Dear Experts,

 I am currently using loadmovie() to show a jpg image in my project. I have 4 buttons in my project. Each button loads a jpg file into the movie. My problem is that for some reason I have to click on the button twice to get it to load the new jpg. When I click the first time the original jpg disappears. When I click again, the new jpg loads. What am I doing wrong?

on (press) {
    unloadMovie "original.jpg");

this will do in one click.
or if can show your code it will be of more help.
