Thread: Preloading a load movie command

  1. #1
    I am trying to preload a movie thru the"load/unload movie" command "into level 1". I am loading all my spikes in the beginning and this is a huge one. How do i stop it from appearring during the loading sequence? any suggestions?

    Would this do
    Put a blank frame at the beginning of the movie you are loading with a stop action?
    Then when you want it call it with a play command from somewhere appropriate.
    also if you might want it again dont unload just send it to frame one, so it can come back instantly when called.

    You could load it, then make it invisible right away, like this

    loadMovieNum ("movie.swf", 1);
    setProperty ("_level1", _visible, "1")

    then to make it visible do

    setProperty ("_level1", _visible, "0")

    I don't have flash on this computer so im not sure abotu ayntax or anything but that should work
