I am creating a preloader that will be a countdown: 10, 9,
8... My idea is to place the numbers on separate frames with an
action at each of those frames telling it to go to the next
number/frame after a certain number of frames in the animation has
downloaded, allowing the timeline to advance to each number along
the way. The action for the number 1 will be to play the main
animation because at that point the whole file would be loaded.
I looked in the Flash Help and online for tutorials. The only
script I can find is (this._framesloaded<this._totalframes) I
don't want total frames for the number 10. I want it to advance to
my number 9 when frame 20 is loaded, then advance to my number 8
when frame 40 is loaded, etc.
Can someone point me somewhere to find out this answer, or
guide me here in the forum?
