Is there Actionscript 2 that can be put in a preloader and play only the first movie clip on the root timeline instead of all of the root's timeline
(which happens using getBytesLoaded or movieclip._framesLoaded() )? I want the preloader to just load the first movie clip and let the user
read this screen while the rest of the root timeline continues to download.
You should be able to get what you want by putting a stop(); on a keyframe at the frame where you want to wait.
