Nice tutorial!
I have a question though.
I'm using the play/stop buttons for music in my game, but I want the music to automatically play when the game starts. I still want the play and stop buttons, though. Any idea on how to have the music automatically play?
Thanks!

So that's how buttons work! They're so complicated and I know almost nothing about ActionScript, but you made it seem much easier. Of course, the code menus are a bit different in Flash 8 Professional, but now I understand the basics of buttons in Flash! Thank you and keep up the great work!

wow, that was one quick reply.
I believe the newer versions of flash only have expert mode, as long as you're able to type the code into the window, it should be fine.
