There is a layer with a mask above the layer with the
buttons. The mask is intended to reveal the buttons and some text
boxes after a short delay. The people who originally did this page
for us had it working, but after we opened it to change the text,
the buttons stopped showing. They still exist, however. I am able
to press the buttons while the swf is running based on where they
should be. They simply are invisible. I checked the mask, and it is
working just fine. It covers what it is supposed to, nothing is
I did find that the button displayed if the mask was not
present, but then some the actionscript originally present seems to
not work. The buttons are intially set with an opacity of 40 and
are given more when selected. When the mask is gone (which it will
not be when all is working properly), the buttons simply have the
normal _alpha setting.
The makers of the page did use some actionscript that I am
not familiar with, but it seems exclusively concerned with tweening
effects. Any thoughts?
Another thing: I tried moving the buttons out from under the
mask or even to a different location on the page. Not only can I
not see them then, they don't seem to exist at all (or if they do,
I can't click them).
I think the fla's were originally done in mx 2004 while i am
using Professional 8. Could version differences cause the problem?
Is there an easy way to check what version an fla was created with?
All I know for sure about this is that they were made with higher
