Hi Guys, well here it is:
I've been working with flash for a very long time both in as2 and 3 I recently had to re-visit a project in as2 and found something odd.
When I create a movie clip with a name: box_mc and inside I have a function ex:
trace("go has been activated")
once I go back to the root and call the function like so:
nothing happens. It has me totally stumped as I'm sure I've done this a million times what's up what is wrong.
Please help I'm going crazy, is it a setting?
the code in the first frame of box_mc executes AFTER the code in the first frame in the parent timeline that contains box_mc.
I'm such an idiot, thanks a lot. Haven't done timeline animations in a while.
