    sample preloaders

    this is for version 4.5
    of the sample preloaders,
    the only one that works is the
    loading squares.
    when i try to open the others
    to use them,
    an error message appears saying the
    following:

    Function 'erase' not found in Script
    on line 9 this.erase()
    1 errors found

    this one is from the loading bar,
    but the message appears for the others as
    well. the line number varies.

    can someone supply me with the correct
    script for the loading bar in version
    4.5?


    also , this version doesnt have a
    percentage loader. does anyone have
    one that works in 4.5 they would be
    willing to share?

    thanx.
    -leb.

    Try this one...

    Hello leb,

    I've just put this one together. It has a percentage as well as the bar. It uses a mask and a paint object to provide the loader effect. Please let me know if you have any issues with this.

    Also, I have submitted your observations of the .erase() issue as an undocumented feature of 3DFA.

    I prefer to scale my bar using percentage of loaded.

    Here's one I was about to do a tutorial on.

    A percentage loader is VERY easy to do. The script is just
    code:

    percentage = getBytesLoaded() / getBytesTotal() * 100;
    ptext="Loading "+toString (int(percentage))+"%"
    bar.scale.x=percentage



    what I do is move the center point of a graphic to one end and it will grow from there to it's original size.
