I have been trying for ages without much luck to make a 'Credits Ticker'.

What i would like to be able to do is to create a flash movie that loads html from a text file and then scrolls it up continuosly in the movie. When it reaches the end it starts all over again.

(like film credits)

If anyone knows how, please help

I am using flash 5

yes i can help you! but why not just embed the text within flash instead of using external file with your news?
