Here's my problem thats got me stuck - i know im not far off
<page1.html> has <pic1.swf> embedded in it...
<pic1.swf> has a button that loads the <audio1.swf> movie into level 5 (this is a voiceover to the picture)
at the end of <audio1.swf> is a getURL that loads <page2.html> into the browser
<page2.html> has <pic2.swf> embedded in it
<pic2.swf> also has a button in it to load the <audio2.swf> movie into level 5 (this is the next voicover to the next picture)
what i want to achieve is that if you play <page1.html>'s audio it automatically goes to <page2.html> and automatically loads <audio2.swf> over <pic2.swf> (audio=true)
but if you got to <page2.html> directly the audio doesn't start unless you press the button
my idea is basically getURL = slide2.html after setting the audio=true variable the send using GET .. somehow this is fed into the pic2.swf and if audio=true then loadMovie audio2.swf - for some reason the ?audio=true isn't being appended to the URL..?
but im using GET to send the variable to the next page
I'm still stuffing about with this thing here and it appears the problem that i am having is that IE isn't appending the ?audio=true to the end of the URL - netscape is behaving itself though... If i create a HTML link on the first page that has the ?audio=true appended on the end of the URL, the swf on page 2 receives it properly...
