heh heh... sorta feel like I'm talking to myself, but who knows.
anyway, I sorta got it to work, what it needed was a stop() on frame two to keep the movie from rolling back to frame 1. So I press the button and it jumps to frame 2, and starts loading the individual page movies and all, voila. however, it now ignores my transition and jumps right to the second frame (as i sort of asked it to do).
I set up as a test a keypress() for the slide, so it transitions to page 2, and then when I keypress, it loads frame 2 fine, but this will not work for someone visiting my page. is there any way I can tell it that once it runs the scroll transition and moves to slide 2, then it should run the keypress() or whatever and move to frame 2? Sorta like what is mentioned above, only I'm back to where I was in the first place - and I'm unable to use that code in my style of movie. Oh the humanity
