I have added this code to my button that controls a small
audio file, my problem is that when you click play, it starts to
play for a quick second, cuts off and then plays the whole file. I
have just added a very small part of the song as i am still testing
if you wish to see what i mean please click on the below link
and then go to production.
Can i also ask, when you log onto the site, while it is
loading a white screen appears then disapers when loaded!!!
Anyone know why this is, and what can i do to make it go
Now a small preloader problem, i made a preloader and put it
onto scene 1, then once data is loaded it plays from scene 2, frame
1. My issue is that it seems to add longer for the site to load and
also, the preloader does not imdeiately start playing when you type
in the URL and wait. You still get the small bar from the normal
windows loading status, one at bottom right of page, then 3/4 way
through the preloader plays for a quick second then loads the home
page which is correct but most sites in flash immediately play the
prelodader while loading the site.
Here is a small part of my code
//setting up variables to display
//percentage loaded in the text box.
loaded_bytes = Math.round(_root.getBytesLoaded());
loaded_total = Math.round(_root.getBytesTotal());
total_percent = (loaded_bytes/loaded_total)*100;
_root.loaded_text = Math.round(total_percent);
//We apply the code to make the text change its
//X position according to the position of progress
startpoint = bar._x
_root.text._x = startpoint + (_root.bar._currentframe*2.5);
from first glance i would say its the music downloading. I
think you should look around on preloading sound files, becaus they
can be quite sneaky as they are not apart of the intual download,
wait... thats if the file is inside flash, sorry, but it still a
good idea to make a sound preloader, so do some googling and see
what you find.
Your preloader, i have seen before. I had the same problem.
Hopefully your using AS2 not sure on AS3 but going in to the
publish settings, next to the actionscript version there is a
button saying "settings", click on it and another window will open.
Inside there should be somethinf like Export AS2 classes and a
number. Change the number to the fram after your preloader. You
should put a blank keyframe after the last frame of your preloader.
The goto bit won't need to change as it will all be loaded. So when
it gets to the end of your preloader and goes to scene 2 frame 1
the classes will be loaded.
