On a side note:

Some people have told me that sound doesnt play on any other level than the main movie(_level0), actually it does, the sound object (new Sound()) has an optional parameter in which you can specify a timeline, the timeline can be a movieclip, a level or _root:

mysoundobj=new Sound(_root)
If you choose to omit this parameter then the sound object is automatically created at the root of your movie(_root) but also the root of your movie on level zero(_level0) therefore i have used the "this" operator in my script above which tells the sound object to create itself on the timeline from which the script is run.

I hope this was of some use to somebody, if not then nevermind. Happy flashing peoples!

» 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.
