Frames 2 & 3 - The Central Script (cont) waitstart - The "waitstart" status only occurs when a new movie is loaded, therefore this is where we switch to the "Start Effect" button, position the movie, and update the effect title text field with the appropriate value, depending on which movie is loaded (hence the check of the "movie" variable). Since the "movie" variable is stored within the button Movie Clip, I opted to put the whole thing in a big "Tell Target" statement which points to "/buttons".
    If (status eq "waitstart")
        Begin Tell Target ("/buttons")
            Go to and Stop ("start")
                Set Property ("_level1", X Position) = 30
                Set Property ("_level1", Y Position) = 105
                If (movie = 1)
                    Set Variable: "/:title" = "Effect 1 - Fold In and Out"
                Else If (movie = 2)
                    Set Variable: "/:title" = "Effect 2 - Green Streak"
                Else If (movie = 3)
                    Set Variable: "/:title" = "Effect 3 - Red Stix"
                Else If (movie = 4)
                    Set Variable: "/:title" = "Effect 4 - Elastic Shimmer"
                Else If (movie = 5)
                    Set Variable: "/:title" = "Effect 5 - Coming to get you"
                End If
            End Tell Target
      End If

» 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.
