just a few more actions in the main scene

go to the main scene and in the first frame add this

// this adds the map to 0 x 0
attachMovie( "mapcontainer" ,"map", 1 );
setProperty (_root.map, _x, "0");
setProperty (_root.map, _y, "0");

this adds the mapcontainer to 0x0

in the second frame

Add this for the movement of the man clip

// the movement actions
if (Key.isDown(Key.UP) and _root.cangoup == true) {
    _root.map.man._y = _root.map.man._y-20;
if (Key.isDown(Key.DOWN) and _root.cangodown == true) {
    _root.map.man._y = _root.map.man._y+20;
if (Key.isDown(Key.LEFT) and _root.cangoleft == true) {
    _root.map.man._x = _root.map.man._x-20;
if (Key.isDown(Key.RIGHT) and _root.cangoright == true) {
    _root.map.man._x = _root.map.man._x+20;

this controls the man and has the cango vars in to stop him moving through walls

And finally add this to frame 3

gotoAndPlay (2);

There that is it test your movie then play about with the map variables

» 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.
