Click prior to complete animation causes clip to disappear

Hi

www.MyDomain.com

If u enter the flash version, and skip the intro sequence (allowing the main interface to load) and as the main interface page is animating after preload, and you click on any button before the animation is completed, the entire interface disappears.

Any ideas?

Thanks
Aidan

Try commenting the unload movie:

on (release) {
     //_root.Mstage.container_tv.unloadMovie();
     _root.Mstage.content.gotoAndPlay("manufacturers");
     _root.Mstage.newboats.gotoAndPlay("1");
}

It depends on what the buttons do..

all the buttons direct to a CONTENT clip contained in the swf - no external loads etc - so mouseover any main button should bring up submenu items, and clicking from them either links to other HTML pages, or links internally to the CONTENT clip.

however, it seems only I am able to get this wierd event to happen - i asked a couple other viewers, and they had no such issue

How do you link to the internal CONTENT clip? You see, sometimes, if the target of an attachMovie or a loadMovie is not defined, the clip being attached or loaded is placed in the movie  main timeline (deleting everything else)...

a typical link to the content clip from the buttons at page top is: (eg manufacturers)

on (release) {
      _root.Mstage.container_tv.unloadMovie();
      _root.Mstage.content.gotoAndPlay("manufacturers");
      _root.Mstage.newboats.gotoAndPlay("1");
}

container_tv is an empty clip to which the only other external swf loads - only required for information/directions

the script for the directions button is as follows:

on (release) {
      _root.Mstage.container_tv.unloadMovie();
      _root.Mstage.content.gotoAndStop("1");
      _root.Mstage.information.gotoAndPlay("1");
      _root.Mstage.container_tv.loadMovie("BAYPINES.swf");
}

are u saying that the empty clip could be placed onscreen, deleting everything else?

thanks a lot
