I have tried for weeks now to find a simple way to add my logo and maybe text that says "now loading - please wait, etc" to the preloader, however, I have yet to find a SIMPLE way to do this. Every tutorial I have found shows how to add actionscript, or a moving progress bar with percentages, etc. These tutorials are not for designers, nor are they simple for beginers. If it truly is that difficult to add a simple logo (image) and maybe text to the default flex preloading screen (doesnt have to have the progess bar), I do not see the benefit to Catalyst/Flash Builder for designers who care about the "first appearance" of their project.
PLEASE, if anyone can walk me through the simple way of adding an image, video, text, or whatever to the loading screen that would be great. As for now I have many hours of work sitting standby because the loading page and false hope in catalyst. SURELY there must a solution.
