I'm new here.
I'm a Flash developer for 3, 4 years. I love it
There is a thing that i "can't" made in all of my "Flashed
life". That is, preloading SWF movies and images, before show them.
I don't put all content in one SWF. I make various movies,
then I use loadMovie(...);
That's what I do. I make a SWF that is like a preloader. Then
i put some movieclips as targets of loadMovie and hide them. Then I
use the loadBytes and totalBytes for each "movieclip target", then
I sum all values in each variable, bla, bla, bla, you know. That
"works" in some way. Because the preloader is not shown from the
beginning, it only is shown in middle of the "preloading process".
And with images, and want too, preload them before I show
them. I'm loading images in Flash, via XML.
If you, the experts can help me, I will be grateful to all of
You should use the MovieClipLoader class and it's loadClip
of loadMovie. That way you have access to onLoadProgress,
which you can use for creating preloaders. I'd suggest
MovieClipLoader class within help.
