Default stop(); and gotoAndPlay(); - should be easy, what am i missing???


i have an 'intro' part and i want to move to the 'main' part...

i can't believe i am having such difficulty with this; it should be so simple... guess i'm still one of those newbies who know just enough actionscript to be dangerous...

i have tried
with "main" being the frame label to start the main part (after having tried all sorts of things with scenes, and most people here advising to forget scenes...)

i want to stop all current animation and, well, start a new scene basically, but i can't get both the Stop and the Play to work together.....

i have tried with and without '_root.' on one or both lines..

i have tried the script all on one frame - that does show the timeline moving to the new frame, but it does Not stop everything that came before - not only that but it starts repeating everything from before... even though i have a 'stop();' at the very end of the whole timeline....

i have tried the script on succeeding frames, and then the swf just Stops, and never continues to the 'main'....

so... i am at loss what else to try.... help??!

i would upload the fla file, but i had to place it directly inside an actionscript class file folder in order for that part to work, so i'd have to upload the entire folder in order for you to see it working... will if i need to tho!

any help much appreciated!
