Is it possible to set up a Flash banner (this if for offline use) that displays text that is in a txt file.

Basicaly I want a Flash banner that displays various messages that fade in and out that can be changed from a .txt file rather than having to go into .fla every time I want to change them

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

yea.
See LoadVars class and createTextField function.
Or just create a movieclip with a dynamic field inside it and export it for actionscript, then attach it anytime you need it.
Remember of font embeding if you use non-system fonts.
For fadeIn, fadeOut, see this post
