Thread: Preloading between scenes

    I have a huge (380k) Flash site (www.fafrogdesign.com) which has a preloader to load the first scene - to load all at once takes to long. The rest then load while you view the menu screen. The problem is that if you press a button to go to another scene it jumps to the point at which the movie has loaded up to - not the start of the requested scene where there is a preloader. I simply can't figure out a way to arrange the preloaders so that they work.

    I'm using the first two frames of each scene as a preloader:

    Frame one has:
    If frame is loaded (end of scene)
    got to 3

    Frame two has:
    Go to 1

    If anyone knows what I'm doing wrong or has a different way of doing it I'll buy them a pint.

    Hmm.. That should work. One thought.. If "end of scene" is a frame label, then it should be in quotes, like this:

    Frame one has:
    If frame is loaded ("end of scene")
    got to 3

    If it still does not work.. then I'm stumped. Perhaps if you would like to show me the FLA, I could provide more help.

    What is happening is that the frames are not loaded yet, so flash never gets to your little preloader check..

    put your check in the menu button [you would have to specify the scene as well..]

    this should prevent flash from trying to jump to a frame that is not there...
