The _root. of all my problems

Hi forum,

I have a problem…

I have a button which is in a movieclip…when I press the button I would like it to load Scene 2. What I thought would work doesn’t…this is what I have.

On the button inside the movieclip;

on (press) {_root.gotoAndPlay(“Scene2”);


Why doesn’t this work…and how do I get it to.
