I Just Can't Take It

Banging My Sore head for 2 days.

I’ve been through the excellent thread on photo gallerys featuring Scott on crank and have finally pulled most of my head out, but I desperately need a bit of assistance. Have posted a photo gallery sans photo’s running off an xml file based on the V3 photogallery.

Here is where I’m having prob’s:

  1. For some reason, the first photo in the xml datebase (pic1.jpg) does not load when button#1 is pressed. The gallery starts with #2? I just don’t understand why.
  2. On load, the preload bar is presend even though i’ve got visible = 0.
  3. The BIG one. Right now I’ve got an empty frame for my thumb buttons. What I really want to do is have a single button prototype that duplicates itself and externally loads a thumb*.jpg rather than placing each thumb*.jpg on each button manuelly. There was an example on the same thread, but I was unable to combine the two.

Hope this is clear.

Any help is GREATLY appreciated. :upset:
