    oK, I have just a 2-frame movie.. both frames set as buttons. I am trying to get them to switch back and forth on mouseover. I put the action script on #1 that says:
    Code:
    on (rollOver) {
        gotoAndPlay (2);
    }
    Why doesnt it work when I test it?

    Well...

    first of all you can't create frames as buttons. It sounds like you're confused about the use of frame actions and button actions.

    You could accomplish what I think you're looking to do in any number of ways but first I would suggest that you try using frame labels and assiging the actions to go to the labels.

    Frame1 - a button action
    On(Press, Release, whatever)
    Go to and Stop("label2")
    End

    Frame2 - a button action
    On(Press, Release, whatever)
    Go to and Stop("label1")
    End

    If you use Go to and Play on a two frame movie which has no stop actions in the frames then it will just go into a continuous loop and you would have no action.

    Maybe that's what you have happening?

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks so much for your help; I understand now what you're saying, but I tried again (now I used the controller). When I did rewind, I rolled my mouse over it, and it changed to scene 2 like I wanted. Then it stopped, and wouldn't go back to scene 1 when I rolled over it.

    I'm not quite sure what you are looking to do then.

    Do you want one thing to play on the roll over action and nothing to play on roll out?

    Don't worry I got it right - I had to turn it into a button. Thanks for your help though
