    HELPHELPHELPHELPHELP

    llook, i know this preloaderthing is dead, have founde hunderds of tutorials to the subjekt, but none of thm seem to work for me. i have my my main flash film with a preloader in the 1 scene, once the 2 scene has loaded, gotoAndPlay("scen1", 1); works beautyfuully. but now in the main film, i have a few buttons, which each load an swf file with a soundloop in it. and obviously, because this are copleate tracks, it takes qite a while to load. all a want is a status bar and perhaps a percentage thingy telling the listener how long to go bevor the song has finished loading.
    i am loading the ext. swf via loadMovie into an empty MC on stage, but i can not get the bytesLoaded or bytesTotal of that empty MC, it doesent seem to regsiter that there is any loading goin on. if i trace bytesLoaded/total, i get 2 or 3 bytes...

    PLEASEPLEASEPLEASEPLEASE help. am close to desperation, have been fiddeling with this for days no and can not o on till with works.

    or if someone knows of a tutorial talkin about with problem, would be very very veryvery thankfull...
