Hey all, this is my first time posting on these forums, I am fairly new to Director, and am making a basic program for my Software design class. (Due in 2 days!!)
This is my problem, I was having trouble coding a button that i wanted to move on mouse enter and move back on mouseleave. I got that workign fine, however after rejoicing at my minor accimplishment, I went to try the entire program from the beginning and found that for some reason my movie would no longer play. I had the sound working fine, but the score would not go any further than frame 1.
When i manually drag the curser thing along the script, i see the animation play fine, so it isnt a problem with that and when i manually go to a fram that loops, i can use buttons etc with no problems, its just that the movie itself WILL NOT PLAY.
However when i go to the options and disable scripts, the movie plays fine, (Except the scripts dont work, obviously). This tells me it must be a problem with one of my scripts.
Now I ask you all this in desperation, is there anything you can think of I may have accidentally included in my scripts that would stop the movies animations from playing? OR is there any thing i can do to work this out for myself??
Also one more question how do i make a variable say for example Global "Boat" equal to the currently selected option in a list. As in one of the pre included flash component lists?? for instance a list with the labels 1,2,3,4,5 and the corresponding data 1,2,3,4,5??
Thx any help mush appreciated.
(Yes I know i also posted this int he other Lingo Forums, and i apologise, but i am desperate to get this problem sorted out)
I'm going to take a guess that you have the following code in a behavior attached to one of your sprites:
go the frame
The above would cause exactly what you're experiencing. Where ever the sprite appears, the movie will be in 'paused' mode because the script is telling Director to loop in the current frame. So, check what you have attached to all your sprites.
For the variable question, are you unsure how to use variables and lists in Director? I have info on variable types at: and lists at:
