I have already asked a similar question but the answer wasn't quite what I actually needed.

I have a html web page that loads up four swf files.  One of these files is a basic audio player, but I don't want it to start until the other three files have been downloaded and have started to run.

If someone could help me out it would be really appreciated.

Basically the audio player needs to receive a message from all three other SWFs...  You'd need to use LocalConnection class for it...

So, your audio player will have a counter that is initially set to 0, and then adds up whenever you receive a message from other SWF, and then play the audio when it reaches to 3...

This example shows you how to set up the LocalConnection...
