Scott,

The question is rather how do you overide a frontscript?...

In general and in most situations a local item overides a global 
counterpart.

If i have a card script and an equal stack (or bg) script, the card script 
is the
first to run... 

Maybe I got the frontscript wrong... And that script shouldn't be there 
but still
im surprised of the behavior...
