I am making a flash movie with a target as the mouse sign, i would like to make it so when i click the mouse it leaves an image of a bullet hole. I have made a target but now i need to make my symbol of a bullet hole appear wherever i click, and stay there.
Thankyou in anticipation
Dave

please , try not to cross post !
for flash5,here is the syntax to do this. First, in the library, go to "linkage" option for the movieclip you want to appear. Give it an export name (let's say : "mymc")
then , to make it appear, use .attach movie as above :

_root.attachMovie("mymc","instancename",1)

_root ==> this first argument is where th mc appears

( "mymc" ==> the linkage name/identifier
, "instancename" ==> the name you give to the mc
, 1 ) ==> depth of the mc

hope you'll succed with this

Sorry, i thought once i had posted my msg that the scripting section better suited it.
Thanks again for the speedy reply, i will try it out but i am very stupid, is there a tutorial for this anywhere?
