    How to preload multiple scenes within an excisting movie?

    Tokerman Level 1

      Hi Ned - hope you have another look at this once more - I reposted because it's so long ago I posted it the first time.


      Sorry it took such a long time to respond - my computer gave up on me. Memory and harddisk both down the drain - Bummer.


      It was helpfull and in a way it works fine, however, I have a main movie and in there I open the multiple scenes.


      If I use the preloader alone with the scenes it works, but when I want to load the preloader that should open the scenes inside the main movie it doesn't do anything.


      var l:Loader = new Loader();
      l.contentLoaderInfo.addEventListener(ProgressEvent.PROGRESS, loop);
      l.contentLoaderInfo.addEventListener(Event.COMPLETE, done);
      l.load(new URLRequest("magazine.swf"));


      function loop(e:ProgressEvent):void
          var perc:Number = e.bytesLoaded / e.bytesTotal;
          percent.text = Math.ceil(perc*100).toString();


      function done(e:Event):void
          percent = null;




      In the old situation I use a button goto frame - and on the frame there is actionscript that says:


          loadMovie("magazine.swf", 'placeholder');


      have changed that to


          loadMovie("preloader.swf", 'placeholder');


      Any ideas?
