Had a look around for tutorials on how to make a 'no. of days' countdown on the web, but didn't have much luck.
Anyway, figured it out, so hope this helps anyone having the same problem.
Just paste this code on the first frame of your flash movie:
t_now = new Date();//2005, 3, 14, 0, 0, 0, 0);
now_date = t_now.getDate();
now_month = t_now.getMonth();
now_year = t_now.getFullYear();
then_date = 14;
then_month = 2;
if ((now_month == then_month && now_date > then_date)
|| (now_month > then_month))
then_year = now_year+1;
then_year = now_year;
t_then = new Date(then_year, then_month, then_date, 0, 0, 0, 0);
days_till_then = Math.ceil((t_then-t_now)/(1000*60*60*24));
if (days_till_then > 0)
trace("There are "+days_till_then+" days till valentines day on your local pc");
trace("Happy Valentines Day!");
//trace(now_date+" "+now_month+" "+now_year)
//trace(then_date+" "+then_month+" "+then_year)
't_now' is the date today (though could be changed via the commented out bit after the declaration to another date if necessary)
The bits you will probably want to change are 'then_date' and 'then_month', as this sets the date you want to check today against.
The last 'if/else' bit with the traces is where you might want to put some action for the big day, or read out of the no. of days to go.
