External SWF loader
Posted on 2004-04-14
I'm searching for a way to load some of my old flash movies into a single loader program. I'm creating a demo file which will have links to all of my flash works. The problem is a lot of my older scripts use _root in the code. This will probably lead to problems because it will be looking for variables in the wrong places if i use the loader component to bring my old movies into the timeline of the main movie.
Is there a way I can use the new screens/forms feature of flash MX 2004 to trick it into using the correct _root for my movie clips, by loading my movies into a seperate screen/form? I don't want to have to go back and edit these old flash files just so i can put them into my demo program.
