Help,
I'm trying to make my website in Flash and I have 3 different gallery sections which are each a separate swf file, so that none of the files take too long to download. I have used the "loadMovie" Action to load each gallery section into the main .swf file. The First or main page is sitting in an html file. The whole thing works fine locally but when i upload my site only the main swf will load. When I click on the gallery buttons the browser says "done" but the page remains blank.
Perhaps its something to do with absolute or relative paths, but i dont see how coz everything including the html page, resides in one folder.
I guess its something to do with the "loadMovie" action which looks like this:

on (release) {
loadMovieNum("chaintro.swf", 0);

I'm quite new to Flash, so sorry if this is a really obvious question. Hope someone can help
cheers

i found that if i created my html page that holds the main swf file from within flash then this fixed the problem. it works on a remote site now as well as locally -
