That vid was a great help. When buying these preloaders they don't say you still need to use a shed load of code.
So with that can I use that method with my prebought loader and if so how?
Do I start using the code at the "done function" as I do not want the numeric % loader?
No, your not going to be able to use both, but you can replace his content with yours (the objects) as he describes.
This still isn't working right. Blimey I didn't think a preloader would be such a task. Well it is to me!
When I get the earlier suggested numeric preloader to work it seems to mess with the display of my slideshow the first time round. For example it displays the first two images both at once, then the third and once it has done that only then does it display all three images separately.
Also I was really hoping to use either a pre bought preloader, or at least something a little more creative than numbers from 1 to 100%.
Any thoughts on doing something a little nicer?
I have Fireworks and they have some nice preloaders. Seen a tutorial on how to import into Flash but no idea how to make them work and can't find a full tutorial on how to use and make work a Fireworks preloader in Flash.
Any thoughts would be sooooooooooooooo welcome ;-)
It would probably be a good idea to post the actionscipt you are using for the preloader, presuming the swf the preloader loads works properly.
