These files are not mentioned in the book.
ActionScript 3 is radically different from Actionscript 1 or 2. Most of the script in the book works fine with ActionScript 2. You can set the ActionScript version either when you start a new file in Flash, or later by opening Publish Settings and changing it there, under the tab labeled "Flash."
For some basic tasks in Flash journalism, I have created a tutorial FLA (saved for Flash CS3; will work in CS4 also) that contains the ActionScript 3 script for you to copy and paste.
Everything is in the FLA file. Download, open, view script and comments in the Actions panel.
*This is the same MP3 file. If you want to use one of your own without changing the script, then change the name of your MP3 to "guitar.mp3"; make sure the MP3 is inside the same folder with the FLA when you test it.
