Hello - building my first site. created a preloader.fla and
also a master.fla that i want the preloader to load into.
1. when i preview just the preloader file, it starts
displaying my flash page before the progress bar is complete.
2. when i preview my master file, the preloader does not
work, but 2 splash pages load on top of each other.
my actionscript for my preloader is:
var myMCL:MovieClipLoader = new MovieClipLoader();
var myListener:Object = new Object();
can anyone see right off hand what my problem(s) are? also,
i've gotten to this point with online tutorials and books and it
would be most appreciative if you could reply in as simple as
possible newbie terms - thx developers!
Do you know what is necessary (content size, bandwidth,
number of frames etc) to make your Movie require a preloader?

Did you set the streaming in Test Movie mode to a very low
bps if you have no content in the movie to warrant streaming or did
you place large amounts of content to force a slower load while
Are you simulating live and your movie is cached or is the
bandwidth you have very high speed?
Are you placing trace statements in each of the event
handlers for MovieClipLoader to be sure you see them fire and when?
They may not fire in the expected order depending on how the movie
is played (in IDE w or w/o streaming simulated, from HD, over
