To make use of this Fail-safe:

I strongly recommend informing your client in writing before taking any action, and keeping a dated file copy for yourself.

When ever you start a new project, add this line into the first keyframe of the first part of the movie:

Fill in the blanks on your letter template, make a copy, SEND IT, note on your copy the url of you called in the "loadMovie" action above.

If (god forbid) you ever have to disable a site, all you have to do is copy your TestFailure.swf to the location (and filename, note case sensitivity) that you noted on your file copy of the payment letter.

Note: If you do multiple projects for one client you will have to give each project a new url. Otherwise uploading the failure swf file will disable all of them. Although in some situations this may be more effective, it will also increase your chances of a law suit.

Hopefully, you will never have to upload your Payment Failure file. Unfortunately, sooner or later you more then likely will. This can clearly be seen in the content of "Flash Kit Community" > "Job Vacancies" message boards.

Good Luck.

» 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.
