    That worked! Thank you! I knew I was missing something simple like that, but I was way off thinking it was a path/layer issue! Now I'll build the page that reads back the xml, and displays the points points. Ideally I'd like to save all of the player points into a database and display everyones ranking. What's the best way to go about this?

    Again - thank you very much! I was about to give up on the project!

    i hope that this file is close to where you are heading

    upload the php and xml files to your server

    change the Flash file to point to your domain - path = "http: etc"

    test the movie, then go to the winner.xml file in your browser


    your original code was failing for a few reasons, the main one was -

    you had used the Library name for the movieclips in your script
    you must always give the clip an instance name and use that name in your script.
    I gave instance names to the two targets - target01 and target02
    I mod_dog, while working on upgrading this file, I've ran into a small, but annoying issue. Everthing is working well, however when a 'player' hits the finish or submit button several time, i'm now getting multiple entries into my database. I've tried just having the submit button go to a frame then call for the database, but it then crashes... Is there any easy way to just have the button disapear after the 'player' has clicked it once?

    Your help is appreciated!! Thanks!

    on the button press - buttonInstanceName.enabled = false; // disable
    on the onLoad function - buttonInstanceName.enabled = true; // re-enable

    or use the _visible property, or move the _y property to _y = 2000

    Thanks for responding. Where do I place this code? Within the button actions?

    you say - 'player' hits the finish or submit button several time

    so the code applies to the finish and/or submit button
