    Preloader not showing up

    So I have this preloader on my Flash movie and the problem is that when you go to the URL it does not show - the white page sits there for up to 15 seconds with no preloader. in the progress bar it says "transfering data from welcome runners" Please see www.welcomerunners.com

    My preloader code is:

    onClipEvent (enterFrame) {
    loaded = _parent.getBytesLoaded();
    total = _parent.getBytesTotal();
    progress = Math.round((loaded/total)*100);
    loaderInfo = Math.round(loaded/1000) + " k loaded / " + Math.round(total/1000) + " k total";
    progressBar._width = progress;
    if(loaded == total) {
    _parent.gotoAndPlay(2);
    }
    }

    Anyone???

    Why are you using _parent.getBytesTotal() ? I think that should be _root. Other than that it should work.

    Change all your _parents to _root

    well that helped but we're not quite there yet - now I still get the white page for quite a while then the preloader flashes up quickly and the page loads. So it's like the preloader waiting for the movie to load then it bounces right past to frame 2.

    So that means you are most likely using Components and you need to set them to not load in the first frame.

    Do a search and you might find examples but it's very simple.

    the thing is I am using a lot of Movie Clips Linked from the library. So If I uncheck export in first Frame do I have to put all the linked clips on the stage off to the side? this seems so sloppy. I would rather specify which frame they should load in - can I do that? I looked for this but did not find anything.

    Hi I am facing same problem with my site, could you help me please ???

    Hi, I am working on Ac3, and making a preloader here, but when I upload it to server it shows only white page with 4 dots custome loader which I haven't created once the site loaded for fully it flashes my preloader for a second and than my site will run for rest pages. I can't figure it out form where this custom preloader coming and why my preloader flashes at the end. here is my code for your reference :

    stop();

    this.addEventListener(Event.ENTER_FRAME, loading);

    function loading(e:Event):void {

    var total:Number = this.stage.loaderInfo.bytesTotal;
    var loaded:Number = this.stage.loaderInfo.bytesLoaded;

    bar_mc.scaleX = loaded/total;
    loader_txt.text = Math.floor((loaded/total)*100)+ "%";

    if (total == loaded) {
    play();
    this.removeEventListener(Event.ENTER_FRAME, loading);
    }

    }

    Please help me, Thanks.
