I am currently assigned to a project that is an old
application written for Flash Player 6.0 and in AS 1.
I have got this application up and running to an acceptable
level and then became a requirement for menus inside the
application. So I built the menus as separate files in Flash 8.0
that I load into the old application using LoadMovie, so in effect
I have Flash 6.0 AS1 and Flash 8.0 AS2 content running inside Flash
Player 9.0....hope this makes sense.
Anyway my concern is this, when the user is inside the
application and navigates back to the start using one of the
buttons in the newer menus, I am unloading all movies loaded using
LoadMovie I am unloading them using unloadMovie. The playhead of
the old AS1 movie then goes to and plays a couple of frames before
it calls LoadMovie again.
The trouble that some movies do not seem to be reloaded or
should I say unloaded....its very confusing I know!!
All these Movies are being loaded into "dummyClips" which are
just an instance of a blank movie clip in my library......is this a
bad thing to do?
So what happens if the playhead moves off the frames where
these dummyclips exist and they have movies Loaded into them?
Hopefully you can tell what I am doing, which in the most
part is working, there just seems to be the odd random case where
somethign will screw up, which of course are the worst bugs of
