    can't control the _x _y values

    can't control the _x _y values with external swf using loadMovieNum***

    ok i'm loading 2 swf files with loadMovieNum within there levels. when they show up i'm getting thrown off as to how to control there _x and _y values.

    they are showing up at the top left registration point of the background.

    i for some reason cannot figure this out.

    please help me out.

    If you change the _x and _y values immediately after calling loadMovie or loadMovieNum, it won't work, because when the movie loads, it will obliterate the values you set. You can work around this by using an additional container movie, and changing the _x, _y values of the container (which won't get obliterated).

    e.g.

    code:

    _root.createEmptyMovieClip("cont_mc", 1);
    cont_mc.loadmc = loadMovie("xxx.swf");
    cont_mc.loadmc._x = 100; // this won't work
    cont_mc._x = 100; // but this will
    cont_mc._y = 200;

    this will also work:

    _root.onEnterFrame = function(){
    if (_level1 != undefined){
    _level1._x = xvaluehere;
    _level1._y = yvaluehere;
    delete _root.onEnterFrame;
    }
    }

    it needs only a flick of a second.
