Help a flash movie that will read an external text file, reverse the text and scroll the text with different speeds..
The solution must reverse letters like reading in mirror.I mean the letters of text are rotated 180 degree.
This question was asked before.But its answer can not seen because the given url is lost.Can you help me urgently.
Watch Question

mirrors dont rotate letters 180 degrees!? They flip them horizontally. Just set your text instance name to, say, 'myTxt', then use myTxt._xscale = -100 (make sure your fonts are embedded first though) - that would display the text as if it were in a mirror.

Not the solution you were looking for? Getting a personalized solution is easy.

I can tell you how to load details from text file to flash.

1.) Create a Text box. (Dynamic Text, Multiline)'
     Give instance name as "myText".

2.) Put following action script on you first frame.
     System.useCodepage = true;
     myLoadVars = new LoadVars();
     myLoadVars.onData = function(_data)
     if (_data != undefined)
          myText.htmlText = _data;
     } else
          trace("loading fails...");

3.) Then create a text file in the same folder name as "mydata.txt" . Then enter the details which you want to show in the txt box.
