in an effort to keep my file size down i am utilizing the
loadMovie function for areas with large file sizes, however, i am
runnign into problems with the positioning of the loaded movie. I
am able to move the button of the movie clip so that the button is
in the top left corner of what i where i would like the movie to
be. That is not working, it is still trying to center the movie on
the screen. Any help?
> you can manipulate loaded movies via the _level

> this.loadMovieNum("my_movie.swf", 1); // loading a movie
> now i can target the level.
> _level1._x = 50;
> _level1._y = 50;

> _level1.myMovieClip._x = 50;
> whatever you want.

target it. so use
> preloaders to be safe.
so, to avoid the wait and executing action prematurely, all
you need to do
is place this._x=50; and this._y=50; on the first frame of
the loaded movie.
It will position itself automatically while loading.
Happy New Year guys - all the best there is in the 2006 :)
