    Question regarding Loadimg and flash

    is it possible to load an image using the LOADIMG command on top of a flash movie? Here's basically what i wanna do. First pic is normal, second pic would be if iguidance is in guidance mode (thanks to igmod!) the image is just photoshopped for now. This would probably be easier in flash but i have NO programming skills. So what i'm doing is using an autoit script and exec.exe. Here is my code that loads the image

    Run("C:\Program Files\Road Runner\skins\MC2.5\exec.exe LOADIMG;170;127;205;200;600.jpg;OUT")

    Code works.. but image appears under the flash. Label still displays tho!

    Because flash goes on top of everything, you'd have to do it in flash. Other than that, all I can suggest you is that you make a discardable menu screen (as a popup) and run the command to load it when necessary -- it would display centered and on top of everything else. Then the same popup could use the TIMER event to close itsefl after a few seconds. This shouldn't be very hard to do, but let me know if you can't figure it out.

    Question: Can he get the graphic in the right position if he creates a full pink image with 4 one-pixel dots on the corner edges and the image in right place? I'm not sure if RR can act like this?


    EDIT: Sonicxtacy02, your webpage crashed my computer. lol

    yes, if you make that pink transparency for the empty image it will work. you don't need the 4 pixels though.. RR centers the screen by the original size and not by the resulting transparent window. You don't even have to have the full screen size, just enough to be centered at the desired position (because menus will always be centered).

    So this should work too:

    i got it working (sorta) the non-flash way but i'm gonna attempt to do it in flash now as it does seem like the cleaner solution. I have the basic elements and tweens down now i just need to learn the scripting. I guess i should ask before i start if its possible to put a flash movie on top of another flash movie. Else i'll have to add it to the main.swf already on the skin.

    flash guru's ... i need your help!

    I'm having no luck doin actionscript. All i really need is to check if iguidance.exe is running. If so have the graphic in the "down" position, if not have have it in the up position (out of the stage area hence invisible). The Play() command makes the graphic just loop as if its in the test movie window.

    FD already has inbuilt indicators / eta / etr which only appear if routing with freedrive.. I will make the file available if anyone wants to play. Please remember MC was one of my first attempts with flash, so its not the cleanest of coding.. let me know if you want it and I will post it in the first post of the ~MC1.0 post
