No Prob. See what i mean about not needing script or external extensions to achieve a 3d effect? :)

make the original hud at frame 1 in flash then the second hud ("inventory") at frame two. then on frame 1 add actionscript to go to frame 2 when button is pressed. Make Sense all right?

You guys had any luck getting a level loaded and playing in the background (TrackView sequence), and then have the main menu loaded on top of that again? (On the actual Launcher startup).

Would make for a more interesting background for Main Menus.

Hi, that was an awesome tutorial. How do you remove part of the HUD that's already there, such as just the minimap?
