Preloader not showing until fully loaded..?

Hello all!

 

I'm having trouble with my preloader, it seems to not be working. What happens is that, when I simulate the download, my flash window just stays continues to be the background color, and then after it fully loads, switches over to my preloader frame. I'm sorry if any of this doesn't make sense, as I am new to Flash and all of the lingo

    if you're using timeline coding, typically your preloader only would be in frame 1 along with the code to animate your preloader display and furnish load-progress info to the user.  nothing else should be in frame 1.

     

    if you do that, your preloader will be displayed AFTER all assets marked for export in frame 1.  ie, if you have embedded font(s), objects with classes etc

     

    if you have a lot of assets exporting in frame 1, you will need to either change that export frame or make an external preloader (a main swf with preloader only that loads your current swf minus the preloader).

    yes, it is but that's irrelevant.

     

    the issue is what loads before your preloader and i listed those items in the 2nd paragraph in message 1.  do those things apply?
