In the main timeline, make the third layer and call it “helpers”. There we will place 2 helping movie clips; “director” and “update”. Place them off the stage, because they will be helpers only and we do not have to see them. After finishing movie, you could hide them behind the images. Make movie clip ‘update’ on the same way as we made “mc”, use rectangle tool, select it, press F8, name it “update”, then right click it, name it “update” in Instance Option name box, right click again and choose edit in place. In the “update” movie clip timeline make 3 key frames and assign actions on them; 1st frame action; STOP. It will wait there ‘till called . 2nd frame action:
Begin Tell Target ("../")

Set Variable: "update" = getProperty("mc",_x)-click

End Tell Target
3rd frame: go to frame 2 and Play

» 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.
