Hey all, I'm in a bit of a pickle.

I have two AS3 swfs. The one - a movie player - accepts flash vars, and works fine. It then calls a second swf to skin itself. This second swf also takes flashvars.

I am trying to make the second swf - the skin - reach into the parent root to get at those flashvars. In AS2 its easy - _root.myVar will do the trick. Unfortunately this doesn't work anymore.

To make things more complicated, I have yet another swf that sits before everything - it basically checks the Flash version of the user, and loads an appropriate file (either Flash 8 or Flash 9). This 'loader' swf is what accepts the flashvars, and then passes them along. however, I think this is working fine, so I don't think that's the problem.

I'm new to AS3 and I've been confused by most of what's out there. Do I have to make my own class and do all that just to access these flashvars?

Thanks for your help
