    preloader only recycles, never get to main show

    Steve Zeeeee Level 1
      Dear folks, suddenly I have a preloader that will not work.

      I dont know code enough to troubleshoot.
      Would someone kindly comment perhaps to help?

      The preloader is Scene 1.
      The Main show follows as Scene 2, Scene 3.
      That is the order in "Scenes".

      The preloader is 3 frames.
      The load bar is a Movie clip called "bar", which has a simple bar, register point left, on frame one.
      There is the appropriate dynamic text (%loaded, etc) in frame one.
      Here is the code frame one:

      lBytes = _root.getBytesLoaded();
      tBytes = _root.getBytesTotal();
      pctLoaded = Math.floor((lBytes/tBytes)*100);
      bar._xscale = pctLoaded;
      loaded._xscale = pctLoaded;
      percentText.text = "loading... "+pctLoaded+"%";
      statusText.text = "("+Math.floor(lBytes/1024)+"kb of"+Math.floor(tBytes/1024)+"kb)";

      and here is the code frame 3:

      if (_pctLoaded>10) {
      gotoAndPlay("Scene 2", "start");
      } else {
      gotoAndPlay(1);
      }

      the idea is to start the show, Scene 2, frame "start", after 10% is loaded,
      and we should see the progress bar, and kb's read out.
      But now, only the preloader continuously cycles.

      Thanks for any tips !!


      OK how about this?
      I bet frame 3: percent loaded refers only to the preloader.
      How do I get it to count scene 2?
