above should solve your problem. Either that or you...

    In the audio FAQ, it says that some flash mp3 players have no trouble importing mp3 files with extension .mpx. Do you think that would fool your host?

    Can you insert a half second of silence before the T in your sound editing software? You say you tried some initial space, but maybe it's not enough.

    I would also play with Flash's treatment of...

    If anyone still cares

    When I do this, I put blank white (or black) boxes outside the work area (off the canvas)- and stretch as far as the user's display options might include. Always seems to center.

    darn darn darn

    Since 2002, and no one answered this question?

    I have the same problem right here in 2005. Earthlink's mailto works just fine from html, but if I pass the same variables using the same URL from a...

    Darn. All those Foster's commercials and I still don't know how to speak Australian!

    Do you know the lengths in advance?

    If these aren't dynamically generated somehow, can't you set a total time variable in each swf and read it into the main timeline as "totaltime" (or something equally brilliant)?

    Then,

    That's a bit harsh

    I wouldn't say this doesn't have its own style just because it shares the overall shape of the pixelranger site. This is a whole different color scheme, subject matter, and even the interface is...

    onClipEvent(load)

    I'm doing almost exactly what you're doing. I'm just alternating between two movie clips, while one shows its jpg and the other loads the next one.

    From everything that I've read, this really...

    what about a preloader in the external swf?

    I guess this problem was long ago. I'm still trolling for an answer to waiting for jpgs to load.

    Anyway, if you're loading a swf to a level, you're home free. Stop the main timeline on the frame...
  18. did you mean loadMovieNum?

    Maybe loading onto level 2 didn't work because you used loadMovie instead of loadMovieNum?

    Also, when loading an external text file, an easy workaround for loading time is to make &load=loaded...

    empty first frame in each loaded swf

    Load them all at once, regardless of the frame on which your main timeline sits. Either use a separate mc container for each loaded swf, or load them onto separate layers using loadMovieNum.

  22. Unbelievable!

    My syntax was just fine. (Albeit a bit wimpy for using one-dimensional arrays)

    When I loaded up my arrays, it was two frames after calling the text file to load up the variables.
