This is another way to update your Flash content on the go. First, create an actionsript file and save it as "actions.as". Place it in the same folder or directory as your .fla and .swf files. Now create a new blank Flash Document. Put whatever in the first frame. In the next frame, put something else. In the second frame's action, type in: stop() In the first frame's actions, type in: #include "action.as" When you you check the syntax, it'll probably aay that it can't read the file, but we'll fix that. Go into your .as file and type in: stop(); Republish your fla file and it will stop on the first frame. Now, go back into the the .as file and replace the stop() action with: play(); When you republish your .fla, it will now go to the second frame. The advantage to using the include function is that the .as file can be changed using notepad or anybasic text editing program. The downside is that when you update the .as you have to republish the movie for it to register.

» 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.
