I need to make an FLA that grabs JPGs externaly - which I know how to do - but the trick is: I need to have either a TXT file, or an XML file that tells the Flash which JPGs to load into the flash, and I know nothing about XML. Can anyone help me? Could anyone tell me some steps to do this, give me a link to a tutorial with a similar topic, or a sample file?

Thank you so much!
PS: If my explanation of what I need to do was confusing, let me explain it again. I need to easily upgrade a Flash file through manipulating it with an XML file or a TXT file, so that I can edit the pictures in it simply by changing the XML or TXT file, w/out going into Flash.

this isn't going to tell you how to exactly that, but it will certainly enlighten you a bit on using
xml in flash and will give you a better background as to what you're getting into.
