normally this works or at least i have had other situations where it did.
i have attached a movie clip to the root level with another movieclip. when the attached movie clip hits another movieclip on stage, the movieclip should unload, but the hitTest never works.
my code:
this is in the attacher movieclip:
Code:
onClipEvent (load) {
	depthcounter = 1;
}
on (release) {
	_root.attachMovie("bulletsbl", "bulletbl"+depthcounter, depthcounter);
	_root["bulletbl"+depthcounter]._x = this._x;
	_root["bulletbl"+depthcounter]._y = this._y;
	depthcounter++;
}
and in the movieclip being hit, or supposed to be hit:
Code:
onClipEvent (enterFrame) {
	if (_root["bulletbl"+depthcounter].hitTest(this)) {
		this.unloadMovie();
		trace("hit")
	}
}
why won't this work, i don't understand it
