I'm primarily a Director user, but have just begun Flashing. I have encountered a problem that should be very simple to solve, but has turned into a really big deal.
All I want to do is load a movie/swf file (from a running movie/swf file), and go to a specific frame or scene in the loaded movie. What is happening is, I can call the movie, but not specify the frame or scene.
In a nutshell: From the "Main level"/"Level-0" movie, at an arbitrary point in the timeline, while the movie is playing, I click on a button and stop the timeline from playing.
I then click on a newly visible picture/button, which links me to the sub-level swf/movie.
The sub-level movie has only a stop command and a "back button" (at this point).
I want to be able to click on the "back-button" and return to the exact point in the time line in the Main-level movie that I left from.
This is a cinch if we are dealing with different scenes in the same movie, but we're not.

Scroll the picture timeline. Click on a picture. It takes you to a "sub-level" movie. Click the back button. You return to frame 1, Scene 1, of the "main-level"/"Level 0" movie. I want to return to frame 18 of Scene 1 of the main level movie.
I have tried and tried, read everything I can find, seached the net, and am now asking the real guys. Any ideas how a not very good with ActionScripts kinda guy can make this happen?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
