Hi,
I am trying to get the VAR counter to work on 2 or more movie clips. I want penguin 1 to ring the bell 170 times then go to "begin" fram and stop, I want penguin 2 to do the same thing (16times), but I can only get one to work, if you can help it would be great, thanks!

your problem seems more like a timing problem.
if you put some trace actions in place you might see what i'm refering to then you can fix it based on what you're trying to achieve.
the bell guy is a lot less frames then the drum guy.
each time the bell guy is looping and incrementing the counter.
by the time the drum guy gets to his frame that says check what the counter is the counter is already at 30 so the if < 16 thing won't work.
you could set 2 variables and have each one set it's own variable.
