"the dynamic text linked to those variables wont show the changes until the flash movie either changes to a different scene, or a new movie is loaded into the main movie."
you could use some sort of interval or onEnterFrame to refresh this
How do you use onEnterFrame to refresh dynamic text?
OK, I decided to move the dynamic text boxes into the main movie. I had to remove the _global. part of the variables though. It seems that dynamic text boxes can't find _global. variables if they're in the same movie. Unfortunately, removing the _global. parts means I can't get actions in the loaded movies to alter the variables in the main movie. How do I get an action in a loaded movie to change a variable in the main movie without having _global. in front of the variables? If that isn't possible how do I get the dynamic text boxes to find _global. variables when they're all in the same movie? Would it help if I put up a zip of the files I'm working on somewhere and post a link to it here? That way you all can see what I'm trying to do.
