    unload issues (time sensitive)

    bbqdevil
      i'm putting together a piece that calls movies to the stage in order. each movie is loaded from an external file to a target on the main stage, plays, and is then unloaded.

      it works with the first 5 movies, but numbers 6 and 7 both go to a black screen when the movie is finished loading and that's it.

      I'm using very simple code:
      loadMovie("data/ADIDAS_1000.swf", "adidas_single_target");
      to place the clip, and using
      unloadMovie("adidas_single_target");
      to remove it.

      any ideas? I'm supposed to deliver the final files by 8am tomorrow morning, so any quick turnarounds would be extremely helpful.

          no idea, there is way too many thing that can go wrong, done on your end, thing
          we can't possibly guess from here based on description "does not work, goes black..."

          What is in these loaded files ?

            they are .swf files of animated photographs.

            what i mean by "it goes black" is that the movie will play, and at the end of the clip, when it should go to a menu (which the first 5 go to), the player instead just turns....well, black.

            if i cut and paste the sections that are problematic into a new file, it works fine, it just doesn't work when placed in the order with the rest of them.

              can you upload somewhere the problematic file for us to check ?

                Or you need to reset variables if you are using for loading swf.
