    im making a silly game in Flash MX, and it set in space.

    For my opening, i want a star field as the backdrop. I found THIS page with a good example.

    I downloaded the file, copied the frames, and pasted into a new document, but when i run the movie (ctrl+enter) it simply wont work.

    now i take it i need to make a star graphic or movieclip, but im not sure, as the page doesnt give any help, and i cant see anything in the coding, although im not enitrely sure what to look for.

    please help me get this working.

    There's actionscript on the first frame of the top layer and on the "field" movieclip itself. Why not just modify the "dot" movie to suit your needs?

    You'll note that because the dot movie isn't on the stage anywhere so it has to be set to export. This is achieved by right clicking it and selecting linkage.
