Frames 2 & 3 - The Central Script

Frame 2 contains the actions that occur when the movie's status changes. We will we will go through the actionscript a block at a time:

Check for status change - All of the actions in frame 2 are dependent on a status change, so the first thing we do is update our "status" variable and check to see if it has changed since the last time the loop was run:

Set Variable: "status" = _level1:status
If (status ne status_old)
End If

Update status text field - If the status has changed, we update the status text field (named "effect"), then go through another gauntlet of IF tests to see what the status is now. I will discuss each of these test individually.

Set Variable: "effect" = status

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
