    Anyone know of an easy way to clear all variable values in a certain level or just all of them?

    Use this code to set all variables in _root (or whereever, MC, object etc) to 0 (again, or to whatever, true false etc)...

    Code:
    for (varname in _root)
    {
    _root[varname] = 0;
    }

    Or:

    varname delete;

    But that is not a single function that deletes all

    I thought it was the other way around...

    delete varname;

    And you can combine the 2 can't you? Unless this deletes more than you need (like the version number) - will that have side effects?

    for (varname in _root)
    {
    delete varname;
    }

    So maybe it's wise to contain the required wiped variables in a seperate object/MC to not delete version number...?
