    Preloading individual scenes

    Hello,

    I have built a web site in one whole .swf. It is split into scenes and there is a preloader for each scene. This works great.

    The preloader used is one that displays the percentage of the loaded file in the form of a bar.

    The problem is that when pre viewing the site, it will not play untill the ENTIRE site is loaded. This means that it takes a while for the site to load.

    I would like to know if it is at all possible to load each scene individually while still showing the user how much of the page is loading.

    For example - loading scene 1, then when loaded playing scene 1, while the rest of the site loads.

    If you get me?
    Can anyone help?

    You can not stop Flash from loading, and it will always load things in the order the scenes are.
    One way to check if scene 1 is loaded is to check for _framesLoaded instead of the usual getBytesTotal(); as this checks for the whole movie.

    So you have to count the frames and ask

    if(_root._framesLoaded == 124 ){
    // Do something

    ....then you know that 124 frames has been loaded and can sen the timeline to the next place.

    You can have the preloader inside or ON a movieclip so it will run independently of the current timeline. You have to use one/scene though ( in all 3 different movieclips ).

    Thanks

    Thank you for this. I shall give this a try.

    Im not entirely hot on action scripting so it'll probably take me ages to figure out how this 'll fit into the rest of my code.

    I'll come back if I have any difficulties.

    Cheers
