Need help cause i am stupid

alright, i am at my wit’s end with this, so i will take any help that i can get.

i am putting a preloader in a seperate scene in my flash movie.
for some goofy reason, it will go to the preloader and get to lik 99% and stop, and will not proceed to the next frame. i have tired EVERYTHING that i know to make it work, but it will not.

here’s my code for the preloader that i am using:

onClipEvent (enterFrame) {
loading = _parent.getBytesLoaded();
total = _parent.getBytesTotal();
percent -= (percent-((loading/total)100)).25;
per = int(percent);
percentage = per+"%";
loadBar._width = per;
if (percent>99) {
_parent.gotoAndPlay(“Scene 2”, 16);

it is placed on a moive clip that retains all the text and graphics for the preloader.

like i said the only thing that won’t work is that it will not proceed to the next frame.

i have replaced the _parent, to _root. i have used frame labels instead of (“Scene 2”, 16). i have no idea what else to do.

if anyone has anything, i will be VERY happy.

thanks all very much!
