that looks like you're loading a carousel swf. that carousel swf has a hit area for determining when your mouse is over the carousel.
because it appears you're loading the carousel into a target movieclip that's not empty, the hit area is misplaced. to test, use an empty movieclip as the target for your load.
LOL I feel like such a newbie right now. It seems like no matter what I do, once the carousel gets called up by another swf it gets misaligned.
Without putting it all the way into the main site, I just tried to have the carousel SWF (which standalone works perfectly in its own test movie) get called up via an empty movie in another swf and it is misaligned. Again, that's without putting it into the main site.
What's weird is that if the carousel's position is 0,0 in its SWF...and the position of the empty movie is 0,0 in its SWF...things work perfectly. Obviously problem with that though is ultimately for the main site...visually the carousel is WAY up and to the left of where I would like it to appear.
(Just to avoid confusion...the carousel at ANY position within its own SWF works great. Its when it is called up that the problem takes place the further away from 0,0 it is.)
But, knowing that.... it seems to me that would indicate the problem lies in the way the carousel component was written. The further away from 0,0 it is placed the more the functions seem to scale away from the visuals.
If you would be willing to lend me expertise to help further with the actual component files, let's continue this via e-mail at chris at planetemerson dot com.
