    Flash Player 9 and actionscript 2.0


    What's the difference between actionscript 2.0 in Flash Player 9 and actionscript 2.0 in Flash Player 8

    I've written a project in as2 fp9 and certain things don't work when exporting as fp8

    I'm not using as3

    so some examples may help..

    I'm not sure what part of it is the problem, it's a complicated file. Just wondered what the difference is...

    Surely, if i'm using as2 then the player version shouldn't matter?

    You can use AS2 with a Flash 9 project. Adobe even made a button to create a Flash 9 AS2 document...

    There shouldn't be any difference at all, AS2 didn't change between Flash 8 and 9 (AFAIK). It should work the same.

    What is the problem? When you export as a Flash 9 .swf it doesn't work? Or when you export as Flash 8 and try it in Flash Player 9 it doesn't work?

    You're being way too vague to help at the moment.

    It's a problem with removing movieClips. The same script works when exported as flash player 9 but not as flash player 8

    I am trying removeMovieClip on mc's that are at 2000000 or thereabouts. But I just realised the maximum range for depths is -16384 to 1048575 and in the flash documentation it says removeMovieClip() will have no affect on clips outside this range

    Does that mean flash player 9 exceeds this?

    you can experiment with the publish settings between flash 8 and 9
