Quick into - for my honours degree Im building an animated/interactive world which will never be for web deployment.
Ive used flash & AS2 as its delivery platform & would like it to autorun from an HTML5 file - from CD/DVD (or SD card)
It takes around a minute or so to load on my tutors machine & obviously she has to double click the HTML file & then wait until the main stuff starts.
Tonight I tried to create a preloader (as you would for a website) because Id like to add a few quotes to that blank white space while the rest loads (over 60MB) & have hit some problems -
So, questions -
If its never for web, do I create a preloader & if so, how do I explain to Flash that download is irrelevent? The minute I add a simple preloader its throwing up the "script you have is causing to run slowly abort yes/no" etc error -
Im thinking a projector file is the answer but have never done this, or created an auto run type thing...
I wanted a "preloader" - ie, intro so that I can add those couple of quotations before the main stuff begins...
All help so gratefully received!
If this is going to be a locally run file then you should not need a preloader nor should it take very long to start. Chances are you need to work on the design/coding of the file if you are getting a minute of delay for it to start.
You shoul dnot need an html file to play it.
You should probably create a projector file so that there is no issue with anyone needing the Flash Player.
