Flash Color Quiz: What's Your Mood?
To move my animation beyond the intro movie clip and start the quiz, I used an on (release) and gotoAndPlay attached to an invisible hotspot movie clip that overlaps the area of my intro animation that I want to be clickable:
on (release) { 
_root.gotoAndPlay(2); 
}

Note that I used _root in front of my gotoAndPlay? Since we're talking about the main timeline, just using the gotoAndPlay on a movie clip would confuse Flash just a touch, as it wouldn't be sure if you were referring to the movie clip timeline or the main stage's timeline.

Please note: code is not meant to be copied directly. Page template issues and formatting may automatically convert some symbol characters to formatted/HTML equivalents, and they won't work properly when pasted into Flash. Please use this code as guidelines to write your own.
