    generic preloader, OLDNEWBIE may be able to help on this one!

    Hi all,

    Oldnewie you mght be able to help ,e with this one. I got an answer from you ages ago but the post was deleted so lost the link to where I could find info on the topic.

    I have a flash movie and on one keyframe I have a moviclip that loads in a series of dynamic external swfs from a folder.

    My question is I know that I could put a preloader onto every single external swf but you mentioned that I can do it generically from the main timeline. Could you please send me the link to something regarding this or if anyone knows of a link or has a working example of a generic preloader then please send it through.

    I look forward to any help given.

    Thanks

    Hi Oldnewbie,

    What a relief to see you post here, I just started this thread help here
    hoping that you would land there are I didn't want to bother you at home (email that is), perhaps you have an answer there for me.

    thanks

    Going out for the night... And don't quite follow you on that thread!

    Attach some workinprogress .fla, zipped up and in MX format, so I mighr better understand what you're getting at.. I'll have a look when I'm back later, or in the morning.

    Oldnewbie, I hope you had a good night friday.

    Ok, I have attached a zip file with:
    preloader
    main
    and 3 externals

    I would like to use the same Pre-loader for my external movies, even better if the user is on MAIN, the external movies are pre-loading behind so that when USER goes to clicks to get on external movie it has already being pre-loaded...Is this possible?

    The movies I have uploaded are small to reduce download time but the concept will be exactly the same on a larger scale.
    Files (external swf's) insted of 40kb will be around 200-400kb

    THANK YOU download here
