I have an idea for a preloader, and I need your help. Instead of making a bar that tells how much info is loaded, I am making one of those old movie intros(you know where there are lines and dots flashing around everywhere). Then when the movie is loaded, I want it to do the little count down from 3 thing and then load the movie. Can someone tell me how I make it just keep bleeping around until the movie is loaded, and then when it is finally loaded, to start the countdown and go to the movie?
Also, what size is too long for a flash site? I dont want my users to be sitting around for 20 seconds just watching blips on a screen.
