Transition Tutorial Help

I’m having problems getting my transitions to work properly. The reason being the buttons are not on the main timeline. I’ve gone over the paths and i run into this: it reads and plays the ‘ending’ transition but then loads the same swf over again. or, i get the right swf’s to load and lose ‘ending’ transition.

I can’t figure it out.

here’s the file : my transition fla

Thanks :toad:
