You often encounter that you load a movie into an empty movieclip and it does not work, because in nested movieclips objects on the main timeline are referred to with _root. In order to correct this you have to enter the correct path all the time. This pathcorrector component will do it for you. Test this in the following movie where you have three options: a movie loaded by loadMovieNum in level 1 and two movies one with and one without the pathcorrector loaded into an empty movieclip using movieHolder.loadMovie("myMovie.swf");. The uploaded movie contains another movie, movie2, which has a button to regulate one of the objects in movie1. Movie2 in all cases has a pathcorrector (exactly the same as movie1 has) and the name for the empty movieclip in movie1 to upload movie2 is also "movieHolder" as in the parent movie. So in summary you are dealing here with three movies.

» Description:

The flash's horizontal road drive was done in CS4 and was upgraded to CS6. The car responds to right/ left key and flash will auto-generate the movement of roads from left-right or right-left based on random number. Have fun driving in this virtual environment and avoid other cars... :) If you are creative, a road driving game can be created from it.
