inside Quiz.swf, you might be pointing to _root a lot, which is going to cause problems. Whenever you load a movie inside of another movie, Flash thinks that the movie that loaded the other one is the _root, so any pointers to _root from the loaded movie will be wrong.

There's two ways to fix this, the first way being easiest:

1. Put this._lockroot = true; on your first frame of Quiz.swf, and any references to _root will point to the _root of Quiz.swf

2. You could also make a global variable on the first frame, like so:
_global.quiz = this;

That way, you can change anywhere where you say _root to quiz, and it should work, if that's the problem.


Definitely try solution #1 first, since it doesn't require nearly as much code.
