The problem is that I have try to send a .fla zip but it refused.
Maybe you could give to me an email address in order that I send you the flash project?

Thanks a lot

Hi there,

Rename the filename.fla to filename.fla.txt, zip it, and upload the zip, and you should be good :)

Hi there,

To quickly answer that question, a empty movie clip can be created using this syntax:
var newClip = this.createEmptyMovieClip("the_clip", this.getNextHighestDepth());

Now, you can access the movieclip with the identifyer "newClip".
