That's about all there is to making a Flash Counter for your Flash Movie.  You can use this same script with small modifications to do a wide variety of tasks. 

Adding a Counter to your Flash Footer Note:  If for some reason you want to add a Live counter to your Flash footer follow these steps.  1) In the first frame of your Footer add this actionscript: loadVariablesNum ("http://www.yoursite.com/PHPCounter.php?ran="+random(9), 0);  - You can not load anything back into the Footer, so you have to open a new window to view the results.  In that small window that you open up - add the dynamic text box named 'Count' and the Actionscript: loadVariablesNum ("http://www.yoursite.com/PHPCounter.txt?ran="+random(9), 0);  (Notice this was the text file and not the php file).  You can make this into a Live counter by following the steps mentioned earlier.  There is really not that much use for this, but it's an easy way to learn and you get to impress people with your advanced footer right away - ha ha.

» 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.
