External Swf Transitions - issues in Flash 8?

Happy New Year, everyone!

I’m working on a site with transitions (external swfs) between the sections and have integrated Voetsjoeba’s advice via the fabulous tutorial.

But it doesn’t want to work correctly. I’ve tested it a myriad of ways (including starting from scratch) and still nothing.

Is it possible that the AS isn’t compatible with Flash 8? I realize it was a tutorial created four years ago…so maybe there are things I need to do to alter it?

Thanks so much to everyone for their help in advance! :wink:
