How do I get the first frames to start immediately, before %100 load?

I have a simple script a preloader in the first scene of my swf. It is only 10 frames, 1 script, a 5k jpeg and a couple text objects and shapes.

How do I get this to start playing immediately? It seems to be taking a lot longer than the 10k or so that this part seems to consist of?

So on DSL I have about a 10 sec blank screen, then the preloader shows with 3% complete, then the percentage counter plays correctly through the load progress. (240k file total)

I just want something to pop up in seconds.

Please help.


the short answer to your question is to make your preloader as small as possible. otherwise you’ll need a preloader for your preloader.
