Another one for the Preloader problem collection

I’ve searched in the forums and read the tutorials for hours and still can’t solve my problem.
I’ve found similar problems and aplied all different solutions answered in the forums but nothing has worked for me.
I used the script :
//first Frame
bytes_loaded = Math.round(_root.getBytesLoaded());
bytes_total = Math.round(_root.getBytesTotal());
getPercent = bytes_loaded/bytes_total;
_root.loadBar._width = getPercent100;
_root.loadText = Math.round(getPercent
if (bytes_loaded == bytes_total) {

//second frame

//third frame

but the preloader doesnt even appear, first i thought it was because because i have a high speed conection but then i attached a 3mb sound file in the third frame and my preloader didn’t apeared

any help greatly apreciated :slight_smile:

Hmmm, make sure that all Instace Names are correct and that your loadBar is 100 pixels in width. Also, change the script on the second frame to: [AS]this.gotoAndPlay(1);[/AS]

Thanks Wizzard but it didn’t worked i attached the fla to see if anyone can make it work to tell me my mistake :slight_smile:
I’ll keep trying any other sugestions you give me

Thanks :}

wheres the fla?

its attached now :stuck_out_tongue:

mx04? :sigh:

ya sorry here is a link for mx.

first: you need to change the

your file IS too small. I placed a 500kb image in frame 3 and everything was fine.

thanks but where do i have that

I dont seem to find it :stuck_out_tongue:

you posted

//second frame

but you changed it in your fla

ups :stuck_out_tongue: i meant gotoAndPlay(1);


thanks i’ll try that

still doesn’t work :’(

I thinks now it’s just a matter of your file being too small.

first I added a 500kb jpeg file and then later i added sound and still doesn’t show any other sugestions?

Thanks Wizzard & McGiver :slight_smile:

Guys I found the problem it works when i open it from the html file but not from the swf it self.
Did you know this could happen?
cuz i didn’t

Thanks :slight_smile:

No I’ve never seen that, but I’m glad you got it working.

If you’re just loading the html from your computer, the preloader won’t show. If you’re using the Flash Player for your computer, you can do a ‘simulated download.’

see it for your self its kinda weird anyways first click on the swf link and don’t let it load all (its has a 3mb sound file)
and then click on the html and it will show the preloader.

wierd uh? :wink:

oh, maybe you have it cached…if so then it would skip the preloader, i see it on both the swf, and html file…

but about when do you see it on the swf? percent wise%
because i can’t even see it?

Thanks :slight_smile:
