    Preloaders

    I was wondering if someone could tell me how to make preloaders like the ones on www.wrecked.nu where the wings fill up. Thanks

    It's so fast on a fast connection, you can barely see it... But it simply looks like an expanding filling shape behind a masked layer being what you call the "wings"!

    yea, i think its just a mask.. your mask is in the shape of the object, and just scale your preloader.. verticaly

    Its a normal preloader but the percentage variable is used to tell a movieclip (the wings) to go to the same frame as the percentage is.
    So the wings movieclip is a 100 frame animation ( filling up).

    wingsMC.gotoAndStop(percentage)

    Like if you have your preloader code ON the wings mc

    onClipEvent (enterFrame) {
    // PRELOADER PART
    tb = math.round(_parent.getBytesTotal()/1024);
    lb = math.round(_parent.getBytesLoaded()/1024);
    percentage= math.round((lb/tb)*100);
    this.gotoAndStop(percentage)
    if (lb>5) {
    if (procent == 100) {
    _parent.play();
    }
    }
    }

    }
    the only prob w/ doin it that way, is that the file gets larger.. and the preloader take too much kb.
