    preload movie !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    l want to make a preload movie for my first scene , that sound nice now, my first scene has only one key frame ! because l put all the contents in one MC ! now how can l direct the preload codes to the MC? is it too complicated? or l have to copy all layers to the main scene?

    please help

    You can use a bytes preloader.
    Add two keyframes to your first scene:
    // this part goes on the first keyframe
    // put a rectangle movieclip (width = 100) onto your scene
    // call it 'bar'
    // put a dynamic textfield called 'myPercentView' on the scene
    totalBytes = getBytesTotal();
    loadedBytes = getBytesLoaded();
    myPercentage = (loadedBytes/totalBytes)*100;
    myPercentView = Math.round(myPercentage) add " %";
    bar._width = myPercentage;
    // this part goes on the second keyframe
    if (loadedBytes == totalBytes) {
    } else {
    That should be it.

    Here's a fla file. It's very simple and well commented. I got this from oldnewbie in this forum, so you can always search on oldnewbie to find more info.

    This preloader will give a percent(in numerics) and the word Loaded .
