    I'm disappointed



    Ya'll should be ashamed that there is no ALIEN SMILEYFACE available, but oh well, onto the introductions...

    Greetings, Fellow Earthlings! I am not a trekkie nor some lame sci-fi geek, but a newbie to the FlashKit forums, and to be quite honest, I was only skimming through here to get some help on a faulty script, but I was inspired to join and offer my input and expertise...*ahem*

    So, HI! You can call me Smiley (or Smileyman, or Pinch as I'm also known), and I'm happy to be a part of the forums.

    well, that's it for now...Lataz!

    :D

    Alright, let's see how many of you are gonna jump over this one...

    I've been having some trouble with this code here (attached the first frame):

    <pre>
    play();
    loadMovie("http://www.cosmicscoundrel.com/swf/track1.swf", "loadTrack1");
    loadbar_size = int((loadTrack1.getBytesLoaded()/loadTrack1.getBytesTotal())*100);
    setProperty("loadbar", _xscale, loadbar_size);
    if (loadTrack1.getBytesLoaded() == loadTrack1.getBytesTotal()) {
    gotoAndStop(5);
    } else {
    gotoAndPlay(2);
    }
    </pre>

    I have an instance of this rectangle symbol titled "loadbar" but it's not resizing at all while the .swf is loading. As far as I know, everything else is fine, but I can't figure out what could be wrong with the script...

    Any ideas?

    you keep doing a load movie call when you make the test to see if it is loaded.

    Try this instead:
    frame 1: load movie
    frame 2: test to see if movie is loaded if loaded go to frame 4 else play
    frame 3: goto frame 2 and play

    It probably works for you locally because there is no lag time.

    As it is an external preloader you must lookout as the getBytesTotal() and getBytesLoaded() will often equal each other for a while before the load actually begins.

    What you need to do is to check that the totalbytes are larger than 4(as this is the initial size of an empty movieclip dragged to stage)

    if (loadTrack1.getBytesLoaded() == loadTrack1.getBytesTotal() && loadTrack1.getBytesTotal() > 4) {

    Well that's intriguing, thanks for the nugget of knowledge!
    Hopefully this time I can finally finish this damn navigation bar and get on with the rest of my website *scampers off to give it a shot*

    issue resolved!

    much thanks, guys!

    To be quite honest, none of those methods were flawless, but I reworked them a little and managed to finally get it to function properly.

    If you really want to see it in action, check out my upcoming website:

    Thanks Again!
    Now to see if I can offer my expertise to others in need...
