I was wondering, at what point do you think they are loading
their swfs and also, are these external swfs or are they all
contained within that one project? It would seem to me that once
you're at the map and you can see the little green markers, then
everything is being loaded. However, after you click on one of the
markers it will zoom in and, apparently, load some more data. I'm
assuming this second go round it's loading the text and other
images. So if I'm doing a pretty much identical site should I just
have a bunch of markers that load external images or...what? i'm
trying to do this project for school but my professor has never
worked with flash so he can't help me. Any advice would be greatly
appreciated, thank you.
the main map loaded first and display
then the thumbnails are being loaded as you look,
however, the thumbnails aren't really thumbnails, they are
so, they are actually already on stage by the time you see
them popped up.
those images are external. they could be jpg or swf.
looks like this is involving mostly scripts, so i hope you're
comfortable with scripting
first, your loader would load to a certain point before it
starts showing the actual stage, in this case, the road map.
at this point, it continue on to load all those images
so it's possible to load images to a specific location
relative to the target movie clip?
like if I have a marker named "Marker1_mc" which is
essentially a big rectangle already on the stage and I want an
image at like x=25 y=100 (i just made those figures up) then what
would the code look like?
