    Hi,
    Can some one please help.

    I have followed a tutorial to make a Preloader.

    The movie has 4 layers:- 1. labels.
    2. actions.
    3. animate.
    4. bitmap.

    In the labels layer. frame 1 contains label 'preload'
    frame 24 contains label 'check'
    frame 50 contains label 'moviestart'

    In the actions layer. frame 50 contains the script:-
    stop();

    frame 24 contains the script:-

    ifFrameLoaded ("moviestart") {
    gotoAndStop("moviestart"); /movie would normally start here/
    }
    gotoAndPlay("preload");

    When I test the movie, and look at the progress using the
    Bandwidth Profiler, I can see the movie goes to frame 24 then redirects to frame 1 'preload' label , and then stops.
    It does not continue playing.

    Any ideas please.

    frame 24 contains the script:-

    ifFrameLoaded ("moviestart") {
    gotoAndStop("moviestart"); /movie would normally start here/
    }
    gotoAndPlay("preload");
    ...

    You shouldn't be using the ifFrameLoaded action, it's been deprecated since Flash 5, but does anything else strike you in the above? How about the bold stuff?

    preloader

    thanks old newbie:-

    The startmovie/moviestart was a typo. in my orig
    post which I have corrected.

    can you explain:-
    "You shouldn't be using the ifFrameLoaded action, it's been deprecated since Flash 5"

    The tutorial was from a book Osbourne The Complete Ref.
    Macromedia Flash MX

    It said to select ifFrameLoaded from the depreciated
    category.

    The problem is that the movie goes to frame 1 'preload'
    label as directed by the code in frame 24. but then just
    stops. There is no code in frame 1 in any of the layers.

    This does,nt make any sense...???

    preloader

    Hi.

    PANIC over

    I have now used:-

    if (_framesloaded >= _totalframes) {
    gotoAndPlay ("moviestart");
    } else {
    gotoAndPlay("preload");
    }
    This seems to be working.
