the set properties further down the time line...thanks for your code
though....its easier to deal with :) Branden you stud you :) JK

load variables requires time to load the variables, thats why its not
working.

Here's some F5 centric code that does exactly what you need... attach it to
the movie clip its self...

//This loads the variables into this MC when the MC is first loaded
onClipEvent(load){
this.loadVariabes("var.txt");
}

//This gets run whenever new data is loaded into the MC
onClipEvent(data){
if (movie2 == 2){
this._visible = false;
}
}
