I have finally decided to get into AS 3 by practicing on some dummy examples. From what I've read so far there have been quite some changes. As I have been coding in AS2 for quite a while I find myself very often thinking in AS2 whilst coding in AS3, which can cause some problems!
The problem I'm having so far is targeting nested movie clips in another movie clip. I have not been able to find a solution despite going through my AS3 manual, Flash help and the Web.
Can somebody have a look at my fla and tell me how the path in the buttons should be written to target the relevant movie clips? I must be missing a very fundamental point for it not to work at all and the compiler throwing up 1120 errors.
