Password Problem

Password Problem

Password Problem

I am creating a cd rom and have set up a password facility for different areas, basically i have two passwords, each loading a different movie after being validated.
I was just wondering how I would go about doin this.
If you look at my script i have accomplished this by just having one password and it will go to the frame i want it to go to.

on enterframe

global gAccessRestriction

gAccessRestriction = [#bracknell["usa","promise"], #promise["promise"], #usa["usa"]]


on exitFrame me

go to the frame


property pField

property pSprite

property pValidChars

global gPassword

on beginSprite me

pSprite = sprite(me.spriteNum)

gPassword = ""

pField = pSprite.member.name

put "" into field pField

pValidChars = "0123456789abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz_"


on enterFrame me

keyPress = the keyPressed

if validate(me,keyPress) then

update me

end if


on validate me, theChar

case theChar of


if gPassword.length > 0 then

delete the last char of gPassword

end if


if offset(theChar,pValidChars) then

gPassword = gPassword & theChar

return true


return false

end if

end case


on update me

tBullets = ""

repeat with x = 1 to gPassword.length

tBullets = tBullets & "*"

end repeat

put tBullets into field pField


global gAccessList, gAccessRestriction, gPassword

on mouseUp me

if gPassword = "" then

alert " Please enter Password OR contact Nabi to get the Password"


end if

if validPassword(me, gPassword) then

gAccessList = gAccessRestriction[symbol(gPassword)]

put "" into field "Password"

gPassword = ""

go to movie "login.dcr"


alert "Password does not match, contact Nabi!!"

put "" into field "Password"

gPassword = ""

end if


on validPassword me, thePassword

definedPasswords = field("PredefinedPasswords")

repeat with x = 1 to definedPasswords.length

if thePassword = definedPasswords.word[x] then

return true

end if

end repeat

return false


on mouseWithin me

cursor 280


on mouseLeave me

cursor -1


how can I have 2 passwords and each of them load a different movie??

I hope some one can help!!
