I am currently working on a small game that is similar to
Mystery Case Files, but much simpler for my kids. The game is
working as I want it, but I would like to go back and make some of
my code more efficient. I am trying to get the instance name of a
movieclip, change the name slightly and then use that value to
control a similar movie clip.
I have used trace to make sure that it picked up the instance
name OK, and it does - it spits out pigletlge, which is the name of
the other movie clip. Out of the two lines of code that begin with
"if", the first works, but the second doesn't. I would have thought
that, since the variable seems to hold the same value as the name
of the other movie clip, then the two lines would do exactly the
same thing. I have tried explicitly making the variable a string,
but that doesn't seem to help.
Anyone got any ideas, or am I missing something really
