So, I have a site www.TableTalkComics.com where I am using
the loader component to bring in external files for my comic.
Here's where my problem is. Currently all of the episodes are
loading once the site is opened. What I want to do is make it is so
each episode has a preloader, and that the episode won't load until
the appropriate frame has been active for 1.5 seconds.
For example if I have a comic in frame 9, another in frame 10
and a third in frame 11. My current AS sends you immediately to
frame 11 (ie current episode). So, after 1 - 1.5 seconds a
preloader pops up (when needed -- slower connections) then the
comic appears when fully loaded. At the same time frames 9 and 10
haven't loaded yet because they haven't been active/open/viewed
yet. So, when someone hits the previous button once, a second later
the comic begins to load.
So, if the above is making sense -- here's my question. How
do I do this. I have read some of the tutorials on preloaders and
telling the loader component when to load, but it's all Japanese to
me (no offense to anyone). So, with some examples, how would I go
about this? Thanks for your help!
