Loading swf files into different levels

Hi folks, I followed this tutorial which was very usefull:-


Now I’ve got my main buttons level which has 9 buttons. A few of
these buttons load a second level of choices. These choices inturn will call a third level of thumbnails that will display images.

What I want to do is have each choice level loaded as a external swf then inturn they call the thumbnails data file which is a swf file.

My problem is that after loading the mainlevel I can get the second choice to load into the blank “mc”, but I just can’t get that choice level to load the third level external swf file.

I need serious help to sort this ASAP.

well, you’ll need a second blank MC if your doing it that way.

Yes thats what I thought but I’m not sure my code is right. I still can’t get it to load up the second or third level swf files…

Why not post the file and someone will check it out for you, sounds like it might be a naming problem.

true, here are the files

sorry clicked return without adding them… they are in a zip folder

You sure it isn’t an attempt to get more posts :stuck_out_tongue:

NAHHHH… got concept artwork and models to build. If I new producing a decent and efficient flash site was going to take this long I would have stuck with HTML !!!

Here my sites that are online at the mo…

I bet it is due to your referencing, make sure that anything directing to the third level has the syntax:


where second and third levels are the names of your holding movieclips.


I’ve tried this and i still having trouble in getting this working. I really need someone to look at the tutorial I posted

I just need someone to take this tutorial and add a second and third choice level to each of these buttons using the loadmovie command. I need a clear examples…

I changed the script so it was on the button, and added a new empty movie clip called wincon.

it is different than your original file, so i would save it in a different folder than your original file.

of course you will need to move a copy of choice.swf to the new folder as well.

Hope this helps.


Thanks for the help. I managed to get the choice.swf file loaded without the need for a third empty movie file. Unfortunately it’s still not loading any of the swf files that are called for the choice buttons. I’m going to push on cause I know this can be done.
