    Yep. I'm a noob.

    But at least I had a process, in which I could make whatever I wanted.

    But now, no.
    AS3 has come along and pooped in my machine. And Adobe sits there like 'hu, what?'

    Some of you think it's awesome, powerful, great... Well... I totally disagree.
    I'd rather have the OPTION of using AS2 or 3 for a phone app... But no. Only AS3 can be used to make an app.

    So, I have this template which has 3 buttons. 1 works, it goes to a URL.
    All I want, is 1 button to play a sound, the other to stop it, while also going through frames. You'll see, I've labeled them too, just to make it easier.
    I've also duplicated the code for 'touch events' if that's even needed? Or can mouse event also be used as touch? Might be a silly question, but hey.

    (I couldn't attach, because it's 70kb over the limit. My life is fun, 24/7.)

    All of this is doing my head in. Now I just want to become an alcoholic & forget all of this.
    Every tutorial or 'pro' seems to be... hmm, how should I put it... A tight ***? Or maybe not. They just can't explain simple processes. Some people explain things backwards, which I can't stand.

    Ahh **** it who cares.


    ""request" inside the new Sound() constructor needs to be a URLRequest pointing to the mp3 file you want to play. I should have made that clear." - from another site..

    Ok, so... I have to tell flash to URL request the actual mp3 file name, internally, as well as give it linkage & a button an instance name to go with it.

    That to me, is stupid. It's like... 'Double handling'. If anyone knows what that is, I'm sure you'd understand. Basically... It's a waste of time!

    That didn't work either btw.

    Here's my code now:


    var mySound:trol1 = new trol1();

    var clapsChannel:SoundChannel = new SoundChannel();

    but_2.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, playSound);
    but_1.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, stopSound)

    function playSound(e:MouseEvent):void

    function stopSound(e:MouseEvent):void
    var myChannel:SoundChannel = new SoundChannel();

    function click1(evt:MouseEvent):void {

    function click2(evt:MouseEvent):void {


    function goThere(e:MouseEvent){
    var request:URLRequest = new URLRequest("http://www.google.com/");


    but_1.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, click1);
    but_2.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, click2);

    function onTouchBegin1(event:TouchEvent) {


    function onTouchBegin2(event:TouchEvent) {

    but_1.addEventListener(TouchEvent.TOUCH_BEGIN, onTouchBegin1);
    but_2.addEventListener(TouchEvent.TOUCH_BEGIN, onTouchBegin2);
