    preloader script

    Level 7
      I am new to scripting, so this is probably a pretty easy fix. I have the
      following code for my preloader:

      onClipEvent (load) {
      total = _parent.getBytesTotal();
      }

      onClipEvent (enterFrame) {
      loaded = _parent.getBytesLoaded();
      percent = int(loaded/total*100);
      perc1 = ""+percent+"%";
      gotoAndStop(percent);
      if (loaded == total) {
      _parent.gotoAndPlay(2);
      }
      }

      As of now, the clip loads fine in another swf, but I want the clip to start
      playing before is has fully been loaded so that it cuts down on the time the
      viewer has to wait, say at 75% loaded, or 65% for example. How would I change
      the above code?

      Also, how would I change it to reflect in the percentage as well, for example,
      if it starts playing when it is really 65% loaded, how would the code change to
      show that it is fully loaded, in the percentage and the full loading bar, even
      though it really isn't...

      Does that make sense? Thanks for the help.
