I had a working .swf which I used for getting news items from an XML file. I wanted the news items to be randomized so I added the following code:
newsitem = random(3) +1; // generates number 1, 2 or 3. if(newsitem==1) gotoAndPlay(2); else if(newsitem==2) gotoAndPlay(3); else gotoAndPlay(4);
The purpose is to get a random number and then jump to a corresponding frame. After I added this code, Firefox refuses to show my first news item completely. Sometimes all the texts are missing, sometimes just some. It doesn’t appear to be an XML issue - I tried switching places with the news items and it’s always the first item of the XML file that has this problem.
Is there something wrong with the code I added? I’m running out of ideas…
