    Including external swf file with preloader in main swf file

    daveni2002
      I'm creating a flash 3d website for a company. The idea is that there is one overall swf file - this holds the navigation and design. Once the user clicks on a button, it goes to frame 10, I have included the following script to load a swf file

      loadMovie("deepbartesting.swf", maincontent);
      this.onEnterFrame=function(){
      if(movieClipName._currentframe==5){
      movieClipName.stop();
      delete this.onEnterFrame;
      }
      }

      my problem is that this file is around 3mb. I created a preloader with it, with the code


      onClipEvent (load) {
      total = _root.getBytesTotal();
      } onClipEvent (enterFrame) {
      loaded = _root.getBytesLoaded();
      percent = int(loaded/total*100);
      percen101 = ""+percent+"%";
      gotoAndStop(percent);
      if (loaded == total) {
      _root.gotoAndPlay(2);
      ;
      ;
      }
      }

      the preloader works, but instead of going to frame 2 of that swf file, it goes to frame 2 of the overall swf that holds the navigation. Does anyone know how to get around this so that it goes to frame 2 in the same swf file as the preloader?

      Thanks for your help
