I'm trying to modify the 'tsunami' praystation movie so that it has multiple columns - I've been to the tutorial on http://www.actionscripts.org, tried to do it, but still can't...

the bit I'm stuck on is this bit;

"To create multiple columns, you will need to add additional bounding boxes inside “01 – boundingbox”. The second box must be called “boundbox2”, the third “boundbox3” etc. When this is done, the columns must be placed inside the appropriate box and the first four variables in frame 2 inside the columns changed according to the number of the box, starting number, ending number and number of objects. For example the second column (inside box no. 2) should have the column number 2 (if it was 1, then the objects would be scaled and given an alpha value, if the mouse was located inside box 1). The scale amount and alpha value could be specific to each column; you would only have to change the maximum, minimum and dividend in “scaleAmount” and “alphaAmount”. "

I've done what it says, but only the second column works!
Does anybody have a working example? or can tell me what I'm doing wrong?

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks!

Sorry
We emailed the guy who wrote it and asked him to take a look.

I hope he will help us.

Thanks for your help!
you can see what I was trying to do by going to;

...then going to ADMINISTRATION.
If you reload the movie by clicking on ADMINISTRATION again, a different column works, WEIRD!

help! :)

Very wierd. The first time, the middle and right ones worked. The 2nd time and all times after that the left one only worked.

hmmm

done it!

for anyone who's interested, or wants to download the file;

I think what I was doing wrong was DUPLICATING '01 - bounding box' instead of simply dragging another '01 - bounding box solid' onto the stage, renaming the instance to 'boundbox2', then dragging a new column into that box, renaming that instance 'column2' (then editing the column movie frame 2 to colnum=2).

Simple! (er???!!!!!!)

All the best to everyone else!
