    Scores will not show up after load

    I have a splash intro for my game. After you click play it loads like this

    loadMovieNum("game.swf", 1)
    stop();


    Then in the game, the score does not show up or work. Now when I load the game.swf by itself, the score works and shows up.

    Here is the script for score im using


    (Script for the number thats suppose to show)

    onClipEvent(load){
    score=0
    }


    (How you add the score after clicking right answer)

    on(press){
    _root.scorer.score+=1
    }


    Thanks for help!

    Because you're loading in the swf from another file, the swf doing the loading is now the "_root". So when you refer to root, you're calling the loader shell file, where the score doesn't actually exist.

    Instead of using "_root" you can try using "this" or "_parent" until you reach the level where your variable exists.

    In AS2, which it seems you're using, it would go something like this...

    Code:
    on(press){
       this.scorer.score+=1
    }
    or

    Code:
    on(press){
       this._parent.scorer.score+=1
    }
    or

    Code:
    on(press){
       this._parent._parent.scorer.score+=1
    }
    until you reach the level where your score is. Not sure how many movieclips deep your button is nested.

    Thanks for reply,

    I put in all three options but the score simply does not show up at all after loading the .swf file. I dont understand it

    onClipEvent(load){
    score=0
    }

    is it because its onClipEvent? Like said before, it works when I play it from the original file, but if loaded the score disappears!

    Did the scores already show up after loading? Have you tried using the ActionScript 3 for your game script?

    AS3 wanted to be like Java so much, while AS1/2 were more like JavaScript. Now look where AS3 is and where JavaScript is But really, I made myself to love these closures, instead of making a class an/or method for everything. They could probably drop "this" keyword, and have JS still useable.
    who is this? a word of friendly advice: FFS stop using AS2
