Restart actionscript movie

Hello

I have been building an actionscript2 movie and as i'm a novice i've got a bit stuck, I'm using setTime to bring in elements of the movie and when the last element has entered I need the movie to start again, it's all done in frame 1. Any help would be great!! I've attached my script.
stop();

setTimeout(this, "movieenter1", 0000);
setTimeout(this, "cog1enter", 1000);
setTimeout(this, "cog2enter", 1000);
setTimeout(this, "cog3enter", 1000);
setTimeout(this, "current_text", 2000);
setTimeout(this, "current_text_exit", 19000);
setTimeout(this, "sim_text", 9000);
setTimeout(this, "crm_text", 11000);
setTimeout(this, "comp_text", 13000);

Haven't tried this, 'cause creating the environment could prove to be tough (if you attach your fla this would be easier), but this might be the solution. This creates an interesting loop that should work, but otherwise we might have to try a different approach (like, not using setTimeout at all).

<code>

-V
stop();

import mx.transitions.Tween;
import mx.transitions.easing.*;

setTimeouts();

function setTimeouts():Void {
  setTimeout(this, "movieenter1", 0000);
  setTimeout(this, "cog1enter", 1000);
  setTimeout(this, "cog2enter", 1000);
  setTimeout(this, "cog3enter", 1000);
  setTimeout(this, "current_text", 2000);
  setTimeout(this, "current_text_exit", 19000);
  setTimeout(this, "sim_text", 9000);
  setTimeout(this, "crm_text", 11000);
  setTimeout(this, "comp_text", 13000);
  setTimeout(this, "sim_text_exit", 17000);
  setTimeout(this, "crm_text_exit", 17000);
  setTimeout(this, "comp_text_exit", 17000);
  setTimeout(this, "bar_movie", 8000);
  setTimeout(this, "bar_movie_exit", 19000);
  setTimeout(this, "bar2_movie", 20000);
  setTimeout(this, "setTimeouts", 25000);
}

function movieenter1() {
//... etc, all the other stuff follows

Hi Vulturous, thanks for the help.

I see what your trying to do with the loop, It does restart the animation however not all the functions seem to restart and it overlaps in an odd way. I think if there was a way to reset all the functions as it finished then your solution would work.

I've added my flash file for you. Still a bit raw i'm afraid

okay, all I did was to reset any animation functions such as alpha or scale back to the original state before the animation played again, that way when it restarted everything was in the right order. then it played correctly, probably not the best way around it but it works.

I assumed something like that could happen, that's why I needed the fla :P

Anyway, glad you got it sorted, I'll keep monitoring this question just in case you need anything else.
