is it the movieclip button whose on(release) you showed the same movieclip that's "existing" in a frame where you don't want it?
if yes, it exists there whether you use swapDepths() or not. you may not see it on the other frame when you don't use swapDepths() but it's there.
to remedy, use swapDepths() to move it back to a lower depth where it's not visible when on that other frame.
thankyou for the advice, i tried something else tho, changing the depth when i clicked one of the navigation buttons, that seemed to work. but unfortunately i now have another problem!
in another movieclip on my main timeline "casefile"
I again have smaller movieclips inside. however, these movieclips have an empty first frame, only 'appearing' by checking for a declared variable which sends it to the second frame. on the second frame, an invisible button allows the user to see a magnified version of the small movieclip by going to the larger version, placed on the third frame. In essence it is an inventory, the objects only appearing when they are 'found' elsewhere in the project.
Again, I have stacking problems, but this time I am having problems applying the swapDepth script. I can only apply it to the invisible button in the second frame as the movieclip's first frame is empty and not meant to be clicked by the user. i have tried targetting;
but this doesn't appear to work.
for main exposure, i'll post this as a new thread as well :d
