Hey, I have been messing around with it and trying different
things but failed. I have a movie that on frame 2 has a preloader
bar only, and all I want is for it to preload an external image
called image1.gif (shows up on frame 3) and sound1.mp3 . The sound
file however only loads when I click the play button on frame 10.
How would I preload these 2 things but not play the sound file
until frame 10?
Please help, I have searched many places but I am not near
advanced enough to "expirement in mixing," it always fails.
I'm guessing that the sound file is loaded at frame 10. You
can load in a sound file at any time using the Sound.loadSound
method. Once loaded, the sound file will sit in the cache, ready
for use. Create a sound object, load the sound, then, if you like,
you can use the Sound.onLoad event to tell you that the sound has
completely loaded. Once you have the sound loaded, you can play it
whenever you like. Look at the online help example for
Sound.loadSound for more information.
