Hi. I have a movie that takes up half of the stage and the other half loads 13 external swf's on top of it. The movie on the first level will always stay the same, with the exception of the visiblility of a star. Here is the problem... Within each of the 13 external swf 's there is a button which should turn the star on and off, but the star resides on the root level. How do I get the buttons on each of the 13 external swf's to communicate with the star on the root level? I hope I explained myself enough! Thanks!

I think the 2nd one is correct :)

Yay! That worked! I didn't know how to reference the movie on the bottom level. Thanks!
