View Full Version : should be simple.. (problem with changin scene)

09-24-2002, 11:28 AM
there are two scenes:

scene 1 and scene 2

on scene 1 there is a movie clip

on frame 15 of this movie clip i tell the movie to got to scene 2, frame 1.

but the problem is:

the movie goes to frame one in THAT move clip. it seems like this action needs to be on the root (?)
but how can i tell the film change scenes inside the movie clip? (the action needs to be in the movie clip)

its kindof a lame problem to encouter.. the only real problem ive had so far :(

hope you can help

the action can be anywhere inside any clip - but it needs to target the _root level.

So you will need to make sure your path is correct and use _root.gotoAndPlay(whatever)

i was just experimenting with the same thing, and you came up with the same command. yay =)

thanks ;)

trying it out, now.

i could not make it work :/

_root.gotoAndStop ("scene 2", 1);

that makes the movie go to frame one of scene 1, and stop.:confused:

_root.gotoAndStop ("scene 2", 1);

Should it be?:

_root.gotoAndPlay("scene 2", 1);

I guess that depends on what you want it to do when it gets there...

and make sure that "scene 2" is EXACTLY the name of your scene.

hehe. i made it :)
thanks alot.

i made the move jump to frame 2 of the root, then i put the next scene command in there. works fine, but i dont know if thats the best way to do it (?)
doesent really matter, tho :D
